We now cover 10+ sports globally and have developed professional services in football (Soccer), NBA, NFL and NHL. We continue to explore new sports every year.

Our tools are now used by 27 of 30 Major League Baseball clubs to give them the edge they need to succeed in a highly competitive marketplace.


PLAYER SOLUTIONS
Working with our franchise partners, we have developed player-centric applications to assess performances and aid the preparation of upcoming games. Video solutions are tailored to each player with the ability to download video clips locally to the device. The platform will be extended to professional players across sports.

PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS
Making the science of predictive analytics a reality with algorithmic engines combined with sporting expertise. We have achieved measurable success and now create APIs to power applications for global clients in broadcast, betting and performance. Making decisions is no longer based built on opinion, but fact.


BROADCAST & TV
We translate analytics-rich content into broadcast tools used on-air to inform and educate viewers. Our analytics, consisting of commentary notes and on-screen graphics, are fed to networks globally, including nearly half of the regional & national broadcasters in the US. Most recently we have partnered with two leading sports broadcasters in the UK.


BRANDS & SPONSORS
Our focus on unique analytical insights enables us to create bespoke sponsor-able content for partners looking to align their brand with sport. Our compelling insights combined with the big brand vales of Bloomberg bring credibility to any sponsorship activation programmes. This content can be distributed at key moments in the year to maximize exposure.

FAN RESOURCES
Our analysts are experts in data and sports, and create analytics-rich articles that are hosted on our exclusive content site, StatsInsights.com. These uniquely, data–centric angles make StatsInsights the primary source for analytical insights and data-derived content on sport. Our innovative content is regularly picked up by global media.


SECOND SCREEN, FANTASY & GAMING
