Gameplan Appoints iSPORTCONNECT As A Strategic Partner
By Community | September 8, 2020
Gameplan is an integrated workforce management software that helps companies manage their internal and casual teams alongside their agencies. It is a centralised, end-to-end workforce solution. Gameplan is an SaaS solution which aims to help these businesses reduce cost and increase revenue by streamlining processes in areas such as assigning work to suppliers, communications, access control, real-time job information, time and attendance, forecasting and analytics.
This partnership comes at a time when the unprecedented challenges created by the Coronavirus pandemic have driven Facilities Management Companies in stadiums around the world to reconsider the structure and digitisation of their workforces.
From our first conversations with Sree and the team it was clear that they could add value to our business rapidly.
Gameplan estimates that operators are losing millions each year from staff churn, time theft, inaccurate billing, poor time keeping processes and lack of visibility across key analytics. The ‘future of work’ is a hot topic right now with facilities managers increasingly realising the importance of deploying leading technology solutions in this space. Gameplan is certainly at the forefront of this trend.
Duncan Mitchell, CEO & Co-Founder of Gameplan said: ” iSPORTCONNECT came highly recommended to us from a number of credible advisors. From our first conversations with Sree and the team it was clear that they could add value to our business rapidly. We are looking forward to working closely together.”
iSPORTCONNECT Founder and CEO Sree Varma said: “I was introduced to Gameplan through mutual contacts and it was immediately clear that we shared the same entrepreneurial spirit. We immediately understood how their product can benefit those within the industry and where we could help them develop”
