OMAHA, Neb.– From Now On, an Omaha-based leader in mobile app technology for fan engagement, has been selected to provide the official mobile app for the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Heartland Chevy Dealers tournament.

From Now On, a wholly-owned subsidiary of local IT talent and solutions firm Client Resources Inc. (CRi), will build and deploy the Pinnacle Bank Championship app via their FanX platform. FanX is a mobile marketing and communication platform designed to enhance live event experiences for attendees through timely, relevant and contextual updates and content. The Pinnacle Bank Championship app will include event schedules, course & local area maps, player information, sponsored offers, event history, tournament notifications and more.

“We are excited to have an app to enhance the experience for everyone at the event, from the spectator to volunteer,” said Chris Wendlandt, Senior Vice President of Pinnacle Bank. “With the assistance of From Now On, we are creating a unique piece for our event that can set us apart and take us to the next level. We are looking forward to fans enjoying the app at the event.”  

The app is believed to be one of the first of its kind for a Web.com Tour event. The agreement for the mobile app runs for five years, with an option to opt-out after the first year.

“We are proud to be working alongside the Pinnacle Bank Championship in establishing Omaha as a premier destination on the Web.com Tour for years to come,” said Sue Thaden, President & CEO of From Now On and CRi. “Our goal is to help take the Pinnacle Bank Championship to the next level of fan experience, revenue generation, and brand identity. Knowing what a great partner they have been so far, I have confidence we will be able to achieve those goals.”

Other notable event apps launched by From Now On include the 2017 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping & FEI World Cup™ Dressage Finals app, in partnership with the Omaha Equestrian Foundation, as well as an app for the 2016 Military Bowl, in partnership with the DC Touchdown Club. From Now On has also deployed fan apps for schools throughout the country, including the University of Nebraska Omaha.

The Pinnacle Bank Championship app is now available for free download via the App Store and Google Play beginning June 6th.

The upcoming Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Heartland Chevy Dealers tournament is a stop on the PGA’s Web.com Tour and will be held July 17th – 23rd at the Club at Indian Creek.
