Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
SportsSignup, a leading provider of online sports registration and league management systems for sports organizations will acquire desktop sports software manufacturer Athletic Administrator, LLC for an undisclosed amount.
Athletic Administrator's software is used by hundreds of youth football organizations to manage their registration, roster management and fundraising activities. SportsSignup plans to convert Athletic Administrator's software to an online platform that will offer youth football organizations greater convenience and enhanced features. This, along with SportsSignup's existing football online registration system makes for a great service for football and cheer organizations.
SportsSignup will work with existing Athletic Administrator customers to move their existing data easily to the online platform in the coming months. The desktop software will remain fully operational until the transfer is complete.
"Athletic Administrator's youth football and cheerleading customers will continue to enjoy all of the outstanding features that are so critical to their organizations' success -- with the increased convenience and additional features available through SportsSignup's online system," said SportsSignup CEO Anthony Bruno.
"At the same time, the acquisition gives SportsSignup an enhanced feature set that will have an immediate positive impact on our ability to service the rapidly growing youth football and cheer markets," Mr. Bruno added.
William Brown, president of Athletic Administrator, said the sale is a win-win situation for all involved.
"Our devoted client base has always appreciated the level of detail and extensive reporting features available within our software, and with SportsSignup, the core functions of the program will not only be preserved, but enhanced by taking the system online," Mr. Brown said. "Given SportsSignup's powerful online registration software and the strong market reputation they have earned, we are very confident that both new and existing customers will be excited about the merger of our software with SportsSignup's suite of online services."
