Introducing Virtual Scout

In recent times, with the increasing availability of technology and the advent of Coronavirus, the traditional approaches to scouting have changed. Whilst live scouting still plays an important part in the recruitment process, new methods are becoming available to reduce the number of live scouting trips and to save time and money.

Therefore, the time is right for us to launch our Virtual Scout initiative in collaboration with Total Football Analysis.

The Concept:

Virtual Scout is a high quality, low cost, time saving scouting service. We replicate the reporting phase of an on-site scout but with bandwidth to handle multiple request with unrivalled turnaround time.

We help to expand the resources at a club or agency’s disposal at a fraction of the usual cost. Our service, provides independent, honest assessment of players from experienced technical scouts within both the men’s and the women’s game.

The Methodology – Eyes + Data:

All our video scouts have worked within the professional game. Our video scouting team also work within a framework which is understandable and simple, based on giving key information across each game phase and watching each player extensively. This way, we have a standardised and balanced approach whilst giving scouts the freedom to give their independent opinion about a potential transfer target for your team.

We support this framework with our proven data models, enabling us to present the underlying performance of potential targets and identify similar players to the one of interest in every corner of the world. We use position-specific data profiles to help show strengths and weaknesses of players in relation to the skillsets required for their role. We also focus our approach on utilising team strength models to present data relevant to the level the player is playing at and his potential in the future.

The Delivery:

Clients request and receive their reports through our dedicated WhatsApp channel. We complete all reports within 48 hours (usually faster) and deliver in PDF format to ensure compatibility across all systems.
