SystemSource Makes Bet with CMS

SystemSource Inc. (Jackson, Miss.), and Professional Software Services (Las Vegas, Nev.) have announced a partnership and joint venture to market and support Professional Software Services' Casino Management System (CMS).

SystemSource already delivers frame relay networks, high system availability implementation, data warehousing and document imaging to the gaming industry.

Professional Software Services' CMS interfaces with player tracking, hotel and point of sale systems to provide casinos with a customer database that includes credit and marketing information. "This arrangement [with Professional Software Services] is central to our strategy in offering the gaming industry high quality applications, but more importantly, high quality service after installation," says Steve Ezell, VP of sales and marketing for SystemSource.

System Source, in addition to its work with the casino industry, develops AS/400 and RS/6000 client/server solutions for business intelligence, document imaging, Internet/intranet-based applications and complex network strategies.

Professional Software Services' CMS package dates back to System/38 and has been native on the AS/400 since the platform's inception in 1988.
