Gaming & Leisure Awards Single Digits The Platinum Award

LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Sep 30, 2013) – The thought leaders at Single Digits are at it again. Single Digits was named the winner of the Platinum Award in the 2013 Gaming & Leisure Gaming and Hospitality Awards.

The award is the highest honor bestowed by the advisory board of technology executives at Gaming & Leisure. It is given to the company that displays Innovation (original thinking in solving business problems), Transformation (dramatically changing the technology landscape), and Partnership (understanding clients’ problems and creates solutions for today and for tomorrow).

Single Digits’ president Stephen Singlar accepted the award after presenting to a packed room of hospitality and gaming technology executives on the major trends and shifts in networking.

“We are honored and thrilled to win this award. The Gaming & Leisure board of advisors are visionaries who shape the industry, so for them to identify the uniqueness of our approach is particularly humbling,” said Singlar.

“Our Wi-Fi authentication strategy has resonated particularly well in the gaming industry. CIO’s value the scale and flexibility it brings to their operation, as well as the additional revenue stream it provides. This acknowledgement from Gaming & Leisure will allow us to connect with other members of the gaming and hospitality community we’ve not yet met. As you might expect, given the ‘partnership’ aspect of the Platinum award recognition, these future connections and relationships are something we value tremendously.”

Single Digits’ Open Network Exchange is the hub that connects users to a network, database service providers and app creators to large networks of users, and property owners to new revenue streams. Through the easily configured interface, network owners can peruse a menu of options and “flip the switch” to activate new services in their network.

These services include advertising partners like JiWire to drive revenue, rewards programs to drive loyalty, or social media partners to drive authentication and revenue options.

Single Digits operates the network as a neutral party to authenticate users, store credentials, set up policy and assign bandwidth, determine pricing and payment, track clicks, and distribute revenue appropriately.

The implication for property owners is enormous. By bringing these applications into their network, guests can authenticate using their preferred application, while property owners share in the revenue associated with log-in’s, downloads, and advertisement clicks while online.
