Colorado Rockies partner with tablet technology leader PlayerLync


DENVER, Colo. (December 11, 2013) - The Colorado Rockies recently partnered with Denver-based PlayerLync for the 2014 season. PlayerLync, a leading enterprise platform utilized with proven performance throughout the NFL, has now revolutionized the Colorado Rockies process to distribute video and securely collaborate throughout the organization.

Last season, the Rockies were the first MLB team to adopt PlayerLync's technology to automatically push and control videos, scouting reports and more to the teams' iPads."

"It used to be difficult and time consuming to distribute video and scouting reports to anyone outside our building," says Brian Jones, video coordinator for the Colorado Rockies. "Now, with PlayerLync's technology, we are able to automatically disperse those videos and reports to the iPads of any player, coach, or scout, no matter where they are. PlayerLync has revolutionized our process, and there's not another technology solution like it."

The Colorado Rockies also utilize PlayerLync to provide their baseball operations staff with instant access to scouting reports with attached videos of amateur and professional players to enhance the evaluation process for scouting and coaching purposes. The Rockies baseball operations staff and scouts now have the ability to access video and scouting tools while outside of the Coors Field offices.

With 50 percent of the NFL on board, in addition numerous baseball, hockey and basketball teams (professional and college), PlayerLync has had great success implementing their solution with global restaurant groups, retail chains, companies with large field service teams and media production companies.

"We've developed a solution that revolutionizes how organizations such as The Colorado Rockies can educate, train and collaborate as a team in ways that were never before available," said Bob Paulsen, co-founder and CEO of Anschutz-backed PlayerLync. "All of our clients across multiple industries have seen significant improvements in bottom line productivity gains and cost savings. I think they are all a bit shocked by how utilizing today's tablet technology to communicate and improve efficiencies can deliver a powerful ROI."

PlayerLync currently works on iPads and Windows 8 tablets.
