Scientific Games Corporation announced that it has successfully completed the acquisition of longtime business partner Lapis Software Associates, LLC, an international supplier of lottery sales force and retail performance applications. Additionally, Lapis supplies technology consulting services focused on high-performance, mission-critical distributed applications.

“Scientific Games is the industry leader in maximizing retail performance for our customers,” said Pat McHugh, Scientific Games’ senior vice president, global lottery systems. “The acquisition of Lapis Software Associates expands our suite of value-added retail products, accelerates the development of new innovations, and positions our offerings to be the most agile and comprehensive tool set for lotteries and retailers to improve performance.”

Scientific Games has employed all existing Lapis staff, who will continue to fully support Lapis customers. McHugh said that in the long term, Lapis customers will benefit from Scientific Games’ market analytics, strong research and development pipeline, and other resources. Innovation from Lapis’ Rhode Island location will augment Scientific Games’ product development from its global labs and technology operation centers.
