As a critical part of the club, the successful organisation of your team’s academy is vital.
Kit management is a crucial part of any academy’s operations – ordering the correct kit for each player taking into account home, away and training variations – as well as the players’ requirements for larger kit as they grow over the course of a season can be complicated, time consuming and costly. In order to avoid the cost of re-ordering kit during the course of the season, many clubs over-order at the beginning; however this often leaves them with large amounts of excess kit which is inefficient and expensive.
Ocean Dynamics has developed a kit management system that addresses these issues, enabling kit organisation and ordering to be completed with optimal efficiency. Based on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, this solution creates reporting that enables you to order the right amount of kit each season and avoid over ordering.
Flexible and scalable
This solution can be provided as a stand alone system or can form part of your existing finance and operations system.Flexible and scalable, it can grow as your club, academy and players do.
Ocean Dynamics has been working with a London based premier league club with an academy of over 300 players aged between 8-23 years old to implement our innovative and user-friendly kit management system, enabling managers to allocate kit to individual players whilst keeping track of stock levels, providing critical data to aid the ordering process for the following season. This allows them to only order the kit they need, maximising efficiency and minimising waste.
The solution provides:
A unique bin allocation for each academy player so that the kit manager can easily allocate kit to an individual, allowing them to keep track of how much kit has gone to each player.
Quick and easy identification of stock levels and requirements of different sizes for each age group within the academy.
Simple reporting on how much kit has been allocated to the team and how much is left in stock at the warehouse and at the training ground at any point during the season.
User-friendly front screen for the kit manager to easily allocate stock to each player. The Microsoft merchandise management system works behind the scenes to create the intelligence – but there is no complex front end screen for the kit manager to master.
