Web Applications including business directories, polls and auctions

Web Applications

The sports industry requires specialist tools to deliver content in a timely and productive fashion. Sotic engineers solutions that provide its customers and their members, supporters and fans with the latest in web applications.

A number of these include:

Business Directory

The business directory tool allows a club's business partners and sponsors to market their services to a crucial part of the sponsor's market place - the club's supporters, and will also prove a key tool for clients wishing to maximize their sponsorship income. Sponsors are also able to make their products and services available to all site users in a way that integrates fully with the customer's existing web presence through full integration with the Reddot content management system already in use by all Sotic's customers.

Competitions Engine

Running and managing interactive competitions can be a relatively time consuming process, however they provide valuable feedback and customer data. Sotic's competitions engine allows our customers to build multiple competitions in any particular format as well as deliver correct entries and automate customer data into central databases and Email marketing lists.

Clubfinder

Sotic has developed a product that helps Sports Governing Bodies to direct new supporters to their local club; potentially converting them from supporters to participants. The software integrates with Google Maps and Sotic CRM and works using post codes for venues and clubs. This software is used by the WRU, ArcheryGB and the Premiership Rugby Academy.

Toolbars

The toolbar, like a Google toolbar, is downloaded and sits at the top of the web browser meaning that your news and website are easily accessible whatever website they're viewing. Fans can link directly to your online ticket office, online shop, or to any page on your site you wish without them even being on your website. The toolbar is fully customisable and can be professionally designed by Sotic to match your branding and give it that "official" feel. Features of the toolbar include
  • Prominent logo/button linking directly to your website
  • A set of buttons of your choice linking to prominent sections of your website (e.g. ticketing, online shop, upcoming events)
  • A dropdown menu section including whatever and as many links you want
  • Latest scrolling news from your website
  • Stats to see how many downloads and number of click-throughs from toolbar to website

Polls

Sotic has a number of software solutions for Polls, which provide the ability for sport's bodies to gauge interest levels and interact with their visitors and collect data.

Auctions

These allow sports sites to raise revenues from memorabilia and 'money can't buy' items. This has allowed many clubs to raise significant amounts for their charities and Academies.

Sports Blogs

Sotic have an integrated blog system that allow users to create a sporting diary and allow viewers to leave comments in an interactive format. These blogs can be particularly useful on sport websites in creating interesting content by publishing coaches, athletes and supporters views and experiences.

User Generated Content

Sotic have integrated user generated content, that allows fans and users of the site to write their own content, which can be published to your Official site. Users simply register their details and begin writing. The site owner can then edit the content as required and publish to live.

Player/Athlete Ratings

Increase interaction with your supporter base by providing them with the ability rate their team or individual's performance.

Team Picker

Sotic have developed a team picker that allows users to choose a team or athlete from a predefined list. This can be used for Player of the Year awards, fantasy teams, Greatest Ever Team, or just Team of the Season. All these can be styled according to your needs and incorporate sponsors.
