Monday July 2, 2012 : LVS LAUNCHES NEW VERSION OF WEBSITE AND CMS SYSTEM
Open source web application framework upgraded
La Francaise Des Jeux-owned online betting software provider LVS has released a new version of its "Apollo" website and content management system allowing its licencees more direct control over content and the ability to present a visually less generic and more bespoke offering.
The newly upgraded front-end framework allows customer website's to be built from a growing library of individual components designed to be interchangeable within the framework which can be supported by the same content management system (CMS).
Each component is customer “brandable”, with new components easily swapped in and out using a drag and drop function allowing simpler content control by non-technical staff.
Additionally, the content management system allows the operator more control over tabs and footer links and generic content such as terms and conditions. It also includes the following features:
– Ability to upload images, flash content or HTML into advertising and other user defined components
– Full access control with each operator have defined privilege levels to control the content which they can control
– Publish start and expiry dates. Components can automatically swap in and out without operator interaction
– Full multi-website and multi-language support.
Ron Regan, sales & marketing director for LVS says, “Each website can now have unique functionality and appears to end players as though fully bespoke to the operator, but at the same time many areas can still be built from standard components to save time and cost.
“Everything is written using Ruby on Rails. These components have no dependency at all on flash and therefore run perfectly on iPad, iPhone etc.“
Ruby on Rails (RoR) is an open source web application framework used by web developers to boost the speed and ease with which database-driven web sites can be produced.
