Centre Region Parks & Recreation Agency joins the
In July 2007, the Centre Region Parks & Recreation Authority voted to authorize an agreement effective 1 Jan 08 for the Agency to become a member of The Active Network on-line community. As a result, CRPR has been using the Active.Net service to process all registrations and reservations.
As a part of that service, direct customer access (from HERE) is now available. Using Active’s remote software services, Centre Region Parks and Recreation now offers community members access to online registration to review, search, sign up and pay for recreational programs and activities around the clock. Requests for picnic pavilion reservations, sportfield permits, pool season passes are now accepted online. The service will also enable optional, activity/interest-specific email newsletters from CRPR, such as news from the senior center, nature center, sports, fitness, aquatics, fitness walking in the parks, etc.
"We’re pleased to provide software solutions to more than 1,500 parks and recreation organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada, automating critical membership and registration processes and enabling increased opportunities for community members to participate in recreational activities and programs through online registration access,” said Alex Barnetson, Senior VP of The Active Network, Inc. “Active has seen rapid adoption of our technology in community service organizations of all sizes that want to quickly, easily and affordably improve customer service capabilities and maximize community participation.”
