STACK SPORTS (SPORTSTG) PARTNER WITH PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS GROUP
Stack Sports (SportsTG), the leading provider of digital solutions to international, national, grassroots and professional sporting organisations across New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe, and United Kingdom has today announced a partnership with Predictive Analytics Group (PAG), an organisation that provides advanced analytics but also solves many problems for sporting organisations when it comes to fixturing.
Stack Sports partnership will see both organisations work hand in hand in saving administrators’ hundreds of hours each year when it comes to generating season fixtures and schedules. Using PAG’s advanced Smart Fixturing tool one current joint customer generates over 40,000 fixtures annually across 150 competitions with over 1000 unique requests at the click of a button. The tool uses advanced mathematical optimisation frameworks to ensure the fixtures meet hundreds of unique constraints and business rules, while minimising fixture clashes.
The synergy between both businesses is aligned in solving sports and administrators’ problems when it comes to scheduling and doing it in a short period of time. PAG’s smart fixturing tool is ideal for large and community leagues, professional leagues and competitions across a variety of sports.
Andy Graham, General Manager for Stack Sports – APAC/EMEA, said: “ For years our business has provided the best competition management platform across the globe. PAG’s Smart and Advanced Fixturing platform adds to our product suite and reduces the hours of work for not only volunteers but professional administrators across all sports. We look forward to more of our customers utilising the great tools PAG have to offer.”
Dr Theo Gazos, CEO of PAG, said "Our vision at PAG has always been to solve complex problems by employing the latest advancements in AI and Mathematical Optimisation for its clients. We have been humbled by the effectiveness of the Smart Fixturing application and the time and pain it has removed for sports organisations in their fixturing processes. Our new partnership with Stack Sports will allow more organisations across any range of sporting codes to build optimal schedules in a fraction of the time it currently takes, while meeting the demands of its many stakeholders, and of course, minimising scheduling conflicts."
