Who needs custom sports software development?
Whether you are an athlete, a federal representative or an event organizator, - the importance of technology to support you/your team to achieve greater access cannot be ignored. Worldwide, the entire industry of competitive or leisure sports is increasingly shifting to take advantage of technology to help athletes achieve their maximum potential. A recent survey also projected that the sports technology market is expected to grow at a rate of 17.5% CAGR and is expected to touch $40 billion by 2026. Whether it’s a Video Assisted Referee (VAR) in soccer, TV Umpire in cricket, wearable devices in individual fitness or data analytics in league events - the adoption of technology assists in almost all forms of sports.
Some reasons to adopt custom software development for sports include:
Enhancing training programs
Sports-focused software applications leverage cutting-edge techniques to reinvent coaching programs backed by advanced technology stacks. This includes advances in data analytics, biometrics, wearable technology and VR to help build immersive training programs for better workout metrics. A diligently developed application considers all aspects of the sport while unifying analytics and visualization technology to help improve athlete/team results.
Supercharge fan engagement
Sporting associations and federations are increasingly reaping the benefits of building fantasy league applications for a more interactive fan engagement. Emerging technologies offer curated solutions to help teams, sports leagues, federations and professional athletes connect with their fans. Such solutions often rely on efficient low-code/no-code platforms to build branded applications that help sports organizations learn more about their fans and keep them engaged.
Boosting athlete health and rehabilitation
Focused applications assist team doctors and physios to assess different statistics of athletes’ health. This can aid in faster recovery from injuries as health professionals can plan and execute an optimized rehabilitation program. Rehabilitation plans based on historical data of athletes are also useful when assessing athlete and team rankings. While maintaining individual-level fitness is one of the primary goals, these historical data also help with maintaining compliances such as team registrations, anti-doping procedures, meeting eligibility criteria as per the Olympics charter or other governing bodies, etc.
Guiding sports intelligence
The growth of data-driven applications has facilitated the utilization of AI for sports management and entertainment to build immersive 3D games. With data analytics, sports teams and league managers can leverage the precision of modern computing in various ways. Through sensors and wearables, sports personalities can participate and offer AI-augmented coaching. A machine-led, intelligent data also aids managers to improve athlete and team rankings while simulating sports events in real-time.
Automated team management
Sports teams and franchisees operate just like a conventional business entity. To help such entities, applications leverage Machine Learning (ML) techniques to perform numerous administrative and fan engagement operations that require minimal human intervention. Custom-built applications streamline collaboration and management of different departments, including payroll, procurement, advertising, health records and more. These applications also remain seamlessly connected with web content management systems to automate marketing efforts to help boost fan engagement.
