Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
SmartCrowdz announced today that it is reaching out to college athletic departments to help them better market, manage and monetize their sports events and seasons.
The SmartCrowdz website and mobile app, helps athletic departments increase attendance, engagement and overall experience of fans and students at games and events by publishing an overview of the event or season, including a personalized background for their athletic department event site, along with a custom photo, icon or image to match their branding; developing, editing and publishing a schedule for their season or event with all relevant location, date, time and information; creating an interactive map with map markers for all venues, activities, and other relevant event locations; assigning their staff or requesting volunteers for important tasks, with reminder notices as the due date/time nears; posting alerts for students and fans that note changes to the schedule or location, weather alerts or other important reminders; and uploading pictures and links to previous games or activities at the event.
“SmartCrowdz can be a real game changer for athletic departments, particularly at smaller colleges and universities,” said Randy Smith, cofounder and managing partner of SmartCrowdz. “By providing a free, easy-to-use technology, college athletic departments of all size can better market, manage and monetize their sports events.”
By setting up a sports event or season on SmartCrowdz, college athletic departments allow students and fans to actively engage with their custom app on a laptop, tablet or mobile device by: reading the overview of the upcoming season or event; reviewing the interactive schedule, selecting activities or games of interest and adding everything to online calendars; volunteering for tasks; inviting family and friends to “join” the event; using the interactive event map to get directions; posting comments and uploading pictures; and having the event or season site always be accessible so it is permanently memorialized.
“College athletic departments have told us that they would like to find more ways to engage their fans,” said Mike Lanese, cofounder and managing partner of SmartCrowdz. “SmartCrowdz provides the perfect application to create a dynamic event community around sports events so athletic departs can communicate with their fans before, during and after the events.”
