Casino Schedule Ease introduces new Face Station technology

17 September 2020

Nobody can accuse Kelly Grillo Sr. of not being proactive.

Like most land-based gaming vendors, the CEO of Casino Schedule Ease was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shutdown of casino floors all over the world. Since 1994, the Florida-based company has been providing automated scheduling systems that generate its schedule from a graphical representation of the casino floor, or as they call it a "road-map.”

With all of his casino customers closing their doors for over two months, Grillo Sr. made the difficult decision to not only not invoice his partners during April, May and June, but he devised a new product that would be safe and secure to use when the properties began to reopen.

Suprema FaceStation 2 is the most advanced face recognition terminal providing loads of the world’s best features. Powered by Suprema’s latest innovation in facial biometrics, FaceStation 2 eliminates the need for employees to touch the time machine station when they clock in and out.

As an added bonus, Casino Schedule Ease is upgrading all of its current clients free of charge and handing out nearly 30,000 free stylus pens for all employees to use and eliminate the transmission of germs when they upgrade to the new FaceStation.

“We thought it was the right thing to do,” said Grillo Sr. “We understand this has been a real difficult time for all of us involved in the casino industry and we knew this was something that would be a huge benefit.”

Grillo Sr. said they were able to take the new technology and seamlessly integrate it into the existing systems they use. It features a private cloud hosted solution and it works with three major browsers. FaceStation 2 offers a massive memory capacity to manage the largest number of users in its class. A single unit of FaceStation 2 can accommodate up to 30,000 users, 50,000 face image logs and 5 million text logs.

“In its simplest form, facial recognition basically takes data points, just like biometric,” he explained. “With biometric, it’s not taking a photo of your fingerprint, it’s taking data points, which get stored binarily. The same thing happens with facial recognition.”

Grillo Sr. said that so far his company has received great feedback about the product and free upgrade they are offering.

“Our clients love it because it shows they care about their employees and their employees feel safer and secure as they come back to work,” he said. “With all that’s gone on the last few months, that’s really, really important.”
