ECB records a win with Telesens software services contract

Telesens and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are pleased to announce an agreement for support and development of the ECB’s ‘Play-Cricket’ service.

The ECB is the governing body for cricket in England and Wales. Play-Cricket is the ECB’s on-line cricket network for Clubs, Leagues, Cup Competitions and County Boards. It is the official source of all information and statistics on club cricket for all cricketers and supporters and registers over 120 million page visits a year.

The ECB were faced with a resourcing challenge — to sustain a high-quality software service that is both specialist in the Play-Cricket application and responsive to the seasonal fluctuations of the sporting business.

The Telesens nearshoring business model has allowed it to achieve all of the above, and at a cost that has delighted the ECB. Furthermore, Telesens relevant experience on projects such as the ING New York –°ity Marathon portal has ensured that the team was effective from day one.

“The ECB& offshoring initiative has proved successful. Telesens has proved highly responsive and technically strong and their project communications have been excellent. I look forward to partnering with Telesens in the future evolution of Play-Cricket”

commented Chris Hoad, ECB Head of IT.

“We are pleased to add such a prestigious organization as the ECB to our expanding sports and leisure client base. We are proud of the quality of our resource and delighted with the opportunity to prove ourselves”,

said Hugh Christey, Telesens Sales Director.
