Charleston, SC – Charleston Academy and Drivn today announced a multi-year partnership in which the Boston, MA., based company will be the official club app provider of Charleston Academy.
With the new partnership, Drivn will supply Charleston Academy with an official app for club, team and player communication through the 2019-21 seasons.
“Today’s players don’t use browsers, they use apps. We needed a bespoke app solution that fits not only the communication, video, data and social integration needs of our club, directors, coaches and players, but also our brand. Drivn is the best solution for Charleston Academy to do this,” said Jaime Shamis, Charleston Academy Club Director.
DRIVN provides software that allows sports organizations to design and publish branded mobile apps. This in addition to having ownership of the data, immediate access to their network, and input into future features and functions provides the leaders of growing organizations with the scalable solution they need to extend and expand their programs.
Says DRIVN CEO and co-founder, Chris Heidelberger, “It was clear from our first meeting that Charleston Academy would make a great partner. Their mission to develop elite athletes across multiple sports aligns perfectly with the DRIVN platform’s flexibility. We are excited by the vision of what Charleston Academy is and will become in the years ahead and we are thrilled to be providing the technology that will help them execute and grow.”
