Following the official homologation of its casino management system MyACP, Octavian announced the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement for Peru with AF&J Electronics, headed by managing directors Fredy Gamarra and Alfonso De La Cuba.
The latest developments in the Peruvian gaming market call for comprehensive casino management systems to be implemented in all gaming operations nationwide. By ultimately putting every single machine in operation under governmental control, the authorities are taking the final step towards a thoroughly regulated gaming market. The transition period has already commenced and Octavian is right there in the market with the ideal product solution: Accounting Control Progressives System – MyACP.
Fabian Grous, President of Octavian de Argentina, explained: “Our casino management system MyACP met all necessary requirements in order to be officially certified and homologated by MINCETUR. The homologation was obtained on August 11 and announced by Ingeniero San Roman Benevante (Slots and Casinos General Director of the Ministry for Foreign Trade and Tourism) during the opening conference of ‘The New Peru Gaming Show’. The agreement with AF&J shows our commitment to a close cooperation with our customers in order to provide the best service and support for their casino management requirements”, said Grous.
The homologation now enables Peruvian operators to use the MyACP system in their gaming operations as a comprehensive management and reporting tool that fully complies with the new regulatory framework that will be valid as of 2012 for the Peruvian gaming market. MyACP is only the third system to be granted full official homologation through MINCETUR and as such enjoys a very privileged position in this new market segment.
Fredy Gamarra, Managing Director AF&J Electronics, looks back on a vast experience in the gaming and tourism industry. He said: “The recent developments in the Peruvian gaming market call for products that combine high levels of quality, flexibility and reliability. Many private operators as well as governmental organisations all over the world have chosen the MyACP system for their casino management purposes and trust its controlling, reporting and operational functionalities. Not only does this international success prove the reliable and flexible performance of the system, but also the top quality service and support provided by the Octavian support team.
Alfonso de La Cuba, Managing Director AF&J Electronics, supports his view: “This new distribution agreement brings our Peruvian customers a first class product offering that ideally complies with the requirements of MINCETUR and at the same time facilitates the management and improves the profitability for the operators”.
