We exist to help athletes and coaches to train smarter and improve faster.
The idea for Protern.io was born in the spring of 2019.
The team was in Finland working on a prototype product for cross-country skiing with our national federation customers when one said, “if there was an easy way to isolate and analyze all this data that would be great.” And the germ of an idea- Protern.io was born.
Working closely with Swiss-Ski, who had been playing with football (soccer) GPS sensors for their speed skiers at the 2018 Olympics in South Korea, we changed our cross-country skiing software to work for alpine skiing.
By July of 2019 Protern.io software was ready for testing. The first proof of concept was taken to Zermatt where a Corinne Suter shaved over 0.5 seconds off her time in training using the insights and analysis Protern.io supplied.
In November of 2019 it was announced that Protern.io was ready to launch to the world and would make its debut supporting its first customer, the renowned Swiss national alpine ski team, at the Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup. Since then, our elite customers have won over 150 world cup medals.
Our customers quickly realized the value of getting times and speed anywhere on the course. So what started as a tool for national ski teams primarily for speed events, has since evolved to clubs and teams across the globe from U12 to FIS with tech events being the most recorded data.
We have been very luck and grateful for our early partners at Swiss-Ski to help us play a role in changing how athletes and coaches train for alpine skiing.
