Innovative Sports Strategies (ISS) is an emerging solutions provider in the sports industry. ISS presents clients with results that increase business efficiency and improve the quality of information available to key decision-makers. This is accomplished through its core competencies of developing creative and effective methods to carry out internal processes; offering advanced and detailed analysis of data sets; and implementing secure, robust, intuitive, and aesthetically-pleasing web-based applications.
Prior to the official company launch in May of 2007, ISS worked directly with college athletic departments and professional sports teams to improve information and workflow by building customized financial spreadsheets. As interest in these solutions grew, development began on Elevation®, a financial planning and reporting tool designed to address the unique financial structure of sports organizations.
At the start of 2009, Elevation was launched with the Budget & Forecasting module for college athletic departments to manage the budget development process, complete long-term financial planning, and monitor trend analysis information. One year later, ISS rolled out Accounting Integration, a module featuring the ability for athletic departments to import data from any university accounting system with automated budget status reporting. The third module, Financial Reporting, was deployed in December of 2011, to streamline the process for assembling NCAA/EADA deliverables and other required reports.
Today, Business Managers and CFOs across the country are involved in the continued evolution of Elevation. This software is driven by the feedback of these current and future users. Beyond Elevation, ISS utilizes its rare combination of sports industry knowledge, analytical skills, and technological expertise to meet different needs.
