"The Biteit Group has been a key partner in realizing innovative web-based data gathering and reporting systems which were the backbone of our business for a period of two years.

The Biteit Group played a key role in achieving core business objectives for Sydney 2002, at a critical time in the life cycle of our event management company. The Biteit Group developed, implemented and supported an online registration system which captured a wide range data from the more than 20,000 participants, volunteers, officials and staff and those expressing interest in Gay Games VI, held in Sydney in November 2002. These systems were later integrated with a Games-time accreditation system developed by the Biteit Group.

A strong client focus and customized service ensured robust databases and innovative web-based solutions which met our core need of gathering data from participants and potential clients and making this available in accessible report formats to a wide range of internal stakeholders. At the time, this was a world first for large international multi sport events with Sydney 2002 Gay Games Ltd achieving 97% on-line registrations and the seamless automatic processing of multiple currencies though a payment gateway.

Through flexible web-based interfaces, reports were available to staff on-site and the many volunteer sports Competition Managers off site. This solution was also interactive for registrants through a web-based interface with clients using unique registration numbers/IDs and passwords to access personal data and make changes. This realized significant savings in administrative and database maintenance costs as registrants continually updated data right up to registration deadlines, two months before the Games.

The Biteit Group worked under our tight deadlines on the various projects for Gay Games VI, delivering quality solutions, on time, within scope and under budget.

A pleasure to work with." - Stuart Borrie (Sports Director, Sydney 2002)
