RMSA was formed to help resorts and casinos to: a) understand the opportunities for enhancing operational efficiencies and improving customer service using enterprise-class mobile technology, and b) select the most appropriate mobile apps and infrastructure to bring them to life at their properties.

RMSA will offer best practices white papers, educational events, and other reference information to help resorts and casinos keep abreast of evolving mobile technologies, as well as provide guidance and appropriate assessment to successfully deploy them for maximum competitive advantage.

RMSA's initial focus includes helping resorts understand, select, configure and deploy Wi-Fi systems for best performance on a given budget with special emphasis on reliable coverage, encryption, extensibility and performance during emergencies, including power outages. 

Additionally, RMSA will help the industry to define operational standards including appropriate jurisdiction certification minimal requirements, enterprise system connectivity best practices, mobile device app and user management guidelines, and mobile app interoperability / compatibility recommendations.
