The JumpForward Recruiting Solution allows coaches to recruit from their desktop or on the road with native mobile apps. All the features coaches want are included including branded emails, customizable questionnaires, film log capabilities, interactive recruiting boards, and much, much more.
The JumpForward native mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and iPad allow coaches to recruit on-the-go. No more memorizing NCAA calendar rules or logging phone calls because the phone has the rules built in and provides warning messages before an illegal call goes through. Edit prospects, complete contacts and evaluations, and keep all members of a coaching staff up-to-date in real time!
Because prospects continue to send in highlight and game film to coaches, JumpForward provides a film logging tool that allows coaches to keep track of the media coming in from prospects, as well as to sync web-based video (YouTube, etc.) to the prospect’s profile. With one click the coaches can view the videos directly from the prospect’s profile within JumpForward!
The fastest and easiest way to get new prospects into a coach’s database is through JumpForward’s Customizable Questionnaire. This tool allows the coaches to customize the questions being asked, designate questions that require a response, and choose the color scheme and logo that help to brand their program. The questionnaire resides on the school’s website and allows the athletes to submit their profiles directly to the coach’s database – NO data entry for the coaching staff!
The JumpForward Recruiting Board is an interactive depth chart that allows coaches to organize their top prospects into a customizable board with pictures and information about the athlete. Gone are the days where you manage your top kids on a white board with markers. The Recruiting Board will help you to organize and manage these prospects in a real-time fashion that can be accessed by all coaches on the same staff.
In addition to the standard reports that coaches use (calls, contacts, evaluations, visits, etc.), JumpForward allows the coaches to create ad-hoc reports with the information they desire. Additionally, JumpForward will create custom reports for the coaches with all of the specifications and design layouts that they are used to. All they have to do is send over a copy of the report and JumpForward will replicate that report into an online format.
JumpForward allows you to send mass text messages to the entire roster to provide updates about the program or the happenings of the day – practice cancellations, weather delays, or simple updates about the team. Let everyone know instantly what’s going on with your program and get all replies to yourmobile phone so that you can be on the go!
Through the use of JumpForward’s branded emails, coaches can do just that! These emails are professionally designed and come with the industry’s highest delivery rate at 97%! Each campaign is backed with full analytics to show who is opening emails, when they are opening them, what they are clicking on, and who they are sharing the emails with. Oh, we should also mention that each program gets UNLIMITED BRANDED EMAIL TEMPLATES!
Although much of what JumpForward does is recruiting based, we provide a suite of tools for coaches to be able to submit their activities and paperwork to compliance. Our solutions allow the coaches to submit their countable, athletically related activities (practice logs) through an innovative and interactive calendar that can be submitted to compliance. Simply input the activity information (practice, competition, weight training, skill instruction, etc.) and lock it down when you’re done. JumpForward’s technology automatically calculates your hours in real-time and then allows the coaches to submit to compliance, who can then submit to the student-athletes for approval.
