As Official Technology Partner of the RBS 6 Nations, Accenture is once again bringing its digital expertise to the Championship with an enhanced version of the official mobile app.
The app covers the whole experience both on and off the field from pre-match build up with all the latest news, line ups and previews, through to experiencing the game live with play-by-play commentary. The app also provides post-match analysis including video highlights, reports and match play data. It also integrates social media channels allowing fans live interaction and all the match gossip.
Updated for 2014, Accenture aims to keep fans as close to the action as possible, with features that improve audience participation and interaction with the Championship. A number of analytical tools have been created to sit within the app to provide deeper insight for rugby fans, including:
Positional Battles: A live analytics tool which compares and then rates each player’s head-to-head performance statistics during a match to see who is winning their positional battle
Momentum Tracker: Provides a graphical overview of how two opposing teams compare in combined performance and score difference during a match. Updated live every 10 minutes during play.
Top Team: Shows a team constructed from the best players of all the teams based on their individual performance in a given timeframe, and will be available after each match weekend
Head-to-Head: Provides a head-to-head analysis of any two players selected
Positional Battles and Momentum Tracker are available to view during a match via alerts in the commentary.
