"It is our goal to provide a system that can enhance the experience of organizers, officials, athletes and spectators," says Matthias Polig, CEO of the Dolomites-based software house Vertical-Life. "Our team looks forward to contributing our experience in software development, user interface design and event organisation."
The new software will be used in all IFSC competitions, such as World Cups and World Championships. Key features for its design are user-friendliness and ease of data entry in support of judges for a smooth running of competitions. IFSC President, Marco Maria Scolaris comments: "We have been impressed by this young team of highly skilled individuals. We are confident their dynamism and fresh look into Sport Climbing will produce an incredible platform available to all our member federations."
The IFSC new partnership is part of a project intended to facilitate the growth of National Federations and the development of the sport globally. It will be possible to configured the software in order to satisfy requirements and needs of each federation. The new IFSC membership and result system is scheduled to be launched by the beginning of 2019.
