NFL collaboration software looks for a win with businesses

Fred O'Connor | Sept. 16, 2014
A collaboration platform that was initially developed to help professional sports teams share video on tablets is now trying to score with businesses.

PlayerLync offers a cloud-based version of the enterprise software, but customers prefer to upload the software to their own servers, Paulsen said.

"Our customers already have some level of video content they host somewhere. Instead of having to move all that content to another cloud provider if we were hosting it, they'd rather put our software next to their content so the transfer happens much more quickly," Paulsen said.

PlayerLync is available for tablets running Apple's iOS and Windows Phone 8.1. Businesses told PlayerLync they need the software to fit in with their existing software environments, which favor Apple and Windows systems over Android, said Paulsen.

Other PlayerLync features include allowing users to capture and share video from the tablet, add audio and written comments to a video, include links in the tablet application to websites pertinent to an employees' job and permitting managers to see who viewed users. The software costs between US$1.00 to $30 per user, per month.

Business that are using PlayerLync include fast food chain Chipotle Mexican Grill and television network Starz.
