SBTech has signed a partnership agreement with the SMP Compliance Academy, with the aim of expanding and enhancing ‘companywide compliance knowledge and training across its growing international network of offices’.
The agreement will give employees of the sports betting technology supplier access to an interactive platform, allowing for the distribution, management and reporting of compliance and personalised regulatory training content.
The online platform promotes compliance knowledge and learning and comes complete with a comprehensive range of training documents which can be accessed and reviewed at any stage.
The SMP Compliance Academy, which is CPD accredited, has been developed by SMP eGaming, a specialist gaming consultancy based in the Isle of Man, the same location as the SBTech head office.
SBTech announced the arrival of Jeremie Kanter, Chief Compliance Officer, in November last year. Kanter is responsible for continuing to grow and maintain the high standards of compliance across SBTech’s global business including the wide range of new and existing markets in which it supplies its leading products and services.
Kanter said: “We pride ourselves on achieving the highest regulatory standards possible across all areas of the business with compliance central to our operations.
“Ongoing knowledge, awareness and learning is vitally important within compliance as it is such a fast-moving and changeable area across the 20 regulated markets in which we operate.
“Regulatory training is paramount to all areas of the business, and we want to ensure that all our employees understand the importance of compliance in order to create a successful internal culture.
“Compliance is an enabler to sustainability and achieving even more success, and the partnership with SMP will help us to grow and expand our reach and reinforce this across the company.”
Ted Pepper, Director of SMP eGaming, added: “SBTech is dedicated to reaching the highest compliance standards and its commitment to training and developing its staff within the gaming sector is to be commended. As such, we are proud that they have chosen the SMP Compliance Academy to become a core component of promoting their ongoing culture of compliance and raising regulatory standards.”
