SYSTEMS: Intercard’s iReader boosts Texas FEC refit
Intercard has been highlighting a number of its recent installations, including the large-scale installation of its iReader Eclipse readers at Schulman’s Movie Bowl Grille in Bay City, Texas.
The new Schulman’s Movie Bowl Grille opened in May 2017 and is the veteran movie chain’s second iteration of its innovative FEC concept. MBG is a hybrid family entertainment centre with eight movie screens, 12 lanes of bowling, an arcade with 42 games, a redemption centre and a full-service restaurant.
Jonathan Wilson of Intercard handled the installation, which includes 60 iReader Eclipse readers, iTeller automated tellers and a redemption station that interfaces with the FEC’s Ready Theatre Systems POS system. Customers can use the same debit card for games, redemption, movie tickets and concessions.
“Intercard had the features we wanted for our arcade and redemption room. Their system integrated seamlessly with our facility and other systems” said owner, Mark Schulman.
“The iTellers are EMV-certified and also work with mobile payments platforms from Apple, Android and Samsung, ” added Jason Mitchell of Intercard’s North America sales group.
