Caribbean software pioneer launches Match Dominator for football fans
World Cup football followers have a new way of sharing match predictions with friends and fellow fans.
Match Dominator, a new mobile app from Teleios Systems, lets fans earn points and bragging rights by predicting the winners and the scores of FIFA 2014 World Cup matches while interacting with other players across the globe.
“The Teleios family loves football and we’ve long planned to get more heavily involved in mobile application development. The 2014 World Cup tournament presented a wonderful opportunity to pursue our business goals and our passion at the same time,” said Kevin Khelawan, chief operating officer for Teleios Systems.
“The Match Dominator app allows users to enhance their World Cup experience by making predictions for the different matches and sharing them with fellow fans around the world. Users of the app can gain points based on the accuracy of their predictions. They can also earn badges and bragging rights as they move up the leaderboard.”
The Match Dominator app also allows users to receive alerts when their favourite teams are playing. In addition, users can view real-time match updates and enter live chat sessions with other users.
Match Dominator already has a global user base. The app has been downloaded across the Caribbean, North America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
"We've been pleasantly surprised by how many people are enjoying the app. It's been pulling together family, friends and co-workers to challenge each other in predictions,” Khelawan added.
“Match Dominator was built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and took approximately three months to build. Developing the app was a learning process for the whole team, particularly for the iOS as this was a new platform for us," said Keisha Waithe, one of the lead developers on the Match Dominator project.
Teleios, which began in an annex of the home of one of the cofounders in 1996, now has over 40 employees. The company recently won the Microsoft 2014 YouthSpark Citizenship Award for its Teleios Code Jam app development initiative, beating out a global field of top Microsoft partners.
Khelawan says “we've always been committed to delivering innovative software solutions. Mobile apps is a natural progression for us and Mobile Dominator is just the start”
