Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
ZapEvent is pleased to announce that it has streamlined its online event registration process by offering USA Triathlon membership verification in real time.
This new technology allows athletes who are registering for sanctioned events to more easily purchase a USA Triathlon annual membership or one-day license, thus eliminating the need to carry cash or a USA Triathlon membership card to pre-race packet pick-up.
The newly launched system simplifies event registration for all parties impacted — the athlete, the race director, the registration engine and USA Triathlon.
"Our #1 goal at ZapEvent is make life easier for our race directors and their registrants. By integrating our registration process with real time USAT membership validation, we’re one step closer for our multi-sport clients," says Jeff Wedren, Managing Partner of ZapEvent.
This technology platform is the result of months of planning and execution by USA Triathlon’s information technology and membership departments, who worked alongside each event registration engine to develop a template that best fits each company.
If not already registered as an annual member of USA Triathlon, athletes can purchase a $45 one-year annual membership through USATriathlon.org. The benefits of membership include: subscriptions to USA Triathlon Magazine and the Multisport Zone weekly e-newsletter; exclusive sponsor discounts, giveaways & contests; inclusion in the official USA Triathlon National Rankings; the opportunity to compete in USA Triathlon National Championships; the ability to avoid $12 one-day license fees at races; automatic excess accident insurance coverage; and more.
ZapEvent provides a reliable, safe, and flexible set of online registration tools that create a more pleasant and easy-to-use process for both event directors and their customers. Hundreds of organizations rely on ZapEvent’s online event registration management services to oversee the data and transactions for their event registrations, donations, membership dues, and conference fees.
