V 1.0 is released on Oct. 19, 2016.
As a part of the new RaceDay Go Platform, the new RaceDay SignUp Kiosk App is now available. As we reviewed several weeks ago, this provides a native Apple and Android app designed for race day signups. Just search “RunSignUp” on your phone’s App Store. There is also a web version available to run on notebooks and Chromebooks in a Chrome browser – https://signupapp.runsignup.com.
The new app now supports a secure credit card swiper (purchase here) to speed the signup process. We have worked with a swipe device manufacturer to build a fully encrypted card reader. This means when the card is swiped, the actual device is encrypting the data. The only place the data can be unencrypted is on RunSignUp’s secure, PCI-compliant cloud platform. The swipe device is available now by clicking here.
The devices that plug into phones and tablets via the earphone jack cost us over $50 each to manufacture, and we will be partially subsidizing the cost. As you can see, they are heavier duty than the Square devices that many people are familiar with. For laptops and Chromebooks, we also have an encrypted USB card swiper.
Here is an early demonstration of the app:
