RealResponse, a company founded by former college basketball player David Chadwick, has forged a deal with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to use its technology platform to enable whistleblowers to report concerns about possible doping cases.

The technology allows athletes and employees to submit anonymous real-time reports of workplace discrimination, doping violations, sex abuse, and other concerns via text.

The platform’s privacy features enable administrators to collect more information from whistleblowers while allowing them to maintain their anonymity.

RealResponse also enables organizations to maintain records of their response to complaints.

The company already has signed deals with USA Gymnastics, the NFL Players Association, the National Women's Soccer League, and more than 100 university sports programs.
