Rosterfy has confirmed its upward trajectory at this week’s 2019 Australia and New Zealand Sports Technology Awards, where the workforce management platform won the ‘Fast Growth’ and 'Sports Technology Management' gongs.
The ANZSTA Awards, staged annually in Melbourne, celebrates excellence in data, digital and technology across the sports, media and entertainment sectors.
After being shortlisted at last year’s inaugural ANZSTA Awards in the ‘Sports Management Technology’ category, Rosterfy has gone one better in 2019 and taken home the prestigious ‘Fast Growth’ and ‘Sports Management Technology’ awards at this week’s ceremony.
Rosterfy co-founder and managing director, Bennett Merriman, congratulated fellow ‘Fast Growth’ finalists, including KORE Software, SportsTG (Stack Sports), GreenDesk, TidyHQ and InteractSport.
“It's very humbling to receive this award tonight, particular given the calibre of the other finalists. To even see our company name in the same category was a massive thrill – we have a huge amount of respect for everyone in this room within the sports-tech ecosystem,”
The ‘Fast Growth’ win recognises Rosterfy’s global growth – the company now has staff and clients on four continents and works on volunteer and workforce management with prestigious international events such as the 2019 Cricket World Cup, Ironman, Expo 2020 Dubai, Super Bowl LIII and Spartan Race.
“While international expansion has many challenges & sleepless nights, the opportunities it has opened us up to as a business and personally definitely could not be replicated in many other jobs around,” he said.
Merriman also paid tribute to co-founders Chris Grant and Shannan Gove, the wider Rosterfy team and the ANZSTA Award organisers.
“Chris, Shannon and the wider Rosterfy team have always shared the vision for Rosterfy to be the best workforce management platform globally by 2025. While we have a long way to go, we are very proud of the progress and recognition that this award brings,” he said.
