LAKEWOOD, NJ -- The American Amusement Machine Association honored BMI Merchandise as its Supplier of the Year in an awards ceremony at the 2014 Amusement Expo in Las Vegas.

BMI Merchandise (Bonita Marie International) is a leading supplier of redemption and direct-pay products for "multi-tainment" locations, and the developer of a novel proprietary automated reorder system (ARS) for its clients.

ARS is designed to optimize redemption-game revenue without excessive inventory by shipping the appropriate products when needed. The program offers on-site set-ups, digital planogram technology and dedicated website overview capabilities. ARS interfaces with customers' inventory scan systems to support customized just-in-time product rotations.

"Our company takes pride in featuring the latest merchandise and support logistics necessary to drive successful, contemporary redemption," said BMI founder and chief executive David Katz. "We also provide multiple prize options for every platform, with merchandise that's sized, priced and relevant to today's player. We genuinely appreciate AAMA's recognition."

As part of a longtime tradition, AAMA presents its annual awards during its springtime trade shows. In addition to the Supplier of the Year, AAMA also presented its Distributor of the Year and Manufacturer of the Year awards, which went to Brady Distributing Co. and TouchTunes, respectively. The association's prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award went to Betson's Rick Kirby.
