“We saw an opportunity to tie together several great platforms around one universal Athlinks data set. We’re partnering with RunSignUp because we believe we’re each the best at what we do, and by bringing those platforms together, we can offer something truly unique to our Customers – this was an easy decision for us,” said Troy Busot, founder of Athlinks and VP of Product Development for ChronoTrack.
“We have so many mutual timing customers with ChronoTrack. These timers have been wanting better integration between our platforms as well as The Race Director and RunScore. The new ChronoTrack Chip Bundle will be very cost effective for timers, enabling them to offer a fuller set of services to the races they time and manage”, said Bob Bickel, founder of RunSignUp.
