We were truly excited when we signed up for GHRC … I can honestly say that what was delivered far exceeded our expectations! The initial Casino Management VL provided valuable insight into a relatively closed-door topic and their analysts are second to none…a true pleasure to work with. We look forward to future GHRC efforts, as well as a lasting strategic partnership with Info-Tech.
CIO, Mohegan Sun, Connecticut
For as long as I can remember, operators have had limited research available on the products used in the Gaming & Hospitality industry. We have been limited to information provided by vendors, personal experience, and word of mouth. The GHRC is filling a gap that helps me see a side by side, unbiased comparison of these products. I find this research invaluable in planning the next steps of our company’s development.
