St. Louis, MO – June 1, 2020 – Counsilman-Hunsaker and the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) announced last week that they have entered into a partnership to support drowning prevention and water safety through Counsilman-Hunsaker’s HydroApps™ applications. The partnership supports aquatic professionals in making a positive impact on their communities through enhanced risk management and water safety, to serve and enrich the aquatic experience.
The AOAP’s goal is to bring together professionals from all aspects of aquatics to network, educate, advocate, enrich, and improve the aquatic industry across the United States and internationally. Counsilman-Hunsaker, whose mission is “Aquatics for Life”, has been providing the aquatic community with thought leadership for fifty years including engineering audits, feasibility studies, design, operations consulting, and HydroApps.
HydroApps is Counsilman-Hunsaker’s product line of web-based applications that are intended to help pool owners and operators run their pools better by lowering risk, reducing costs, and enhancing safety. Counsilman-Hunsaker introduced HydroApps to the market in 2017 with Facility Manager and Pool Test, expanding the available offerings each year to include Lifeguard Manager and their latest web-based application, Schedule Manager.
The new partnership seeks to promote the safety and sustainability of aquatic facilities through the use of HydroApps. “With the current trends in technology improving the ability to access information, and the changing landscape of aquatic operations, digital tools will become a standard for all aquatic facilities. The benefits of using HydroApps can and will help improve safety and sustainability of pools,” says Kevin Post, Principal at Counsilman-Hunsaker.
“The AOAP Board of Directors, and myself, are extremely excited about this partnership!”, stated Juliene Hefter, AOAP Executive Director. AOAP members also receive a 15% discount off the purchase of any HydroApps as part of the partnership, which also includes sponsorship of the annual Association of Aquatic Professionals conference.
