Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) April 11, 2008
Compete-At, the leading innovator of sport event management software, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Coral Reef Apparel, a leading apparel and accessories supplier, to provide a turnkey solution for event organizers who wish to sell event and club specific apparel online.
"Compete-At's Event Manager platform empowers sport event organizers to run streamlined events and tournaments - from staff and volunteer management, online registration and payment to sponsorship fulfillment" explains Tom Berger, Chief Marketing Officer for Compete-At. "With this Coral Reef partnership, we now give them the power to simply pick products and flip on a fully functional e-commerce store to sell event specific custom embroidered and screened products. This correlates to increased event revenue and increased event exposure for our customers."
The integrated offering will allow event organizers, a simple online interface to choose which products they wish to sell online for any given event or club. The apparel can be embroidered with supplied custom artwork for events and will also allow event participants and spectators additional personalization during checkout. The new store integrating Coral Reef's product offering will be made available to Compete-At Event Manager customers in the third quarter of 2008. In the short term, existing customers can benefit from full access to the Coral Reef's catalog to supplement online store sales for upcoming events by contacting Coral Reef directly. Additionally, Coral Reef provides on-site apparel sales for regattas and fishing tournaments in the continental US.
"There's plenty of overlap between our customers, especially in the sailing market," says George Cannon, President of Coral Reef Apparel. George continues, "As the premier on-site provider of apparel sales for regattas in the US, partnering with Compete-At gives us a robust distribution channel via their online Event Manager platform. The new point-and-click store will be nothing but a win-win situation for our combined customer base and will give us great growth and exposure into other sport markets such as fishing, golf, archery and curling."
