Sports clubs’ knowhow meets Vincit’s digital expertise
Suomisport is a fully tailored digital platform with specific service capabilities for national federations, local sports clubs and individual athletes and their parents. We’ve been building the platform one section at a time for several years, with the clubs’ experience and knowhow and Vincit’s digital expertise as building blocks. In addition to design and development, Vincit has supported the FOC as a strategic partner in recognizing the countless possibilities that digitalization has to offer.
The federation-level service selection includes functionalities such as license and insurance sales and event management. The club-level services bring several everyday benefits to athletes, coaches and club volunteers alike. Signing up to practice sessions and events, communication tools and participation monitoring are all conveniently available within one platform, while automation offers significant ease with reporting and financial support applications. The fully digital payment integration helps club members easily manage their payments, and the elimination of paper invoicing offers the clubs significant savings in time and resources. The service also allows for integrations to financial management systems, improving the quality of operations within the clubs and supporting good governing practices.
Smooth services to athletes, a window into all activities for clubs
Suomisport offers the FOC a modern real-time window to Finnish sports. The data also helps the clubs to stay up to date on their own operations. With the significant increase in the level of self-service in member services, clubs have been able to focus their resources on what’s truly essential. This has been one of Suomisport’s goals from the beginning, but the scale of savings in both time and costs has been a positive surprise.
Athletes and parents are particularly pleased with the well-functioning digital services, such as quick mobile payments and sign ups. Suomisport has taken its place as the one-stop-shop for the whole family’s sports-related errands.
