The Poor Man’s Poker League was looking for somebody to take their home poker league onto the web, including a ton of data that had been stored in simple spreadsheets with points and other information about the games and players.
PMPL came to Iambic Design and we brainstormed with them for a while before coming up with a great concept for their website and software. It was a hit, and all their players and fans were in love with it from the day it launched.
Oh, and they wanted to be able to easily and quickly manage it all themselves, with limited web knowledge. We were up to the task. First we built them a visually pleasing website for all of their players to check anytime they wanted, including during a game! Then, we built the software behind the scenes to manage the website and all their data within it. They could add new seasons, new locations, add scores per player, go back and edit any information for any location or any season, or batch add or edit any of this information. It was all inclusive.
We also built an update feature to allow the host of their flagship tournament update with some fearless anecdotes on the latest game for all of their players to see. Eventually we would also create and maintain a web forum for all of their players and fans to interact outside of the table.
The Poor Man’s Poker League started off as a friendly poker game a couple times a month with a few friends. They quickly expanded into having dozens of people at any given location on any given game night. They realized the need for a way to keep track of and easily maintain standings and records for all of their players. They were thankfully meticulous in keeping their data, albeit in an Excel spreadsheet, but it was easy enough for us to convert that data into a usable data format for the software that we built for them to display and manage any records they ever could have wanted.
