Compete-At, the leading innovator of sport event management software, today announced that USA Archery, the governing body for the sport of archery in the United States, has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Compete-At to provide online event and membership management.
USA Archery will use Compete-At's comprehensive Event Management platform to manage the 124th US National Target Championship. USA Archery will extend the benefits of the Compete-At Platform to all member clubs and archers. Event Manager, a 100% hosted application, will provide USA Archery with a hosted solution to manage all event logistics including a comprehensive calendar, online registration and payment processing, archer notifications, results posting, photo galleries and more. Archers will benefit from a simple registration process for tournaments at local, regional and national tournaments with a few short clicks on the http://www.Compete-At-Archery.com or http://www.USAArchery.org websites. Through Compete-At's Membership Manager product, USA Archery will have immediate insight into the strength and growth of its membership. Event Manager shares data seamlessly with Membership Manager so that local clubs can manage individual members while providing an omniscient view of members from the top down to USA Archery.
"This partnership with Compete-At fills a huge technology gap that provides us with a robust Event Management platform and also a turnkey solution for managing our members," says Bradley Camp, Chief Executive Officer of USA Archery. "Compete-At's knowledge of archery, coupled with their use of technology to move us forward was immediately apparent the first time we viewed a demo of their solution. The bottom line is that we can be up and running our National events with a solution that was built to meet the specific needs of archery."
Event and Membership Manager provide local clubs and national organizations a technology upgrade path without additional IT resources, staff or additional infrastructure upgrades.
"As an archer myself, I'm thrilled to provide our suite of products to USA Archery and look forward to a long-term relationship," says David Ross, CEO at Compete-At and former Junior State Champion in Texas. "Organizations expect more than a do-it-yourself web registration form these days. This partnership with USA Archery is affirmation that our unique approach to sport event management is resonating in the marketplace."
