SportPAd is sports fixtures management software for Universities. It allows users to manage competitions, facilities and participant payment through one cloud-based solution. Its famed semester templating functions have saved the UK’s leading Universities 1000s of employee hours.

The Challenge

SportPAD was born out of collaboration with the University of Sheffield, who approached us seeking advice on the best way to manage their extensive sporting competitions.

Our competitive analysis revealed that existing offers were too generic to serve the specific requirements of Universities and so we developed something that would, under the agreement that we would then market it under a banner that was to become SportPAD.

As with all our work, we built the solution around the client, factoring in the need for ease of duplication term-to-term, portability and – above all, ease of use.

The Outcome

Today, SportPAD enjoys market leader status in sports fixtures management for Higher Education. It remains a sub-brand of Rocca. and is marketed, supported and continually developed by us.
