Entertainment group Tabcorp will replace its
legacy systems and create common wagering operating platforms for
NSW and Victorian TABs following moves to integrate the two
A NSW parliament bill introduced today will allow the
integration of the NSW and Victorian TABs, which previously ran
independently. Tabcorp has been trying to integrate the two
operations since it acquired TAB Limited in NSW in 2004.
The project will see NSW TAB's betting engine
computers in the suburbs of Ultimo and Granville replaced and the common wagering platforms created for TABs in the two states.
"This will result in the development of development of state-of-the-art wagering software systems," Tabcorp said.
In addition, Tabcorp's call centre operations will be integrated in Granville, NSW, in a move expected to create 300 additional jobs.
"Our customers will enjoy new betting products and benefit
from an enhanced wagering system," said tabcorp managing director
and chief executive officer Matthew Slatter.
"The integration will also enable the NSW and Victorian racing
industries to gain from cost synergy benefits."
