HCLTech revolutionized a casino and hospitality giant’s operations with our integrated services

Our client, a major American casino and resort company with operations in Singapore and Macao, sought a partner to address delivery challenges across all locations. Drawing on HCLTech's extensive gaming industry experience, our client chose HCLTech for a long-term systems enhancement project.

The Challenge

Managing time, cost and quality constraints

From the outset, our client updated HCLTech on the issues. Accelerating application development to launch products and features with speed was a challenging task. In addition, legacy systems and outdated processes racked up operating costs that had to be reduced by 25%. Despite the time and cost-related constraints, application quality had to be maintained to sustain the company's market position.


The Objective

Streamlining application development services

The primary goal was to ensure high-quality application development to enhance the capabilities and SLAs of all delivery centers, positively impact customer satisfaction and drive brand loyalty. This has led to a steadfast increase in player registration through consistent mobile sign-up rates and an overall reduction in operation costs by 25%, leading to diminished downtime for every card changeover by 1 minute.
