Cham/Switzerland, 28 November 2016. The Swiss Fintech company MUUME and Deutsche Sportausweis GmbH are cooperating. One goal is to digitise the physical sports ID by using the MUUME technology and to establish a cross-channel service, including payment for German sports.
The partnership will expand the German sports / club identification with multifaceted MUUME solutions. Among other things, a separate smartphone app should make purchases possible at cooperating businesses or also serve digital services in the club environment, such as at local partners or sports clubs. The advantages for sports clubs and associations are obvious: The risks of cash handling, which is personnel-intensive and frequently leads to non-transparent invoices, is consistently eliminated – whether in the clubhouse, at restaurants, for the sale of entry tickets, token coins or settling course or court fees. In addition, the problem of cash theft can be significantly reduced. Another field of application is the team wallet with which teams can collect money, such as participation fees, teamwork contributions or donations.
The goal of the cooperation is to establish the joint services gradually as a standard of German sports for the about 1,450 sports associations, about 90,000 sports clubs and over 27 million memberships as well as the associated operations and sports facilities.
Deutsche Sportausweis GmbH is the exclusive operator of the system "DOSB German Sports ID", the official national identification system of the German Olympic Sports Federation, of state sports associations and top associations. It harmonises cross-club and cross-association membership numbers and creates a uniform digital platform for the efficient administration and synergetic cooperation between clubs and associations.
"Thanks to the close cooperation with MUUME, we can further expand the digital application areas, which opens up new opportunities for clubs and their members as well as the sports associations as regards administration and sports organisation", says Stephan Penz, CEO of DSA.
"The German sports ID is the central document of sports in all of Germany. We would like to give the ID even more meaning and contribute digital functions that provide real added value for all ID holders. I look forward to working together and implementing the many ideas that we have developed for and with DSA", says Marco Samek, CEO of MUUME.
