SportsEngine and Diamond Scheduler Partner to Simplify Scheduling on the SportsEngine Platform
SportsEngine and Diamond Scheduler announced today a partnership to make scheduling much easier for leagues on the SportsEngine platform through an innovative new process called DirectLink. Using DirectLink, leagues will set up their teams in SportsEngine, push those to Diamond Scheduler, quickly set up their schedule, and push that schedule back to SportsEngine. No more special file formats or down/uploading required. DirectLink is a free to SportsEngine users who are using Diamond Scheduler.
“Scheduling is one of the most complicated and time consuming activities our league customers have to go through each year,” said Justin Kaufenberg, chief executive officer at SportsEngine. “With this new partnership, our league customers, many of whom already are using Diamond Scheduler, have an incredible new way to set up their league in SportsEngine, send that info through DirectLink, and complete their schedule in Diamond Scheduler. When it’s completed, a click of a button sends it all back to SportsEngine. It really transforms how our customers put together and share their schedules.”
Thousands of sports organizations have chosen SportsEngine to run their website, tournaments, leagues, online registration & mobile apps. Through these applications, over 500,000 sports teams, clubs and leagues are able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and communication, allowing them to focus on spending time with their athletes. Momentum in all sports has accelerated for SportsEngine with recent agreements signed with governing bodies, organizations, and teams.
“While our customers have been able to import their teams from SportsEngine to create their schedules, DirectLink takes so many headaches out of the process,” said John Hall, CEO of Diamond Scheduler. “This integration takes out so many steps and is exactly what our customers have been asking for. We’re excited to already see significant adoption.”
DirectLink was released in February and summer sports have already been taking advantage of the new feature to live smarter and play more.
“This is a great example of our strategy to partner with industry leaders to create a whole product solution,” added Angie Franks, chief marketing officer for SportsEngine. “We expect to complete several other integration partnerships like this in 2016 which is great news for youth sports organizations.”
