'UniSport Köln' is a co-operation of the German Sports University Cologne and the University of Cologne who offers a wide range of sports courses to its more than 55,000 students and many other services. More than 150 courses in about 75 different kinds of sports take place every week. The Mobil Macher were asked to find a solution that makes it possible to book courses on the go and to inform students about course cancellations as convenient as possible.
The UniSport Köln decided to use the University Sports App for iPhones and Android smartphones by the Mobil Macher which was developed in close co-operation with German university sports to meet their special requirements. It is easy to explain how it works and what it brings: the solution contains various basic functions, such as a news feed, the sports programme, information on opening times and contacts as well as a personal sports planner. In addition to that, sportsmen can book courses on the go and show a digital ticket at the entrances of various sports sites. With push notifications the students are directly informed about important events, competitions as well as course cancellations or changes. Next to having a more efficient mean of communication to all students, the push notification service also entails in a higher participation rate in the sport events of the university.
