Whether you want to tackle massive volumes of training data, going back a decade and covering multiple leagues, or you want to receive real-time updates during a match – the unrivalled power of our database makes it easy.

Saving your scouts time and adding value – with a data-driven process

We can help your scouts find the best players for your team by giving them fully data-driven processes and advanced analytics capabilities – including our feature, Skyline, that uses the power of algorithms to determine the optimal players within a dataset and given the preferences you define.

Using smart algorithms in this way helps to significantly reduce the time spent searching, because the process can be streamlined and optimised, giving your scouts a well-defined shortlist of players and a better chance at finding the right fit.

Really get to know your team’s fans – and give them the best possible experience

Fan engagement is the life blood of sport. Our solution helps optimise ticket sales through analytics while bringing data-driven strategies to merchandising, food and beverage revenue streams – and the wider engagement with fans in the stadium and on social media.

With all this data you can connect the dots across different customer experiences and get a more complete picture of behavioural patterns – and tailor your sales and marketing to match your fans’ preferences.

Connect with your ‘fanalysts’ – and get crucial insights from your most loyal supporters

Bring more data to your fans and help them become your fanalysts – giving you the option to set up hackathons and events, where you can use their passion and skills to engage with your data. Many teams now use the wider analytics community to tackle some of their toughest data challenges.

And with our analytics database you can setup a secure environment for providing and maintaining control of the data. It also allows your potential data expert recruits to use it when tackling analytics problems – with their technical and analytical expertise.
