Feb 6, 2014 — Moorestown, NJ — RunSignUp, as part of its RunSignUp Go program, now offers its customers RaceJoy, a platform for race events to deliver a comprehensive mobile experience. RunSignUp is the leading innovator of online tools for races and running clubs encompassing registration, race day and running club membership. RaceJoy, created by TriPerta, enables race events to deliver advanced mobile experiences ranging from complete event information, sponsor advertisement and social media promotion to instant results and live GPS tracking. The two organizations bring together their common mission to improve the race experience through technology innovation by now offering a robust and seamless registration integration into a comprehensive mobile experience.
RunSignUp Go provides an open platform to bring together various parts of race day for race directors and timers through the integration of a variety of advanced technologies — whether for registration, results, bib assignment, mobile, race scoring or chip timing technology — ultimately advancing the experience of the runner community. RunSignUp is now offering RaceJoy as a key mobile option for events that wish to offer a more advanced mobile experience for their race. RunSignUp’s registration customers have the advantage of a seamless integration with RaceJoy where registration data will automatically load to RaceJoy versus requiring manual resources.
RaceJoy provides flexible options for race events of all sizes to deliver mobile conveniences and innovative features. Each event has its own race within the RaceJoy mobile app that includes key event information such as schedules, course maps and local places of interest, and offers mobile features such as instant results, progress updates, live GPS tracking and Send-a-Cheer. Events have the ability to customize and brand their event in RaceJoy and can opt for a package of in-App sponsor advertising. RunSignUp races will have the added convenience of immediately having their registration data load into RaceJoy for an integrated and user-friendly experience for the race participant. This allows participants to receive a confirmation email with a download link for the race’s mobile experience. When the participant uses the race in RaceJoy they find themselves immediately shown as a registered participant.
“There are great synergies between our two organizations. RunSignUp Go is focused on key strategic areas around the race; registration, results, bib assignment, mobile and scoring/timing. Where we bring races the advanced tools they need for these cornerstone areas of a race, RaceJoy’s brings these technologies forward in a convenient mobile framework. Both of our organizations are singularly focused on advancing the road race industry through technology, and that means our approach is going to be a little deeper and custom to the industry. RunSignUp Go selects premium technology choices for our customers to choose from and we are very pleased to now offer RaceJoy as an advanced mobile solution,” said Bob Bickel, Founder of RunSignUp.
“Our approach with RaceJoy is to bring together race related technologies into a single mobile experience for a given event. To do this successfully requires a willingness by related technology organizations to follow an open architecture approach and to take the extra efforts to integrate with one another. RunSignUp Go program demonstrates their keen insight into the importance of this approach and the overall growth it will have on the running industry. By offering their customers choices in technology, like RaceJoy, they can provide greater strategic value to their customers and, most importantly, improve the race experience for participants and spectators. We appreciate the opportunity to be part of RunSignUp Go and look forward to the innovations to follow,” said James Harris, Co-Founder of TriPerta (creators of RaceJoy).
