We sat down the other week with Iron Girl VP, Judy Molnar, to chat about how mobile technology has helped her and her staff manage activities and participants more efficiently… from anywhere!
Launched in 2004 with just two events, the Iron Girl brand has grown to 13 events nationwide, varying in distance from 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon to duathlon and triathlon. Judy says their 5K events register more and more people on-site and needed an efficient way to process on-site registrations, both for her staff and for the participant.
Iron Girl has successfully implemented our mobile app and branded credit card reader, ACTIVE On-Site, at a handful of events to help simplify and speed up the on-site check-in, registration and payment process.
She added that 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.”
We’re excited to see how this technology can transform the race event experience, from back-office to finish line! To learn more, check out the news we issued this morning.
We’re headed to Running USA 2013 later this month and will demo the app and credit card reader at our booth #101-102 – stop by! Also, our GM of Sports, Eric McCue, will chat about the latest in mobile tech trends on Tuesday, February 26 at 2 p.m. in the Regency Ballroom, Second Floor. We hope to see you there.
