The ACTIVE Network, Inc. (NYSE:ACTV), the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ (APM) solutions, announced ACTIVE On-Site, a mobile app and branded credit card reader to help race directors simplify and speed up the on-site check-in, registration and payment process. By integrating with the Active Works® platform in real-time, race staff can manage their activities and participants more efficiently from anywhere.
Endurance events like Iron Girl already have successfully implemented the app and credit card reader. Judy Molnar, Vice President of Iron Girl, says their 5K events register more and more people onsite and needed an efficient way to process on-site registrations, both for her staff and for the participant.
“Race day can get pretty hectic and ACTIVE’s On-Site check-in, registration and payment processing technology have taken a lot of the stress out of race day morning,” Molnar said. “Instead of dealing with paper forms, our timer can download data with a click of a button, our volunteers can be out on the course to ensure everything is going smoothly and our staff can concentrate on creating a great event experience. Our participants also love it because we have effectively vanquished long lines on race day morning – they can show up to the race, swipe their credit card and go.”
With ACTIVE On-Site, race staff can use mobile devices to:
- Check-in individuals and teams
- Register participants onsite
- Process credit card payments quickly and safely with ACTIVE’s encrypted credit card reader
- Assign bib numbers, view T-Shirt sizes and find team names
- Reduce manual data entry for the timer by syncing with Active Works in real-time
- View reports within the app to see total number of registrations, number of spots available and total number of check-ins
“ACTIVE On-Site is a proprietary technology developed specifically for the race director that unifies multiple data points to enable a secure exchange of information across multiple platforms,” said Eric McCue, general manager of sports at ACTIVE Network. “By taking race registration mobile, race directors can increase participation and drive additional revenue more efficiently any time they are face-to-face with a potential customer. We look forward to seeing how this technology will transform the race event experience, from back-office to finish line.”
ACTIVE Network will attend the upcoming Running USA 2013 conference from February 24-26 in Savannah, Georgia. To learn more about ACTIVE’s technology, visit booth #101-102 to demo On-Site and hear the latest in mobile tech trends at Eric McCue’s discussion on Tuesday, February 26 at 2 p.m. in the Regency Ballroom, Second Floor.
The app and credit card reader is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and most Android devices. To download, visit the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play. For more information, visit http://www.activeendurance.com/on-site.htm.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
