Local gym goers to benefit from new digital timetable


Local charity, Sport Aberdeen, has today reached a major milestone in its journey to improve digital services for its members, signalling a step away from traditional printed material to a more efficient digital interface.

The Application Programming Interface (API) – which went live on Sport Aberdeen’s website today (11 March) – offers customers across the city an easy to use, online timetable that provides real time group exercise information across its 18 facilities at the click of a button.

Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Performance and Planning, Jill Franks, said:

“Going live with our new digital timetable is an exciting step forward for Sport Aberdeen, especially at a time when digital technologies are at the forefront of Community Planning Aberdeen’s (CPA) Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP).

“It is essential to the future of the city that customer focused services respond to the evolving needs and growing opportunities of digital technologies.

“The purpose of this improvement is to ensure that booking classes and getting active with Sport Aberdeen is a more fluid process for customers and that we have the most up to date information available in an easy to access format.”

In addition, moving to a more customer focused, digital interface will considerably reduce Sport Aberdeen’s environmental impact.
