e-grep and m-grep

e-grep and m-grep for American Football

The name „e-grep“ stands for „electronic-game reporting“ and offers with its intuitive interface, which is especially designed for American Football, the possibility for a quick and effective caption of game data. This comprehensive system covers all statistical requirements, regardless of whether scores, scoreboard, team statistics or play-by-play data including the instant visualisation of the gathered statistics.

Faciliated play-by-play recording

Each action on the field can be captured in an easy and intuitive way. The data input assistant suggests various action possibilities step by step. For an even faster and more efficient workflow it is also possible to highlight jersey numbers of recurring players such as quarterback, running back, kicker or punter. This function completes input fields automatically. Eventual corrections are of course possible at any time.

With this simple input system even one single person can be entrusted with the play-by-play recording.

Capture of overall data

With the system „e-grep” you can also gather all data around the game such as roster with jersey numbers and position, exact times of kickoff and end of game, weather situation, referees, number of spectators and field length.

Flexible corrections in hindsight

It is possible to correct every play at any time – both during the live game and days after – and with just one click your correction is online. The new statistical values are updated and displayed immediately.

Simultaneous multi-user data input

A main feature is the ability to link any number of devices together to allow simultaneous data acquisition by several statisticians simultaneously. This way you can have any number of statisticians sitting side-by-side or spread throughout the stands, offering you maximum accuracy when entering the current game situation.
All changes automatically synchronize with all other connected devices allowing the statisticians to focus on specific areas or players.

  • Easy data acquisition – professional output
    “e-grep” impresses with a full electronic data input via an easy-to-use computer program that supports different international game report styles as well as parallel input terminals. On basis of the game report data the system compiles flexible analyses on the highest international level – with full support for the live operation!


  • Usage of existing infrastructure
    As a result of low system requirements e-grep can be installed on every conventional computer or notebook with Windows operation system. So the already existing infrastructure of your club or association can be shared on very low costs. In case of a hardware defect the operation of e-grep (with a built in security-crypting system for game-reports) can be continued quickly on a replacement notebook – another feature that contributes towards fail safety.


  • Display of live data
    The live statistics of every game can simply be integrated into every website by the help of hockeydata widgets. Included are not only the game schedule with live results, the standings with live ranking or the team and individual stats of the current season, but also the complete statistics of a game itself.

  • Live and/or post-game data input
  • Integrated and automatic live scoring
  • Parallel input via multiple terminals
  • End-to-end integration of various capturing terminals (scores, play-by-play, …)
  • High performance
  • Flexible input of the field length (if not 100 yards)
  • Intuitive operating
  • Data input assistant
  • Operation also without steady internet connection
  • Integrated game clock optional
  • Connection to other hockeydata modules and external timing systems (Omega, Tissot, …) possible

There are no certain requirements for the usage of “e-grep”.

Every common office computer (notebook, tablet, PC) with a Windows 10 (or 7) operating system is suitable for the use.

“e-grep” requires no special installation. If necessary, you can start the program directly from an USB stick.

About ``m-grep``

The module “m-grep” – our short form for “mobile e-grep” – represents the smaller option of statistic gathering. “m-grep” captures only the scores including the scorer, which allows an instant live scoring with scorers and live standings.


  • Handling via smartphone or notebook
  • simple and intuitive user interface
  • statistics with a minimum of staff expenses (starting at one person)
  • simple installation
  • one or more accesses per club
  • Access for league supervisors for corrections or confirmations
