Sport and Recreation Technology Company Legend Recreation Software, Inc. joins the House of Sport
Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada (RA) – (Ottawa, ON) – The RA is pleased to announce that leading sport and recreation technology company Legend Recreation Software, Inc. will join the House of Sport in December 2017.
The House of Sport being developed at the RA Centre provides National and Multi-Sport organizations the opportunity to house their administrative offices in a feature rich environment designed for collaboration, innovation and efficiency – a first of its kind in Canada. The House of Sport will also offer space to complementary organizations that will support and enhance the sport organizations. “We are excited to have an expanding and progressive company Legend Recreation Software join the House of Sport,” explains Tosha Rhodenizer, RA Chief Executive Officer. “Their distinguished international pedigree, entrepreneurial nature and imaginative approach to their products and services, will inspire National and Multi-Sport organizations within the House of Sport to bring innovative concepts to market.”
The House of Sport reimagines the physical environment with a view to boosting connectivity and synergy. By belonging to a connected workplace, members of the House of Sport will share ideas, engage and grow professionally to increase knowledge individually and within their organizations. The addition of an advanced technology company to the House of Sport reinforces the desire to develop new collaborative platforms to engage staff and the community.
“Legend is rapidly increasing its footprint in Canada – working to meet the needs of facilities and municipalities,” says James O’Brien, Managing Director, Legend Recreation Software. “By joining the House of Sport we hope to increase opportunities to engage with other broader base members of the Canadian National Sport world. Connecting and working alongside these organizations will ensure that Legend can gain significant insights into the Canadian national sport environment and can use this insight to add value to our burgeoning product offers.”
Not only is Legend Recreation Software joining the House of Sport, Legend’s innovative cloud-based single solution software system has been selected as the RA’s new registration and recreation management software. RA members and clients will benefit from faster registration access, online booking functionality and a consistent user experience across multiple devices. The Legend solution includes a full suite of online registration, facility rental and customer account management services; integrated website content administration; a comprehensive point of sale system and a ground breaking back office application. Legend’s flagship business intelligence reporting will allow the RA to understand member needs and deliver our programs and services more effectively.
Upon reviewing its existing system, the RA recognized that significant improvements were required and that it needed to modernize and centralize the system to provide a better experience for its customers and members. After a detailed evaluation, it became clear that the breadth and depth of Legend’s innovative solutions was exactly what the organization was looking to implement. The RA is expecting to launch with the Legend solution late in 2017.
