There are firms that try to sell integrated software that tracks checks from and to the cage area and that can use rfid chips to know if the cheques are in play or in the player's stack and therefore detect late bets, etc.
Automatic dealer stats is all fine and dandy for those bean counters, I doubt the dealers like them but at least a mass of data is better than an arbitrary sample for timing the dealer.

I think the floor and pit personnel hate learning new software input pages and hate using tiny screens.

Is it all a wasted effort? Probably not but some casino management types react to "card counter' as if its a deadly threat. I've posted before about that downtown club that used to have a dealer who would call out the count at a low limit table. It sped things along and the casino made more money that way.
