Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented: 'Regulatory compliance is at the very centre of everything we do and as such we must continually train our people and ensure that their knowledge is as up-to-date as possible. The Compliance Academy, designed by SMP eGaming, meets that requirement and we are delighted to have partnered with them.'
Kim Broad, Head of Compliance at Microgaming, added: 'We conducted an appraisal of the online training market for our sector and The Compliance Academy stood head and shoulders above the rest from a content, user experience and overall functionality perspective. Being able to manage many hundreds of users from one platform, allocate courses and analyse and report on results across our various teams makes the delivery of our compliance training far more engaging, efficient and cost effective.'
The SMP Compliance Academy, which is CPD accredited, has been developed by SMP eGaming, the highly regarded specialist gaming consultancy based in the Isle of Man
Ted Pepper, Director of SMP eGaming said: 'We are delighted that Microgaming has chosen the Compliance Academy for regulatory and compliance training. The commitment to the training and development of their people is well known and admired within the gaming sector, and to be given the opportunity to become a core component of that is a strong endorsement of the platform and the quality of the service we have developed.'
The Compliance Academy provides Microgaming with personalised training platform from where it can coordinate and manage the delivery of SMP eGaming's proprietary regulatory and compliance training content across its campus and commercial teams.
Mr Pepper added: 'We launched the Compliance Academy last year to meet the very tangible pressures that licence holders are facing from a compliance and regulatory perspective and there is a real drive to raise training and development standards. It has been very well received by the sector and the indications are that many operators will follow Microgaming's lead.'
