Coaches are looking to maximize their time and dollars whenever they leave the office, says FieldLevel CEO Brenton Sullivan, “This benefit applies to both revenue sports and Olympic sports, regardless of size or gender.

FieldLevel has integrated Google Maps into its athletic recruiting software, giving its clients an edge over competitors. For the first time, college coaches are able to see their recruiting footprint with the click of a mouse. This enables coaches to easily identify target markets and optimize logistics on each college recruiting trip, ultimately saving staffs thousands of dollars in travel costs.

Each year, college football recruiting becomes less regional and more national. Major programs, like USC, Boise State, and Notre Dame, have looked out-of-state to capitalize on landing top recruits, oftentimes luring them away from their regional competitors. For example, 93% of the 2009-10 Oregon Ducks football team was comprised of players from outside the state of Oregon, most of which came from talent-rich California. With Google Maps, FieldLevel clients have a visual representation of their NCAA recruiting network, allowing college coaches to easily filter through the 1.1 million high school football players, regardless of state and proximity.

While on the road, the new Google Maps feature allows coaches to maximize athletic recruiting trips and save money. According to the Office of Postsecondary Education, NCAA schools spent over $163 million on recruiting expenses in 2009. This cost-saving measure allows FieldLevel clients to identify all prospects in a particular area and map out the most efficient routes to see them, resulting in the ability see more prospects in less time and reduce overall travel expenses. “Coaches are looking to maximize their time and dollars whenever they leave the office, says FieldLevel CEO, Brenton Sullivan, “This benefit applies to both revenue sports and Olympic sports, regardless of size or gender.”

Technology continues to rapidly change the college sports industry, with many athletic departments now relying on cloud computing. The FieldLevel NetworkTM remains the leading software-as-a-solution (SaaS) for coaches looking to elevate their programs. FieldLevel technology, like the FieldLevel mobile recruiting application, allows coaches to recruit more aggressively while proactively protecting them from committing NCAA violations.
