We started of with a small team of 4 elements but in 2014 the team grows in numbers and know-how.
Today we have managers, designers, programmers and professionals of the soccer world as scouts, coaches, trainers and sports agents.
Talent Spy helps us a lot in simplifying "things" by the access that we have. I can see who the athlete is through the photo, the opinions about him on the various reports made and from there it’s much simpler to segment, for instance, an athlete born in 2005, left footed, and the program will present us athletes which fit those characteristics. It is therefore very important, facilitating a lot in terms of the reading of what we want and the decisions we have to make based on this new tool.
Scouting nowadays isn’t just a player recruitment area; it’s much more than that. It is responsible for the game, the match analysis, the training analysis, the opponent’s analysis. Therefore, it covers a very ample set of competences. [The new technologies in scouting] within the football industry are highly developed and although they don’t win matches, they help. See here his full testimony
Proeleven, as a sports management company focused on the new technologies and currently representing around 90 athletes, joined Talent Spy software from the start because it believes the documental organization is key to making rational and reasoned decisions. This tool allows you to create athlete’s individual files, allowing online built of quantitative and qualitative reports in real time, anywhere and for any scout on the ground. It also allows customized settings for the company organization as well as its modus operandi. In short an investment that adds value.
Scouting is of vital importance for us, because we want to choose well within a specified profile (...) is obviously an important tool that we use almost on a daily basis because we are in constant observation, evaluation, at what can be tomorrow. Before we start searching for whatever it is, we need to know what to look for and know what to look for means perceiving what we lack in our own home. After and from there, we move on to the second part that is to go looking what the market has available, within our needs (…) Having all this information in quantity, specifically detailed and organized, is fundamental and very important for us
Currently, Talent Spy is an extremely useful tool for the Sporting Clube de Portugal Scouting Department. This tool allows us to easily organize and with an appealing image all players that the department has referenced. Establishing a hierarchy with respect to the level of each player is also very advantageous, as is gather all in one platform, all the information deemed important for each player observed. Furthermore, it’s possible to establish, among all the scouts that work with us, a common ‘language’ for the analysis and observations.
