Virginia-based eCMMS (eCMMS.com), whose parent manufactures many of the world’s best-known cell phones, tablets, and video game consoles, has now assumed responsibility for the manufacturing of ProBatter’s pitching/bowling machines. The company’s original system was granted 13 U.S. patents for its revolutionary technology.eCMMS’s well-established expertise is expected to reap major benefits for ProBatter by offering a greatly streamlined system of production, as well as elevating quality control.
“Combining ProBatter’s leading-edge technology with eCMMS’s vast network of global manufacturing partners will yield enormous benefits to our customers,” said Adam Battersby.
“Working with them to provide significant refinements to all of our products will also yield greater product reliability and permit us to meet future demand. In addition, eCMMS’s economy of scale will allow us to become even more competitive with our pricing. We aim to make ProBatter affordable to any pro team, training facility, school, or college.”
As a part of its expansion and reimagination, ProBatter has also partnered with Ardent Sales Group of Greenville, NC (www.ardentgo.com) to further develop its international sales network and Roman Media Group, LLC of Morris Plains, NJ (www.romanmedia.com) to oversee marketing via social media and internet channels. It has also engaged MediaVista Public Relations (www.mediavistapr.com) to handle media outreach and company communications for ProBatter and its customers.
The most advanced training tool available for hitters working on improving their timing and mechanics, ProBatter combines the latest computer and video innovations to create a perfectly synchronized pitching simulation. Players who have trained with ProBatter say that it allows them to “Practice Like They Play™” getting the equivalent of live at-bats with a batting practice pitcher who can throw 100 mph — and who never gets tired or needs Tommy John surgery.
Over the years, major league teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinnati Reds, Boston Red Sox, and New York Mets, have purchased ProBatter simulators.
