The easy way to pay


The Brief

NCHL is a nonprofessional hockey league in Calgary with 10k+ players. Before the solution, it was hard to predict budget, expenses and number of teams and games for the season. A captain had to collect money from 20-50 team players to pay for the participation. The procedure was time-consuming, inconvenient and caused inefficient cash flow usage. The issue required an innovative approach to optimize cash flow prediction.

Breakout is the solution that shortens the value chain by a combination of social and financial tools and results in improving the finance of the company.

Delivered Value

Every participant of the transaction faced distinct obstacles before the product. Thus, we associated solutions for three user profiles:

- A league CFO;

- A captain;

- A team player.

The admin panel opportunities for different users are:

- A league representative can manage all the payments, control contributors and hold the season;

- A captain has the tools to create and distribute invoices and gather a team;

- A team player has different opportunities to pay or even divide the payment for separate fees in his personal account.

Our experts shortened the value chain, accelerated cash flow and made it predictable in one digital environment.

Key features

Now everything needed is gathered in one digital environment, convenient for both players and skating rink owners. There is a built-in payment system that significantly simplifies the flow of invoices and money transfers related to the game organization.
