The Boccia International Sports Federation (BISFed) has launched a new competition management system, which has been developed by its "technology partner" Sport:80.
Over the last 18 months the two organisations have been working to develop a bespoke competition management system (BCMS) to assist event organisers and technical officials in the managing of events.
Although tests have been carried out at various events over the last 18 months, the BISFed 2017 European Regional Open is the first tournament to use the system for a whole tournament.
The competition is currently taking place in Sant Cugat del Vallès in Catalonia.
The BCMS allows the technical delegate, head referee and referees to manage the schedule, input live scores and display results.
The system collects the entries and feeds the entry data directly into the BCMS.
"The new BCMS will allow the Boccia family to follow competitions more closely," said BISFed operations manager Dom Tremblay.
"The scores will populate as they are entered by the scorers meaning we can follow all of the action as it happens from the event wherever we are."
In the future the system will be further developed to allow updates to the world rankings.
Sports technology company Sport:80 signed a 10-year partnership agreement with BISFed in 2014.
Sport:80, which has offices in London and Sheffield, has already got links with Paralympic sport and their partners include BISFed, the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) and the International Federation for Sport for Para-Athletes with an Intellectual Disability (Inas).
