July 7th, 2014, San Diego, CA – The Quapaw Tribe has selected VizExplorer’s hostViz™ mobile-enabled player development solution for its Downstream Casino Resort in northeastern Oklahoma. Downstream will implement the software solution on-premise to empower its casino hosts at the 70,000-square-foot venue, which features over 2,000 slot machines.

“VizExplorer’s hostViz provides us with a powerful, mobile tool to improve our hosts’ player development efforts without the need to send data to the cloud,” said John Fernandez, Director of Player Development of Downstream Casino Resort. “That capability was paramount to us as we sought to purchase software solutions which will increase profitability while protecting tribal sovereignty.”

“We’re very pleased that the Quapaw Tribe has chosen the VizExplorer technology as it seeks a data-analytics-driven solution to increase efficiency of its player development program,” said Chris Korpi, VizExplorer Assistant Vice President of Native American Relations. “We are especially honored that Quapaw has the confidence in our ability to support tribal sovereignty, and look forward to ensuring the excellent team at Downstream Casino Resort can take full advantage of hostViz’s advanced capabilities.”

VizExplorer’s hostViz product puts powerful information in a highly efficient way into the palm of every casino host’s hand. It enhances a host’s ability to reward players while identifying and tracking known and unknown players with lift potential – all in real time. The software, designed for both desktop and mobile devices, contains inter-active casino floor maps that allow hosts, managers and marketing executives to view live activity on the casino floor, locate specific players on the floor, view player activity, including a player’s history – all at their fingertips. hostViz leverages VizExplorer’s extremely powerful Data Integration Hub, which enables casinos to easily access data from multiple sources, without the time and expense of building a data warehouse. hostViz also gives casino operators the option of storing data on premises or in the cloud depending on their needs. In addition, the software allows casino operators to utilize all player data without incurring any additional data-integration costs.
