When the New Jersey Lottery engaged the Northstar New Jersey Lottery Group in 2013 to help it manage growth, the IGT business unit quickly got to work. The staff began to develop new processes to support the New Jersey Lottery’s Draw, Instant, and Multi-State Games, as well as more than 7,000 retail outlets. This new team brought valuable expertise, and preferred work processes to Northstar which presented immediate challenges. Northstar deployed Workfront to standardize marketing project management across its teams. Rapid adoption of the centralized, cloud-based Workfront solution has resulted in improving communications and reducing rework while delivering a 360-degree view of all work projects.
