Vancouver, Canada June 18, 2021
Interpodia, the leader in sport management technology software, today announced a new partnership with the global governing body International Functional Fitness Federation (iF3) for over 50 National Sporting Federation affiliates. Interpodia Technology is looking forward to assisting iF3 and its national affiliate federations grow the sport and assist it in achieving its strategic goals. Rupert May, Chief Financial Officer, commented, “We are really excited to work with the progressive global team at iF3. It’s an honor to partner with iF3 as they accelerate their mission to establish functional fitness as an Olympic sport.”
True to its mission, iF3 is committed to growing functional fitness around the globe by developing a governance structure that provides rules, safety standards, and competitive opportunities for athletes. Throughout the pandemic, executives at iF3 saw an opportunity to improve their efficiency of membership management with online tools and enhanced transparency across their national organizations and affiliated clubs and teams.
After meeting with Interpodia to discuss iF3’s current obstacles, it was clear to both parties that by upgrading iF3’s registration and affiliation system, they could save valuable time and money that could be otherwise spent on their greater goals.
There were many opportunities for optimizing the processes and saving costs, their primary requirements being…
- A scalable and flexible digital membership platform that supported complex configurations and currencies.
- The ability to offer integrated registration to the national affiliates right down to the individual club in each country, supported by split payments
- Ability to pull information and communicate with the parent or guardian of each athlete, coach, official, volunteer or others in an oversight role.
- Ensure that agreement, declarations, and waivers are consistently handled & stored for future potential retrieval
- Ensure standardized annual national affiliation applications and payments for the efficient management and regulation of the sport
…with many more secondary requirements. So we got started on putting together what would become a digital backbone to meet all of these requirements.
Interpodia provides sporting organizations with flexible technology that is not seen elsewhere. Made up of several modules seen above, these will be highly configured to IF3’s specific needs. Streamlining processes through automation and integration, Interpodia’s sport-specific platform will integrate every level of the sport to the international federation, from clubs and events to national bodies, including elite athletes. Interpodia’s solutions for international federations include high-performance athlete management, education, and certification tracking, coach licensing, and more to help minimize risk within the sport. Administrative jobs that would usually be tedious are made simple through the integrations with Learning Management Systems, Competition Management Systems, Criminal Background Checks, and Merchandise Suppliers. Interpodia is working hard to ensure iF3’s sees improved efficiency, streamlined processes, enhanced user experience, and a proven reduction of risk in the next six months.
”Running an international federation is a tough job and we needed a partner that could ease our burden when it comes to administration. From the first time we met with Interpodia, we know they could deliver what we need. We’re really looking forward to grow with them alongside us and I’m sure this will be a successful partnership for many years”.
