What our partners think

" In ITV7 we want to make Racing accessible to all, educate our audience and increase the enjoyment for new and existing Racing fans. When looking at the options available to us within the market Timeform stood out above the rest as meeting those goals.

Additionally through all of our experiences dealing with Timeform we know the quality service we will receive in order to ensure frictionless, swift implementations for our development teams

The Timeform Star Rating and Verdict in particular cut through a sport filled with jargon and offer really useful information to the user while still offering the detail required for our racing experts. We look forward to working with Timeform on further integrations to enrich that user experience further. "
