SportsPilot Lands "Free+" Group Messaging Through RainedOut Partnership
Integration brings free group text messaging and more to SportsPilot customers
LEESBURG, Va., January 12, 2012 – RainedOut™, the leading provider of free event and group communication services, announced today that SportsPilot has partnered with them to integrate their FREE+ group messaging directly into SportsPilot’s league management service. The integration will provide SportsPilot’s clients the ability to instantly communicate time-sensitive information to all of their members via SMS text messaging, email and social media. The FREE+ aspect of RainedOut will allow SportsPilot, and all of their clients, to use the system as a fundraising tool. The more messages each league sends, the more potential to raise money from local sponsorships.
“SportsPilot is pleased to be partnering with RainedOut in order to integrate their text messaging capability into our league management service,” said Wes Hoffman, vice president of SportsPilot. “This will provide a much needed and convenient way for players, coaches, officials, and parents to stay informed about important league updates and scheduling changes. Many of our customers have been requesting this feature and RainedOut’s technology was an obvious choice as we continue to improve our league registration, scheduling, and communication technology.”
“Communication among large groups of people can be challenging, especially for volunteer-based sports organizations,” said Bryan Crum, vice president of marketing for RainedOut. “Our solution quickly gives SportsPilot additional functionality without putting a strain on their cash flow or development resources. We look forward to this partnership with a leader in league management services and to further distribute our award-winning group communication service to empower America’s amateur sports community.”
