Pointstreak Launches Mobile Stats Site
Jun 25, 2010
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. announced today a mobile platform for their real-time sports statistics specialized for today’s mobile devices, such as the BlackBerry and iPhone. “Pointstreak Mobile” can be found by surfing to www.pointstreak.com on a mobile phone, or by typing in the dedicated URL m.pointstreak.com into a mobile phone’s web browser.
The first release of Pointstreak Mobile will display scores and statistics for Pointstreak’s baseball clients, but the company has intentions to roll out similar mobile sites for its other sports, such as hockey, lacrosse, soccer, etc., and for all levels of competition.
“Pointstreak is dedicated to providing the best experience possible for the sports fan. Since more and more fans are following their favorite team on their mobile phone, it was a natural fit for us to build a fan-friendly mobile site” said Scott Secord, President / CEO of Pointstreak, “We made a conscious decision to not just produce a stripped-down version of our stats website, but to tailor it to the mobile environment by taking advantage of today’s advanced smartphones and by keeping in mind the user experience. I also want to rest assure our customers that although our mobile strategy is starting with our baseball clients, we intend to quickly roll out mobile versions for our other sports and for all levels of play”.
The quickest way to create a mobile site is by taking your existing website and simply removing the graphically heavy elements that chew up bandwidth, slow down page load speeds and make navigation difficult. However, Pointstreak’s technical team had bigger ambitions and they set out to build a dedicated mobile site from the ground up. The result is a clean, fast, user-friendly and statistically rich mobile website that takes advantage of the today’s powerful mobile devices.
As an example, Pointstreak’s mobile baseball stats site completely replicates the company’s well-known GAME LIVE feature (part of the company’s Pointstreak Stats brand) which provides fans with real-time updates of the game’s score, including complete baseball statistics found on the regular stats website. Using the latest web browsing technology, there is no need for a fan to refresh their screen to see if there’s an update while following their favorite game; all updates appear on their mobile phone seconds after it actually occurred at the baseball diamond. For instance, on their mobile device, a fan can see the ball/strike/out count in real-time or how many, and which, runners are on base.
“We’re very happy with the mobile site our tech team produced. We did this the way it should be done and we think our clients and their fans will like what they see” added Dominik Szopa, Pointstreak’s VP of Technology.
All of Pointstreak’s baseball clients and their fans can immediately start enjoying their stats through Pointstreak’s mobile site at http://m.pointstreak.com/.
