RQ+ is an innovative technology platform cultivated and shaped by the evolving end-to-end needs of the stakeholders in officiating development. Founded by a Division I Men’s Basketball Official who is also a Coordinator of Officials at the NAIA level, RQ+ is viewed by many as the leader in officiating services.
RQ+ was founded in 2018 and is based in Indianapolis, IN. Through the belief that a more efficient and effective way of providing officiating services could be achieved, the company scaled quickly. With the original foundation of utilizing video to collaborate, teach and train, RQ+ evolved into a solution that encompasses a broad suite of functionalities. Through a focus on innovation and customer service, the company rapidly gained traction and currently serves over 30,000 users in 12 sports throughout the world. These users are a combination of youth, high school and collegiate officials, representing over 100 NCAA and NAIA conferences.
The RefQuest, LLC founding mission was to leverage technology and collaboration to enhance referee development. This calling was realized in our early efforts by enabling officials and coordinators to collectively review game film and transform constructive feedback to tangible on-court results.
Today, the mission has grown significantly, due overwhelmingly to positive user feedback and client growth. Our stakeholders sought additional functionality to engage officials, and we continue to facilitate those requests through the development of the RQ+ suite of products: RQ Collaboration, RQ Genesis, RQ Assign, RQ Pay and RQ Culture.
