Intercard recently completed an installation of its iReader 2 Eclipse card readers, self-serve tellers and a redemption inventory system at Townline Luxury Lanes in suburban Boston. Intercard installed the systems working along with New England’s Patriot Vending and Amusements. The work is part of the continual upgrades underway at Townline, an all-in-one-entertainment destination with 48 lanes and a 2,200-square-foot redemption game room with over 50 games.
“Since we installed the Intercard system, the revenue in our game room is up 30% over the same period last year, plus I think we reduced the physical work by 50%” said Anthony DeCotis, who, with his family, owns and manages the location. “Amber (Collier, Intercard sales) and Brandan (Ponder, technician) from Intercard made the switchover from our old tokens-and-tickets system painless and easy.” Steve Belmonte was the project manager from Patriot Vending.
“It was a pleasure working with the entire team at Patriot Vending and Townline Lanes,” said Collier. “As someone who’s been an operator, it’s always exciting for me to be able to help customers increase their revenues with a new system.”
