Combined technology by Televic and RefAssist evaluates referees more efficiently
It is not easy for sports federations to track their referees’ knowledge level efficiently on an ongoing basis. This has led Belgian tech pioneers Televic and RefAssist deciding to develop a combined solution that offers a smart response to this challenge.
A rock-solid combo
In recent years, RefAssist has built up a rock-solid reputation with its platform for managing, scheduling, communicating with and following up on referees. Televic, in turn, has developed a smart digital platform called ‘assessmentQ’ that can evaluate and increase knowledge both thoroughly and efficiently.
An integrated solution
Combining these two technologies has enabled the two companies to provide an innovative solution for various sports federations. In the case of RefAssist, they plan to use the insights collected by assessmentQ to boost the efficiency of their referee scheduling and follow-ups.
Gregory Delhougne, Business Development Manager at RefAssist, explains: "We see a clear need for a high-performance e-learning and e-assessment tool in our industry. Developing such a platform ourselves would be difficult and labour-intensive. After a thorough analysis and evaluation of the options available to us, we settled on assessmentQ. Televic's platform offers everything our customers need in terms of online training. On top of that, the ability to exchange and collect data is crucial to the following up of referees on a daily basis."
"An innovative Belgian technology company that is a leader in its niche market, we have found a partner in RefAssist that shares the same ambitions as Televic. That made it logical for us to team up and develop a powerful digital solution that responds to a genuine need for our users", according to Bart Sagaert, Sales Manager at Televic Education.
Pilot project underway
By pooling their strengths and experience, both RefAssist and Televic aim to further differentiate themselves within their respective niche markets. In the meantime, an initial pilot project is current underway within international football, with results expected in due course.
