PHOENIX, AZ– Retain Technologies, the leading software solution for intercollegiate athletic departments, is thrilled to announce an extension of its partnership with Saint Francis University. 

Saint Francis will be using the Retain+ platform, part of Retain’s suite of products that offers team messaging, travel management, and robust collaboration tools to streamline the day-to-day operations of our 23 intercollegiate athletic teams.

"Effective communication is a vital component towards the efficient operations of all of our programs, I could not be more excited to partner with Retain in our quest to streamline our efforts to provide an optimal intercollegiate athletic experience and ultimately make the lives of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff easier. There is no doubt that the implementation of this platform will be a game changer for Red Flash Athletics,"  said Saint Francis Director of Athletics, James Downer.

Saint Francis' Office of Student-Athlete and Leadership Development began using Retain in the Fall 2020 semester to track study hall hours, missed class notifications and to track Frankie Cup events and will continue to use Retain for these matters and much more.

"Retain has been a tremendous partner with us from an academic support standpoint since we signed on with them during the Fall 2020 semester, with the addition of Retain+ we look forward to the ability to provide enhanced communication throughout the Department of Athletics with our student-athletes, coaches, and staff.  We are truly appreciative of the support from the team at Retain and especially CEO/Founder of Retain Technologies Kevin Collignon and Nikki Heinel. Both Kevin and Nikki came to campus last week to provide training to our coaches and staff, so we are ready to hit the ground running come the Fall semester,"  said Senior Associate Director of Athletics for Student-Athlete and Leadership Development, John Krimmel.
