Simplicity and Integrated Features of Korrio’s Playflow™ Sports Automation Platform Praised by Youth Soccer Powerhouse
SEATTLE, WA (June 7, 2011) – Korrio (korrio.com), developer of the 21st-century sports automation platform Playflow™, announced today its selection by Rush Soccer (rushsoccer.com), representing nearly 40,000 youth soccer players nationwide, as its official sports automation platform provider. Rush Soccer — with 28 domestic clubs in cities including Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Memphis, Detroit, Philadelphia, Orlando, Phoenix, and Chicago — will use Playflow to manage club operations.
Korrio’s Playflow debuted earlier this year and was met with immediate success, signing prestigious organizations including Massachusetts Youth Soccer, Washington Youth Soccer, and Washington Premier FC to its client roster. Playflow integrates web, mobile, and social networking elements to provide club administrators and coaches with a comprehensive and easy-to-use online sports automation system for managing all aspects of club and team operations.
“After extensive research, we determined that Korrio — with its stellar customer service and contemporary technology — is absolutely the best fit for the Rush Soccer organization,” said Tim Schulz, President and CEO of Rush Soccer. “With thousands of players under the Rush umbrella, and goals for global growth, it was imperative that we find the best, most efficient platform with the most experienced, professional team behind it, and we’ve found it with Korrio’s Playflow. From the outset, it was clear that this is a safe, integrated, user-friendly product from which our organization will benefit greatly.”
Rush Soccer will rely on Korrio to manage administrative operations beginning with its flagship club, Colorado Rush, one of the premier youth soccer organizations in the nation.
“Rush Soccer is an impressive premier youth soccer organization, having been formed less than a decade ago and now representing nearly 40,000 players,” said Korrio Founder and CEO Steve Goldman. “With rapid growth and ambitious goals comes the need for a powerful and integrated platform that is easy for both administrators and families to use. The quality of our partners reflects greatly on Korrio’s overall success, and we’re delighted to count Rush Soccer among them. We will work closely with Rush to deliver a platform for their members that will take them into the future and elevate their game.”
