What is OnePlace?
OnePlace is the next generation of lottery sales force automation and is brought to you by the same team that created OrderPad for Lotteries which over the last decade has become the industry standard.
OnePlace is subscription-based and does not require a large upfront investment. iPads are also much less expensive than Tablet PCs. Now, lottery sales force automation is within reach for all lotteries.
iPad and Web
Great software, like OnePlace, deserves to be run on the world’s most advanced mobile computing platform. OnePlace offers a great native iPad app for those in the field and a great web experience for those in the office.
“Iowa Lottery is proud to be the leading jurisdiction to adopt OnePlace. Our sales reps do a great job and deserve the best tools available.”
- Terry Rich, CEO, Iowa Lottery
Make Each Visit Count
Let’s face it, sales visits are expensive. Each visit to a retailer is a big investment, so it’s important to make each one count. OnePlace helps shift reps from reactive to proactive mode. We call it “walking in with a mission.” OnePlace presents information in an actionable way, allowing reps to review it quickly and easily, seconds before they walk into a retailer’s location.
Retailers know their business best. They know which products sell well and which ones don’t. Unfortunately, they are often wrong. Let’s face it, they’ve got a lot on their plates and lottery isn’t always at the forefront of their minds. That’s why it’s important for lottery reps to be armed with data so they can deal with real facts rather than inklings and assumptions. OnePlace provides detailed information about games, inventory, sales, and retailer history, allowing reps to make decisions that result in higher revenue, more satisfied retailers, and happier players.

OnePlace provides instant access to information about available instant games,
OnePlace displays online and instant sales history in a view that is easy to understand and that is incredibly fast for reps and managers to see if a retailer’s sales are trending in the right direction. Sales are broken down by game for online games and by price-point for instant games. Current and previous week’s sales can be quickly compared to 13 and 26 week averages. Quarter to date sales comparisons let reps spot opportunities for sales growth and identify problem areas.
The Service History screen is designed to give sales reps the ability to quickly recap specific retailer visits, indicating the work performed during the visit and what issues need further attention. Once completed, the Service History is available to be viewed by anyone in the organization with authority to view that retailer.
OnePlace helps sales reps make sure that the right tickets are at the right retailers at the right time by providing them with very detailed information and alerts. For example, at a glance, they can see: The number of packs in each status at a retailer location summarized by in transit, in the safe, and on display (active and settled); The estimated consumer sales of each game at a retailer’s location by number of packs, number of tickets, or by dollars sold; A detailed pack by pack listing of every game at a retailer’s location.
The iPad is a great tool for field staff, but some users, particularly managers and headquarters staff, spend a good portion of their time at their desks and use desktop or notebook PCs. OnePlace is for them too! The OnePlace web app allows them to access all of the same great information and functionality right from their web browser and supports the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox.
