Total Sports Entertainment Awarded U.S. Patent for TSE GameTime ScriptPRO
Total Sports Entertainment announced the awarding of US Patent No. 8,195,515 for developing TSE GameTime ScriptPRO, an internet-based event management solution that provides users with a simple and streamlined way for building, organizing, and executing event scripts in real time. TSE’s premiere solution is currently being implemented by over 200 professional sports teams and universities of all levels around the world, which includes over 1500 users.
Six years ago, while consulting for a minor league baseball team, Bob Masewicz, TSE’s found/owner and primary inventor of ScriptPRO saw the need for a simpler and real-time solution for building event scripts. At the time, it would take event producers hours to prepare for the events and when the events would take place they would lose track of what is being executed.
“There was no real way to track what is being executed during events except for going back to every script from the year and checking what you ‘think’ happened. Sponsors would request proof of performance reports which would take weeks for teams to get back to them with,” Masewicz said. “When we released ScriptPRO I remember a team coming up to us and praising the system because it literally took them minutes to run and send a report to a Sponsor and all they had to do was click a couple buttons to protect their sponsorship.”
Since the initial release in 2006, ScriptPRO has seen a number of enhancements based on the user feedback of sport teams and schools in the industry. Over that time TSE has released a lite version, ScriptLE, as well as a solution geared towards high schools, ScriptPREP. Other system’s that are part of the TSE GameTime Suite include: SponsorPRO, PromoPRO and RosterPRO, all of which tie into the ScriptPRO solution. “We are very proud to have been awarded the patent we have worked so hard for. We will continue to develop our product to make the event producer’s life 100 times easier. Gone are the days of losing track of what needs to be executed during the event,” Masewicz stated.
The official Patent No. 8,195,515 is for systems and methods for dynamic event production and management covering a future live event milestone generator. It further covers a milestone module to receive live event milestones, and an interface module to receive content elements for association with the live event milestone featured in ScriptPRO’s GO LIVE feature, allowing users to make live changes to their scripts and schedules in real time.
