Emerging from infancy!
FinalForms started as a custom application for a few pioneer schools. The athletic directors at these schools were savvy enough to know that a tool could be built that didn't just collect data for the sake of "going paperless", but actually USED the data to automate some of the most tedious functions of their daily life. Once we had the proof of concept, we began developing feature after feature, always to the applause of grateful ADs, Coaches, and Trainers. We now had a product that we completely believed in. A product that was vetted and loved by schools from Cleveland to Cincinnati.
-- Time for the next step! --
For the past 9 months, our development team has been working on taking FinalForms from its prototype roots to a robust, blazing-fast, and flexible application capable of hosting millions of student records! This was a direct response not only to all of the feedback we've received from parents, coaches, and athletic directors, but also to technical observations and analysis about how the system was being used. The end result is a radically improved hosting platform which translates to 4x faster page load times!
-- FinalForms is here to stay. --
In the coming months, we will be introducing some of the most popular new features in detail, providing a road-map for the future, and writing a few technical articles describing our platform and why we're so confident in our ability to handle, not just the 1.2 million student-athletes in our home state of Ohio, but an entire nation of high schoolers!
