Smart Lotto is making good on last year’s commitment to create 20 positions over the course of three years. Having created and filled six positions during 2015, the Belmullet-based company has now announced it will create a further ten positions in 2016, thanks to continued support of Údarás na Gaeltachta.
Following the launch of Smart Lotto in early 2015, the company has successfully promoted its state-of-the-art Online Lotto Software to over 2,500 clubs and charities across the county. It is now working with some of the most high-profile clubs and county boards in the country, the most notable being the Mayo GAA players’ fund.
Responding to customers’ needs has been key to Smart Lotto’s success. “Like with any new product or service, we had to continue to develop our service to meet the precise needs of our customers,” explained managing director Noel Rowland.
“Over the course of last year, through engagement with clubs and charities up and down the county, we listened to the what clubs and charities were asking for and responded by tailoring a complete suite of marketing and promotional support packages to our software, which has proven to be very successful to date.”
Commenting on the company’s confirmation of ten more jobs in Belmullet, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring said he was ‘delighted’.
“People talk about success and its meaning, and Smart Lotto has proven to be a tremendous success,” he said. “I would like to compliment everyone involved on all their hard work.”
Cllr Gerry Coyle also congratulated Smart Lotto for bringing enterprise and employment to the area, and he thanked Uduara na Ghaeltachta, and the Government for its support and belief in the project.
Údarás Na Gaeltachta CEO Steve Ó Cúláin said it is wonderful to see local people being employed in ‘this great venture’, adding that he is proud that his organisation could help to encourage such growth.
