Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

Collegiate coaches are now going mobile using their iPads to interactively engage recruiting prospects and manage current student-athlete information with the new ACS Athletics application. Available in the App Store, the ACSCoach iPad application is the perfect mobile companion product to InControl®, ACS's industry leading student-athlete information management system.

“More coaches are going mobile using iPads for game preparation, video and scouting, but until ACS, there have been no apps that have taken an integrated approach to improve communication and efficiency in key areas like recruiting, operations, and compliance,” said Rayan Rutledge, Vice President of Operations at ACS Athletics. “While coaches are already using InControl's existing web-based recruiting and communication capabilities, the ACSCoach iPad app provides a powerful new way to connect with recruits and athletes on the go, as well as manage and share information that's essential to their program's success,” Rutledge said.

"ACS helps me be a more effective coach and recruiter and with the ACSCoach app, they're now giving me even more of an advantage on the recruiting front, said Van Malone, Assistant Football Coach, Oklahoma State University." "The ACSCoach app is very cool, intuitive and easy-to-use, and the powerful recruiting board, communication and social media capabilities are top notch."

Mobility, integration, communication, and monitoring are the functional cornerstones of the ACS Athletics product portfolio. Founded in 1999, ACS Athletics was the first company in the industry to offer a holistic approach to managing athletic operations on one platform, including web-based and native smartphone and tablet applications for users. ACS mobile applications primarily assist with facilitating and managing recruiting and compliance-related activities.

“After hearing from coaches about how they wanted to use their iPads to better engage recruits and their athletes, giving them a simple, intuitive app was the next step for our company given the success our customers are having with our smartphone applications,” said Jason Gutcher, Vice President of Product Development and IT at ACS Athletics. “We want to make sure our coaches can easily manage their activities and engage recruits quickly so more of their conversations translate to wins in recruiting and on the field of play,” Gutcher said.

The ACSCoach iPad app is available in the App Store by searching ACSCoach on your iPad. For more information, please visit ACS Athletics at or by phone at (800) 343-6220.
