Nov. 5, 2013 – Moorestown, NJ and Fremont, MI – RunSignUp and The Race Director are pleased to announce a full integration for Participant and Result download, upload and syncing with the release of The Race Director 2014. RunSignUp is a leading Race Registration service and The Race Director a leading race management, scoring and results system used by over half of the timers in the United States. The integration will be shown live at The Race Director Training on November 6, 2013 at the Road Race Management Conference in Florida.
While many timers use the systems together today, the burden of transferring files manually can lead to data syncing issues. This new integration allows The Race Director users to easily sync Participant and Result data between the systems as shown in this diagram.
There are three components to the integration:
- Import Participants from RunSignUp to The Race Director
- Update and Add New Participants in The Race Director and Upload them to RunSignUp
- Send Results Immediately to RunSignUp or My-Finish for near real time Result Listings on the Web, Mobile, TXT and Email.
“Over half of the races that use RunSignUp have a timer who uses The Race Director to manage, score and post results for their races,” said Bob Bickel, Founder of RunSignUp. “This new integration will make life easier for hundreds of timers, thousands of races and hundreds of thousands of runners waiting for their results!”
“RunSignUp has been a good partner to work with on this collaborative effort,” said Roger Bradshaw, Founder of The Race Director. “This integration should help many of our timers deliver accurate information to their races since it greatly eases the burden of syncing and participant and result distribution.”
