DURHAM, NC – March 8, 2017 – Teamworks, the industry leader of mobile collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations, is pleased to announce it has been selected as the Collaboration Software Provider for the New York Life ACC Basketball Tournament and ACC Baseball Championship. The conference office staff, participating teams and game officials will utilize the software to centralize information sharing and streamline communication. The ACC joins the NCAA and other prominent athletic organizations in utilizing Teamworks to capitalize on its mobile technologies designed to enhance league operations and members’ championship experience.

“The ACC is pleased to partner with Teamworks to ensure that our programs are provided with every advantage and tool needed to enhance the championship experience,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We enter the New York Life ACC Basketball Tournament and ACC Baseball Championship with a more dynamic and responsive operation.”

Throughout the New York Life ACC Basketball Tournament and ACC Baseball Championship, staff and teams will utilize many of Teamworks’ premier management solutions. The software will facilitate tournament information, electronically process required forms, digitize previously paper-driven processes and enable more seamless collaboration through the convenience of mobile devices. By adopting Teamworks, the ACC invests in a shared communication platform that is proven to result in significant time savings.

“With so many of our schools already using Teamworks, individually or within the NCAA Basketball Tournament, it was a natural fit for us to integrate the platform for the New York Life ACC Basketball Tournament,” said ACC Senior Associate Commissioner for Men’s Basketball Operations, Paul Brazeau. “Teamworks offers a platform that promotes accountability, problem-solving and clear communication for staff, teams and players. We are excited to roll out the software which will allow us to be better connected to our teams.”

At the forefront of innovation in athletics, Teamworks offers an unparalleled depth and breadth of functionalities to more than 1,000 athletic entities around the world, including some of the biggest names in professional and collegiate sports. The NCAA, in its second year of its partnership with Teamworks, deploys the software across its Men’s and Women’s March Madness tournaments, as well as its Division I Championships for Men’s Soccer, Softball and Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field, to modernize the championships’ operations for all staff, participating teams, officials and game-site representatives. In addition to the ACC and NCAA, the Mountain West Conference and the Big Ten Conference have both partnered with Teamworks. Beyond its collegiate conference partners, Teamworks works with over 800 NCAA Division I teams, including all 15 ACC schools. Many programs have deployed Teamworks department-wide such as Duke, Florida State, Virginia, Southern California, Alabama, Florida, Texas, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt.

“The ACC is the most storied conference in the country, always pushing the envelope and cutting edge in its decisions, and we could not be more proud to welcome them as the newest member of the Teamworks Family,” said Zach Maurides, CEO of Teamworks. “Championships are the culmination of student-athletes, coaches and staff’s year-round preparation. Through our software, the ACC effectively minimizes distractions, while maximizing student-athletes’ and coaches’ preparation during the culmination of their seasons.”

Across professional sports, many franchises and leagues also utilize Teamworks’ time-saving solutions to eliminate internal inefficiencies. Teamworks recently launched a new partnership with the National Football League Players Association, becoming the platform used to communicate and share information with every active NFL player. As today’s sports organizations and conferences become increasingly more complex, Teamworks’ offerings promote a seamless internal operation for those managing untold moving parts over the course of a season. Teamworks’ professional league-wide partnerships include the United Soccer League and Major League Lacrosse, both of which use Teamworks across all member teams, staff and front office. Other notable partners include NFL franchises, MLB clubs, USA Baseball, adidas Team Sales and Under Armour.
