Gameplan Technology are excited to launch a new software that will help stadiums and event venues better manage their suppliers and internal personnel. 

Duncan Mitchell, co-founder of TempTribe, and Tom Nimmo, co-founder of Hassle/Helpling, have launched Gameplan this week, after 18 months’ development in stealth mode. 

Gameplan is a simple, powerful, management software that helps the world’s leading sports stadiums and event venues to run seamlessly. 

It comprises a suite of organisational tools that enables large operators such as Facilities Management Companies (FMCs) to streamline their processes in areas such as assigning work to suppliers, communications, access control, real-time job information, time and attendance, forecasting and analytics. 

Duncan commented: “Tom and I identified an opportunity to create some real value for places like sports stadiums, amongst others. We noticed that in many cases these world-class attractions were being managed on outdated platforms. Often, the onsite teams were resorting to things like Excel or text messaging for almost everything.

“We estimate that these businesses are losing millions each year from staff churn, time theft, inaccurate billing, poor time and attendance processes, lack of forecasting ability and so on. We’re really excited to be addressing many of these problems for them in a space we love working in.”

The founders bring considerable sector-specific experience to the table. Tom grew Hassle.com’s cleaning offering across Europe before the team sold the company to German-based Helping for €32 million. Duncan, on the other hand, has developed TempTribe into a market-leader in the hospitality staffing space over the past 12 years. 

Currently, they are piloting Gameplan in a few selected UK stadiums but have already had international interest for the platform. They are currently in conversations to expand into countries including the US and Australia very soon.
