Gambling Commission chooses Atos Origin to implement licence CRM systems

Atos Origin has won a new contract with Great Britain's Gambling Commission to implement the IT systems that support the Commission's licensing and compliance work for arcades, betting shops, bingo halls, casinos, gaming machine suppliers and lotteries, as well as British-based gambling websites.

Atos Origin will implement Siebel 8.0 to provide the Commission with a single, up to date view of each operator for both office-based and mobile staff. Implementation of this new CRM platform will provide Commission staff with the necessary regulatory information and intelligence at the right time and in the right place.

"Having the correct information to hand at the right time is essential for all organisations," said Anne Ware, vice president for Public Sector at Atos Origin. "For the Gambling Commission, this new solution will help them to keep gambling fair and safe for all by making it easier to ensure that operators are fulfilling their requirements."

The Gambling Commission is the independent regulator of all commercial gambling in Great Britain. It is an independent non-departmental public sector body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Atos Origin has a long-standing relationship with DCMS, the UK Government Department responsible for amongst other things, Government policy on the arts, sport, the National Lottery and the 2012 Olympic Games & Paralympic Games.
