Québec, Québec - August 30, 2017 - Athlex, an emerging leader of communication software for elite sports organizations, is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), and its members the Western Hockey League (WHL), Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).
This announcement comes one year after the QMJHL introduced Athlex to communicate throughout its structure. The CHL will leverage Athlex mobile technology to improve its communication methods with all members including players, coaches, staff, billet families and parents. The partnership also includes the use of Athlex by all 60 CHL teams to help improve their internal operations.
“The Canadian Hockey League is always trying to find ways to improve and through our partnership with Athlex we are confident that we’ve achieved that goal by simplifying our internal communications and offering our teams a platform that will enhance their operations,” said CHL President Dave Branch. “We received very positive feedback in our review of the QMJHL experience last year and are pleased that we’ve found a software that not only fits the needs for league administration but also the needs of all 60 teams across the CHL.”
The CHL will use Athlex to distribute important information to its members including news, results and files. All 60 CHL teams will have the opportunity to improve their internal operations by centralizing its communication, scheduling and information directly on their members’ mobile devices. Since launching a couple of years ago, Athlex has grown consistently through an adapted product and ability to develop strong relationships with clients.
“Nowadays, with all the distractions and commitments people have, it is important to be efficient in all areas of life.” said Julien Proulx, Athlex CEO and co-founder. “If an organization is not using a timesaving platform, it is definitely leaving important things on the table. The CHL, having to communicate with so many moving parts, clearly understood the need to improve its efficiency and we are very proud to partner with such a great organization. Being a canadian company, it is important for us to work with the biggest leagues and organizations in Canada."
With this announcement, Athlex continues to make noise in the hockey industry. In addition to the CHL, Athlex is used by many U Sports and NCAA teams.
