2017 G&L Annual Gaming & Hospitality Industry Award Recipients Announced

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gaming & Leisure, a preeminent gaming and hospitality industry organization, officially announces today the recipients of the coveted 2017 G&L Annual Gaming & Hospitality Industry Awards.

The prestigious Gaming & Hospitality Industry Awards are uniquely free to enter globally and are created and judged by the buying constituency.  Three award recipients are chosen in the categories of Partner, Transformation, and Innovation; and the 4th and highest honor award, the Platinum Award, encompasses the three categories in addition to other evaluated criteria.

The highest honor, the Platinum Award, was presented to Playersoft. Tony de Leon, CEO of Playersoft stated, “Playersoft is deeply honored to be the recipient of the G&L Annual Gaming & Hospitality Industry Awards highest honor, the Platinum Award. Given these awards are the only industry awards created by and evaluated by the G&L Board and Roundtable Colleagues, representing a vast majority of domestic gaming and hospitality technology spend, this is simply the most valuable and important award in the industry. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to publicly achieve this level of industry validation which solidifies Playersoft’s credibility and continual commitment to be the go-to vendor of choice for high quality, working technology for operators.“


Transformation Award: VizExplorer: "This award validates that our vision to develop a more open, interoperable ecosystem of solutions for the gaming industry aligns with what operators need most: cooperation among vendors to help answer their most challenging business questions. We were excited to work with Everi to build CashInsite™ with Everi IQ™ on top of the open VizExplorer platform and give operators brand new insights into player spend and loyalty habits. We are proud to accept the G&L Transformation Award and to be acknowledged as a company changing the gaming industry's technology landscape," stated Andrew Cardno, CTO & Founder of VizExplorer.

2017 Innovation Award:

BirchStreet: “We are thrilled and honored to win this year’s G&L Annual Gaming & Hospitality Industry Innovation Award with AccuBar’s patented beverage inventory and scanning technology. The BirchStreet portfolio of solutions has gone through a massive round of innovations and we are very excited about our near-term roadmap for the future,” stated Steve Markle, COO of BirchStreet. Markle went on to add, “Combining the best procure-to-pay automation system with AccuBar’s innovative beverage management system further distinguishes BirchStreet as the market leading cloud based Procure-to-Pay automation platform in Hospitality. Through AccuBar and the entire BirchStreet P2P platform, customers now have visibility into F&B sales and inventory metrics as well as improved compliance and cost savings. We appreciate the Gaming & Leisure partnership and the value it brings to our organization and look forward to its continued success.”    


Partner Award: G.H.I. Solutions: CEO of G.H.I. Solutions Claudia Winkler stated, “To be recognized by the G&L Board and Roundtable Colleagues as the Partner of the Year is the highest honor that G.H.I. Solutions could receive. When I started G.H.I. fifteen years ago, one of my goals was to deliver quality service and maintain our integrity as the best gaming / hospitality consulting company in the industry.   I believe we have achieved that goal!  I cannot accept this award without recognizing a couple of people that have partnered with me over the years to deliver outstanding service.  Danielle Carmichael, Marc Guarino and Rick Tony are currently working with me on several projects. I have had several other associates over the years – they know who they are, and I could not have achieved this level of success without them! I also could not have achieved this recognition without my clients.  We love what we do and we thank you for your continued faith in G.H.I. and the services we provide.” 

Jeannie Caruso, CEO of Gaming & Leisure and host of the G&L Roundtable stated, “The significance of these awards are the judges comprised of the G&L Board and Roundtable Colleagues which are the top innovation leaders in the industry and represent a vast majority of gaming technology spend in North America.  These distinguished judges define and create the rigorous review process, analyze the nominations and select the recipients.  It is an honor to host the industry awards each year recognizing these well-deserving recipients.”

Recipients were honored at the G&L Roundtable on Oct. 1 and will be featured in the winter 2017 edition of Gaming & Leisure.  Bart Lewin, industry renowned technologist and G&L Award’s Facilitator, will be the awards feature editor.

The G&L Roundtable is an exclusive annual conclave of industry thought leaders united to advance the landscape of the gaming and hospitality industry through the collaboration of these top industry influencers. Sixteen years later, the G&L Roundtable has evolved into a highly coveted private, peer-to-peer forum for gaming and hospitality CXOs boasting the most gaming CIOs in one private forum in North America.
