Active Network's Parks and Recreation Software Consolidates Multiple Operating Channels for Minneapolis and Saint Paul
MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - September 7, 2010) - DigitalTown, Inc. (OTCBB: DGTW) congratulates its strategic ally, Active Network, on its recent contract with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, the two largest parks and recreation organizations in Minnesota. DigitalTown and Active Network signed a Strategic Alliance agreement in September of 2009 and have recently renewed it.
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) has over 18 million annual visits to its 182 park properties. Active Network's Software as a Service (SaaS) model allows MPRB to consolidate all registration data history into a single database, enabling them to customize reports, access real-time activity information and scheduling, utilize ecommerce capabilities, offer point of sale purchasing, and much more. MPRB's online visitors now benefit from improved league scheduling and registration, facility viewing and booking, and secure payment options.
"We have invested substantial resources in our alliance with Active and we anticipate reaping significant benefit with the re-launch of our Spirit Sites this fall, powered by Active," stated Richard Pomije, CEO of DigitalTown. "This contract with MPRB is illustrative of the types of synergies we anticipate over the coming years between our companies as we provide syndication of consumer information from several of Active's divisions. We look to continue our collaboration with Active and create rich, hyper-local communities integrating content from Active with our other partners to create a unique consumer experience."
