2020: Year in Review
Without a doubt, 2020 has been a year of significant challenges and changes. However, it was a year that we learned a lot from. We are proud to continue to serve casinos and help them to adapt to new processes seamlessly through technological innovations.
In 2020, Casino Essentials developed new products, released essential training and served the gaming industry through virtual events. Here’s a look back at the year’s most notable moments.
2020 Top Product Innovations
Casino Essentials can now be your one trusted partner with FOUR Solutions! Your organization can move forward with innovative technology for training, mandatory compliance checks, safety preparedness resources, and workforce scheduling. In addition to Casino Essentials’ Learning Management System, the gaming industry now has the resources to get back to business with a suite of solutions built to help casinos move forward with sanitation checklists (Vector Check It), exposure tracking (Vector EHS Management), and workforce scheduling (Vector Scheduling).
Additionally, CELEXA is now available on Mobile devices! We’ve made enhancements to the mobile experience of our learning management system, CELEXA™. It is ready for your team’s training needs on-the-go. You can now supplement any classroom training and the need for shared computers by training over courses on any mobile device – tablets or smartphones. This latest enhancement provides added convenience and options for distanced learning, eliminating the need for all employees to be in the same room to complete required training. Enhanced mobile accessibility allows employees to train on their own time anywhere with an internet connection.

Coronavirus Safety Training Series
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Vector Solutions acted quickly to release complimentary training content and popular EMS training courses were made available. Topics for public safety employees included: Respiratory Protection; Response for COVID-19 (PPE, Decon, and Transport); and Protecting Yourself from Influenza.
Additionally, a COVID-19 training series was developed and made available at no cost. As part of the Vector Cares program, agencies could access these high-quality training videos to help promote awareness and better protect their organizations and communities.
It doesn’t go unnoticed that the gaming industry values connection and interaction. So do we! It was disappointing to have to cancel our annual in-person events, but we were successful with pivoting from in-person events to virtual events. We hosted Virtual HR Summit and Virtual AML Event with over 500 virtual attendees combined. If you missed these events, we summarized the key takeaways in previous blog posts: In Case You Missed It: Virtual HR Summit Recap & Key Takeaways from the Virtual AML Event.
