We’ve been busy doing some minor changes to Sportzware Central (Fiba Organizer for basketball users) and have now released SWC 7.2.
We are not making a huge song and dance about this release, but it does manage some new functionality for basketball particularly well and there are some minor bug fixes too.
The core reason for this release is to provide generally the synchronisation functionality for FIBA LiveStats and Stadium Scoring. We have just taken away a huge amount of work for organisations downloading and uploading files. Many of the Leagues who use FIBA LiveStats or Stadium Scoring have been using our beta code releases so this has been well tested prior to release. We appreciate the huge amount of help and feedback we have received from our users, particularly Melbourne East and Kilsyth Basketball Associations, who have been trailblazing with the use of stadium scoring.
We have four new scoresheets for basketball in 7.2, these scoresheets allow the competition manager to restrict how many players appear on the scoresheet and also allow you to force the scoresheet to print only the names of players who still have a valid registration. More information on these scoresheets will come directly from basketball governing bodies.
And finally, we have managed some bug fixes. You can click here to see the a more detailed list of bugs which have been repaired in this release.
You might be using Version 7.0 of SWC successfully at the moment and might like to wait a couple of weeks before you upgrade. If that is the case then please do so. Alternately, you might have checked our release notes and found you really do want to take advantage of some of the changes.
As always, if you have any questions about any functionality in SWC, head to our support wiki http://support.sportingpulse.com/index.php/Sportzware_Central.

We've been blogging and posting messages for a long time in many formats. However, we generally have published news on releases to you, as opposed to giving you insights about our company, our people and our thoughts on our next steps.
We do great things at SportingPulse and have grown year-on-year at around 40% for the last 10 years. We have a committed development team and have helped revolutionise sports administration from a paper-based culture to a desktop application and now, a fully online way to manage your sport and communicate with your members. And - around 2 million people per month drive up to 50 million page views of the resultant stats, news and events.
Today SportingPulse has moved from the sports mecca of the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia to a home right alongside one of the world's great sporting arenas - the MCG (check the photo out the window from my phone). It seems appropriate that with this change, we will begin to up the ante on our communication back to you.
