The Blueprint team will be at ACOS not only to showcase some of the company’s latest and greatest units, but also to garner crucial customer feedback and the market insights needed to best drive progress in the year to come. Gavin Wright, head of UK sales, explains.
Coinslot: What are you looking to get out of ACOS?
Gavin Wright: “The Blueprint team is looking forward to this year’s ACOS at Olympia. ACOS provides the perfect platform to catch up with customers and discuss our plans for late 2018 and early 2019. The landscape for our customers in an ever-changing one and it is paramount that we understand and satisfy the needs for our customers, especially around the pressing issues of legislation, cashless payments, SBG, and connectivity – to name a few.
“Above all this, we are really looking to see how we can work better with our customers. Recent events have demonstrated the necessity for our communication with our customer’s needs to be redefined and ACOS provides us with an ideal opportunity to drive this forward.
“At Blueprint Machines, it is now very much business as usual, with some seriously exciting products, menus and games on show at ACOS. Our B3 and Cat C AGC products are now driving income to new levels and it is key to our design team to continue this progress and deliver even better game content to maintain our market leading position.”
CS: What products will you be showcasing and what do you perceive as being the main talking points at the show?
GW: “Our ACOS Party is normally the main talking point as this is a particularly sociable networking show. This year, we are taking customers to the renowned Bluebird Chelsea restaurant and this will provide the perfect party atmosphere where everyone can relax and catch up with acquaintances.
“Product-wise we have a few things under wraps to unveil at the show, but what we can talk about is our Paws of Fury, a Community Game which is set to be launched at the end of October on our Community CashVault and Bar X Multi game Menus. Paws of Fury has had some fantastic traction across our initial test roll out and we are confident that it will be the next thing to the highly successful King Kong Cash Community, Luck of the Irish community and highly acclaimed Eye of Horus and Deal or no Deal games, which came out earlier this year.
“Building on our B3 success we have the following exciting titles;Wish Upon a Leprechaun, Genie Jackpot Megaways and Worms Reloaded, and for Pub Cat C customers; Luck of the Irish Free Spins, Wish Upon a Leprechaun, Bar X Super Spins Gold – all of this will ensure Blueprint product delivers on the our market leading position. Cabinet-wise the Alpha Star has had a ‘Grey’ makeover, to go alongside our Aurora Noir; to provide a fresh look to show off of some of our new menu options, such as the Black Edition B3 and the new Merkur Magic menu. Plenty to come and talk to us about, we hope to see you all there.”
