Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Boylesports has taken its first steps in the transition from print-to-digital with the launch of its first digitally-led betting shop in Louth, Ireland. The shop in Drogheda becomes Boylesports first to roll out the new interactive Racing Post Digital Betting Shop Display (BSD). The refit saw the shop expand floor space and install numerous new screens and SSBTs. While, impressively, the store now includes 10 interactive screens showcasing Racing Post horseracing and greyhound data.

The Racing Post BSD has been a mainstay for bookmakers since its launch more than 20 years ago and the new screens showcase the same great content in an interactive format. With the new touchscreens, Boylesports customers are able to compare the detailed form for horses side by side.

Boylesports customers can also avail of Racing Post coverage from South Africa, UAE and Hong Kong, while the screens also showcase full virtual racing cards. For more casual racing customers, the new interactive touchscreens display key Racing Post content, including Verdicts and Spotlights so customers can make informed betting decisions.

At the launch of the digital display, Boylesports, Head of Retail Marketing, Michael Simpkin discussed what a step forward the digital-first shop was for the business.

He said “We’re absolutely delighted with how the shop looks and we’re sure our customers will be just as thrilled when they step in store. This was our very first shop in the Republic of Ireland so it’s rather apt and a proud moment that it is now our very first digital shop in Ireland.  We’ve transformed the shop into a digital-led store with a huge advancement in technology throughout. This includes the installation of 10 new 50’’ screens showcasing Racing Post content from around the world”.

Simpkin went on to discuss how important  it was that Racing Post was included in the tech transition.“The Racing Post Betting Shop Display has been on every Boylesports wall across Ireland for as long as our shops have been open. It’s a key cog in the horseracing betting decision. We know how vital it is for our customers to see Racing Post content available in our shops and we’re delighted with how it turned out. Their rich content is just as good on the new screens as it is in the paper and of course, even clearer in large-screen format.  I’m really looking forward to introducing customers to it over the coming weeks.”

Alan Pepperell, Retail Director of Racing Post, expressed his excitement at the continued roll-out of the Racing Post Digital Betting Shop Display.

“The past few years have seen a shift in focus for the overall retail landscape as more and more stores move to a more tech-led approach. We know the newspaper has wallpapered betting shops across the UK and Ireland for over 20 years but we’re excited about our new interactive screens. Michael and the team at Boylesports have been great and the new store is state of the art, we’re excited for Boylesports customers to avail of Racing Post content in the best way possible.’’

On the advancing tech behind the Racing Post display, he added:  “The tech in the displays is second to none and we’re committed to going above and beyond to give customers more content than ever before. Being able to give full form, and verdicts on all UK and Irish racing as well as international racing, greyhound and virtuals in-store, at the touch of a button means punters are armed with the best information to help make their selection.”

“For us, the key focus is on entertainment for the gaming community and offering an original and engaging format that breaks the mould of the traditional racing esports leagues currently available. We’re incredibly excited to share further details regarding who and what is to come as we prepare to launch in 2022.”
