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:

  • QubicaAMF Conqueror X
  • QubicaAMF Conqueror Pro
  • QubicaAMF Conqueror
  • AK Microsystem Touchdesk
  • Brunswick Sync
  • Brunswick Vector Plus
  • Brunswick Vector
  • Steltronic Focus
  • US Bowling Pulse

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:

  • Switch
  • Twelve Strike Central Desk PRO

Some of the older scoring systems, such as AMF Accuscore, Accuscore Color, Accuscore Plus or Brunswick AS80/AS90 scoring systems are generally compatible by replacing the front desk console with a solution by our scoring partners. Such solutions include AK Microsystems Touchdesk.
