BigTeams-Schedule Star & FamilyID Announce Partnership to Deliver Integrated, Best-in-Breed Automation Tools for School Athletic Departments

December 14, 2018

ASHBURN, Va. and LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BigTeams-Schedule Star and FamilyID are pleased to announce they have entered into a partnership to deliver a seamless integration of their best-in-breed software solutions to help schools run more efficient sports programs.

BigTeams-Schedule Star is a leading provider of athletic-management software to thousands of schools and leagues across the country. FamilyID simplifies program and activity registration for thousands of schools and community organizations, and nearly 1.5 million families nationwide.

Athletic departments want to focus on developing talent, training and game strategy—not data entry. Until now, registering student athletes for sports programs has often meant entering the same data more than once, wasting time and increasing the possibility for errors.

This new partnership creates a solution that allows direct transfer of registration data from FamilyID into Schedule Star rosters with the click of a button, eliminating the need for manual data entry. “Schools and families rely on FamilyID to reduce paperwork and streamline the registration process. We are excited to work with BigTeams-Schedule Star to deliver the next level of convenience and automation to busy school athletic departments,” said Rochelle Nemrow, founder and CEO of FamilyID.

BigTeams-Schedule Star offers a variety of online tools to ease the administrative burden for athletic departments, from scheduling software to websites that build community engagement. FamilyID focuses on making life easy for both parents and schools with simple tools for managing program registration and payment. Connecting the two companies’ services will help athletic departments spend more time concentrating on their athletes and less time on data entry, redundant administrative tasks and tracking down paperwork.

“Our partnership with FamilyID will help BigTeams-Schedule Star continue to be the premier provider of tools and expertise that enhance the lives of those connected to high school athletics, while saving athletic directors time,” said Steve Sutherland, Chief Development Officer and founder of BigTeams.

Athletic directors interested in taking advantage of this integration or looking for an all-inclusive solution for managing their departments can contact either BigTeams or FamilyID.
