Basketball Victoria and refbook are set to create a modern, online solution for managing Victorian technical officials through a newly announced partnership.
refbook will become Basketball Victoria’s Technical Officials Digital Partner to provide an advanced and dynamic platform for basketball officials across the state’s leagues and competitions.
The online solution provides flexibility and functionality for administrators and will service organisations from the grassroots level through to elite leagues.
refbook Head of Commercial Jon Chapman said the partnership with Basketball Victoria will continue to develop a world-class digital future to solve the sophisticated requirements within technical officiating.
“refbook is excited to announce our partnership with Basketball Victoria and deliver the technology to assist in managing their officials,” Chapman said. “refbook will deliver Basketball Victoria an ever-expanding solution to quickly and more accurately manage and appoint referees, instructors and scoretable officials with fewer manual processes.
Our passion is to continually push this platform forward – the relationship to–date with Basketball Victoria has been invaluable and we look forward to implementing a raft of new features in the next 12 months.”
Basketball Victoria CEO Nick Honey said the addition of refbook to Victorian basketball will enable an easier, more convenient user experience for administrators and officials alike, while being able to deliver representative league appointments.
“We have been listening to the needs of our members and we know it is important to have a leading officials management provider to complement our partnership with PlayHQ,” Honey said. “We believe refbook is the best platform available to cater for Victorian basketball’s officiating requirements.
“refbook fulfils our need to provide administrators with a program that easily assigns and manages technical officials in a connected process.
“As with our PlayHQ partnership, partnering with refbook is a proud achievement as we’re keen to support Victorian-based technology providers that push the sport industry ahead.
Basketball Victoria Head of Officials Jo Chu said refbook understands the needs of both officials and administrators and has an exciting vision for the future.
“Our research showed that most current technology has not kept pace with current design and mobility standards, or the different and detailed needs of various technical officiating groups,” Chu said. “refbook is the ideal officials’ platform to integrate within our digital systems with its advanced features, ongoing roadmap and partner-focused mentality.”
The delivery of mobile apps, for both Android and iOS, is a major benefit of refbook, putting it as forward-looking solution for online officials management.
refbook’s mission is to improve the administration of technical officials through automation opportunities, data capture and analytical insights. refbook is a fresh solution built on a robust digital platform that solves the challenges of real-life administrators and their officials.
refbook is a sport officials’ assignment and management software from Melbourne, Australia. Its guiding principle is to use technology and automation to empower and connect sports administrators and officials. refbook is committed to providing a technology solution that meets the needs of all sporting levels, equally servicing both administrators and officials.
