Robert Morris Consolidates Athletics Technology with Teamworks Partnership
Robert Morris leverages Teamworks and INFLCR Verified across the athletic department, for 400 student-athletes.
MOON TOWNSHIP, PA – [Thursday, August 26, 2021] – Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for collegiate and professional organizations, is pleased to announce an expanded, department-wide partnership with Robert Morris Athletics.
The comprehensive platform partnership allows RMU student-athletes to easily access all information and communication regarding scheduling, compliance, team operations, brand building, content delivery, and more through a centralized portal on their mobile phones.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Teamworks as an opportunity to enhance the experience of all student-athletes at RMU,” said RMU Vice President and Director of Athletics Chris King. “The past year has illustrated the importance of developing intentional communication strategies that prioritize connection in a digital environment that is second nature to our student-athletes.”
“As we navigate this new environment of collegiate athletics, we will rely on both the Teamworks and INFLCR platforms to centralize department communication and ensure that our student-athletes are equipped for the road ahead.”
RMU Athletics also recently announced its partnership with INFLCR to launch FORMULA, a comprehensive development program that equips RMU student-athletes with the tools and resources to prepare and succeed in the new era of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL).
RMU Athletics’ partnership with INFLCR will provide student-athletes with a comprehensive suite of services through a digital platform and mobile app that provides tools for education and reporting on NIL activity, as well as a platform that will help student-athletes to identify verified NIL opportunities on their own.
Additionally, the platform will serve as the main hub for tracking and monitoring student-athlete activities as they leverage available opportunities provided through the INFLCR Compliance Exchange, empowering student-athletes with the knowledge and tools to connect with trusted partners to capitalize on their name, image, and likeness.
“In the last year, we’ve learned how critical technology is for a team or athletic organization to operate optimally, and NIL legislation going into effect July 1 solidified that further. We are excited to have Teamworks serve as the communications and operations platform seamlessly connecting leadership, athletes, coaches, and staff at RMU,“ said Teamworks founder and CEO Zach Maurides.
“Likewise, we are thrilled to partner with RMU’s FORMULA NIL program and supply Colonial athletes with the content delivery, education, marketplaces, analytics, and automatic reporting so they can strategically and compliantly build their brands and capitalize on verified NIL opportunities listed in the INFLCR Exchange.”
The Colonials compete in NCAA Division I and are members of the Horizon League. Through the Teamworks partnership, Robert Morris centralizes class and practice schedules, digitizes team travel itineraries, fosters streamlined communications and more for 400 student-athletes. RMU joins the Univ. of Illinois – Chicago as the second department-wide partner from the Horizon League.
