Playtech Retail, the land-based division of Playtech, is to begin deploying its Neon casino management system across all 55 of Grosvenor’s UK casinos.
The deal, once complete, will mean that more than 90 per cent of UK casinos will have selected Playtech Retail to supply their casino management system.
Grosvenor Casinos will use Neon to manage customers and track player data, guest relations and cash desk operations, and support the group’s responsible gaming, anti-money-laundering and security activities. The group will also implement the Neon Analytics business intelligence platform, including a suite of custom dashboards designed to meet the specific needs of its venue and head office management teams.
Grosvenor’s Neon system will deliver a browser-based HTML5 user interface via a Microsoft Azure Cloud platform. Playtech will provide a comprehensive implementation and management service for the software and platform.
Martin Sykes, managing director of Playtech subsidiary Intelligent Gaming Systems, said: “We are proud to partner with the UK’s largest casino operator and cement our position as the fastest-growing supplier of systems to retail casinos.
“This project is another example of our unique consultative approach. We performed an extensive scoping exercise to analyse Grosvenor’s requirements and worked closely with the group’s operational experts to identify several opportunities to improve our systems and the casinos’ business processes.”
Richard Playle, director of finance at Grosvenor Casinos, said: “We needed a partner that could match our technical vision and quickly deliver a solution which supports the needs of a wide range of users across a geographically and operationally diverse estate.
“We evaluated all leading systems vendors and selected Playtech based on their industry-leading technical architecture, unrivalled operational expertise and willingness to customise Neon to drive our business forward. We are delighted to begin the roll out of the system across our estate as part of an ongoing programme to modernise our IT systems to improve availability, enhance our customer service and reduce operating costs.”
