Officially called KPS Skra Bełchatów SA is a Polish volleyball club based in Bełchatów, founded in 1957. Skra Bełchatów has nine Polish Championship gold medals in its collection, seven Polish Cup triumphs and four Polish Super Cup wins, making it the most successful volleyball club of the 21st century in the country.

Challenge

Marketing director of Skra Bełchatów came to us with an idea for a mobile app as he was familiar with the app we made for Widzew. Being aware that in the sports industry this is an effective marketing channel and a common way to keep in touch with club's fans, they decided to build their own app. It allows users to easily and quickly find information about their favourite team.

With the app, fans can:

  • keep up to date with daily news from the club, matches schedule and the current league table
  • be always informed about on-going matches, their progress and results - via push notifications
  • get to know the team better through pictures, videos and information about each player
  • buy club merchandise
  • experience the excitement of a match via a photo gallery and videos

A particularly challenging part of this project was the short deadline and creating a server application which is a proxy of several data sources used by the application. It required us to coordinate the work of several independent suppliers.

Project's scope

We started the cooperation with workshops which helped us to define the target design and features of the application. The purpose of the app was mainly to transform the data and structure of the website into a convenient mobile app. Our team was responsible for developing mobile apps (both Android and iOS using Flutter), UI and UX design development and launching the app on mobile stores. 

Solution

Technology stack:

To reduce development costs, we advised and ended up developing the app using Flutter because cross-platform solutions are ideal for this purpose. We continue to support and maintain the app.

Our team:

  • 2 Flutter developers
  • 1 QA tester
  • 1 UI designer
  • 1 Project Manager

 

Communication:

During the entire cooperation, we had transparent communication with our Partner. The Skra Bełchatów team had full access to the workspace in Jira and a dedicated channel for daily communication with our specialists on Slack and had video calls on Google Meets. 

Together with our Partner, we analyse every new idea and improvement. We advise at every level and keep the product up to date. 

What our Partner says about us

Tomasz Koprowski Marketing Director at Skra Bełchatów
On the sports market, mobile applications are not a new solution for communicating with fans. However, it is rare for a service provider to create a fully dedicated product for a club, which is exactly what happened in case of this project. An experienced team cooperated with a strong sports brand and the result is an effective marketing tool.
