Our pro sports customers are fitting out team strategy rooms with magnetic dry-erase steel WhiteWall panels and covering them with PlayerMagnet cardholders, magnet signals and symbols. They can see who's available and what’s happening in dramatic color-coded visual detail and can then quickly reposition players as they develop their winning team strategy moves.

With NFL teams dropping and adding over a thousand players from their rosters between draft and opening days, it's a daunting job to show the overall player talent and status picture to those needing to know. Software programs don't encourage the intense collaboration needed to make fully informed decisions. Teams are turning to specially made magnetic whiteboards and magnets to show what's happening.

Christian Krapf, at Magnatag Visible Systems says, "Our pro sports customers are fitting out team strategy rooms with magnetic dry-erase steel WhiteWall panels and covering them with PlayerMagnet cardholders, magnet signals and symbols. They can see who's available and what’s happening in dramatic color-coded visual detail and can then quickly reposition players as they develop their winning team strategy moves."

One AFC West team VP of Operations told us, "Seeing the big picture when evaluating, managing and tracking player movement is our top priority. Our player personnel people are big on Magnatag's magnetic whiteboards and magnets for collaborating on the draft. It is the focal point of our player acquisition planning."

Teams often use up to 100 magnet holder-card color combinations and magnet signals to show player position, age, weight, 40-time, contract status, and other details, moving them to make changes. Their simplicity, flexibility, efficiency and eye-catching visible impact make PlayerMagnets on steel WhiteWalls an unbeatable team communicator and one of Magnatag's most successful products.
