San Juan, PR – May 13, 2009 – Edikon Corporation has developed a state-of-the-art web-based registration system for the “5k En Familia de San Patricio” held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The race is an annual fundraiser event that benefits the Hospital del Niño de Puerto Rico, the only pediatric healthcare facility in Puerto Rico that offers prolonged care and recovery to patients from 0 to 21 years old.
The web-based registration system allowed event organizers to register all race participants in a more convenient and efficient way. The registration system handles logistics such as assignment of unique bib numbers, RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip assignment and validation, and tracking of each participant’s time and results during the race. The seamless web-based process not only allowed the atomization of all the logistics, but also propelled the race’s overall registration outreach by providing a decentralized, 24×7 outlet for participants to register.
“Edikon provided us with a highly efficient management process. Thanks to this, we were able to quickly register, assign bib numbers, classify runners into their respective categories, and track the performance of over 2,000 participants in a much more accurate and simple way than in previous years, all without any chance of error”, said Miguel A. González, President of the organizing committee. “We feel honored to have them as our partner, their assertive technical knowledge, and outstanding service and support have elevated this event to a higher level. Our new ability to handle a larger number of participants in such a simple way is a welcome prospect for next year.”, concluded González.
