Partnership Brings Comprehensive Sports Data and Analytics Experience to iOS and Android Compatible Devices
LONDON/NEW YORK– February 26, 2020 – Stats Perform, the revolutionary leader in sports AI and data, and Applicaster, the company simplifying the development and lifecycle management of direct-to-consumer media applications, today announced a new partnership to deliver a complete sports mobile application solution through an iOS and Android compatible plugin.
Using Stats Perform’s advanced Opta football data and Applicaster’s Zapp marketplace experience with modern layouts and navigations, the partnership helps leagues, federations, competitions and companies launch modern mobile applications using fast, reliable data. The mobile plugins integrate multiple partner technologies around game and tournament statistics, including mapping, tournament analytics, social platforms outreach and push notifications, creating an all-inclusive mobile sports solution.
"Applicaster and Stats Perform are perfectly aligned to create an all-encompassing mobile offering for some of the biggest sports competitions in the world,” Patrick Stuart, Senior Director - Sports at Applicaster said. “Separately, Applicaster and Stats Perform have been working with some of the biggest global football competitions. Together, we can seamlessly integrate our solutions to provide a modern, sleek mobile application that creates a complete mobile fan experience and generate new revenue and sponsorship dollars for our customers. Our new partnership is a perfect fit.”
Last year, Stats Perform and Applicaster partnered to deliver the official mobile application for Copa America, offering fans an all-inclusive mobile solution that increased sponsorship opportunities. The Copa America app created a spike in ticket and merchandise revenue and exceeded all engagement and ‘session’ targets.
Applicaster joins Stats Perform’s Sports Partners Intelligence Network (SPIN) which combines Stats Perform’s leading sports intelligence offerings (data, insights, analytics, machine learning, computer vision and AI), with top partners to develop complementary solutions that support joint customers and the sports market.
“Through our new partnership with Applicaster, our advanced Opta football data is added into the backend of Applicaster’s mobile plugin, creating a modern, clean and easy way to receive match stats,” Stats Perform Senior Vice President of Global Partners and Channels Wayne Ford said. “Together with Applicaster, we can begin to replicate this unique offering to new and existing customers, creating a seamless mobile application offering. We are thrilled to form a new offering through our partnership and officially add Applicaster to Stats Perform’s SPIN program.”
