With reliable services, you can concentrate only on gambling
If one of your bosses is Fortuna, it is good to have a reliable and predictable supporter in the background you can always rely on. Szerencsejáték Zrt. is well aware of this, thus it deems it absolutely important that everything happens in the most precise and reliable possible way during the drawing of prizes, whether it is data recording or storage. The state-owned company with an annual turnover of hundreds of billions of Hungarian forints achieves a consistent and successful operation through responsible and efficient management; it also chose its information and communications service provider accordingly.
The company has devoted a lot of energy to modernisation and innovation in the past years. In addition to product developments, serious infrastructural developments have been made, including the modernisation of the Internet and telephone network.
“The responsibility of Szerencsejáték Zrt. is quite considerable as prizes of several billion Hungarian forints are raffled week after week. For this, we must store a substantial amount of data and we record every information accurately in our system. There is no area within the company which would not require IT, from the employees’ desk to the points of sale. Therefore, apart from the price, reliability and infrastructure are extremely important when choosing partners. Regarding IT, it is a special challenge to check the millions of submitted lottery slips simultaneously in a few minutes right after the drawing, enabling us to disclose the number of winners on our various platforms as soon as possible,” said István Erős, Department Head at Szerencsejáték Zrt.
Multiple protection for the highest-level security
Szerencsejáték Zrt. with a headcount of approximately 1,500 persons has five sites throughout the country, including Budapest and three county seats. These must be connected through the internal system to enable the secure storage of lottery data. The cooperation between Invitech and Szerencsejáték Zrt. dates back several years: initially, the Hungarian service provider provided Internet service and, a few years ago when Szerencsejáték Zrt. was looking for a hosting provider for its new online sport betting system, they chose to contract with the domestic provider again; since then, the relationship between the two companies has become stronger.
