Namco Funscape endorses SCAN COIN ICP Active-9 coin sorter from SUZOHAPP

Namco Funscape is a popular family attraction that hosts a wealth of indoor family activities, such as bowling, games, pool and dodgems, to name just a few. Each visit promises hours of fun. Given the volume of transactions made throughout the facility, it is a challenge for the management to quickly and accurately process coins and tokens each and every day.

Namco Funscape at the Trafford Centre in Manchester leverages the SCAN COIN ICP Active-9 from SUZOHAPP to optimally manage their coins and tokens.

The SCAN COIN ICP Active-9 is the only sorter in the market that can sort 9 different denominations into separate bags. It makes use of advanced sensor technology to provide fast, accurate and versatile coin sorting. Furthermore, invalid / fraudulent coins or tokens are always rejected.

This latest generation coin sorter states exactly what it does in its name - Intelligent Coin Processing: ICP. It is designed to be user-friendly and reliable, thus ensuring optimal operational uptime. The custom configuration program enables operators to simply change the coin sorting program and thus stipulate which types of coins / tokens are sorted into which bags.

Tommy Nasser, General Manager of Namco Funscape, highlights the benefits of the ICP Active-9, “This is an extremely reliable product and the coin sorting speed is fantastic. The installation and training were exemplary. The ICP Active-9 is simple to use and its speed saves us valuable time. The ICP Active-9 fits to our needs perfectly.”

John Vallis, Sales Director for SUZOHAPP in the UK and Vice President of Amusement Sales EMEA, adds, “The ICP Active-9 is the toughest sorter in the business. This is because its robust, cast-iron base was developed in conjunction with makers of castings for Formula One racing. This is the single biggest reason why the ICP Active-9 can continuously and reliably process over one million coins per shift.”

Another big plus for operators of the ICP Active-9 is the simple-to-use software that comes with it.  Operators have all the statistics they need depicted in easy-to-understand graphics. They have access to all historical data as well.    

“Our goal has been to create a solution that sorts the right coins into the right bags in the right amounts. This endorsement by Namco Funscape in Manchester shows that the ICP Active-9 does exactly that,” concludes Mr. Vallis.
