Jean-Manuel TOCHE, Marketing & Sales Manager (France / Spain / Italy) SETTEO, the first social network / platform dedicated exclusively to racket sports, reviews the evolution of SETTEO and the services offered to the club.
FB: Jean-Manuel, you are in charge of the development of Setteo in France, Spain and Italy. In the market Padel, we have noticed in recent months that your platform is used more and more by clubs and tournament organizers. What is your analysis of this recent success?
JMT: We have teams who work daily in the field, in contact with the various players in the Padel. This proximity allows us to clearly identify the requirements and expectations of clubs and tournament organizers and to transmit to our engineers the product adaptations most expected by the market. Today we have "Club Management" and "Tournament Management" products that are largely in line with the needs of our contacts.
In addition Setteo is an increasingly recognized “label”, because many national federations of Padel and Tennis have chosen our platform as their management tool. In the padel, this is the case of the International Federation and the Belgian, Austrian and Dutch federations.
Finally, clubs are attracted by the fact of being able to combine powerful management tools with our social network, through which clubs build their communication and monetize advertising space with their sponsors.
For your info, today Setteo brings together some 500 clubs and more than 50000 players.
FB: What are the features most appreciated by the clubs of Padel ?
JMT: As you know, you need to bring together 4 people to play a part of Padel ! Setteo facilitates the organization of these parts. The platform will help you in a few clicks to find a club and partners with a level of play equivalent to yours and with the same availability. Once the match has been created, all you have to do is book and, if you wish, pay for the booking online.
On Setteo, players are 100% autonomous in the organization of their games. Plant managers can therefore breathe and devote their precious time to something else!
Apart from “match creation”, clubs also choose Setteo for its tournament management module. The platform makes it very easy to organize numerous competition formats. Online tournaments / Online tournaments with a preliminary group stage / Tournament circuits with automatic ranking calculation / Team tournament / Mini Leagues.
Setteo's "tournaments" module also allows you to carry out all the animation and communication around the event.
FB: What is your pricing strategy for your “Clubs” product?
JMT: The offer is very simple. The annual subscription to Setteo Club Premium varies from 400 to 1200 euros HT / year depending on the size of the club. These prices allow the use of all the management and animation modules of the platform. I insist on the fact that no additional installation, maintenance, hosting or training costs are to be expected. No additional fees linked to the number of transactions carried out by the clubs, via the online sales modules available to them in Setteo Club Premium.
FB: What are Setteo's goals for the coming months?
Our goal is to consolidate existing partnerships and develop new partnerships with federations, clubs, tournament organizers, but also with brands and stores in France and around the world.
And of course continue to work to offer an increasingly successful and scalable product to Padeleros and the 650 Million racket sports players around the world!
