Arcadem is looking to gain additional control of the game development process, as well as a quicker speed to market, after teaming-up with Comtrade Gaming.
This will see the independent gaming software supplier provide its remote gaming server, titled gCore technology, which Arcadem will gain and that will be hosted in the cloud.
“Our RGS is being used by some of the largest game providers and we are delighted to welcome Arcadem as one of our newest partners,” stated Steven Valentine, Comtrade Gaming’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“We look forward to supporting Arcadem on their journey and help them focus on the creation of even more superb games.
“Our cloud hosted managed solution gives smaller game vendors access to their own independent solution whilst not having to worry about the underlying technology they build their games on.”
Comtrade Gaming RGS is a solution for vendors and operators that enables implementation and distribution of online, mobile, and server-based gaming content. It is licensed in the UK, Gibraltar, Malta, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, among others.
Phillip Douglas, Arcadem’s Chief Product Officer, commented: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Comtrade Gaming. We firmly believe that the gCore technology will allow us to have more control over our game development process and reduce our time to market.
“Ultimately, as we begin to scale our business across the globe, this will aid us in rapidly reaching our targets”.
Last week, Valentine told CasinoBeats about what Comtrade Gaming is doing to meet the requirements of challenger brands and their growth plans.
On how the technical challenges faced by challenger brands differ from those encountered by major operators, as well as how platform providers can help them tackle such issues, he said: “The biggest challenge small or mid-size operators face is having a very finite amount of technical resource and choosing where to focus that.
“One example is technical compliance. It can take a team of a significant size just to ensure you are compliant with regulations and responding to the ever-changing rules. This sort of work isn’t growing the business, it’s just treading water, but it has to be done.”
