Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
Compete-At, the leading innovator of sport event management software, today announced a partnership agreement with Curl BC, the governing curling association in British Columbia that oversees 91 clubs and approximately 30,000 members, to provide an end-to-end sport event and member management platform for all regional, inter-regional, and provincial Playdowns.
Curl BC will use Compete-At’s comprehensive Event Management and Membership Management platforms to run its events and manage its member organization. Using Compete-At’s software, Curl BC will be able to minimize the paperwork and administrative tasks of their events by offering online registration to playdown participants, integrating scoring and results postings, and customizing entry requirements amongst other key benefits. Compete-At’s Membership Management platform will provide easier organizational management by enabling online registration and registrant communications via an Email notification engine. Furthermore, Compete-At’s product suite is accessible from anywhere using a web browser, thus empowering and increasing the efficiency of users by allowing them to work when it is convenient for them.
Registrants of Curl BC will receive a Compete-At Passport Profile account at no cost. Passport allows Curl BC members to manage their competitive profile securely online, maintain a history of past events, store required entry documentation, and register for playdowns. With just a few clicks, athletes can register for events on Curl BC’s website, Compete-At’s website or any club’s website using Event Manager.
“As the governing organization for the curling clubs of British Columbia, it is crucial for us to be able to manage our events and member clubs easily and effectively,” said Terry Vandale, Curl BC President. “Compete-At provides us with a comprehensive, turnkey solution to the administrative side of managing our events so that we can focus on the actual competitions and ensure that they run smoothly. It also gives us instant online event registration capabilities. The Membership Management platform will help us to oversee and organize the 30,000 members in our group and provide us with valuable insight as to the growth of the organization from the top down.”
“Compete-At is thrilled to be partnering with Curl BC,” said David Ross, Chief Executive Officer Compete-At. “Compete-At is currently providing robust technology solutions to numerous curling associations and clubs including Curl NOCA and USA Curling. The addition of Curl BC can only help drive more innovation and technology advancements into our product suite, which in turn benefits all curling associations and clubs.”
Curl BC is extending the benefits of this partnership to all member facilities by providing the Event Manager and Member Management solutions for them to use as well. Each club, regardless of size, now has robust and proven technology at their disposal to manage events and members, accept online entries, build club websites and even sell club apparel. There will be no up-front costs to any club and no IT resources needed. A discounted rate for both Membership Manager and Event Manager will be communicated to all Curl BC member facilities in the coming months.
