The team at Blueprint Operations is gearing up for the reopening of AGCs, Bingo Clubs and the indoor areas of pubs with a commitment to support its customer-base coupled with a healthy dose of optimism for the future.
Planning, preparation and positivity are the cornerstones of Blueprint’s commitment to operators as they work to get their businesses ready ahead of the reopening of AGC’s, Bingo Clubs and the indoor areas of pubs on May 17.
David Purvis, Managing Director of the Gauselmann owned brand, said the exclusive focus has been to provide customers with the level of support they need in order to hit the ground running and earning machine income as soon as regulations permit. He explained: “Our priority has been to ensure the availability of product and compelling game content. This has entailed securing the supply of machines imported from Gauselmann’s manufacturing centre in Lubbecke and bringing forward our 2021 allocation of cabinets so that customers wanting to provide their returning players with new and exciting product can do so from day 1 of reopening.
“We know that some operators will be opening new venues and the same immediate access to great quality product that will make an outstanding first impression applies. In terms of content all the development team have remained in post throughout the pandemic and we’ve ensured that the lockdown period has been used creatively and productively developing the pipeline of games for 2022.”
Purvis believes that all of the indicators point towards a swift return to profitable trading for consumer-facing gaming businesses. He said: “According to PwC, consumer confidence is at a record high due in no small part to the success of the immunisation programme, which suggests that we can anticipate a rapid bounce back. Q4 is traditionally a solid period for high street AGCs and I believe that players will return to venues including those who may have migrated online over the last 12-months.
“Overall, there’s every reason to be positive about the future and I am determined that Blueprint will make an important contribution to the recovery plan of all of our customers across the AGC, Bingo and Pub sectors.”
