Kansas City Royals Boost Major & Minor League Communication Standards Through Teamworks
The Royals are one of eleven MLB teams that leverage Teamworks to establish a consistent and seamless player experience organization-wide.
DURHAM, NC – [Tuesday, April 20, 2021] – Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for professional and collegiate organizations, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball (MLB). Across all levels of the organization, the Royals are implementing Teamworks as the foundation for dependable communication processes to foster streamlined, coherent player services and the seamless management of player movement within the organization.
“Player care and seamless communication is a top priority at every level of our organization, and our partnership with Teamworks ensures we are providing each and every player with the best overall team experience,” said JJ Picollo, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of Player Personnel for the Royals. “Our organization had experimented with other communication tools, but none provided the level of centralization, ease of use, or immediacy that Teamworks does to get everyone on the same page and functioning at their best. To establish communication efficiencies across the board, it was necessary to implement Teamworks at every level, creating a cohesive player experience across our major and minor league teams.”
The Kansas City Royals are among over 150 professional teams around the world that partner with Teamworks, a list that includes more than a third of teams competing in MLB.
“Centralized communication and a seamless flow of information between coaches, players and staff is crucial for any elite athletic organization that wants to engage players successfully,” said Zach Maurides, CEO and Founder of Teamworks. “We are excited to partner with the Kansas City Royals from the top down so that every player from their major and minor league rosters is habitually up-to-date on club operations and easily able to engage with their position coaches, training and ops staff, player services, and even other teammates.”
