According to experts, the difficulties in the development of IAS may be similar to those that arise in the development of market services and aggregators. “This is primarily the connection of institutions and integration with their information systems. It is important that the IAS does not have conflicts with the IP installed in sports schools when booking a specific time, especially if private institutions will be connected in the future, ”says Maxim Ozerov. The main thing to be worked on, in his opinion, is the quality of service, first of all, the relevance of information.
