Advanced Event Management Technology from ACTIVE Streamlines the Management of More Than 200,000 Games Bowled by 22,000 Women in 81 Days
SAN DIEGO, Calif. and RENO, Nev. — May 29, 2013 — The ACTIVE Network, Inc. (NYSE:ACTV), the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management (APM) solutions, today announced that the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) selected technology from ACTIVE to power the 2013 Women's Championships held April 12 through June 30 in Reno, Nevada. ACTIVE’s advanced tournament management solutions will make simple work of what would otherwise be the overwhelming task of managing an event of this complexity, size and scope: 22,000 women bowling more than 200,000 games over 81-days, in a bowling complex as long as two football fields.
“More than 100,000 people participate in our events each year and through ACTIVE’s technology, we can save time by streamlining online registration, team management and focus on truly enhancing our membership experience,” said Brian Lewis, managing director of tournaments at USBC.

• Easily manage and generate scoresheets
• Save time by offering bowlers self-service capabilities, like updating team names and members
• Integrate third party onsite scoring capabilities on one centralized platform

For bowlers, ACTIVE’s tournament management technology allows:
• Real-time visibility into lane availability and the ability to quickly select days of play
• Fast registration, check-in and the ability to pay online vs. filling in paper forms
• Access to scores online
• The ability to easily communicate with and manage team members
“With the USBC Women’s Championships, we’re providing some of the best technology to THE biggest adult participatory sport in the country,” said Eric McCue, general manager of Sports at ACTIVE Network. “Our partnership with USBC represents a culmination of work over the last year that will not only transform how USBC manages its tournaments, but also how they engage with their community of bowlers.”
