Bethesda, MD., Cincinatti, OH (PRWEB) January 22, 2008
Compete-At, the leading innovator of sport event management software, and Clubessential a leading provider of club management and web content management software, today announced that the companies have teamed to provide an integrated solution to all clubs looking to consolidate and streamline club and event management. Through this strategic partnership, the two companies will provide one cohesive system to manage club websites, membership management, member billing, club e-commerce, and event management.
"Clubsessential's software innovation and leadership in the golf club and yachting industry speaks for itself," says David Ross, CEO at Compete-At. "This innovation, coupled with Compete-At's robust event and regatta management platform, will be a powerful combination for clubs looking to consolidate IT management and resources onto one integrated platform."
Yacht clubs and curling clubs will realize immediate benefits from the consolidation of disparate systems. The result is one holistic solution for web content management, club management, membership management, and tournament and event management. Building on the success of bringing tailored event management to specific sports like sailing, curling, fishing and archery, Compete-At is also eager to rollout an integrated tournament management platform for the golfing industry that meshes seamlessly with the Clubessential platform.
In addition to innumerable benefits to clubs, this partnership also addresses the frustrations often felt by club members and event participants of maintaining multiple "user accounts". Through Compete-At's Passport product, event participants establish an online account or profile just once, and then use this profile for simple point-and-click event registration to any event hosted via Compete-At's Event Manager system. This Passport profile will now extend through to Clubessential platform, providing users with a single sign-on for all interactions with the club - whether that is registering for an event, or accessing their club membership account online.
