Conference Carolinas Paving the Road of Technology for Member Schools with ACS Athletics Partnership
ACS Athletics and the Conference Carolinas have now officially been brought together to benefit the institutions of the 12-member NCAA Division II conference. The new collaboration provides institutions incentive opportunities to implement ACS InControl, a proven and battle-tested technology solution that improves staff performance in the areas of recruiting, compliance monitoring and student-athlete information management.
“All members of Conference Carolinas value fair competition, ethical student recruitment and a healthy student athlete experience,” Conference Carolinas Commissioner Alan Patterson said. “ACS provides an opportunity to enhance each of these important areas and has a proven commitment to the needs and values of Division II members. Conference Carolinas is privileged to partner with ACS Athletics and endorse the value brought to our members.”
ACS Athletics is the first company to provide technology solutions of this caliber. The ACS InControl system integrates, or “bridges,” with campus information systems, providing institutions that have teamed up with ACS many timesaving benefits.
“We are hopeful that we’ll have an opportunity to help many Conference Carolinas institutions improve operating efficiencies, recruit better and more effectively manage the student-athlete life-cycle from beginning to end,” ACS President and CEO Phillip Engle said. “For ACS customers, this translates into greater success in every aspect of the program.”
