There is a quote from Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder, that encapsulates why systems like Smartabase are important.
The most meaningful way to differentiate your company from your competitors – the best way to put distance between you and the crowd – is to do an outstanding job with information. How you gather, manage and use information will determine whether you win or lose.
Bill Gates – Microsoft Co-founder
Gathering, managing and using information about people who are actively participating in sports, education, health and other fields is what Smartabase is designed to do. Smartabase’s success, and the success of Fusion Sport’s clients using Smartabase, is due to its capacity for doing an outstanding job with information.
Some of the Australian-based sporting organisations that use Smartabase include Australian Rugby Union (ARU), the National Rugby League (NRL), the Australian Football League (AFL) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Internationally, the Scottish Institute of Sport, British Athletics, Aspire Academy, the English Cricket Board and the Qatar Olympic Committee, among others, use Smartabase in sports-related environments.
Outside of sports organisations, Smartabase has been successfully adapted for education and research by institutions such as Canberra University and Griffith University who are using Smartabase for midwifery, nursing and physiotherapy education and research. Other universities, such as Deakin University and Victoria University, use Smartabase in sports science research. State police forces, Employ Health, the military and England’s Royal Opera House use Smartabase for personnel management and development. New clients are discovering that Smartabase, while developed initially for athlete management, is a valuable tool for collecting, analysing and utilising data in a wide range of settings.
