An app to simplify the process of repairing, maintaining and managing multi-sports assets worldwide has had global success after launching in April this year.
Passport365 is a mobile application that has been developed over the last two years, thanks to the drive and determination of Garry Martin, Managing Director of sports facilities maintenance company Replay Maintenance.
The innovative app had early success in the UK, enabling grounds maintenance teams to book in jobs, record their daily activity and upload images from the sites they manage, which can be viewed by asset managers in head offices across the globe in real time.
Tuff Group Holding Pty Ltd heard about the app soon after its launch and after trialling the software was immediately impressed by its potential benefit to his company, which specialises in the design, construction, installation and maintenance of synthetic grass and all forms of sport and recreation surfaces across Australia and New Zealand.
In September, Tuff Group Holding Pty Ltd signed a six-figure deal for the Australian and New Zealand rights for exclusive use of the app.
Garry Martin said: “It’s been a hectic 12 months for Passport365, having launched for global sale in April this year.
“Our early adopters have given us amazing feedback and we’re now supplying the software to clients who are managing everything from single-use sports facilities all the way up to those running hundreds of surfaces across the UK and global companies working with synthetic grass in a number of different settings.
“Having all of the information about any one site, in one place and accessible on the go will help teams manage the assets they install and service and will eliminate the need for paperwork – halving administration time and connecting teams to their customers for the lifetime of the surfaces.
“Passport365 allows everyone working on or managing a site to be able to view, update, share and collate reports from the app either through their phone or on their desktop and will display in real time through the bespoke portal application or on mobile if they are away from their desk.
“Most importantly, app users can check on each of their sites or team members while they’re hundreds of miles away at head office or even in another country.”
The application, which can be customised with individual client branding, boasts a reporting system, making data, statistics and images available at the touch of a button and eliminates the need for storing physical paperwork.
