Casinos are hugely popular in many parts of the world. In the recent times, Casinos offer much more in terms of entertainment that go beyond traditional gambling to include dining, spas, sports arenas and movie theaters.
While the focus of casinos is on providing a safe environment for the guests as they enjoy fair gambling, protection of all the assets in the casino is also a top priority. With wide-ranging services in Casinos, there is a vast number of assets that need to be tracked, monitored and maintained ranging from poker and blackjack tables to dice and chips. Busy casinos face challenges in physically tracking their assets at all times while ensuring operational efficiency and attending to their guests.
Casinos need smart asset tracking solutions to:
- Efficiently monitor gaming equipment
- Carry out inventory checks and audits
- Track remote equipment in different locations
- Prevent thefts
Do away with the old spreadsheets
The old system of spreadsheets and manual files mean exhaustive amount of data that needs to be typed in every time there is a new addition in terms of casino equipment. With technical issues such as software issues or hardware breakdowns, excel sheets and documents can become corrupt and lost. This can mean plenty of time and resource allocation to re-enter the data. With typing and spelling errors or missed out information, there can be costly mistakes and duplicate entries.
Besides, maintenance of all assets in the casino so that they are in top working order is important at all times to ensure maximum productivity and profits. The Casino company’s bottomline depends on customer satisfaction and in ensuring all machines including operating at their maximum efficiency. Slot machines, roulette wheels, drop slides and baccarat tables and all other assets have to be serviced regularly and records maintained. The currency of Casinos- the chips- are the most important assets of all and need to be carefully tagged to get an accurate estimate of transactions.
