Customer search on the battlefield

Iovation advises operators to align their customer care even more on their smartphone, to bind players. it is not enough to only make the games mobile, all other aspects of a casino should also be: deposits and withdrawals, identification and authorization (for example by fingerprint scan) and further customer care. the correct approach for this, according to the report, is the so-called multi-channel experience. this means that All services related to a single mobile device group as central access to all channels and thus secure maximum comfort to the players. this means that an average customer loyalty of 89% can be achieved. companies with a weakly developed multi-channel strategy, on the other hand, would only bring it to 33%. the customer wants to be felled because he is an unfaithful being. for this, the report finds urgent words:
