DURHAM, NC – Monday, May 1, 2017 – Teamworks, the industry leader of mobile collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations, is pleased to announce its first partnership in the National Hockey League with the Nashville Predators.  As the Predators’ Collaboration Software Provider, Teamworks will modernize the organization’s internal communication methods as well as streamline travel planning and player/personnel information for the front office, staff, coaches and players.  The Preds’ investment in Teamworks reflects a larger movement across the National Football League, Major League Baseball and other professional sports as organizations increasingly turn to the platform to capitalize on its mobile technology to increase internal efficiency.
