STRI Group launches TurfSync – video

STRI Group has launched a new sports surface performance tracker – TurfSync.

TurfSync connects the team and players to the surface they are playing on, whilst providing stadium operators with important management data.

Its easy-to-use online interface allows the groundstaff, coaches, management and venue operators to view all aspects of the match-day playing surface and training facilities.

TurfSync also highlights sports surface trends, identifies risks and allows venue operators to solve problems before they occur, helping them achieve or maintain a world class standard playing surface and to make key decisions around usage schedules.

TurfSync is already being used by a number of professional football clubs including Hearts FC and Burnley FC and is being rolled out across a wide variety of sports including golf, horse racing, rugby union and Aussie Rules football.

STRI’s head of group development Andrew Brooker said:

TurfSync is an important system ensuring that sportsmen and women can perform at their very best on the highest quality surfaces across the world. Venue operators can access key data when organising multiple events across their facilities. We have developed TurfSync so it benefits a wide variety of stakeholders.

Hearts owner, CEO and chairwoman Ann Budge added:

TurfSync’s tracking system will allow the grounds team at Tynecastle to ensure that the surface is maintained at the highest standard.
