The International Sports Federation for Persons with Intellectual Disability (Inas) has partnered with technology specialists Sport:80 to launch an online membership and event management platform.
The project will see Inas adopt, what it claimed, is cutting-edge technology, which it is hoped will significantly improve the level of service it is able to provide its 78 member organisations.
It is also claimed that it will enable Inas to modernise internal processes due to the technology automating many management and administration tasks.
Nick Parr, executive director of Inas, spoke of his delight at being able to replace expensive paper-based systems with an affordable cloud-based platform that is said to provide access to real-time information.
"Each year we manage a programme of up to 14 World and Regional Championships," he said.
"Having this technology in place will significantly streamline the processes involved in managing these events.
"It will also provide real-time access to critical information for both Inas and event hosts, as well as delivering improved services to our member nations, athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers."
The technology being utilised by Inas, and a host of International Federations and national governing bodies, was originally developed by Sport:80 for use during the largest test event for the London 2012 Olympic Games - an International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup.
Sport:80 went on to further develop the technology to become an "all-encompassing sport management platform", which is now said to be making waves in the industry.
"As sports people first and foremost, our vision for the platform was to make a real difference, both in terms of simplifying and networking the core functions of sport business management and providing opportunities for sports organisations to grow and drive participation," said Gary Hargraves, chief executive of Sport:80.
"We’re delighted to see this happening with our clients and are looking forward to replicating this with Nick and the Inas team in years to come."
Sport:80 is billed as a "conglomerate of sports industry professionals and software developers that specialise in sport management technology".
Last week, the British-based company confirmed a partnership with the International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) to launch a cloud-based management platform which, it is hoped, will revolutionise the way in which it operates.
As well as the IWAS, Sport:80 has already worked within the Paralympic Movement, having announced a 10-year partnership with the Boccia International Sports Federation in 2014.
