IT major Infosys in association with ATP, the governing body of men's professional tennis circuits, today announced the launch of a new 'PlayerZone' app and website.
The revamped PlayerZone, an extranet portal for ATP players, their support teams, coaches, and others in the ecosystem, allows users to engage with each other and access information across a wide range of operational aspects related to life on Tour, the company said in a release.
It said the PlayerZone is developed with best-in-class technology to be intuitive and more convenient, offering biometric login on the app. It also provides information on tournament entries and withdrawals, automated updates on match scheduling and results among other things.
The ATP is the governing body of the men's professional tennis circuits - the ATP World Tour, the ATP Challenger Tour and the ATP Champions Tour. "With the launch of this new app, we believe we have set a new benchmark in offering the best player extranet in sport, connecting our players, their agents, coaches, teams and family to the ATP World Tour wherever they might be, from any device of their choice," ATP Executive Chairman & President Chris Kermode said.
He said the ATP World Tour is a truly global business, taking place in over 30 countries across six continents, and with players from over 100 countries. Infosys said the new app will increase engagement with the next generation of players, provide a central portal of information as players' progress through different stages of their career, as well as offer a forum to engage with the players' support teams in a private and secure digital environment.
"As part of our partnership, we developed a joint vision for ATP to become one of the most innovative and digitalized sporting organizations in the world and we are excited to be enabling them in this time of change," Infosys President Rajesh Krishnamurthy said. KSU RA RC
