July 21, 2016 – Moorestown, NJ – As a part of the new RaceDay Go Platform from RunSignUp, the new RaceDay SignUp Kiosk App is now available in Beta. This app provides a native Apple and Android app designed for race day signups. The app can be found on your phone’s App Store by searching for “RunSignUp”.
The new app now supports a secure credit card swiper to speed the signup process. RunSignUp has worked with a swipe device manufacturer to build a fully encrypted card reader; this means when the card is swiped, the actual device is encrypting the data, and the only place the data can be unencrypted is on RunSignUp’s secure, PCI-compliant cloud platform. The swipe device will soon be available on Amazon, but if you are interested in getting an early device, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. RunSignup is interested in initial feedback on the devices.
The devices plug into phones and tablets via the earphone jack and are heavier duty than the Square devices that many people are familiar with. They cost over $50 each to manufacture; RunSignup will be partially subsidizing the cost.
Over time, RunSignUp will continue introducing mechanisms to make kiosks more convenient. Here is an early demonstration of the app:
