Whether it is professionals or little 4-year-olds kicking soccer balls down a field, sports have everything: action, excitement, drama, and most importantly, FUN; unfortunately, the current management processes and tools for sporting events aren't so much fun. The way sports events are managed presents a number of challenges that minimize the participant and spectator ease and enjoyment as well as cause event organizers to pull their hair out with the inefficiencies, errors, and missed opportunities.

In the U.S. alone, the industry is worth nearly $38 Billion, yet outdated manual processes, a lack of integration, limited engagement opportunities, data fragmentation, safety concerns, and a lack of innovation have all hindered the management of sporting events. To address the numerous shortcomings, iSportz founders and sister and brother duo CEO Arathi Rajagopalan and Rohan Rajagopalan, along with Vijay Krishnan, have developed a first-of-its-kind B2B2C platform that streamlines management, enhances engagement, and leverages technology to create more seamless and enjoyable sports experiences for participants, fans, and organizers alike.

iSportz Management Tools

The iSportz team's comprehensive suite of management tools is tailored to optimize various aspects of sports organizations' operations. Through the iSportz platform, organizers can efficiently manage events and scheduling to ensure smooth coordination of tournaments and leagues. The team management functionalities enable coaches and administrators to manage rosters and performance tracking, and integrated analytics provide valuable insights for clubs and teams that enable them to make informed decisions and optimize team performance. While member management tools facilitate the organization's membership processes, new registration and communication can be handled easily, which fosters strong community engagement.

The iSportz solution also comes with built-in learning management features to deliver educational content and training programs effectively. Its fundraising capabilities allow clubs and teams to garner financial support efficiently as well. Likewise, there are merchandising options that enable teams and event organizers to promote branded merchandise with little to no effort. Of course, prioritizing player safety and risk management, iSportz has also integrated tools and protocols to uphold safety standards and mitigate risks for players, teams, and organizations.

iSportz Engagement Tools

iSportz's engagement features empower individuals to immerse themselves in the world of sports, connect with like-minded individuals, and foster community engagement and interaction within the sporting ecosystem. Rajagopalan shares, "It's a LinkedIn meets Instagram kind of concept where we have people from the sporting community being followed; we have a lot of scores exchanged, and we exchange a lot of information."

Through social networking features, athletes, fans, and enthusiasts can connect, share experiences, and build relationships, enhancing the sense of community. "There's a lot of live content. You can share what's on your mind on a daily basis. You could comment on some videos and scores and so on. It's basically a community-building tool as well."

iSportz e-auctioning capabilities provide an innovative avenue for fundraising and acquiring sports-related items, promoting active participation and support. Their job and leaderboards facilitate talent discovery and recognition within the community to foster a culture of achievement and growth, and to help underserved populations have opportunities to participate as well.

Rajagopalan explains, "Our engagement piece is about to become available on the Apple Store, and the Google Play Store already has it available. The iSportz management platform has a bunch of really cool features to offer. It has the all-in-one kind of a membership concept. You could manage your events, clubs and teams on it. You have a dashboard that gives you a lot of intelligence and insights from financial, to membership trends to events trends, etcetera. We have the mobile app capability where you can run campaigns on the app as well. You could have forums, discussions and threads. The possibilities are endless."

iSportz Entertainment 

iSportz's entertainment side will offer an immersive experience through a range of innovative features. E-games and virtual sports provide users with the opportunity to engage in virtual competitions and experiences, and eventually, the platform's fantasy games will allow participants to create and manage their dream teams, adding an element of strategy and excitement to the sporting experience. The eventual integration of the metaverse with iSportz will enable users to explore virtual environments and interact with others in unique ways, fostering a sense of community and connection.

Eventually, iSportz's global esports leagues and competitions will provide a platform for competitive gaming on a global scale, attracting players and spectators from around the world. With support for multi-device platforms, including consoles and VR, iSportz will ensure accessibility and versatility by catering to diverse gaming preferences and experiences. 

iSportz Sets Itself Apart

iSportz's sports management platform sets itself apart from the competition with its streamlined registration, payment, and event organization and its mobile app that enhances engagement for athletes, parents, fans, and event organizers. However, the platform's comprehensive nature, flexibility, competitive pricing, and excellent customer support take it to the next level. Rajagopalan shares, "Furthermore, we segment our customers. These features are available to all our users. However, we go the extra mile for our enterprise clients, offering extensive customization options, including plugins, extensions, and integrations tailored to their specific needs and existing systems." And he adds, "We have an innovation lab dedicated to our enterprise clients where we find ways to integrate multiple systems, data flows, user flows and so on."

iSportz Success

"Our clients are happy," shares Arathi Rajagopalan. "The majority of our clients initially sign up for a one-year agreement. However, after experiencing the value of our services, prestigious organizations like USA Water Ski, Alliance Fastpitch, Futures League and USA Shooting have all opted for five-year contracts. This significant commitment from our clients demonstrates their satisfaction with our software and its suitability for their needs."

Rajagopalan adds, "And the very fact that we are looking at over 60,000 users and over $5.8 million worth of transactions on the platform. People are using the platform."

The iSportz' team is far from satisfied and will continue to expand their engagement and entertainment offerings with further beta-testing with the app and continuing to separate revenue streams and further enhance their value proposition.

iSportz is on a journey to redefine sports management and sporting experiences worldwide. iSportz is connecting a very disjointed and outdated sports ecosystem and bringing it into the digital age. With clients like USA WaterSki and plans for global expansion, iSportz is on its way to capturing a significant market share in the $100 billion global sports industry. In sports management, engagement, and entertainment, iSportz looks like the team to root for!
