Playven joins TIA

May 3, 2017

“The software as a service industry has been growing at a very rapid pace,” says TIA Executive Director Jolyn de Boer. “In tennis, there are now many companies that offer business solutions, including software platforms designed for tennis providers and facilities. Our goal and opportunity is to research and highlight these companies and services so facilities and providers can determine which of these best fit their needs to improve their operations and their members’ experiences, while saving them time and money in the process.”

Approved TIA SaaS Business Partners, such as Playven, will become part of the family of TIA Recommended Software and Business Solutions, and also receive membership benefits and services to help the facilities, retailers and providers using their specific technology product. The TIA maintains a network of thousands of facilities, retailers and tennis businesses that can utilize SaaS products in their daily operations.
