Conquer Technology creates a gambling division in order to reduce operator risk and innovate on a small scale

Jamie Hart, a former UK Tote Product Director and veteran of the UK gambling industry, has been appointed Head of Gambling at UK Technology consultancy Conquer Technology. He is now seeking to simplify integration efforts for operators.

Hart has also worked as executive director for Tabcorp, and was director of Innovation at William Hill. He said that the decision to make the change came from a desire to assist operators in solving their most pressing technology and integration issues in an innovative and nimble way. This is in contrast with the often clunky and inefficient processes in place.

He stated that the vast majority of his technical decisions as an operator are made due to regulatory changes. “This leaves little room for solving other technical problems.”

Hart said that “Integration will be the number one goal for us.”

Conquer Technology is a development studio that offers a wide range of services and specializes in turning client issues into innovative solutions.

Hart says he first met Conquer Technology’s chief commercial officer David Carter during his tenure at William Hill between 2008 and 2016, when the company took part in an innovation contest.

Conquer Technology is focused on technical innovations at a small scale. Hart stated that the company would assume the risk associated with small-scale innovations, making it easier to operators implement new or difficult technologies.

Hart stated that Conquer Technology will be looking to innovate with firms in various fields, including regulations, Know Your Client and new betting types and products.

Operators find it hard to have the time to test and experiment with new ideas. Hart stated that it might be faster and more cost-effective to have us do these things than to try them in house.

There are a lot of people working on projects at operators now compared to 20 years ago. He said he hoped to provide an unique outsourcing model.

The UK Tote had a limit

Hart, who announced his departure in the wake of this decision, said that the Tote was a project he loved but had ambitions to tackle other technical problems.

He concluded, “There is a lot I would like to change and do [in the gambling industry] but it was hard to innovate with Tote’s products.”
