The Checkd Development business was formed by the group in 2019. The team brings together a wealth of knowledge across sports media and technology, with a focus on user experience and creating innovative products for both our partners and the customers on our own platforms. The development team has a long track record of building cutting-edge products using both web and native technologies. We are passionate about sports and suitably nerdy about technology, this is combined with a desire to provide our users with products that enrich their experience while following sports.
The Checkd Dev team has been responsible for a host of high profile native apps since the inception of the Apple App Store and Google Play Stores. The team has worked across a range of industries with an array of media owners and publishers, but have been focused on developing technology within the Betting & Gaming industry over recent years.
The teams abilities can be seen in the recently launched FA Betting Hub native apps, where our expertise around building slick, reliable and easy to use mobile apps is clearly on show. For more info on FA Betting Hub, you can download it from the Apple & Google App Stores
The Checkd Dev team are well underway to overhauling the whole Checkd Group suite of mobile apps and websites and have a roadmap of improvements and new features to be introduced to our audiences over the upcoming packed out sporting calendar.
Along with re-developing the Odds platform which all Checkd Media sites utilise for the latest prices from the UKs leading bookmakers, the team has developed the experience further by uniquely combining the range of bookmaker offers alognside the latest and most relevant statistical data.
Recently introducing API betting technology to the Checkd Group platform has taken the integration with our premium partners, along with the customer experience, to another level.
Checkd Dev has also introduced a suite of Fantasy Sports technology and experience, along with a background of building Free To Play prediction games for Media owners and Bookmaker partners.
FA Fantasy Hub represents the Groups first own direct to consumer classic Fantasy Football product utilising the platform. Since 2010, the technology has supported a range of Fantasy games on web and mobile across a host of leagues and competitors and in multiple languages, the most notable of which was the popular Fantasy iTeam product which garnered over 1m downloads.
As well as the classic version of the game, the team has developed a unique 90 min Fantasy game aimed at the second screen audience who don’t have the time and patience to play season long.
Second screen engagement has become extremely popular and ubiquitous over recent years with sports fans, and even more so in times where people cannot attend the live matches. Checkd Dev have been working with various partners with the aim of giving the fans something extra to engage with, and think about, while enjoying their favourite sports.
From a crowd-sourced Boxing Scorecard to an In-Play Match Centre that pushes the latest tips based on statistical information and form, the domain is something where the Group can see a host of new opportunities to capitalise on in the future.
“The addition of Checkd Dev to the Group has opened up a new world of opportunities for our partners to interact with the Checkd Media audiences. We’ve also seen how we can help clients in terms of innovation and agile development by working with them on a more collaborative level utilising our technical expertise”- Adam Patton, Managing Director of Checkd Dev
