DURHAM, NC – Teamworks, a leading provider of mobile collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations is pleased to announce that the Arizona Cardinals have become the most recent team to enlist its services to enhance team communication. The announcement reflects a larger shift in professional teams consciously investing in new technology to reach millennial athletes on their preferred medium of communication, the smartphone.
Given the ubiquitous use of the smartphone among modern day professional athletes, the Teamworks app allows the Cardinals staff to stay in constant communication with their players directly on the devices that hold their attention all day long. It enables players to securely view a live team schedule; access important documents, complete and file necessary forms, and much more, all from the convenience of their mobile phone. “The ability to communicate with our players and disseminate information instantly is a great advantage whether we are at home or on the road. Our team and staff appreciate the convenience of having everything they need always available and in the palm of their hand,” said Cardinals Football Operations Coordinator, Matt Caracciolo.
Teamworks is well experienced in adapting to the changing athletic landscape and versed in the dynamics between players and coaches as the industry standard for championship level collegiate teams, working with more than 80% of Power-5 institutions. Of the top college football teams for the 2015 NFL draft, Florida State, Louisville, Miami, Stanford, Alabama, Oregon, USC, Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia, Utah, Arizona State, Michigan State, Texas, Minnesota, Michigan, and UCLA are all listed among Teamworks clients, and Teamworks’ growth into the NFL is a natural fit as these players make the transition from college athletics to their professional teams. Many athletic-related businesses and organizations have also adopted the platform including adidas Team Sales, the NCAA, the Big Ten Conference and the Mountain West Conference.
“Given today’s technology, if you’re still using paper and pencil and relying on outdated methods of communication, you’re falling behind,” said Teamworks Founder and President, Zach Maurides. “The advent of the smartphone has changed the way humans around the world communicate, particularly the millennial demographic who prefer to communicate via their mobile devices. Teams, like the Arizona Cardinals, that have made a conscious investment in improving communication and operational efficiency have players who are more informed, are on time, and are more connected to their team. It’s absolutely a competitive edge.”
