Robust, secure, and efficient
What unites the casino and cash center segments is their common need for security and reliable efficiency. Increasing automation is one way to attain these goals. Take the case of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa, Florida. With over 5,000 slot machines, this is the largest of the Seminole Tribe’s six properties in Florida. Stopping operations at a casino to service machines or upgrade them is not an option. Off-peak maintenance and migration to new systems, on-site training, and on-call service are just some of the things large casinos, like the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, look for.
A need for robustness, speed, and service that minimizes downtime brought this property into partnership with G+D more than a decade ago. From one BPS® 500, it graduated to three BPS® 1000s, and now operates seven M5s across their Florida properties.
Three generations of G+D products later, Director of Operations Larry Lizanich is clear about the benefits. In a brochure summarizing the case, he says, “We chose G+D because we appreciated their service excellence. Our count room runs smoothly, and that helps us stay within budget and keep our employees happy.”
The cash-in-transit business is similar in that it too relies on taut operations. Marginal gains in efficiency unlock huge value for all stakeholders. Chicago-based CIT services and armored truck player Davis Bancorp partnered with G+D in a trial of its new Bander Delivery Module for the BPS® C5. The module automatically bands and labels the most common denominators it is sorting. For example, if it is handling lots of $5 notes in a particular shipment, it will band them together. This makes the task of the operator much easier, with gains that accrue down the line in terms of productivity and time saved. The trial went well for all concerned. “Like us, G+D wants to do things better: not just faster, but also safer and with improved processes,” said J.R. Davis, President of Davis Bancorp.
