Both industry leaders in their fields, Playsafe Systems and Semnox have been working together for 7 years now to provide fully integrated cash and card systems such as the Thomas 8012C Paystation – a trend that has only increased in the current climate.
After taking the market by storm in 2014 with the launch of the Thomas 8012C Paystation, Playsafe Systems and Semnox have continued to work together to provide cash and card systems, with Covid-19 creating even more demand for cashless solutions.
The 8012C Paystation is a solution that provides for cashless without compromising the operator’s ability to handle cash, accepting banknotes, coins, bank cards and contactless payments all fully integrated with the Semnox Cashless System, allowing operators to dispense and reload Semnox Funcards.
“Paystation is a great example of how two excellent companies can come together to emerge with a robust and business-friendly solution. Being one of the best cashless system providers in the market, and with continued support from Playsafe, we are hoping to reach out to a larger lead base in the UK/Ire land entertainment market and help businesses switch to Semnox,” explained Vinayaka Kamath, Head of Semnox – Middle East and Europe. “The 8012C Paystation combines reliable and secure cash handling as well as being fully integ rated with the Semnox Cashless System. This allows venues to dispense and reload Smart Cards, such as Semnox Funcards, via its built-in card reader/writer/dispenser.”
Ian Fuller, MD, Playsafe Systems added: “We are always looking to ensure that our systems are fully integrated. This integration also includes work with other leading system suppliers including Cashless system providers such as Semnox. Looking at the worldwide install base and growth of Semnox installations in the UK, it was a no brainer to ensure we worked closely with Semnox. Our trusted Thomas 8012C Smartcard PayStation is the perfect partner when it comes to dispensing and revaluing Semnox Funcards. The Thomas 8012C accepts banknotes, coins, bank cards and contactless payments, allowing users to simply and easily purchase and revalue and return a Funcard for a deposit. The highly reliable PayStation is fully linked to both the Quantum and Semnox systems, ensuring all transactions and system updates are processed in real time.”
Fuller also noted that the current pandemic has accelerated cashless uptake. “Talking to several of our customers, Covid appears to be the time that the industry is really starting to embrace cashless, be it in stalling Quantum TITO in their AGC’s, installing cashless acceptance on Thomas Change Machines and PayStations, or rolling out Semnox across a whole park. Cashless is certainly here to stay and we look forward to many more productive years partnering with Semnox,” he concluded.
