Looking for a new way to connect with fans of your favorite college sports teams?
Augeo has released a new fan engagement mobile and web platform that will connect collegiate sports fans and allow alums to share and follow each other and the teams that root for on social media.
So far, over 1,000 Duke enthusiasts have already registered for Fan-I-Am since the launch at the Blue Devil's football home opener on August 31, 2013.
Fan-I-Am is all about following your favorite college football, basketball, or volleyball team and keeping up-to-date.
“We developed Fan-i-Am to be a mobile first fan engagement platform. We felt by focusing on the advancements in mobile technology, it would allow fans to connect with ease and engage with other fans everywhere,” explained Mike Knoop, VP of Strategic Relationships at Augeo. “Through the Duke Fan-i-Am application, Blue Devil fans can engage in a variety of real time activities including the connection of Facebook and Twitter accounts and uploading photos to display in the stadium during games. Fans will also be able to "check-in" around various campus and merchant locations in Durham, North Carolina. All activities through the app have point values, allowing fans to earn access to unique and valuable prizes and rewards.”
Yes, even with all the fun you are having, you can win prizes.
Prizes like sideline tickets, fan merchandise, signed memorabilia and more.
Fan-I-Am has debuted at Duke University, but it's bound to spread across the country. Schools like Appalachian State have picked up on the idea.
“By delivering a more dynamic and accessible app, we are helping Duke fans across the country to connect with each other, compete for free prizes and engage with their Duke teams,” commented David Kristal, CEO of Augeo. “We are thrilled to launch with the loyal Duke fan base and the school's outstanding tradition of athletic excellence.”
Augeo's apps are about developing loyalty. They work with over 400 clients domestically and internationally, in industries like telecommunications, financial services, sports and entertainment, distribution, foodservices, retail and home improvement.
