Why is the program slow at placing bets?

Postby GaryRussell » Fri Dec 02, 2005 7:25 pm

It isn't in my opinion. You may be unfortunate enough to have a software conflict which it is unlikely that I will be able to assist with. Most users don't experience problems with speed (feel free to contradict me on this, I want to know!). I will be adding a feature which will record the response times which you can compare with the regular interface by using a program such as IEWatch which can be found at http://www.iewatch.com. I used this tool to help develop this program.

Also don't forget that the program is contacting the same Betfair servers as the regular interface so if the site is experiencing difficulties, so will this program. Check the Betfair forums and see if people are complaining!

Sports betting software from Gruss Software

The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
