August 14, 2018 — As part of a longstanding partnership between SPORTLOGiQ and the Swedish Hockey League (SHL), SPORTLOGiQ will now be the league’s official data supplier effective the 2018-19 season.
As the SHL’s official data partner, SPORTLOGiQ will provide the league, its teams, broadcast partners, and sports betting partners access to its real-time advanced analytics. The SHL is the first league to take a bold approach to tech by infusing its advanced analytics system with artificial intelligence.

“We’re thrilled to partner with a league as progressive as the SHL,” said Craig Buntin, cofounder and CEO of SPORTLOGiQ. “There has been a lot of hype about what AI will bring to sport, so to see the league bring together its teams, broadcast media, and betting partners into one discussion is really exciting. Our player tracking and advanced storytelling tools will bring an unprecedented level of game insight to fans in Sweden and throughout the world. We’re entering a new era, and we couldn’t be happier to be doing so directly with the SHL.”

Under the terms of the multiyear and collaborative partnership between the two organisations, SPORTLOGiQ will supply a full suite of AI-powered analytics products and services. SPORTLOGiQ has rights to process and distribute real-time tracking and game data that will also be used by the SHL, its teams, partners, and fans.

SPORTLOGiQ has transformed the way teams and fans understand the game. Using standard broadcast feeds, it tracks and analyzes in-game player movement. Its advanced analytics engine then transforms the data into actionable insights for teams, automated stories for broadcast media, and in-depth insights for sports betting.

“Our partnership with SPORTLOGiQ presents a very exciting opportunity for us, our teams and SHL hockey fans. They are the disruptive force the industry has been waiting for,” said Jörgen Lindgren, CEO of the SHL. “We have always been a forward-thinking organization that prioritizes investing in technology to remain ahead of the curve. We’re thrilled to have SPORTLOGiQ as our official data provider.”

The SHL kicks off its 2018-19 season on September 15th.

The number of AGCs operating on TITO will increase by 30 percent within a year, according to GeWeTe Sales Manager for UK and Ireland, Mark Edmundson. The projections were made following feedback from customers attending ACOS where the Gauselmann owned company enjoyed a successful show.

“A lot of the conversations that we had with customers at ACOS revolved around TITO with operators looking to increase significantly their volume of TITO enabled machines.” he stated. “Such is the success of TITO and the level of player acceptance that we can safely expect to see the number of AGCs using the system to increase by at least 30 percent by Q4 2020.”

MARS – the Machine Administration Reconciliation System, which was developed by the Gauselmann Group is helping to accelerate the take-up of TITO. Edmundson confirmed: “Although there are a number of TITO and data capture systems on the market, there isn’t a single system that offers all of the features that are available on MARS which is being constantly updated offering enhanced efficiency and improved security.”

Edmundson has also identified a greater emphasis being placed on aesthetics as well as functionality. “Many stand visitors highlighted the contemporary design of our Cash Recycler Premium, which made its UK debut at ACOS” he said. “I think what we are seeing is a need for functional products to also look the part in order to complement the greater emphasis that’s being placed on the design, layout and finish of AGCs, FECs and Bingo Clubs. Products, all products, need to complement and not detract from the environment in which they are sited. Operators are making significant investments to deliver a contemporary consumer experience which is consistent across the board.”
