Automated Bi-Directional Synchronization Enhances Timer Experience, Inviting Race Result Timers to Join Beta Testing for a January 2024 Launch
We are actively implementing a strategic integration with Race Result scoring technology. Keeping with our commitment to open technology, we are diligently working on establishing automated bi-directional synchronization of participant data between the two cutting-edge platforms. This collaborative effort aims to streamline and enhance the experience for timers managing events using RunSignup’s registration platform alongside Race Result scoring technology. The completed integration will launch in January 2024.
Seeking Beta Testers
RunSignup is currently inviting Race Result timers to participate as beta testers, offering valuable feedback for further refinement. Go to the Beta Testing Instructions to get step-by-step instructions and access an FAQ on how to integrate.
Open Approach to Technology
We recognize that not all timers will utilize our scoring software, and we wanted to ensure a seamless option for those who use our registration platform. James Harris, our EventDay Chief Technology Officer, is personally overseeing the design and development of this integration, drawing upon his past experience with RaceJoy to guarantee a smooth and efficient solution.
Bi-Directional Synchronization of Data
The integration process involves RunSignup leveraging Race Result’s API for seamless, real-time integration. The bi-directional synchronization ensures that modifications made on either platform are instantly mirrored across systems. This includes updates such as participant data changes, bib numbers, team names, custom questions, and membership data.
Race Result timers are invited to join this live webinar to be held on January 30. James Harris, RunSignup’s EventDay Chief Technology Officer, will provide a product demo and walk through the steps so you can apply this integration with RunSignup’s registration. A live Q&A session will follow the demonstration.
