ST. LOUIS, MO -- Intercard points out that Southeast Asia is a growing market for theme parks and family entertainment centers, and reports that demand is increasing for cashless technology. From Sept. 19 through 21, an Intercard team headed by Asia Pacific sales manager Jerry Heinz will introduce the company's latest cashless technology at the Thailand Amusement & Attraction Parks Expo 2019 in Bangkok.

Visitors to booth D19 at Bangkok's Impact Exhibition Center will find out why leading attractions in Southeast Asia as well as Australia, India and China rely on Intercard for cashless technology that boosts revenues and enhances customer service.

Intercard develops all of its hardware and software in-house, and has development teams in the Philippines and in St. Louis, MO. At the show, Intercard will demonstrate its versatile i3 reader and the Edge Mobile App Collection for arcade management. "The mobile future is here," said Intercard's Heinz, "and The Edge lets operators make the most of it."

The Edge Mobile App Collection builds on iService, which Intercard introduced in 2017. iService makes it simple to track and manage every arcade game at one or more locations. Users can remotely take a game out of service for maintenance, and technicians can use it to track repair information and when the game was placed back into service. All information is automatically updated on the server and in the cloud.

With the addition of two new apps, the Edge Mobile App Collection helps Intercard customers do even more with mobile technology. Intercard Upshot is a card management app that FEC proprietors can provide to their customers under their own brand. The app allows customers to easily add value to multiple game cards directly from their mobile devices. This means there is no need to interrupt the game action to go to a kiosk, and users can even recharge their cards before arriving at the center.

The Inventory app assists staff in maintaining their merchandise and redemption inventory by providing easy access to inventory logs and the ability to adjust inventory. All of this can be done from an Android or iOS mobile device, reducing the labor and equipment cost of inventory management and eliminating mistakes.

Jerry Heinz will be available to demo the Edge Mobile Apps Collection and other Intercard products. He can be reached at jheinz@intercardinc.com by those wishing to schedule a meeting.

The Thailand Amusement & Attraction Parks Expo, TAAPE 2019 is a trade show dedicated to the promotion of the amusement and attractions industry in Southeast Asia.
