OMAHA, Neb.— From Now On, an emerging provider of mobile app platforms in both sports and education industries, announced today a multi-year partnership with Louisiana Tech University to provide the mobile application FanX for Bulldog and Lady Techster fans.

FanX is a fan engagement platform designed to help schools like Louisiana Tech enhance the game day experience and create deeper engagement with their fans. FanX will connect Bulldog and Lady Techster fans with their favorite players and teams by providing bios, scoring updates, team insights and much more that will enrich their experience at all stages of the game. The application will also provide targeted promotions, ticket purchasing ability, event schedules, and support for audio and video broadcasts.

“Working with From Now On has been an exceptional experience already. From the very beginning, we’ve wanted to develop an app that sets our brand apart. Overall, I knew From Now On would provide us the ability to be innovative in how we market our athletics teams to the Louisiana Tech fan base,” said David Pillen, Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing at Louisiana Tech University.

Additionally, the application will act as a new promotional tool for the athletic department.

“Our philosophy is to encourage, promote, and engage in all that we do from a marketing standpoint,” Pillen said. “We wanted something that would be unique and functional for our fans and provide them an exceptional experience while at the same time be cost effective for us as a department. We look forward to a great partnership and working together to develop one of the best mobile apps within the athletic industry.”

Through the FanX platform, From Now On will assist Louisiana Tech Athletics in achieving their fan engagement goals and will aid in building deeper relationships with the fan community.

“We are very excited about the partnership with Louisiana Tech University,” said Sue Thaden, President & CEO of From Now On. “Throughout our conversations, they have expressed a sincere desire to grow engagement among their fan base through more interactive experiences. We’re thrilled by the opportunity to work with a forward-thinking school like Louisiana Tech to help them achieve their athletic department goals and look forward to getting it great for Bulldog and Lady Techster fans.”                                                                           

In addition to the platform license, the agreement includes professional services for implementation, launch and marketing plan support, staff training and ongoing adoption coaching.
