Unisys In Sports
Since 1980, Unisys has supplied scoring systems for many of the world's top golf championships, including the U.S. Open and the British Open. The ruling bodies of golf, the United States Golf Association and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, depend on Unisys for their major championship scoring services.
It's not only golf, however, in which Unisys leads the field. Unisys has provided timing, scoring, media information and accreditation services for auto and motorcycle racing and rugby, and has systems available to provide information services for athletics (track and field), marathons, swimming, cycling, field hockey and soccer.
Almost every week, Unisys employees work side-by-side with event organizers somewhere in the world.
Unisys involvement in sports provides the opportunity to demonstrate excellent technical capabilities, both software and hardware, and the tenacity of Unisys multi-disciplined team.
In the simplest of terms, a major sporting event has all of the information technology demands involved in running a large business or government agency. Action is measured in split seconds and the results must be processed instantly, accurately and distributed immediately to a worldwide audience of fans.
Businesses have the same crucial requirements: to get information fast, accurately and in a format that is useful for decision-making. Furthermore, the often unpredictable and always diverse conditions of our sporting venues parallel the daily happenings of the electronic business world.
Through year-round sports involvement, Unisys demonstrates the creativity, tenacity, and technical excellence of its people, services, and solutions.
