Azuki have been an instrumental and trusted partner of England Netball’s for almost 10 years, they continue to go above and beyond to ensure that the provision is robust and continues to provide efficiencies and benefits to our ever-evolving operations.
An evolving solution
Using Ruby on Rails, we generated an online system that intuitively allowed programme managers to update attendance registers. This information instantly and automatically creates data sets that regional and HQ administrators can review and manage. This collation of standardised data means that it can be compared simply against their national and regional growth targets generated in association with Sport England.
After the successful implementation of the platform, further development work was undertaken to support additional programmes and add new functionality. A key area for England Netball was to improve visibility of their programmes finanical performance. This new financial information has enabled decisions on the viability of individual programmes as well as providing instant and reliable financial data to help drive commercial decisions.
Work hasn't stopped there with the platform moving beyond monitoring and analysing data. In 2019 we seamlessly integrated the platform with England Netball’s booking system. By communicating bi-directionally with the booking system via APIs, a level of automation has been added to the Monitoring System that has not only increased efficiency but also accuracy.
Our relationship with Azuki has remained strong throughout the partnership; we feel that when we need changes, find bugs or ask for advice they are always prompt to respond with easily digestible and proactive solutions.
