The company’s award-winning casino management system is featuring a top lineup of technology, including its Synk Vision facial recognition, all-inone Title 31 AML system Synk31, and SynkConnect player mobile app.
These advancements and more will be available for guests to experience firsthand throughout G2E 2019. Konami’s new Synk31 is a comprehensive Title 31 Anti-Money Laundering (AML) system that allows permissioned Synkros administrators to gather, track, review, and complete all AML requirements, including Multiple Transaction Log (MTL), Negotiable Instrument Log (NIL), Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), Currency Transaction Reporting (CTR), Know Your Customer (KYC) and more.
Synk31 leverages Synkros’ industryleading data architecture to capture and compile all necessary AML information with robust, real-time results. It supports automated delivery of IRS forms, for maximum ease and efficiency.
In addition, Synk 31 provides true case management, empowering administrators to compile all reporting, time stamped notes, files documents, screenshots, photos, videos, and emails associated with particular patron or incident in one spot.
Meanwhile, SynkConnect is a “cardless” player tracking convenience. This touchless, multi-channel solution empowers casino players with a variety of secure methods to augment or replace a traditional player loyalty card at the EGM, including their personal mobile device, fobs, a room key, and more.
These alternative authentication methods can be delivered through Near Field Communication(NFC) embedded within a traditional card reader, and/or via QR code for smartphone users.
Konami has also developed SynkConnect Mobile as a robust mobile application to give players all the benefits of touchless authentication.
This cardless player tracking convenience empowers players to login to any equipped EGM through the app and enjoy all the tools to view and manage their loyalty account from anywhere.
Properties can customise the SynkConnect app options to mirror the property brand or link it with an existing app.
Konami’s SynkConnect helps transform how casino players connect and engage with the casino’s loyalty program using the technology conveniences already interlaced through their daily life and the guest experience.
With more new ways for players to connect, SynkConnect helps eliminate barriers caused by dependence on traditional loyalty cards and increase “carded” play activity through a number of convenient methods of authentication.
