SignUpGenius Releases Payments and Pro Features

Charlotte, N.C. – February 18, 2013 – SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up service for free volunteer and event management, announced today the release of two major upgrades following a year of stellar growth.  Users now have the ability with SignUpGenius Payments to collect money on sign ups, enabling them to coordinate fundraisers, group gifts, ticketed events, product sales and event registration with greater ease. In addition, users are able to upgrade to SignUpGenius Pro, an add-on suite of advanced features designed for power users and large organizations.

“Adding the ability to accept payments on sign ups simplifies our users’ volunteer management efforts in tremendous ways,” says SignUpGenius President Dan Rutledge. “ Whether it’s as basic as room moms no longer having to collect cash that students bring in for teacher gifts or as complex as an entire school being able to manage their capital campaign online, SignUpGenius Payments enhances our reputation as a one stop solution for every organization’s sign up needs.”

The additional release of SignUpGenius Pro is in response to the evolution of the company’s expansion from individual users to large organizations. Once users like Anne-Marie Lofton from Dallas, TX discover the site works so well, they bring the bigger groups they are connected with on board. "I used SignUpGenius for our school book fair, which requires dozens of volunteers. Scheduling the volunteers was a thing of BEAUTY because of this website!” says Lofton. “I have recommended this website to everyone else in our PTA as well as to our church, and am thrilled to see them getting the same great results for sign ups both simple and complex."

Power users are now able to set up multiple administrators, collect event registration information with more custom fields, and store a larger number of unique images for their sign ups in addition to other pro features.

The launch of SignUpGenius Payments and SignUpGenius Pro positions the company for even stronger growth than experienced in 2012:

  • 9 million items were signed up for in 2012 compared to 3.25 million in 2011
  • The company saw a 254% growth in revenue in 2012
  • In the last six months of 2012, SignUpGenius experienced an average of 3.6 million visits to the site per month compared to 1.4 million visits per month during the same time period in 2011
SignUpGenius plans to develop additional features for SignUpGenius Pro in 2013 while it continues to enhance its core free version. “Our goal, as it has always been, is to persistently maximize the value of our online sign up service for every customer,” says Rutledge.
