The revolutionary new Career Advice app to make the most of your player’s career
SciSports is pleased to announce the release of its latest data-driven solution, the Career Advice application.
As one of the first data intelligence providers to directly advise professional footballers in their transfer decisions, SciSports has a decorated history of working directly with some of the game’s biggest names. Including players from Europe’s top leagues, the company has expertise in using data to support players in some of their biggest career moves.
The Career Advice application gives players and agents independent support in trying to find the best club for their specific needs. Ranging from suitability in terms of playing style and formation fit to transfer likeliness, the Career Advice application provides comprehensive support for its users.
What is the SciSports Career Advice application?
SciSports’ track record speaks for itself when it comes to using data-driven insights in transfer moves. In the winter of 2016, for example, SciSports played a pivotal role in the move of Memphis Depay from Manchester United to Olympique Lyonnais. Through the use of data-driven insights, Depay ultimately chose to join the Ligue 1 club and has since become the club captain, signaling a successful career move with the help of SciSports’ insights. Back then, Depay’s transfer was recognized as the first ‘laptop transfer’ in football. Since that moment we constantly improved this service and are really proud that now is the moment to make this service available to professional players all around the world.
Here at SciSports, we believe that data-driven solutions can play a big role in helping players figure out the best career move for their own needs. To solve this, the Career Advice application provides insights on the following metrics to then provide a Club Fit score:
- Potential Development
- Playing Time
- Playing Style
- Club Status
Each of the above metrics provides a score out of five for each player search in relation to each club within the database. With over 3,000 clubs included, players at all levels of professional football are ensured detailed analysis of prospective career moves. In sum, providing comprehensive support through tangible and identifiable metrics that most matter in transfers.
Through the development of these insights from a requested report basis to a standalone Career Advice product, clubs and agencies can now directly gain insights to ultimately aid their decision-making process. In total, the Career Advice application is split into the following functionalities:
- Transfer Advice
- Club Report
- Player Report
The offering of three different types of Career Advice essentially provides the opportunity for users to present data-driven insights in the way they see best fit. Next to that, downloadable PDF files of requested reports means that a user can directly use the report for their intended reasons. For instance, an agent presenting the report to a player or potential club for the client.
What are the added benefits of the Career Advice application?
Through using the Career Advice application, users can access a range of benefits and ultimately gain a competitive edge over others in the industry. Data-driven insights within a transfer have become common practice in the last few years and directly using SciSports for this can be extremely beneficial for finding the best career move.
In terms of using data in a transfer, it can provide an objective view on what may be the best move for a player in key areas. By identifying the areas that matter most to determine a successful transfer move, SciSports is pleased to help its users in finding the best possible destinations.
Automated ways of working can also save valuable time for users to spend time on the things that matter most. Clear overviews of the most interesting markets – based on a user’s input – helps to remove the external noise and focus clearly on helping the player in their career progression.
