Looking Back, Looking Forward

As we say goodbye to 2012, we’d like to thank you for your continued support. It’s been an exciting year for SignMeUp. We launched the beta of SignMeUp+ and doubled our size! We look forward to rolling out RunFree, our new loyalty system, next month and expanding the SignMeUp+ feature set and reporting throughout 2013.
“We will continue to roll out SignMeUp+ features as we prepare to launch the full version 1.0. In addition, we will begin rollout of SignMeUp version 4.0…completely new, built from the ground up.”
We’re excited about the beta launch of SignMeUp+, a system designed specifically for specialty running retailers that provides them with a single view of their event and retail business. For 2013 we will continue to roll out SignMeUp+ features as we prepare to launch the full version 1.0. In addition, we will begin rollout of SignMeUp version 4.0, the latest version of our industry leading service that we initially established in 1999. Version 4.0 isn’t an update, add-on or patch; rather, it’s completely new, built from the ground up.
In late 2011 and early 2012 we added nine employees, expanding our company to 18. Our sales and marketing team now includes two-time Olympian Todd Williams and Keith Dowling, the first US Finisher of 2002 Boston Marathon. Todd and Keith are leading our charge into specialty running retail. Andy Kulina, formerly the Director of Loyalty at TSYS in the UK, designed the Run Free Miles program. Elizabeth Vincenty worked at Chicago Marathon and Fleet Feet Sports Chicago, Chris Leon is most recently from Clif Bar, and Joe Garza has more than 20 years’ experience in payment processing. Kelly Matthews, an AOL veteran and our new User Interface Designer, and Dave Crouch, a software engineer from Yale are great additions to our tech team. Jeremy Leithold-Patt, who has several years’ of direct customer support experience, rounds out our Support Department.
Happy Holidays from SignMeUp and all the best in the New Year. We look forward to working with you in 2013 and beyond.
