The Abacus Fusion Platform is embedded in the retailer ecosystem such that lottery sales and services are totally integrated in the retail processes, from brick and mortar up to e-commerce and mobile services. This ensures the lottery's operational and financial processes are seamlessly implemented and integrated into the retail ecosystem.
Abacus also makes sure that all lottery requirements such as security, integrity, safety and age control are met.
The Abacus Management Portal handles the setup of the environment, enabling real time control of every touch point connected through the Abacus Fusion Platform.
Draw based games, instant tickets and digital games are all part of the Abacus portfolio, and can be activated at any time.
The Abacus gateway abstracts the connection between retail and lottery. This ensures any change in the connected lottery gaming or other backend systems can be implemented without any impact to the retailer's estate. This removes risk in the environment and protects both lottery and retailer during transition.
