Konami’s SYNKROS Awarded First Place in 14th Annual Gaming & Technology Awards

Las Vegas, NV — October 20, 2015

Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, received first place honors in the 14th Annual Global Gaming Business (GGB) Gaming & Technology Awards for its SYNKdot™ employee mobile dashboard available with SYNKROS™ casino management system. SYNKROS SYNKdot was awarded Best Productivity-Enhancement Technology for bringing business intelligence to a greater level of on-the-go mobility and visualization with expectation-based performance indicators specifically developed for real-time mobile monitoring.

“This most recent recognition for SYNKROS is another example of how Konami is putting its systems customers at the forefront of gaming management technology through a robust pipeline of tools and updates built upon the industry’s most reliable core architecture,” said Michael Ratner, director product management, systems at Konami. “SYNKdot gives casino managers and executives the advantage of real-time performance analytics by delivering a simple mobile interface to interact with property performance data.”

Using predetermined key performance indicators (KPI’s) customized by the property, SYNKdot captures real-time data from the SYNKROS database and interprets the information according to how well it falls within the property’s expected thresholds. Each key area of revenue displays a corresponding colored dot to express the overall health of its current status, with a green, yellow, and red dots indicating good, moderate, and weak performance respectively. For greater detail on particular areas, users can drill down into various sub-dots to focus on key performance metrics that allow them to take targeted actions.

“In a single glance, SYNKdot gives management personnel a breakdown of the casino’s current status, without the need to wade through pages of data points and statistics,” said Ratner. “SYNKdot is a sound, convenient solution for minute-to-minute site monitoring and management, and we’re thrilled to see this 2015 award added among SYNKROS’ several preceding Gaming & Technology Award recognitions.”
