Nationally Renowned Seattle Soccer Club Hails Efficiency, Ease of Use, and Integrated Features of Korrio’s Playflow™ Technology Platform
SEATTLE, WA (March 16, 2011) – Korrio (korrio.com), developer of the 21st-century sports automation platform Playflow™, announced today its selection by Washington Premier F.C., one of the state’s most storied and successful soccer clubs, as its sports automation platform provider. Washington Premier F.C., winner of three national championships, will use Korrio’s Playflow sports automation platform to manage all aspects of its club operations for its male and female soccer teams, featuring more than 550 youth players.
Since the debut of Korrio’s Playflow sports automation platform earlier this year, the company has been riding a wave of momentum. Youth soccer associations and clubs across the country are recognizing the benefits of Korrio’s technology for simplifying and automating time consuming yet essential administrative tasks and processes for managing youth soccer programs.
Playflow delivers new efficiencies for club, coaches, players, and families
“While fostering a strong entrepreneurial spirit, we try to be as efficient as possible, and that is precisely why Korrio was so appealing,” said Charlie Dent, President of Washington Premier F.C. “My goal is to limit time spent on administrative and web tasks in order to put more emphasis on our players. Having an integrated solution that develops our brand and strengthens our communication will further our quest for excellence.”
Administrative tasks such as registration processing, roster creation, practice and game scheduling, and communication to parents and players require significant coordination and time from staff members. Korrio’s Playflow allows Washington Premier F.C.’s staff to manage all of those tasks in a single integrated platform where they can process player registrations, create team rosters, announce and maintain practice and game schedules, and contact parents and players directly though their personal Korrio dashboards.
“As a power user of Korrio, I continue to be impressed with how intuitive the platform is to operate. The features are sophisticated, yet easy to use,” said Kelley Jean, Registrar for Washington Premier F.C. “Korrio scheduling has saved me a great deal of time; I enter the data once, and the system pushes the right content directly to the players’ and parents’ personal dashboards. I can easily send last-minute update alerts right to their mobile device as well. Because Korrio integrates so many critical functions on one platform, I feel more in control of the administrative tasks required to get players on the field.”
A tradition of winning and commitment to excellence
Built on the belief of developing the entire individual, Washington Premier F.C. encourages its players to excel on and off the field, in academics and in the community. With one of the finest coaching staffs in the Pacific Northwest, the club has produced state youth champions, collegiate champions, and professional soccer players. Sportsmanship, scholarship, and citizenship are the pillars that define the organization.
“Washington Premier F.C. has always had an unwavering commitment to excellence, and I think that is reflected in their selection of Korrio as their sports automation provider,” said Korrio Founder and CEO Steve Goldman. “Playflow will improve their business operations while simultaneously providing their players and families with a single resource to help them organize their soccer lives. This investment in Washington Premier F.C.’s future demonstrates their leadership as one of the elite clubs in the United States.”
