North Dakota State University Implements Teamworks to Centralize Student-Athlete Engagement
The Bison use Teamworks to connect with all student-athletes in one unified platform.
DURHAM, NC – [Tuesday, January 7, 2020] – Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for collegiate and professional organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with North Dakota State University (NDSU). With multiple individual teams using the platform since 2016, the Bison athletics staff recognized the enhanced, efficient communication Teamworks brings to a department and expanded Teamworks usage to all teams.
“We need a way to effectively communicate and engage with our student-athletes, and Teamworks is a clear solution,” said Matt Larsen, NDSU Director of Athletics. “In the past, teams might use text messages, email, voicemail or social media to communicate, and it could be coming from coaches, academic staff, marketing or sports medicine. Teamworks allows us to streamline that communication from one place and sets a standard among staff on best-practices for notifying their student-athletes about schedules and obligations.”
Teamworks eliminates distractions by reducing outside noise so student-athletes can focus on achieving their goals and improving their success athletically and academically.
“With Teamworks, student-athletes have one location to look for all communication with NDSU Athletics,” said Larsen. “No more misunderstandings or worrying about information being up-to-date. Teamworks gives us the ability to make immediate, live updates and communicate those out effectively.”
NDSU joins more than 2,000 NCAA Division I teams that partner with Teamworks and is Teamworks’ first department-wide partner from the Summit League.
“Teamworks was founded on principles for creating effective communication that engages student-athletes and minimizes confusion,” said Zach Maurides, CEO and Founder of Teamworks. “We are excited the tools we provide will streamline communication for Bison athletics and centralize the constantly moving parts that make up a department.”
Teamworks is the leading athlete engagement platform, empowering more than 3,000 clients around the world to better connect and collaborate by simplifying their internal processes. Based in Durham, North Carolina, and founded in 2004, Teamworks continues to invest heavily in technology and expand the team to respond to the increasing customer demand.
