Gaming Laboratories International streamlines processes enabling lotteries to do business faster, more efficiently and cost effectively

15 July 2014

LAS VEGAS -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Gaming Laboratories International, LLC (GLI), the world’s leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, has been working diligently across its global locations to facilitate business in the lottery industry to be faster, more efficient and more cost effective than ever before.

The initial push began in 2011 when GLI released its “GLI-23: Video Lottery Terminals” standard. Part of the GLI Standards Series, GLI-23 has helped to reduce supplier R&D time and costs.

Since then, GLI’s landmark tools, such as Point.Click.Submit.SM, Point.Click.Transfer.SM and the award-winning and patented GLI Link have all further helped to reduce supplier costs and speed time to market.

Then in 2012 GLI launched its Professional Services division, with a team of veteran IT and lottery experts who have been working with lottery operators, regulators and suppliers the world over.

“We are committed to helping suppliers, regulators and operators increase efficiencies, improve processes, reduce costs and enhance their bottom line. There is absolutely no team in the world with the depth of experience, knowledge and ability as the team we have carefully assembled at GLI Professional Services,” said GLI Canada CEO Salim Adatia.

The Professional Services division has four main areas of services, each specifically designed to make doing business in the lottery industry faster and more effective. Those categories are: Project Management; Governance, Risk and Compliance, including World Lottery Association Security Control Standards (WLASCS) and ISO 27001 Information Security audit and certification; GLI University Training; and Technical Services.

GLI’s Professional Services division has consulted with lotteries on a wide range of topics spanning the complete spectrum of the lottery industry, from security assessments to project management, IT strategy and implementation and WLA and ISO standards.

GLI’s Professional Services division recently completed a major project management support assignment for the Atlantic Lottery Corporation as the Corporation was replacing its Video Lottery system. James Porter, COO & CTO, said, “I strongly recommend GLI's Professional Service Team. In our engagement, GLI was contracted to provide project management services for a very significant corporate initiative. The project required them to work with multiple vendors in a technically complex environment. GLI’s project management skills and process improvement abilities allowed them to perform at a senior program level to coordinate multiple sub project streams.”

GLI’s Professional Services team has also lent its expertise and insights to a host of conferences and symposiums. For example, last month, Professional Services Director Gregory Doucette spoke at the Canadian Gaming Summit on topics of Network Risk Assessment, Field Testing & Inspection and Auditing the Cloud. This August, Doucette will speak on a panel at Scientific Games Lottery Symposium, addressing WLASCS and ISO 27001 standards, as well as the benefits for U.S. lotteries.

GLI is a recognized certification service entity for WLASCS in North America. WLA recently waived its certification fee for lotteries that want to attain certification to the WLASCS standard. This three-year fee waiver will help drive certification, and GLI’s Professional Services division has a team that is WLA authorized and ready to help lotteries through the important certification process.

GLI is a member of WLA, NASPL, CIBELAE and the European Lotteries.
