“Pace Insights combines a high level of professional expertise with excellent customer service skills. Any new IT project requires ongoing support in the early stages, and Samir was available at short notice, often well outside of office hours, to help move the project forwards. He seemed to take great pride and enthusiasm in ensuring the project worked as we needed it too and was willing to keep working until this was achieved.”
Tom Pattichis High Performance Coach
What if you could improve…
What you can learn.
Because you are employed for your expertise, not to copy & paste.
How you present it.
Because numbers, charts and reports should look good too.
The pace it gets done.
Because the data can be 100x more valuable, if it’s available quickly.
I'm very happy indeed with progress.
Barry Fudge, Head of Sport Science & Endurance
Some of the ways we can enhance your Sports teams data expertise:
In the first months we will work with you researching your sports performance models. We’re lucky to have worked with lots of sports. We’ve also successfully delivered value at all-levels, from Performance Director to intern. We’re here to help your whole team.
We don't have much data?
That’s fine. We’ve worked with teams large and small and tailor our offering to match your stage. You’re at an exciting stage as who knows what learning and insights you might be able to uncover.
Why Data management?
Don’t believe in vendor lock in or being held ransom or made to wait for a data management vendor to implement a change at extra cost to you. We take the data as you have it. We’ll give you templates to help you start being more organised. Maximum flexibility with minimum disruption to existing work practise.
How secure is our data?
As custodians of your data we take that responsibility very seriously. Our approaches are constantly under-review to ensure your data is secure. We are currently working towards compliance with the Government’s Cyber Essentials Standard. Furthermore, should you have specific data policies, we’ll be happy to follow these.
