Unlike most other companies providing software solutions for gaming, our singular focus is casino operations analytics. When you engage with us, you will find a professional, dedicated, and responsive team. We also work diligently to keep your costs low. We strive to continually improve our service and do not charge additional fees for version upgrades or software support.
Our beta site was Barona Casino, operating 2,000+ machines near San Diego, CA, where we spent over a year testing and proving the value of our underlying analytical processes. This was before we had the user interface application, just spreadsheets of data—nothing pretty. Barona realized we were on to something special, and they started to change their thinking about slot analytics. This was because what we were doing was so different, but it also made a lot of sense. Today, Barona is still using the service and achieving great results.
After proving we had an analytical process that could really drive improved results, we next architected our user-interface application and named it Slotfocus. Version 1.0 was released in late 2011, and we completed our first new deployment on New Year's Eve that year. In 2012, we continued to add new subscribers, mostly by referral, and rolled out some process and feature enhancements. In late 2012, we mapped out some major changes and enhancements for a 2013 release of version 2.0. In late of 2014, we took a major leap forward by migration our user-interface platform to Tableau (a great data visualization tool) and debuted version 4.0 at G2E in Las Vegas to tremendous praise.
Today, we remain proud to offer Slotfocus, and we look forward to earning your business!
