The University of Memphis has partnered with ACS Athletics to implement ACS InControl™, the premier student-athlete management system that provides a holistic solution for athletics department processes, information management and communication. Memphis will use the Baseline version of ACS InControl to manage recruiting activities for all sports, compliance monitoring, roster management, student-athlete forms, complimentary admissions and playing and practice season hourly log submission.
The University of Memphis athletics department sponsors 20 varsity sports. The department serves over 400 student-athletes and competes in Conference USA. With so many moving parts and the desire to maximize efficiency, the department chose to move away from products that provide a solution for only one area and instead approach the challenge from a broader perspective. In this manner, ACS Athletics will help the athletics department solve multiple challenges, such as managing recruiting and student-athlete records, sending branded email campaigns and automating compliance monitoring, with one holistic solution.
InControl Baseline was released this fall as a bundled product that features a “best practices” build of the system, allowing for a more rapid, easy to adopt training and implementation program. The implementation timeline is typically 30-60 days, allowing customers like the University of Memphis to quickly see a return on their investment through improved operational performance, enhanced recruiting capabilities and increased compliance monitoring.
“We could not be more excited than to have a great program such as the University of Memphis join the growing ACS client family,” said Phillip Engle, President of ACS Athletics. “The ACS team looks forward to a long and productive relationship, and to consulting and serving the Memphis coaches, support staff and administrators at a very high level.”Tags: ACS Athletics, InControl, Memphis, new customer
