You have legal, financial and operational pressures on you to sort the data out. In fact you are swamped and it is increasingly getting out of control.
Data management platforms are meant to address this but they fail.
They are expensive, inflexible, overly-complicated – even hated.
To generate anything “meaningful”, by way of numbers or analysis or reports, takes an age.
Data presentation can be woeful.
Reports hard to follow.
Data integration with others in the team, basically impossible.
You are frustrated.
You’ve engaged all the usual channels for help but it hasn’t really worked out.
You are not prepared to give up and anyway this nagging pain isn’t going away.
The thing is, you are not sure where to go for help from anyone who really understands how high-performance Sport work.
How much better would it feel to have all your Athlete Reports effortlessly produced, stunning to look at and unquestionable actionable?
What if you had tools that people found a pleasure to use, fitted exactly to their needs today and yet were flexible to adapt to their needs tomorrow?
What kind of advantage would it give you, to really really easily be able to:
What if reporting out to funding bodies, the board and other senior stakeholders was as easy as sending an email, no matter what they asked?
How would it feel to have your team fully empowered, guided and encouraged to successfully innovate on their ideas?
To have it guaranteed that their ideas, whether for an app or a sensor or a new piece of bespoke equipment, could be turned into a real, tangible and highly valuable team asset?
That people in the team were no longer wasting hours, days, even weeks of their time copying and pasting to make amateur looking reports.
How much better would it be if they were instead able to spend all that time focused on delivering their real talents for the team – focused on preparing your teams athletes to win?
We’ve delivered all this more over the last 7 years.
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.
