In other business news, igaming consultant, IHRE – who identifies possibilities for connecting various companies – has announced the launch of its new website: ihreconsulting.com.
According to the announcement, the site has been created to offer an overview of the firm’s services and expertise. There’s also a design that has been chosen to cater to gaming operators and affiliates as well as companies who want assistance to get a foot through the iGaming door.
Its founder, Edward Ihre said: “Ihre Consulting has now been established for over one and a half years and we have successfully completed a large number of deals and introductions. It has become apparent during this period that there has been a lack of transparency/presentation of not only what we bring to the value chain, but also what various affiliate programs offer, which brands they support and how those differ from one another in terms of strategy, target markets, software and USPs.
“All of that should and will have a major impact on which operators and affiliates should work together. We hope to change that, making the industry more efficient and profitable doing so.”
Additionally, Ihre Consulting also launched a company blog alognside its new site at ihreconsulting.wordpress.com. This is set to provide igaming news and affiliate promotions from some of the 50 operators they currently work with. So if you want to keep on top of what’s going on in the IHRE hood, then you know what to do!
