DURHAM, NC – Teamworks, the leading provider of collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations, is pleased to announce it has been selected as the Collaboration Software Provider to the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. NCAA tournament and regional game-site staff as well as the 68 participating teams, their representatives and game officials will utilize Teamworks’ platforms. Accentuating the NCAA’s efforts to more widely adopt mobile communication, this announcement also reinforces Teamworks’ prominent position in the collegiate athletics marketplace.
“The Men’s Basketball Championship has so many moving parts from 68 participating teams to 14 host sites across the country,” said Ron English, director of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. “We are excited that Teamworks allows us to communicate and organize those moving parts cohesively while increasing our internal efficiency.”
Throughout NCAA March Madness®, staff and teams will utilize many of Teamworks’ time-saving management solutions. Teamworks will facilitate tournament information and allow it to be easily shared with NCAA staff and teams. Information will also be immediately accessible for teams through the mobile application. Teams will be able to electronically fill out required forms, rather than having to physically submit or scan paperwork. The process will alleviate teams from repeatedly having to complete tournament documents as they advance throughout the tournament.
“As a proud provider of communication software to athletic departments throughout the nation, we look forward to extending our platform to additional postseason tournaments and championships,” said Teamworks Founder and President, Zach Maurides. “March is an exciting, but busy, time for college basketball and we are thrilled to give the NCAA and participating teams the confidence to compete without distraction.”
As the Official Team Collaboration Software Provider to the inaugural College Football Playoff, Teamworks continues to gain notable postseason experience and extend its presence in college athletics. Teams at 80 NCAA Division I institutions, including 48 teams at Power-5 Conference institutions, have adopted Teamworks as well as many prestigious athletic departments including the University of Texas, Duke University, Purdue University, the University of Virginia and the University of Mississippi. The software also mobilizes communication for various sports related entities including adidas Team Sales and organizations like the Big Ten Conference, which partners with Teamworks to schedule, organize and communicate with football officials and basketball referees.
