Strong Recreational Club Experiences Firsthand how Easy it can be to Communicate and Manage Information Online
SEATTLE, WA (September 1, 2011) – Korrio (korrio.com), developer of the 21st-century sports automation platform Playflow™, announced today its selection by Lake Stevens Soccer Club, one of the state’s largest recreational soccer clubs, as its official sports automation platform provider. Lake Stevens will use Korrio’s Playflow to manage all aspects of its club operations for its 1,000 players.
Since the debut of Korrio’s Playflow earlier this year, the company has been riding a wave of momentum by signing prestigious state, club and recreational associations. 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.
Playflow delivers more control for all stakeholders
“As a volunteer organization, making things easy and efficient is key to our success,” said Eric Pierce, President of Lake Stevens. “My goal is to limit time spent making phone calls and sending emails. Playflow is the platform we use to control and manage all of our communication and content. I want to save time and energy on administrative tasks – and focus on building player skills, good sportsmanship, and having fun.”
Administrative tasks such as registration processing, roster creation, practice and game scheduling require significant coordination and time from staff members. Korrio’s Playflow enables Lake Stevens Soccer Club staff and volunteers to manage all of those tasks in a single integrated platform and communicate information directly to parents and players though their personal Korrio dashboards.
“I am most impressed with how user friendly and intuitive this platform is. As the person responsible for updating our website, I know firsthand how easy it is. It’s actually fun! With our previous solution, we did not have access to making web changes, which caused frustration and consumed lots of time. Korrio saves us effort in every area of our club operations,” said Pierce. “We are also pleasantly surprised by Korrio’s level of support. I can usually figure things out due to how intuitive the platform is, but when I need help – they are there for us. I would give them an “A+” in response and service!”
Lake Stevens Soccer Club is ready to start the season with a new level of play both on and off the field. Everyone from the back office, coaches, parents and players – are enjoying Korrio and all that is has to offer. “The fact that it’s so easy to use, keeps our kids data safe and secure – and reduces volunteer time – is a win for everyone involved,” added Pierce.
“Having web hosting built into the core platform gives clubs ultimate control. The way our platform is designed allows for fast and accurate editing so you don’t have to rely on a third party for changes,” said Korrio Founder and CEO Steve Goldman. “Playflow will improve operations and allow a more simplified and organized experience for Lake Stevens Soccer Club and their committed families. Korrio will truly transform the experience this season for everyone involved.”
