The collaboration will provide JMU’s athletic department, including its 18 varsity teams, with streamlined communication, file-sharing capabilities, travel planning services, and more.“Implementing Teamworks into our 2016-2017 season was a game changer,” said Mike Houston, JMU Head Football Coach. “Teamworks enhanced our team’s interactions on and off the field, from the very first practice, all the way to winning the FCS National Championship. We’re excited to see all of the other JMU teams benefit like we have from adopting Teamworks!”Teamworks will offer JMU many timesaving management solutions, including a messaging module that will revamp the department’s communication methods by modernizing previously paper-driven processes and centralizing information sharing. A collection of paperwork templates, team travel solutions, and individual player profiles will also be tailored to each team’s specific needs. JMU’s decision to begin a department-wide collaboration with Teamworks follows a successful 2016-2017-football season in which the Dukes brought home the Division I FCS National Championship title for the second time in school history.“It’s always a great feeling to see a member of the Teamworks family succeed where they do best as we watched JMU football do this past season,” said Zach Maurides, Teamworks Founder and CEO. “It was especially rewarding to know that Teamworks was able to come in and relieve some of the stress and time taken away from the coaching staff and football team to allow them more time for practice and to focus more on winning games. That’s the way it should be, and we’re excited to do the same thing for the rest of JMU athletics.”At the forefront of innovation in athletics, Teamworks offers an unparalleled depth and breadth of functionalities to some of the biggest names in sports.
