CHICAGO, IL, USA, 10 September 2013 - Intersog, global provider of IT staffing and managed web and mobile development as well as graphics design services, is pleased to announce the establishment of a business partnership with Ski Nation®, a mobile app and online ski community created by a coalition of Olympic, XGames and World Champion Gold Medalists in alpine racing, freestyle, freeride, Nordic, speed skiing, and Paralympic skiing.
Founded by over a dozen professional skiers including Bode Miller, Ted Ligety, Hannah Kearney, Simon Dumont, Tom Wallisch, Ski Nation® intends to grow into a broad international network of skiers able to interact with each other both online and in the mobile space. The network’s prototype has already been built and now the company focuses on adding extensive design, programming and robust administration system to complete the Ski Nation® mobile app and launch it to the market before the 2014 Winter Olympics. To reach this goal, the company has recently launched crowdfunding campaign to raise more funds.
After a 4-month’s long nationwide search, due diligence and contract negotiations, founding athletes eventually chose Intersog as their mobile app and website development and design team. “We wanted development team that would be fully vested in the success of Ski Nation,” said Jack Turner, a co-founder of Ski Nation “Intersog met our technical requirements, but it was just as important to find a partner that would be a collaborator with the same enthusiasm as our founding skiers.”
For Intersog it is a great honor to participate in the creation of this global skier network able to revolutionize the way all skiers manage their day-to-day relationships and change a widely used “pay-to-play” system featuring only those resorts and gear makers that pay fees. Ski Nation includes all places to ski from major resorts to local ski hills regardless if they pay a subscription.
According to Intersog’s CEO and co-founder Igor Fedulov, “Intersog is ready to dedicate our digital know-how, best practices and professionalism based on over seven years of experience creating web and mobile solutions for companies in different industries. With our solid portfolio of iOS and Android apps and additional resources for effective apps marketing and PR, I’m confident we’ll be able to deliver truly state-of-the-art iPhone and Android apps and web solutions that will help fulfill ambitious plans of Ski Nation founders and create a modern interaction platform based on the principles of transparency, independence, and versatility.”
Intersog is looking forward to effective cooperation with Ski Nation and bringing in its technology expertise to the sports industry.
