Sprinting into the New Year!

We hope that you had a wonderful 2015 and are starting the new year off right! We are thrilled about upcoming opportunities this year, but first want to reflect on some highlights from the past year:
Most importantly DATA!!!
During 2015 Bquipped collected roughly 150k unique player and equipment data points from athletes covering 38 states across the United States and 17 countries around the globe. Thank you to the athletes across field hockey and lacrosse who participated in our surveys, which helped to build and improve our app technology.  We are always striving to help you find the best sports equipment for your game.  Thank you!
England Hockey News
Bquipped had the privilege of being a guest of England Hockey at the 

EuroHockey Championships this past August in London.  A massive Congratulations to England for taking the crown in overtime penalties vs. the Dutch!  It was truly a game for the records and England goalkeeper Maddie Hinch had an unprecedented performance.  Colleen even scored the greatest photobomb of all time with the England Head Coach Danny Kerry! (Televised Live on BBC!)

Game highlights can be viewed here on YouTube

Bquipped takes California
Our 2nd year rocking it at CalCup! Bquipped once again helped athletes find the right field hockey stick and heard firsthand from players about their equipment. Thank you CalCup for another great year!
Improving how we help
the Sports Equipment Industry

Bquipped launched its data analytics and consulting solution based on market demand in 2015! Brands, retailers and organizations want to better know their customers and athletes, and we have the tools, methodologies, and specialized knowledge to help.  

Bquipped's customized survey tool helped the industry gain insight into players' wants and needs at key tournaments, camps, and clinics. Get in touch with Colleen Connors 
(colleen.connors@bquipped.com) to learn more about how we can help you in 2016.

3 Minutes and Counting!

In November, Bquipped attended the 15th annual Babson Rocket Pitch at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. Newcomer to the Bquipped team, Olivia Kelley (Strategic Partnerships and Business Development, Lacrosse) pitched to a packed room of students, faculty, angel investors, venture capitalists and, of course, entrepreneurs. Clearly, Bquipped stood out among other tech/mobile/web start-ups as we earned a shout-out from Network World Online in their article: Babson Rocket Pitch: A new generation of tech entrepreneurs thinks big. Thanks @networkworld!

What does it mean to access Bquipped's Software as a Service (SaaS)?
There's a lot of tech language these days so we wanted to take a moment to shed some light on one of the awesome terms you might see floating around: SaaS (Software as a Service).  Bquipped's proprietary stick matching application is a SaaS tool.  This means retailers, brands, clubs, and other sports organizations can host their own version of Bquipped's equipment finder on their website or in their store!  Updates to equipment data, Bquipped's proprietary algorithm, and equipment matches are real-time on-demand, and inventory is tailored to the organization. Bquipped manages everything centrally so you, the client, don't need to worry.  We can even build equipment finder tools that are specifically customized to your needs. For more information, contact Nicola Palmer (nicola.palmer@bquipped.com).

SaaS Options
