Basketball Ireland use SportLoMo software
In no other sport is there such an interest in player statistics, Box Scores and season Averages’ are essential viewing for your average Basketball fan. To cater for this BI use Sportlomo for its player stats system, box scores, results section, schedule and player profiles.
The system updates the league tables and results section in realtime and them within a specified time limit the match stats and box scores are displayed. The stats input system does all the calculations and percentage and displays it through a pop up beside every score for easy of use. All data is captured by API’s and displays directly on the Sportlomo B.I. website.
It was important to BI to bring more visibility to the best performing players, so rather than a large bank of tabular data a Top Five Performance league was created for players with their club logos.
Mobile Responsiveness on mobile (cell) and tablet was very important. Over 65%of the site visitors login on a mobile/tablet platform.
