Digital transformation has become a buzzword in collegiate athletics over the last decade. Organizations have transitioned from manual processes to tech-driven tools, in efforts to improve staff productivity and operational efficiency, while focusing on optimizing the athletic performance of student-athletes both on and off the field. With the addition of new technology and processes, app fatigue and overall tech "noise" have become real issues. At Teamworks, we recognize these challenges and understand that selecting the right tech for your organization is not an easy task. In an effort to help you navigate this journey, let’s start with the basics - Teamworks Hub.
Teamworks Hub is the backbone of your athletic department. It's a powerful operational solution that streamlines your team by unifying communications, operations, profiles, and travel management. Additionally, it functions as the “hub” to connect all of the purpose-built tools within the Teamworks Operating System for Sports™, paving the way for future integrations and next level efficiency.
While Hub unlocks the pathway to future integrations; it is the single most engaged piece of technology for student-athletes.
