Kitman Labs Announces Deal with Legendary Irish Hurling County, Kilkenny
First Hurling Team in the Gaelic Athletic Association to Deploy iP: Intelligence Platform ; Technology to Launch with Men's Senior Squad
By: Kitman Labs
As the 36x winner of the All-Ireland Championship, 75x winner of the provincial Leinster Championship and 19x winner of the National Hurling League, Kilkenny is indisputably the most successful county team at the senior level in the history of the game. The Intelligence Platform is being deployed across the Men's Senior Squad. The platform will serve as the singular operating system for the Organization - eliminating data and information silos, enabling cross-Departmental communication, supporting informed, data-led decision-making and providing a comprehensive, real-time view of every player in the squad.
"The Intelligence Platform has been designed to unify data, people and processes to support informed decision-making, streamline operations and ultimately, yield the action plan necessary to achieve critical performance outcomes," said Stephen Smith, CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs. "One of the key benefits of iP is the ability to support real-time collaboration and transparency across all Departments - driving increased efficiency off the pitch to ensure more time for development on the pitch. And it goes without saying, that as a company founded in Ireland, I personally take great pride in officially welcoming our first GAA team to the Kitman Labs family."
"While Kilkenny has an established track record of success, it's incumbent on us to ensure we continue to innovate to drive performance. Part of that strategy will be working with Kitman Labs to make sure we have the platform in place to support cross-functional communication and collaboration and best-in-class data and analytics capabilities to unlock specific operating and performance goals," said Derek Lyng, Kilkenny Senior Hurling Manager.
"Kitman labs will enable team management, coaches and their squads to aspire to better results through the power of performance data, streamlined coordination and transparent communication"
Kitman Labs has an established track record of working with top leagues, teams and athletes across a variety of sports, including soccer, basketball, rugby, and American football. The Kilkenny Senior County Team represents the first Kitman Labs client in Hurling.
