ACC Becomes First Power 5 Conference to Utilize Teamworks across Entire Organization
DURHAM, NC [February 20, 2018] – Teamworks, the industry leader in mobile collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations, is excited to announce an expanded partnership with the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Following successful utilization during 2017 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament and ACC Baseball Championship, the ACC will now employ communication and information sharing capabilities conference-wide, making the ACC the first Power 5 Conference to capitalize on Teamworks’ operational efficiencies across its entire organization and in service of its membership.
“The majority of our member institutions already use Teamworks with great success, so it was an easy choice to expand our use throughout even more areas within the league,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “Teamworks has become the industry standard for athletic organizations and furthers the ACC’s priority to provide the best resources to our conference members.”
At the forefront of innovation in athletics, Teamworks’ software effectively eliminates operational inefficiencies for more than 2,000 athletic-related entities around the world. As today’s leagues and championship events become increasingly more complex, Teamworks’ offerings are especially applicable for the governing bodies that work to ensure a seamless experience for member organizations and manage untold moving parts over the course of a year.
Teamworks will deliver the ACC a variety of management solutions that allows staff to securely share important documents, forms, schedules, videos, itineraries and more through the convenience of their mobile devices. The ACC’s partnership with Teamworks provides timesaving advantages to the conference in the form of a specialized messaging module that allows access to shared communication through talk, text, and email. By making Teamworks its preferred communications software provider, the ACC builds upon last year’s success and joins the company of other prestigious athletic organizations such as the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, Big Ten Conference Officiating, Pac-12 Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, Mountain West Conference, Southland Conference, USA Baseball and USA Track & Field in utilizing Teamworks to revamp communication and collaboration methods across their championships and other internal offices.
