A Costa Rican sportsbook software firm that provides discrete data processing services for bookmakers based around the world; PayPerHead, has today announced that it has slashed its rates to zero on all of its products to help small businesses and start-up companies weather the storm of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
PayPerHead was established in 1997, is the industry’s leading per head online bookie software, providing user-friendly tools and unmatched customer service to independent bookmakers around the world.
In the absence of global sporting events, both retail and online bookmakers have felt the impact of the worldwide spread of Coronavirus, so the San Jose software provider has stated that ‘all of their services, except those that entail outside software costs, will be offered to bookie agents free of charge until the first major sporting event begins again, or by September 1, 2020, whichever comes first’.
Product manager at PayPerHead Nate Johnson commented on the announcement:
“If ever there was a good time to seek out an industry that can survive an economic downturn, now is it”
Johnson elaborated on why the sports betting industry can bounce back:
“We know that times are tough, but we’ve been down this road before. When businesses were going bankrupt during the housing crisis of 2008, we stayed in the game. We’ll do it again and we’ll help others to do it too.”
Sportsbook’s around the world are currently seeing one of the lowest activity levels in their firm’s history. Many companies are implementing mitigation strategies to offset losses with marketing for the few sporting events that are still taking place and virtual sports that are available around the clock.
PayPerHead deals with difficult and challenging circumstances on a regular basis and is used to offering advice and guidance to gaming and betting firms. The firm offers words of advice:
‘Being a successful bookie is a culmination of several different skills: you need to master content, sales, psychology, customer service, and good old-fashioned marketing if you want to grow your sports betting business. With PayPerHead as your sportsbook and bookie solution, you’ll be able to grow your business with the sharpest lines in the industry, live betting, online and live dealer casino options. An established bookie knows what to keep in reserve.’
