The New RaceDay Matrix
Over the past 20 years, the RaceDay Event Management and Software team have spent time around 1000’s of events trying to understand how the components of successful events intertwine. For this experience we have developed the new RaceDay Matrix.
RaceDay Software 2.0 – Out of that experience, and with the input of event staff, officials, and timing companies, we developed the RaceDay Software 2.0. The goal – to manage registration and results at events.
Event Management – RaceDay Event Management staff worked to understand how an event is put together from conception to post event reports. We have worked with events, ranging from 10 to thousands of athletes – across the United States and Europe to gain knowledge that has allowed us to continually add pieces into the puzzle of what makes a great event great.
Website Support – A great event can only be a great event when athletes know about it. RaceDay will assist in the creation of a top notch website to effectively market your event. And that includes across social media platforms.
Event Marketing – Don’t have an established athlete base? RaceDay can help source and distribute information to potential participants, utilizing email and social media marketing strategies.
RaceDay Software 2.0
How does it work? What are the changes?
RaceDay Software started out as an Excel based program powered by VBA. This allowed us to develop a software package that managed registration and results for all types of events, from a simple road race to a stage race or omnium. This approach though effective did have some limitations.
Moving forward RaceDay Software will move into a stand-alone software program that will be a more robust and stable software package and the heart beat of the New RaceDay Matrix . As with the previous version, RaceDay will still will provide the same functions but with the increased functionally that Event Directors have requested. RaceDay will have a fully integrated system: Website (Social Media), Advertising and Event Marketing Systems, and Event Management Systems.
Website/Webpage Support (Social Media)
Take a minute and ask yourself these two questions. What is it that makes an athlete want to complete in an event? What drives a sponsor to write the check to your event?
We asked these two questions of both athletes and sponsors over the last few years and have come up with what we think are the answers. An athlete’s first impression of an event is the information they can find through websites and social media. Sponsors want to know how many media impression that they are receiving for their dollars.
RaceDay Matrix will help Event Directors solve this problem easily and cost effectively. From a webpage located on our site to a stand-alone webpage, we can provide this.
From pre-event setup to post event metrics we can provide a turnkey solution.
