[Stockton, February 6, 2024] - University of the Pacific, a member of the West Coast Conference, has established itself as a leader in innovation by leveraging technology to enhance the student-athlete experience. In a strategic move, Pacific has gone Elite by adopting six products to streamline communication, bolster academic success, and fortify the athletic department.
"At the crux of our business is recruiting, retaining, and developing student-athletes. Teamworks allows us to have positive experiences with recruits and current athletes, fostering their passion and desire to compete for University of the Pacific. Teamworks aligns perfectly with our academic and athletic success goals." Wes Yourth, Deputy Director of Athletics and Chief Operating Officer.
Building Student-Athlete Success On and Off the Field
University of the Pacific began its journey with Teamworks with ARMS software, initially used for compliance and recruiting operations. Recognizing ARMS's robust solutions and workflows, Pacific started seeking additional technology to help in other areas of their student-athletes' lives. Recently, Pacific added Teamworks Hub, Smartabase, INFLCR, Pulse, Retain, and ARMS, giving them Teamworks Elite status.
"One of the pivotal reasons guiding our strategic shift towards Teamworks was centered around Retain. As we initiated crucial conversations, the spotlight turned to Retain because of a specific initiative we had to elevate the support for our student-athletes, particularly from an academic perspective. Retain emerged as the solution that aligns seamlessly with our commitment to achieving academic success within our athletic community.” Wes Yourth, Deputy Director of Athletics and Chief Operating Officer.
