Flow of the week – Book a Bet automation


Are you looking for a way to supercharge and innovate across all your global Sportsbook markets, regardless of the internet connectivity? Flows no-code automation platform is the perfect solution!

This week, we’re focusing on Flows in areas with bad internet connections, such as parts of Africa and Latin America. Here, betting on sports is still incredibly popular, but because they do not have internet, they normally place bets anonymously through betting shops or using a simple “book a bet” feature before handing over the code to the shop to place their bet for them.

With Flows, this process can be streamlined and made easier. For example, Flows makes it easy to collect basic information like a customer’s phone number, and then send an SMS once their bet slip is settled, letting them know if they’ve won or lost, and reminding them to go collect their winnings in the shop with the code they receive in the SMS. Making it less risky that they will lose their win if they lose their betslip receipt!

Flows’ no-code automation platform allows your business to quickly and easily create and deploy automated processes without having to write a single line of code. This is a great way to supercharge and innovate across all your global sportsbook markets, whether they have a good internet connections or not.

So what are you waiting for? Get started with Flows today and revolutionise the way you do business.

How do you Flow it? 

Start your Flow on Book a Bet trigger

When a customer uses the “Book a bet” feature – either by using their limited internet on their phone or inside a betting shop – the flow would trigger and collect the information provided. Flows can then generate a random booking-code that the customer can hand over to the cashier to place the bet and pay.

This simple flow continues with a “run later” stage where we set a timer based on when the bet will be settled. Flows then collects the betslip again to get the results. Based on the results, Flows can then automate an SMS send through your provider of choice – letting the customer know of the outcome and to come and collect any winnings at the shop using the code provided.

Flows no-code automation platform is a great way for businesses to stay competitive and provide an innovative experience to customers, even in areas with poor internet connection, where it’s difficult for businesses to take full advantage of modern technology. Use Flows to customise the customer experience across all your markets and territories and supercharge your business today!
