Tabcorp has announced the release of its new TAB mobile wagering solution. It is the first update of the app in more than two years and it is also the first TAB product that uses the Google-made open-source Flutter UI toolkit.
Australia’s largest multichannel betting provider claims the TAB betting app is faster, easier to use, and gives punters new products and features.
Quicker and Easier to Use
The betting operator said that placing a bet via the TAB app was now 9 seconds faster. TAB betting slips will also have Sky Racing and Sports Vision, meaning bettors will get all the action, while Venue Mode was also upgraded and punters can benefit from more offers.
TAB also improved the home page of the app and TAB’s new technology platform means approval processes will be shortened from 4 weeks to 48 hours. TAB also announced that new products such as a same race multi feature and a social wagering option will be rolled out in time for the busy Christmas period.
Adam Rytenskild, Tabcorp CEO, said the company has kept its promise to punters that it will deliver the TAB app before the major Spring Carnival Races such as the Melbourne Cup and TAB Everest, as well as the NRL and AFL Grand Finals.
Mr. Rytenskild was happy that the company developed the new app while listening to what their customers wanted and that placing bets was now easier and quicker.
The Flutter UI Toolkit Enables Fortnightly Updates
In its first update of the app in more than two years, Tabcorp used the Google-made open-source Flutter UI toolkit. According to the company’s chief executive, the Flutter technology enabled them to update their app once every two weeks if they wanted to do that, meaning Australian bettors will get the best digital experience.
Jenni Barnett, Tabcorp’s Chief Customer Officer, said that the company was already working on upgrading the new app and that there was “no set and forget” for them.
She added that TAB would unveil two new products before Christmas and that TAB’s product team will constantly update the app in 2023 as well.
Tabcorp’s chief of information Alan Sharvin spoke in glowing terms about the Flutter platform and said it enabled them to increase the speed at which they developed their products by 160%.
Mr. Sharvin said they no longer had multiple code bases all running at the same time, as they now were using only one, thus ensuring faster speed to market.
