In-Depth Recruitment Analysis, Backed Up By Video

Establishing a player’s longer-term performance trends is vital when profiling potential targets. ProVision empowers you to conduct detailed analysis on players active in your key recruitment markets, informing your long, medium and short-term recruitment strategy.


Identify Underlying Player Insights to Inform Recruitment

Profile Recruitment Prospects In the Context of Your Game Model

Opta data from over 250 different men’s and women’s competitions can be interrogated in ProVision to assess viable player targets.

To ensure these players are profiled against KPIs suitable to your club’s playing philosophy, ProVision allows you to build your own personalised metrics relevant to each on-field role.

  • Assess and benchmark prospects relative to first-team regulars in your current squad
  • Build data equations incorporating multiple events, qualifiers and metrics
  • Generate bespoke metrics that take into account XY pitch coordinates and contextual match factors, such as the game state and the match clock


Interrogate Predictive Opta Vision Metrics

A wide range of AI metrics are integrated in ProVision, providing deeper insights which enable you to incorporate predictive analysis into your recruitment profiling.

  • Predictive metrics, including Expected Pass Completion (xP), Expected Threat (xThreat), Pressure Intensity and Line-Breaking Passes, provide deeper insight into a player’s passing performance
  • Expected Goals, Expected Assists and Carries can be filtered and displayed on exportable pitch map and radar templates
  • Stats Perform’s sequence framework enables analysts to compare a team’s approach, with and without the ball, using possession outputs and sequence path graphics
  • All metrics are linked to video, which can be viewed directly from events plotted on pitch maps


Build Your Own Data-Powered Dashboards

To enhance the way your insights are presented to decision makers across the club, ProVision allows you to build different dashboards, displaying customised data visualisations, for different use cases.

All visualisations displaying on these dashboards, together with your detailed data reports, can be exported from ProVision and shared with colleagues across your recruitment department.

  • Performance data from previous seasons can be benchmarked to add further context to a recruitment prospect’s current performance
  • Metrics can be filtered by multiple event, season, in-game and biographical criteria
  • All reports are saved in an online archive, enabling them to be re-run following each matchday and downloaded in both spreadsheet and Json formats


API Connectivity to Empower Your Data Scientists

As well as accessing data and video through the software, ProVision also supports external workflows via different APIs.​ Your data scientists can connect to access both play-by-play events and customised reports created in your platform.

  • ProVision’s API can automate the process of updating data in coding platforms, such as R and Python, as well as in visualisation tools including Tableau ​
  • The API’s fast connection allows your data scientists to pull back a full season of event data in less than a minute
  • An additional video API also means that you can create and stream video playlists externally
