Moorestown, NJ and Boulder, CO – PreRace dbaGetEvent.com will be helping existing race registration customers migrate to the RunSignUp platform. GetEvent is transitioning to a new business helping connect organizations buy and sell race events, and will be discontinuing their race registration system once customers are successfully transitioned by the end of the year.
“We view our customers as family and want to make sure they are well taken care of as we transition our business,” said Jorge Espinoza, Founder and CEO of GetEvent. “We have been watching RunSignUp become the most comprehensive and easy to use registration system for races over the past several years. I approached RunSignUp about helping with this transition, and they have made this very simple for our customers. I feel comfortable our customers will be in good hands.”
The transition has been initiated with a communication plan to help each customer move to RunSignUp with minimal disruption. Customers will move from a per registrant pricing model to RunSignUp’s per transaction pricing model – bringing lower overall costs for processing. RunSignUp has similar or superior capabilities including a free race website for each race, as well as store, donation, fundraising and team capabilities. RunSignUp also has strong marketing features for races to promote themselves with free integrated email, Facebook integration, Referral and Affiliate programs, ad tracking, and special pricing like Coupons and Team Pricing.
One of the features RunSignUp has for transitioning races is the ability to import previous years of participant data so that comparison reports can work. This allows races to compare how many people are registered X days before their race with previous years.
“We were very honored to have Jorge call on us to help with GetEvent’s customer transition,” said Bob Bickel, Founder of RunSignup. “We have worked with other race registration companies and customers as the industry consolidates. We look forward to working with the GetEvent team to transition races smoothly.”
