Teamworks and INFLCR are excited to announce a new partnership with Stony Brook Athletics, the first joint, department-wide partner to launch with both product platforms. Stony Brook will expand its Teamworks agreement to provide all sports with the centralized communication and operations platform.
Additionally, the Seawolves will activate a department-wide partnership with INFLCR to provide student-athletes with photo/video content and educational resources in preparation for name, image, and likeness opportunities that will be available in the near future.
“Technology has become a critical part of the modern college athletic department, and I’m excited to bring such powerful resources to my entire staff and to all of the student-athletes at Stony Brook,” said Stony Brook Director of Athletics Shawn Heilbron.
“Between the communication tools from Teamworks and the NIL platform from INFLCR, our goal is to create an environment that supports our student-athletes in everything that they do. There are so many practical uses for these technologies in our department, and we’re excited to roll up our sleeves and get to work taking Stony Brook athletics to the next level.”
