Key Management Tools Lead to Success

May 1, 2017 /

{Sponsored} For Britt Maughan, former head football coach at Snow College, success in football is rooted in great communication. Key management tools from OperationsXchange™ helped the Snow College football team communicate in every aspect, Maughan said.

Maughan began using the app in the 2015 season with the goal of organizing his team and getting everyone on the same page.

“We wanted to find something that was useful, where we could track the players academically and we could give them all of their information for the week — their schedules, their playbooks, everything, in one simple way,” Maughan said.

OperationsXchange™ became a one-stop area where Maughan could eliminate the middleman and directly provide information to everyone involved in the team. From players
to parents to teachers and coaching staff, the management app gives each user a customized view based on their assigned role.

“For me being a junior college coach where we have limited resources, it was a huge help in letting us get our guys on one page. Now I could feel like I was personally communicating with all of those players,” Maugahn said. “If I made a change, they had access to that information and didn’t have to depend on me handing out a paper or having a coach communicate to them.”

The app allows for scouting reports, playbook features, situational assessments, quizzes and more. And because players have access to this information at all times, they can plan and prepare at their own pace.

“Our players didn’t have to walk around with a notebook or a binder. If they had a free 10 minutes in between classes, they could pull up OperationsXchange™ and study our opponent; they could watch film,” Maughan said. “If they’re doing it on their own and I can quiz them, then I know they comprehend that information.”

Now a defensive coordinator at ASA College Miami, Maughan hopes to continue using OperationsXchange™ with his new team.

“We’re going to try to get that rolling here because I’m a believer in it,” he said. “I love it.”
