GSM’s widgets are built, hosted and managed by GSM, providing code snippets with fast page loads worldwide through Akamai's CDN.
Our hosted platform is essentially a collection of widgets (content blocks) that can be delivered as a stand-alone code snippets for your platform (see our Hosted Solutions products).
Our brand ScoresWay.com has been built using our hosted platform and contains all competitions that we offer globally, and can be used to view each type of widget we offer for specific sports and competitions.
As an example, you’ll see the various widgets offered for the European Championship in the list below:
Competition Page widgets:
Match Page widgets:
- LINEUPS / SUBSTITUTES
- GENERAL GAME STATS
- [team] MATCHES
Squad Page widgets:
- [team] MATCHES
Player Page widgets:
- TRANSFERS & LOANS
- [player] MATCHES
There is a range of additional widgets available within other pages and other sports. Custom widgets not yet available can also be built. Our hosted products also communicate together, allowing for stand-alone widgets to link to main iFrame pages, providing a turn-key solution.
While any level of customization can be achieved, many widget builds include:
- Product set-up/creation with the competition(s) & content required
- Matching colors and fonts
- Changing the widget’s size and layout
- Providing multi-language functionality
- Custom styling
Our Products Team can gather specific requirements and provide an itemized development proposal with costs and timeframes. Typical delivery time ranges from 1-3 weeks.
Our support staff is on duty 24/7/365 to help with any issues during integration and after go-live.
“CONCACAF is pleased to be working with Global Sports Media to power the data platform for our online properties. During the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup and Champions League, GSM provided an excellent live match service, including real-time score updates and live commentary in both English and Spanish. The information was updated in real-time with a high level of integrity that gave us enough assurance to rely on their live feed. We've been very happy with the response times on our support queries. The flexibility of the crew and the system to adapt to situations tailored to our needs has been outstanding, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with GSM.”
