World in Motion is one of the UK’s foremost sports management companies, with a reputation for both professional excellence and integrity. The company offers a comprehensive and exclusive management service to footballers, and each aspect of a player’s career is dealt with by a qualified expert.
Over the last 20 years World in Motion has represented a host of international players & has worked with some of the world’s leading clubs.
World In Motion approached Blue Tea to deliver a solution that would solve two core business challenges:
1. Provide a central database of:
- Football clubs & their player requirements
- Players on World In Motion’s books
- Other business critical data
2. Improve the internal communication between agents and internal staff
Blue Tea worked closely with World In Motion in order to understand their business and to identify the users of the application. In addition to providing them with a detailed specification to show that we understood their requirements, we also delivered a prototype of the solution that was designed to be aesthetically pleasing, intuitive & engaging for their staff. We delivered the application using Agile methodology over a series of sprints that allowed us to address the client’s priorities and respond to changes in a flexible way.
World In Motion’s Player Management Solution is a dynamic web application that can be accessed by their team wherever they are in the world. It has been built responsively to ensure optimised viewing across a wide range of devices including mobile, desktop and tablet. Because of the fast-paced nature of the sports management industry, we have built an easy-to-update application and have included simply tuned functionality that keeps agents informed, with automated emails based on a range of business-critical triggers.
The bespoke application that Blue Tea have built for World In Motion allows them to respond to their clients’ needs quickly and effectively as well as communicate internally as easily as possible.
“Blue Tea helped us develop a brief for the platform and really understood what we were trying to achieve. Their proposal was full featured and clear so we always knew where we were in the process. The end result is exactly what we were after, and all staff at World In Motion now use the app as part of their day to day business activity.”
Plans For The Future
Following a successful delivery of the platform, Blue Tea remains a trusted software partner of World In Motion, continually improving the Player Management System but also support WIM to grow their business. In the future we will be working with them on integrating the platform with a number of additional data sources. This will help to keep their team up to speed with the latest player & industry trends, data & statistics.
