Tony Grillo

FOUNDER

May 11th 1962 - January 18th 2010 - May God Bless His Soul

The mind behind the creation of Casino Schedule Ease.
Although confined to a wheelchair, Tony was never deterred from being the best that he could be. He overcame great odds, graduating from Holy Spirit High School with a perfect math SAT score, then on a full academic scholarship Tony graduated from Stockton State College in 1985 with a degree in computer science.

Tony held a position at Atlantic Electric after college, which he left in 1993 to found GEC Computer Systems and shortly thereafter began work on Casino Schedule Ease. Tony was taken from us in January of 2010, but his legacy lives on.

Dedication to Tony

You may or may not be aware of the very sad news regarding my brother Tony; he passed away unexpectedly on January 18th, 2010. I cannot express in words how profound of an effect this has had on our family and me.

Tony conquered every obstacle life threw at him, without ever complaining. In fact, whenever someone would broach the subject of obstacles, Tony would immediately let them know that he had none!.. He never wanted to be reliant on anyone and was an entrepreneur on so many levels. Tony was the best brother anyone could ask for. He never complained and he was always willing to give of himself, whenever he could. Tony was hard working and extremely proficient in computer programming, as I’m sure many of you are aware (aka Genius as his friends knew him). Tony moved back home to New Jersey on December 17th 2009, it was great to have him home again as we celebrated Christmas for the first time as an entire family since he left for Vegas back in 2001. We are all very grateful that he returned home. It was wonderful.

Tony's passing has been emotionally painful for all of us-family and friends. We will never forget him.

I invite you to read the article the Press Of Atlantic City wrote about Tony in 2001, this was right before he left New Jersey for Vegas, it explains much of his life and how he overcame every imaginable hurdle. The Grillo family members are better people because of Tony and it was the love of our parents and their tenacity that keep us strong.

Please keep Tony in your prayers.
Sincerely,
Kelly Grillo

Executive VP of Operations

Paul Spinosa is a Casino Scheduling Expert with over 20 years of experience in scheduling at one of Atlantic City's longest running casinos. That casino was one of the early adopters of Schedule Ease (in the mid-90's) which allowed Paul to work directly with Tony to help drive the direction of the product line. Paul is not only the Subject Matter Expert for Schedule Ease, but also the lead trainer.

If you should happen to be trained by Paul, you will quickly learn that he will not only show you how to implement and use the software, but he will also help you change your scheduling routines and processes to be more efficient using the full spectrum of features available in Schedule Ease. Paul will also not only show you how to create your scheduling roadmaps, but he will build them with you. By the time you are done working with Paul, you will be able to sit back, enjoy, and watch your casino's scheduling practically run itself.

We are lucky to have Paul on board, he brings experience to our team that is invaluable.
