Key IS projects this year: Development of digital signage in retail; website development; bringing corporate/desktop support in-house.
NZ Lotteries is planning a major redevelopment of its MyLotto website that has attracted more than 130,000 registered players.
The NZ Lotteries Commission (NZ Lotteries) was established in 1987 to raise money for New Zealand’s community through the provision of chance-based games.
As a government-owned organisation operating under the Gambling Act 2003, NZ Lotteries must adhere to stringent reporting, monitoring and compliance requirements, necessitating strong ICT enablement and provision. Evan Lawrey stepped into the role of CTO from a previous post at NZ Lotteries in December 2009.
The goal of NZ Lotteries is to increase engagement with New Zealanders around its games, through compelling communications and experiences at its retail and online channels.
There are a number of key projects that require significant support and input from the IT team. These include the development and implementation of a digital signage solution in retail that will provide a fresh, modern look in-store and help to influence customer’s decision making at the point of purchase.
Online, NZ Lotteries is planning a major redevelopment of its MyLotto website that has attracted more than 130,000 registered players. The focus is to enhance the player experience, improve usability and update the current content management solution.
Internally, the focus is on improving IT delivery to the business through transitioning the corporate/desktop support function in-house.
