National Governing Body for Amateur Baseball Implements Teamworks Across Organization
DURHAM, NC – June 28, 2016 – Teamworks, a leading provider of mobile collaboration and communication software for athletic organizations, is pleased to announce an agreement with USA Baseball. As USA Baseball’s Collaboration Software Provider, Teamworks will streamline communication and information sharing for staff, parents, players and coaches through its mobile technologies. Following the software’s recent reach into professional baseball and now USA Baseball, Teamworks’ continues to position itself as the go-to resource for athletic teams, organizations and National Governing Bodies.
“If we’re not identifying and following athletes in the United States, we’re most likely traveling internationally with the national teams,” said USA Baseball Chief Operating Officer, David Perkins. “Teamworks’ functionality will allow us to effectively manage communication with multiple amateur and professional national teams with players from all corners of the country.”
By adopting Teamworks, USA Baseball will move further toward a paperless operation as well as enhancing its internal collaboration. Teamworks’ messaging module will revamp USA Baseball’s communication allowing staff and coaches to immediately send email, text, voice, or push notifications to national team players and families.
“Teamworks is going to save our staff a significant amount of time that we have previously spent on data-entry and filing,” said Ashley Bratcher, Senior Director, Operations at USA Baseball. “Additionally, the convenience to our players and staffs who are attuned with smartphone technology will allow us to collect and push information through a universally preferred medium: their mobile devices.”
Having solidified its position as the premier communication solution for collegiate athletic programs, Teamworks continues to expand its functionality and apply its platform to professional sports and other athletic organizations. Working with over 300 NCAA Division I teams as well as many prestigious athletic departments, Teamworks has become a fixture of student-athletes’ daily life. As those student-athletes graduate and join professional teams, coaches, staff and front offices are increasingly adopting Teamworks, a software many of their players have already become accustomed to at the collegiate and youth levels. Teamworks announced its first agreements in professional baseball earlier this year, having started working with the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals. In the National Football League, Teamworks has already established relationships with the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. Outside of the traditional team environment, many athletic-related businesses already deploy Teamworks including the NCAA, Big Ten Conference, Mountain West Conference and adidas Team Sales.
“USA Baseball’s vast operation is a wonderful example of how complex the world of athletics has become today,” said Teamworks Founder, Zach Maurides. “Some of the staff follow prospective athletes, others travel with teams directly representing the sport as a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and the World Baseball Softball Confederation, while others still are responsible for promoting and developing the game of baseball at the grassroots level. To offer a product that clearly will have such a positive impact as well as ensuring the immediacy and accuracy of information, brings us great pride and pushes us to keep innovating and adapting to the changing world of athletics.”
