San Diego, CA – BIS² announced today that its multi-award winning software, vizExplorer, has now been fully deployed by Australian lotteries operator, RSL Art Union to enhance its customer and operational analytics.

“We are delighted with BIS²’s advanced data visualization technology and its flexibility to meet our specific needs,” states Luke Traini, General Manager of RSL (Queensland) Lotteries. “The powerful and easy-to-use BIS² Super Graphics are showing us things in our data that we could not previously see and it is certainly becoming an important part of our analytical toolset,” adds Traini.
“RSL’s decision to fully deploy vizExplorer reinforces the power and flexibility of the BIS² technology to meet a wide-range of analytical needs across numerous industries,” said Mukesh Gordhan, BIS² CEO. “We are able to prove yet again, that with our new and highly innovative technology, we are able to install it in a matter of days and work with pretty much any dataset. This is something our customers love,” Gordhan added.

The RSL Art Union, a Queensland based lottery, has given away $200 million in prizes and has raised over $100 million for the support of the Returned & Services League of Australia (RSL) and welfare activities. The RSL Art Union has a database of over 1 million customers spreading from Australia to other parts of the world and distributes lottery tickets through numerous point-to-point channels as well as via the web and call centers.

vizExplorer contains a suite of advanced visualizations (called Super Graphics) and business performance drivers designed and developed specifically for advanced visual analytics. vizExplorer is a powerful, industry-specific solution that allows business operators to directly query their data and enables them to visualize actionable information in most areas of any data intensive business. The multi-award winning software takes advantage of an organization’s existing database or data warehouse, interrogates the database directly without the need to create a separate database or cubes. vizExplorer comprehends a multitude of data simultaneously in a natural and easy-to-use way and enables users to capture their business in one single picture and then look at relevant detail where appropriate.

About The Returned & Services League of Australia (RSL) and the RSL Art Union
Since its foundation in 1916, the Returned & Services League of Australia (RSL) has worked tirelessly to help build a better Australia. It is known for its active role in community affairs and determination to preserve their way of life. A major activity of the RSL is the provision of welfare services to ex-service men and women, their dependants and to other members of the community. Welfare includes pension and advocacy services, care facilities, home care and financial assistance to ex-servicemen and women including their dependants. In 1956 the RSL Art Union, which is a Queensland based lottery, was established to raise funds to provide these essential services. The marketing strategy of the Art Union has been the same for more than a decade and is based on quality waterfront homes on the Queensland Gold Coast, one of Australia’s most sought after residential locations. In addition to the major prize, a wide range of bonus prizes is also available. The success of this strategy is evidenced by the fact that, since its inception, the RSL Art Union has given away $200 million in prizes and has also raised over $100 million for the support of the RSL and welfare activities.
