Iterpro is delighted to announce the release of their brand new Director app.
Not everybody knows that the average club ratio between revenues and wages is 60-80%, which means players represent the main financial asset of a football club, thus any decision about them it’s a major business decision.
Despite technological innovation allowing us to access a new world of data regarding players activity, most of the management teams still rely on their gut, and they likely carry out strategic football operations such as transfers and players contract negotiations in a very old fashioned way, where intuition and experience is the main skill even though we are talking about decisions that cost clubs millions.
Indeed, the process is very inefficient and involves lawyers, secretaries, financial controllers, directors, scouts. This often leads the workflow to become hectic, time-consuming and most importantly permits poor decision making. In this fast-paced environment, For football decision-makers, it is crucial to access all the key information, where they want when they want, football is truly a 24/7 industry and action and reactions is required constantly.
