Certified Scoring Systems

In order to provide improved compatibility and support, many of our scoring partners have chosen to have their systems certified by CDE Software. This process involves the scoring company providing CDE Software with a system to do constant testing and compatibility checks. This also allows for improved integration as well as diagnosis of any issues that may come up, in order to better identify appropriate action and resolution.

The following is a list of our Certified Scoring Systems:

  • AK Microsystem Touchdesk
  • Brunswick Sync
  • Brunswick Vector Plus
  • Brunswick Vector
  • Brunswick Classic
  • QubicaAMF Conqueror Pro
  • QubicaAMF Conqueror 2.07+
  • Steltronic Focus

Non-Certified Scoring Systems

Some of our scoring partners have either chosen to not be certified, have not yet begun the process or have let their certification lapse. These systems should perform very well with our products, however diagnosis of issues that may come up may be more difficult to troubleshoot or may be delayed in verifying compatibility checks.

The following is a list of our Non-Certified Scoring Systems:

  • Computerscore Matrix (formerly Vantech or Ebonite Scoring)
  • Joystick Front Desk
  • Purrfect Desk
  • Switch
