SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – July 11 2011 – The Active Network, Inc., the leading provider of organisation-based cloud computing applications, has been named as the preferred registration management software and hosted technology provider for Triathlon Australia, the national sporting organisation for triathlon in Australia. Active Network is the developer and host of the new Triathlon Australia website that launched earlier this month and is managing individual and affiliated club memberships. This strategic alliance marks a key milestone as Active Network expands its global presence.
"Active Network is a well-respected leader in the provision of technology for the endurance sport market and was an obvious choice to handle the launch of our new website and membership management needs," said Peter Hedge, president of Triathlon Australia. "Working together, we can have a significant impact on growing the sport of triathlon in Australia and driving more value for our members and affiliated clubs."
The new Triathlon Australia website includes enhanced interactive functionalities such as a detailed event calendar and an Active.com® Trainer program tool. It also allows members and event participants to schedule and register for activities and events, pay fees and view up-to-date event information online. With the Active Network fully-hosted solution, Triathlon Australia and its affiliate associations and clubs can manage all their event and membership operations in-house on a single platform without incurring steep equipment and IT costs.
"Australia represents one of the leading nations in the sport of triathlon," said Dave Alberga, chief executive officer at Active Network. "This partnership allows Triathlon Australia to expand its service delivery offerings to more than 10,000 members and over 160,000 event participants, and continue to grow the footprint of the endurance sport market."
Triathlon Australia joins a number of sports national governing bodies which already partner with Active Network in Asia-Pacific, including Triathlon New Zealand and Tennis Australia as well as renowned events such as Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival and Ironman Australia.
