An interview with MEI’s Marketing Director, Chuck Reed, and Product Manager, Don Finley
Sound bites from the podcast:
“The Advance 5000 is MEI’s most recent solution to enable those cashless transactions at the machine. It replaces our existing product, the RDP, which has been in the market for a number of years. ”
“We’ve made it quite easy to add cellular communications to the base unit. And we’ve greatly expanded those cellular options to now include AT&T’s 2G and 3G spectrum as well as Verizon’s CDMA.”
“We’ve also designed the device to be scalable from the future proofing perspective. As new communications technology develops, we’ve tried to anticipate those developments thru a broadly used Linux platform and hardware design that anticipates communications will continue to evolve.”
“That same level of modularity, scalability and functionality will translate to its online telemetry solution as well. Because the platform is so flexible, if operators decide to add MEI’s remote monitoring solution to their operation the changes won’t disrupt their current operations. ”
How can operators order the Advance 5000?
We’d like to encourage operators to call our dedicated sales team or their Authorized MEI distributor to learn how to get started with their Advance 5000 cashless solution. In addition to our new telemeter we have a variety of cashless bezels for operators to choose from to Give Your Machine a Voice.
