Safeguard Your Club

29 June 2023

As new requirements from the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) come into effect, it is time to consider how you can best safeguard your gaming business and patrons. Plus, with the discussion around harm minimisation gaining momentum, it is more crucial than ever to understand the diverse strategies and options that are available to ensure your business complies with current industry and government regulations.

By implementing Next Payments (Next) products into your gaming venue, you can have peace of mind knowing that all compliance requirements are diligently met. Aligned with cutting-edge technological advancements, Next products are designed to protect both your patrons and venue, offering a sophisticated range of harm minimisation features and regular software upgrades. These features can include facial recognition technology and alerts that ensure your venue remains secure and compliant, whilst simultaneously reducing the potential harm from poker machines.  

Beyond the current harm minimisation tools on Next ATMs like receipt messaging, onscreen advertisements that promote responsible gaming, transaction limits, and the inability to use credit cards, Next has partnered with COMS/QEC to empower your venue through greater visibility. Next employs its Concilio software, an advanced reporting tool, to provide businesses with full insights into transactional data across their ATMs. Through this powerful integration, your venue staff and management are able to view transactional data across your entire range of ATMs, while increasing levels of cash security, visibility, and reporting while maintaining the regulations that protect your patrons.

Lessen the burden on your staff with these innovative and safety-enhancing technologies that mean problem gambling is easily detected and monitored. The time has come to proactively transform into a venue dedicated to reducing pokies harm. Next and COMS can offer a simple and effective solution that allows you to stay ahead of your competitors by keeping your venue and patrons safe.
