JumpForward’s iPhone App Proactively Prevents Violations for College Athletic Departments

Empowers college athletic departments to proactively prevent compliance violations and increase college coach productivity and collaboration

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 31, 2010

JumpForward (http://www. jumpforward. com (http://www. jumpforward. com)), the leading provider of web and mobile solutions to college athletic departments, has released the second version of its patent-pending iPhone mobile application for college athletic departments. With clients in the Big Ten, Big East, ACC, MAC, and SEC, JumpForward provides a customized, end-to-end recruiting and compliance platform that strengthens a college athletic department’s internal controls, policies, and procedures.

For many NCAA athletic departments, the inability to monitor phone calls, text messages, and e-mails can lead to damaging recruiting violations. The cost of a violation can lead to lost scholarships, recruiting bans, and a damaged brand.

For years, college athletic departments have been manually logging prospect communications and then sending those logs to the compliance department where they search for violations. This process is time consuming and only discovers violations after they have occurred. In the last two years, 18 college athletic departments were cited with major infractions for telephone, text message, and email violations. The JumpForward iPhone application monitors prospect communications in real time and is the only product available that proactively prevents these types of violations before they occur.

“It’s truly amazing to see the excitement among college compliance officers and coaches,” said Adam McCombs, CEO of JumpForward. “The JumpForward native mobile iPhone application is the glue that combines JumpForward’s best-in-class recruiting solution to our ground-breaking compliance products. Our goal is to use technology to improve the way college athletic departments communicate so they can avoid costly NCAA infractions and protect their valuable brands.”

In addition to the compliance capabilities of the JumpForward iPhone application, college coaches are now able to collaborate more effectively in real-time. With JumpForward’s iPhone application, college coaches who are always traveling are able to update and add prospects, find directions, send branded e-mails, and see real-time communication events with their prospects. Instead of wondering if an assistant e-mailed or called a prospect, the head coach can more effectively collaborate with his or her staff members and increase the team’s overall recruiting productivity.
