Mobile Apps

Our Native Mobile Apps for Android and iOS devices allow users to easily enter lineups and match events live on the match day using their smartphones.

In fact, all standard match day operations can be fully executed on the pitch using mobile apps, and without the need for a laptop.

Our Native Mobile Apps can be also used in offline mode, without internet access. Once the device is again connected to the internet, the changes are synchronized with the server.

Users of our iOS/Android Native Mobile Apps are notified of any relevant changes onto the home screen of their smartphone using push notifications. E.g. when a referee is appointed to a match, she/he will immediately receive a push notification to her/his smartphone (in addition to an e-mail notification).
