“We’re constantly looking for new ways to make online sports registration safer, easier, and more affordable so our clients, who are typically volunteers, can devote more of their time, energy and other resources to their families and other commitments."
Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
SportsSignup, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of online registration and management solutions for amateur sports organizations, has facilitated over $100 million in secure credit card transactions for its customers across the U.S. and Canada.
SportsSignup CEO Anthony Bruno attributed the achievement to market demand for its online sports registration services, and the growing popularity of MySportsStore™ – Powered by Eastbay, an e-commerce service that allows client organizations to sell brand-name, custom apparel adorned with their “official” logo to coaches, parents, athletes and fans. This MySportsStore service, launched earlier this year, is part of an exclusive partnership between SportsSignup and Eastbay, a wholly owned subsidiary of Foot Locker, Inc.
“The whole purpose of SportsSignup is to provide an easy, safe, and reliable way for sports organizations and event directors to register their athletes and teams and track their accounts. The fact that we’ve passed this significant milestone is indicative of the confidence our customers have in our services, and in our people,” Mr. Bruno said. “We’re very grateful to have earned that confidence and look forward to strengthening our current client partnerships and welcoming more as we continue to grow.”
SportsSignup today also announced a new service, called easyMerchant™, which streamlines the process sports organizations must follow to begin processing credit card payments, granting them immediate access to full online registration capabilities.
“Credit card processing is a fundamental part of any online sports registration system,” Mr. Bruno said. “The SportsSignup registration platform is unique in that it provides multiple options for our customers to process credit card payments from their participants. easyMerchant provides our clients yet another way to collect registration fees based on their specific financial and operational requirements. ”
Mr. Bruno said SportsSignup’s volume enabled the company to negotiate affordable credit card processing rates on behalf of clients.
“Surpassing $100 million in credit card transaction volume is a result of our ongoing commitment to the principles on which we were founded,” Mr. Bruno said. “We’re constantly looking for new ways to make online sports registration safer, easier, and more affordable so our clients, who are typically volunteers, can devote more of their time, energy and other resources to their families and other commitments."
In addition to online registration and fee payment, team and roster management, and financial tracking/reporting, the SportsSignup system features a criminal background check management system for coaches and volunteers.
More than 1,300 sports organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada have entrusted their data management needs to SportsSignup.
