Brian Torres of Elite Racing Systems commented on the reduction of labor, “The Series Scoring feature in RunSignUp means no more countless spreadsheets and hours of sorting through registration data to match participants. RunSignUp has simplified this process by integrating registration, results, and series scoring.”
The new Series Scoring system can be used by existing race series’; it also opens the door for Race Management and Timing Companies to promote participation in more of their events by creating a Race Series with minimal additional labor. RunSignUp provides widgets that allow organizations to host all series scores and standings on their own website, with styling to match their brand. Torres commented, “They provide a great looking widget to display on our webpage that gives all series participants their current standings. This new feature will provide a great all-around experience in scoring the Jersey Shore Golden Grand Prix.”
