Since 2009, First Scout prides themselves in creating top-tier recruitment films for college-bound student athletes.

Lucky for them, they stumbled onto Connex by a quick Google search. After only using our automation tool for more than a year, they saved time in QuickBooks and almost doubled their revenue.
Jon Chastney, CEO & Co-Founder of First Scout started the company in 2009 when it was just a start-up idea. Along with Jon’s partner, Ben, they created First Scout to provide professional recruitment film services for college-bound student athletes. Having film to share with college coaches has become a recruiting essential and Jon and Ben have been filming college-bound athletes since 2009.

Connex felt like “turning on a switch”
Jon frequently says that his team was looking and doing research every day trying to find the solution that just felt right and checked all the boxes. When he spoke with Joe, the CEO and Founder of Sync with Connex, he immediately knew that First Scout had a “developmental arm” with the support side there and the implementation of our automation solution; Connex was the switch they were looking for.
