Most high-performance sports invest in data, even data science.
The real challenge is how to make that data useful.
What would it mean to your team to have better answers to all your performance questions?
“Samir at 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
Because you are employed for your expertise, not to copy & paste.
Because numbers, charts and reports should look good too.
Because the data can be 100x more valuable, if it’s available quickly.

We know about deadlines and the importance of having information in a timely and clear fashion.
We appreciate the implications of the decisions you’re making and the constant time pressure your team faces.
We’ve successfully delivered projects where many others have failed.
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.
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.

We’ll give you templates to help you start being more organised. Maximum flexibility with minimum disruption to existing work practise.
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.
