efficialtec launches extraordinary software for referees and sport officials
July 31, 2019

The newly launched efficialtec online referee and officials management solution is offering a unique cloud-based platform for any sporting organisation looking for a software to manage and roster their officials.

efficialtec Chief Executive and co-founder, Jack Taylor explains “we are thrilled to be live with our new platform after many months of planning, building, testing and rebuilding.

“We feel efficialtec will fill a large gap in the market for sporting clubs and organisations looking for a simple way to manage, pay and communicate with all officials.”

Developed by officials, for officials, and piloted with organisations around Australia, efficialtec offers a range of features including: official scheduling and allocation; performance reporting on officials; generate officials payment reports; capture official availability and in-app live support for all users.

efficialtec Chief Technology Officer and co-founder Mitchell Hudson adds “we have worked closely with a number of organisations who expressed their interest in the software we were building.

“This has helped us to ensure we have created a platform that boasts features that are both unique but essential in the management of officials for sports associations and organisations.”

Hudson and Taylor are both elite referees within the basketball community and have seen firsthand the system gap in administering officials.

Their commitment to building a product that is both efficient and effective for organisations is shown by working closely with a number of different sporting codes and organisations so that this platform becomes the most comprehensive official management solution in Australia.

The always evolving efficialtec platform is simple but powerful and will save both administrators and officials a lot of time and stress. It is also competitively priced for organisations on a friendly Price Per User pricing model.
