ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - Decision Lens, a leading provider of cloud-based prioritization and resource optimization software, has been chosen by the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL) for player analysis and grading. The Kansas City Chiefs required an advanced software platform that could significantly help its internal decision makers develop the ideal selection criteria and benchmarks to evaluate and decide on what players it should select in the NFL Draft or offer contracts to throughout free agency.

The Kansas City Chiefs are a football club in the AFC West division of the National Football League (NFL). The franchise was a charter member of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960, originally named the Dallas Texans. They relocated to Kansas City and changed their name in 1963 and have been there ever since. The Chiefs won 3 AFL championships before the AFL-NFL merger and appeared in two Super Bowls after the merger, winning the Super Bowl title in Super Bowl IV in 1970. 

"In professional sports, and especially in the NFL, teams are always looking for an advantage," remarked Decision Lens CEO, John Kealey. "Identifying the best players at the best value is the key way to gain an edge in an incredibly competitive, salary-capped league. Decision Lens will give the Kansas City Chiefs the enhanced power they need to fine-tune their analysis and decision making when it comes to analyzing and selecting players."

"I used Decision Lens in Green Bay and I've brought it to Kansas City because I view it as a game changer for identifying and analyzing talent," said John Dorsey, General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. "The Decision Lens solution helps us add analytics to complement and test our assumptions and really focus on the key trade-offs inherent in every personnel decision."

Decision Lens is used by a number of professional sports teams across the NFL, NHL, and MLB. It also supports numerous well-known national and international organizations including Kraft, Genentech, Johnson & Johnson, Siemens, and Petrobras, among other organizations.
