Marketwired

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - August 15, 2013) -  The ACTIVE Network, Inc. (ACTV), the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ (APM) solutions, announced that Redwood City as well as the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles, have chosen ACTIVE Net™ as the technology solution to help streamline operations and enable their organizations to better engage and serve their communities comprising a total of more than 10 million(1) people in California. ACTIVE Net is a cloud-based platform that helps organizations to automate their operations and allow their staff to focus on providing their members with easy access to activities and services.

"We chose ACTIVE Net as we believe this solution will improve the in-facility experience for our staff and greatly enhance the way our members experience us beyond the four walls of our facility," said Jennifer Bolger, Vice President, Membership and Healthy Living, YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles. "Engaging the community outside of our facilities is a true game-changing approach to the way we deliver operations today. It makes sense to choose a partner with the tools, experience and commitment to help us get there." 

"For more than a decade, ACTIVE Network has partnered with community organizations to better understand and help manage the needs of their members, and we're excited to welcome Redwood City to our family of more than 300 cities in California," said Ram Krishnan, Senior Vice President of Communities at ACTIVE Network. "Their selection of ACTIVE gives greater access to local citizens looking for activities in parks and open space areas, as well as easy access to services such as renting community buildings, reserving park locations, or signing up for community classes."

With ACTIVE Net, organizations serving communities are able to:

  • Use one integrated system for community outreach, registrations, and facility management
  • Make informed decisions using comprehensive analysis of community participation
  • Facilitate high-demand, high-volume registration for seasonally available recreation activities
  • Reduce dependency on technology infrastructure and focus on community engagement
