Chances are you’re already using several different tools to run your sports program — MailChimp or Constant Contact for emails, Google spreadsheets or Excel for program metrics, a CRM for contact management. Toggling between all those programs is exhausting and it’s costing you time. Do you ever wish all these programs could just work together to get the job done, so you could get back to doing more of what you love? They can now. With a few simple clicks, you can now automate email list management, use your spreadsheet to organize logistics, even generate a dashboard for new business insights.

LeagueApps + Zapier

LeagueApps has added an easy-to-use tool, Zapier, which provides endless ways to connect LeagueApps to many of the administrative programs you use to get your job done.

“​Zapier is proud to have LeagueApps as its first sports tech partner,” says Matt Lukso, Partner Manager at Zapier. “Sport program managers can add new members to email marketing lists, send welcome messages to new registrants, organize teams on shared spreadsheets, and more without manually entering any data or writing a single line of code. Ultimately, this reduces repetitive work so they can spend more time doing the activities they enjoy.”

Zapier Rhymes with Happier — Here’s Why:

Right now you’re using LeagueApps to manage programs and collect payments and important player information. As a next step, you might be exporting that data out of LeagueApps into other tools, like MailChimp, Google Spreadsheets, Excel etc. Once you link with Zapier you can save that step entirely, automatically filling in your spreadsheets, or updating your email lists. Zapier also can save you steps in automating your social media.

How it Works?

A “Zap” is a blueprint for a task you want to do over and over, such as exporting LeagueApps Members and importing them into an Email Service, like MailChimp or Constant Contact.

You can mix and match over 1,100 popular online apps and tools (including LeagueApps) to eliminate hours of manual work and reduce the risk of human errors.
