Monitoring Systems Licensing Platform
Zonke Monitoring Systems was a subsidiary of the Bidvest Group, a diversified group listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. ZMS was the agent of the National Gambling Board Of South Africa, contracted to develop, operate and manage the Central Electronic Monitoring System (CEMS) to manage and monitor the entire Limited Pay-out Machine (LPM) industry in South Africa.
nVisionIT created the end-to-end licencing management platform for Zonke. This platform covers the entire process from application of licences to the issuing of the physical and electronic certificates. This is accomplished across multiple categories of applicants from individuals, to route operators, to locations to manufacturers. Covering all aspects of the tightly controlled licencing industry.
The solution comprises an online portal that can be accessed by external users including the various Provincial Licensing Authorities users, Route Operator users, as well as Site Operators and National, Gaming and Key Employees for viewing and capturing Gaming License Applications and Renewals that are used and required by the gaming industry.
The platform consists of a core Dynamics CRM implementation used to manage the data set of licence holders at all levels and the workflow processes. On top of this was a large custom Angular JS based .Net MVC solution that is used by all external parties to execute input and output tasks because of the licencing processes.
