Konami App Wins Gold Award

Konami App Wins Gold Award

In December, Konami Gaming announced that its Konetic mobile app has been honored for excellence in digital media. A Gold Winner at this year’s MarCom Awards, it was chosen from a pool of 6,000 entries across 43 countries.

Powered by Konami’s award-winning Synkros casino management system, Konetic gives teams a robust mobile tool to perform a variety of job tasks on the gaming floor including dispatching, jackpot processing, ticket-in/ticket-out (TITO) redemptions, progressive sign monitoring and more.

Konetic is currently live at initial launch locations, with expanding installations having been scheduled through the end of the year.

“Konetic equips casino floor personnel and technicians with rapid mobile alerts from anywhere on the property, so teams have comprehensive ability to respond, with full benefit of managed assignments, status updates, and reporting,” said Tom Jingoli, Konami executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Backed by near real-time communication with Synkros, Konetic drives data to and from casino staff in moments, so they can respond to on-the-floor needs with optimal service and efficiency. The app is available for iOS and Android, and leverages a mobile device’s built-in camera for all barcode and ticket scanning.

Casino properties have the option to enable and disable differing app modules according to their business needs.
