White Label Activity Finder Plugin
Activity Finder powered by open-data
What we help to solve
In cities across the country there are thousands of physical activity sessions and leisure facilities available right now. The problem is that physical activity sessions and leisure facilities are managed by a myriad of different individuals and organisations that all promote their leisure opportunities in very different ways. This makes it extremely difficult for consumers to discover information relating to all of the leisure opportunities that are available to them in their local area, which creates a significant barrier to participation.
How we solve it
In order to address this problem we have developed an activity finder that utilises open-data to present all physical activity sessions and leisure facilities from multiple providers to consumers via a simple and intuitive web page plugin. This means that when a consumer searches for the activity type of ‘football’, they will be shown detailed information in relation to organised football sessions, football pitches within local parks, and football pitches that can be hired within a leisure centre. What’s more, our product can be integrated into any existing website to ensure a simple and inexpensive integration process for our clients.
What we offer
The Kinetic Insight Activity Finder Plugin integrates simply with your existing website in order to allow consumers to search for any physical activity sessions and leisure facilities that are available via open-data. Our clients can specify the data sources that the activity finder will utilise, which will allow you to decide whether to display leisure opportunity data from all providers or specific providers only.
The activity finder will show results to consumers that contain the following:
- Name of activity
- Cost of activity
- Location of activity (including details of how to get to the location)
- Date and time of activity
- The number of spaces available for the activity
- Session description
- Search results are shown on a map and in a list
- Search results can be filtered on by days of the week, time, activity type, age range, and price
- Option to book sessions where available
The mockup below shows how this could look when implemented into the website of an London Borough, however, we are happy to tailor the final design of the activity finder to a client's specific requirements. As an example of our work in this area, please click here to view an activity finder that we created for Newcastle City Council that integrates with our session management and participation tracking solution, Kinetic Insight Pro.
Who is this product aimed at?
This product is aimed at both public sector and private sector organisations that wish to simplify the process of discovering and booking physical activity sessions and leisure facilities for consumers.
What we're looking for
We're looking to engage with potential new clients that require help aggregating open-data to display on their existing website for the benefit of all of their consumers. This will result in breaking down some of the barriers that exist to prevent people becoming more active, more often.
Data we use
The Kinetic Insight Activity Finder Plugin utilises the imin Physical Activity Availability API to pull open-data for activity sessions and leisure facilities. Our product also links directly with our session management and participation tracking tool, Kinetic Insight Pro.
Data we create
The Kinetic Insight Activity Finder Plugin generates participation data relating to frequency of participation, participation by activity type, participation by venue etc. There is also scope to allow consumers to create user accounts that will be setup to streamline the checkout process where online payments are required.
Who we work with
We work with some of the largest public sector organisations across the UK including Manchester City Council, Birmingham City Council, Newcastle City Council, Glasgow City Council, and Dundee City Council. Our work within these local authorities has allowed us to create an environment of shared ideas and shared working across all authorities with reciprocal benefits for all involved. As an example of this, our solutions have been used by these organisations to revolutionise their session management and participation data collection for physical activity programmes including This Girl Can, ParkLives and Community Games. We continually liaise with our clients to ensure we can continue to evolve our solutions to meet their ever changing requirements.Testimonials from our clients are available on request.
