Technology underpins event development
Since 2013, ESF Events has used a bespoke web solution developed by CGI for both scheduling tournaments and for providing a ‘score centre’ web solution that enables parents to monitor the progress of their children’s team.
To help the company to deliver its events even more effectively, CGI has now launched a new suite of iOS and Android dedicated score centre apps for ESF Events.
There are three native apps for each platform (iOS and Android), and each is dedicated to ESF Events’ major brands: Tigers Challenge (Rugby Union), Rhinos Challenge (Rugby League) and the ESF Festival of Football.
The new apps include updates of results, schedules and tables, and were modelled on the functionality of leading sports apps such as Sky Sports and BBC Sport. ESF skins were also added to photos for brand awareness on social media.
The project referenced in this case study was delivered by Xibis, part of SCISYS, which CGI acquired in December 2019.
