Technology products: our proprietary software and data platforms allow clients to connect multiple data sources and develop actionable insights and intelligence, driving strategic decision making throughout their business.

Our product suite is made up of a number of client facing SaaS offers which use data derived from multiple sources e.g. leisure management systems, wearable technology, community programming, major sporting event engagement, and healthcare providers. Connecting and standardising this data positions 4global uniquely in the provision of the following services:

• Predict the likely outcomes of significant investment in sport and physical activity programmes at a local and national level
• Benchmark the impact of new sports and activity investments
• Analyse the actual behaviours of citizens and how they participate (or not) in sport and activity programmes
• Target certain citizens to maximise the impact of specific programmes nationally or at a granular grass roots level

• Work with our clients to predict what will drive participation
