TECHNOLOGY

 

The PrimeLine system architecture is based on Microsoft Servers and Storage.  This architecture is essentially the same as those used to support large scale, mission-critical business solutions.  Because PrimeLine utilizes this technology, the system is robust and scalable which facilitates system growth, enhanced security, reliability, availability, scalability (MSCS, MSNLB), and data mining.

 

IT departments have the flexibility of selecting the hardware server provider of their choice, either Hewlett-Packard, Dell or even Virtual Server solutions (VM Ware, MS Hyper-V).

Moreover, PrimeLine takes advantage of MS operating systems and uses them to power the race and sports book system’s Relational Database (SQL) and Application Servers.  MS Windows Technology simplifies server management, improves identity and access management, enhances storage management, provides a rich web platform, and offers the opportunity to use optimal server virtualization.  

 

PrimeLine’s administrative stations and POS terminals are Windows computers which can be easily managed over the network (no more daisy chain serial devices) and integrated to your existing systems infrastructure.

In sum, IT departments can have control of the system, where they were previously excluded, which promotes overall management efficiencies throughout the entire property.

REPORTING

 

PrimeLine has extensive data management and reporting capabilities.  Reports, available via the Manager and Terminal Manager application, are able to display all data resulting from queries, filtering and sorting.  The resulting information can output to networked printers and be saved in both MS Excel and Adobe PDF formats.  This eliminates the need for standalone dot-matrix printers. 

The reports allow an authorized user to create, display, save and print reports about the information and activity within the PrimeLine system.  In addition to the reporting required by the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s Race and Sports and Information Technology MICS (2008), PrimeLine has additional reports, virtually eliminating manual processes that have historically been time-consuming and inefficient. 

PrimeLine’s reports are tailored for multiple audiences.  While PrimeLine provides the race and sports book the information necessary to effectively manage risk, it also provides the required audit information in an easy to read format.

COST EFFICIENCIES

 

PrimeLine includes a suite of powerful management features and tools which provide immediate cost savings. As PrimeLine is hardware agnostic and communicates with off the shelf touch screen PCs, it allows the operator to leverage their corporate buying power and vendor relationships when designing their POS terminals.  As the equipment is not proprietary, the operator can utilize current IT staff to support the POS terminals similar to the hospitality segment of the business.  PrimeLine offers direct cost and labor savings by reducing administrative terminal time and resources through the use of the following features:

 

Automatic game setup

  •  Allows for the downloadable set-up of all events including half, quarter, and period wagers as well as automatic propositions   without manually setting up each style of wager.

Automatic parlay card set-up

In house parlay card printing

  • Option to eliminate parlay card waste and outside print shop fees.

Automatic sheet program

  •  Created in Microsoft Excel format for ease of use, which allows for the quick export of data to daily customer sheets.

Pari-mutuel infrastructure

  •  “Point to point” TCP/IP line is typically less expensive than a single 56k line.

Drive Sports Content to VGA displays (LCD/Plasmas) and TransLux

  •  Eliminate the need for third party systems to manage VGA displays.
