Explore Consulting Celebrates 10 Years with the NFL Combine

BELLEVUE, WA – February 19, 2016 – Explore Consulting, a professional services company that provides innovative technology solutions for managing business data and a cost-effective approach to completely outsourced IT in the cloud, proudly celebrates its tenth year working with National Football Scouting and National Invitational Camp.


Over a decade ago, NFS-NIC engaged with Explore Consulting to develop a new technology solution for the NFL Scouting operations to better capture, manage, and distribute their data throughout the college football seasons as well as at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis each February. This partnership has taken the organization from a manual-entry, paper-based, delay-filled reporting system with slow delivery and potential data security concerns, to a completely integrated suite of applications for the NFL Combine that allows organizers and scouts to capture, merge and deliver event data in real-time via any MS Windows based device.


“For over a decade, we have trusted Explore Consulting to help us collect, organize, secure, manage and deliver data that is the core of our business” said Jeff Foster, President, NFS-NIC. “They have exhibited both creativity and expertise in developing and implementing programs that continue to improve our accuracy and efficiency, while also working to ensure it aligns with our budget. The leadership at Explore is exceptional and accessible, and we greatly appreciate their support and look forward to working together for the next decade.”


Not only does this system play a critical role at every NFL Scouting Combine, Explore also works with several originating sources to gather initial player data as the road to the draft begins for more than 300 draft prospects each year. From loading scouting reports, player images and questionnaires to capturing real-time electronic 40 times, tracking players throughout the event, and even producing player slides for the stadium boards, Explore Consulting has been a critical partner of the NFL Combine since 2007, and continues to expand its use of technology year after year.


“It’s a privilege to be a small cog in such an impressive machine and American institution, and our partnership and participation in the Combine has been incredibly rewarding!” said Steve Jones, CEO and co-founder of Explore Consulting.


Explore looks forward to many more years supporting the Combine and National Football Scouting, and continuing to further data and IT innovations as technology evolves.
