As a collegiate basketball player, and life-long fan of the game, I wanted to share my passion with my kids, so I decided to put a court in our backyard. My wife immediately suspected it was going to be for me. There is a lot of truth to her suspicion. Given the state-of-affairs due to the pandemic, we didn’t have the option to just go to the park. The rims were all down and, in some cases, the backboards removed. Just shooting hoops at the park was something I missed very much – as I always keep a Spalding in my car. If it were not for the lifestyle changes brought on by the pandemic, I would likely have never put in that court, as my days were spent on a plane, then in a car, then into your casino for a visit. As I reflect on my own journey these past several months, I pose the question, what are you now doing differently at your casinos, in light of the pandemic, that you otherwise would not have done before?
As I’ve taken you through meetings and product demonstrations, I’ve become more and more informed as to what it was that you were looking for in the technology needed to run your business within the world as we’ve come to know it today. The truth is, many of the solutions you have been looking for as a result of the pandemic had already existed but are just now entering the spotlight given the requirements of today’s business climate.
