Long-time Middle Eastern FEC operator Yamin Family Centers recently opened up its second store in Lebanon, and both installations now feature the Sacoa Playcard wireless game network and the group’s latest POS redemption management systems.

"Revenues have increased way beyond our expectations and hidden costs have been eliminated," said George Yamin, president of Yamin Family Centres. "Use of the system opened the door for an immediate expansion of our chain."

Madaen Star Group, meanwhile, has opened a large size FEC in Al-Kharaj. Located 80km from Riyadh, this is the second FEC for this company, and the first with Sacoa, after the company was "unsatisfied" with its previous contract.

In addition, Saudi Marketing Company opened its first FEC in Beirut Mall, Lebanon. This is the group’s third project with Sacoa, while a forth one is already committed and will be up and running by May 2009 in Saudi Eastern province of Dammam.
