It all started to solve a problem
Like most great things in the world, SmartStat was started to solve a problem. There were limited options when it came to tracking stats in real-time, especially true for Rugby Union. So our founder Ryan Thul set out to try and find the best solution for his team. What he came to discover is that there were no solutions other than expensive solutions which with a limited budget for his team meant that it was back to pen and paper.
Knowing he was not the only person that needed this, he set out to start SmartStat. An affordable, yet extremely effective tool for sports teams to track stats in real-time during a game and get reports that help a coach / manager use that information to help improve their team.
