The PROTOUCH Event Management Solution, encompasses a range of modules and services. Providing by a turn key, end-to-end solution for event organisers managing virtual and pro racing events:
Enabling a customised landing page for an event, that directs the user to information specific to the event, route/s, rules and the ability to enter [both with the event and on the underlying online event platform [such as Zwift, Rouvy, Kinomap etc.];
We enable the ability to collect payments – for event organisers, charities and/ or causes – in the form of entry fees and/ or donations, as well as the facilitation of any required “pay-aways” to third parties including: Cycling South Africa for sanctioned events, the event organizer and/ or any nominated charity. Our solution provides two alternative payment options: 1) Traderoot Technologies’ innovative QR code technology, integrated into popular Mobile Payment Applications [such as Zapper, SnapScan and VodaPay] as well as a users own Masterpass-enabled banking application; and 2) via our Crowdfunding Platform, via Payflex using a debit, credit card or EFT. This option also provides a “pay-in-4” option (4 equal fortnightly instalments) interest free;
Our Solution can publish results seamlessly, off the underlying timing chip or virtual platform [Zwift, Rouvy, Kinomap etc.] including the ability to filter out participants not part of the event (i.e. where the event is available to other online platform subscribers, who may not be part of the local event or Virtual Series);
RULES ENGINE AND POINTS MANAGEMENT
We can allocate points and apply specific rules i.e. minimum number of entrants to qualify for points. prize money or overall rankings in a Series etc. We use this components for the back end treasury management of our soon-to-be-launched Athlete Rewards Programme.
LIVE EVENT STREAMING
Through our partnership with Beyond Sound and MVM Media, we can live stream events onto multiple channels (social, website and traditional broadcasting channels) integrating the underlying online platform event with commentary as well as provide in race coverage for live events;
We can provide commentary by Myles Van Musschenbroek – our Support SA Talent Brand Ambassador and ex-professional pro rider as well as, current team owners and voice overs by Phil Liggett – the global voice of cycling himself like THIS;
PRE AND POST PRODUCTION SERVICES
We can provide pre and post production services to event organisers including interviews, production of social media artwork and publishing management, programme production as well as highlights package, as required.
We can provide input to race selection and direction [including the best race platform and format]; independent event organisers can have an event as stand alone, as well as the ability to add their event to the Support SA Talent Virtual Racing Series.
We can provide Event Organisers a number of different options to consider in terms of a virtual racing event. Event Organisers can make use of our Zwift Event License, providing access to a range of Zwift routes, with up to 4 categories (Mens A, B, C and Womens D – all).
In addition to the Zwift Platform, we also have the ability to record the route [or segment of the physical race] and upload this to the Kinomap and Rouvy Platforms. The Rouvy Platform can then be further developed to provide in-race branding to provide sponsor branding as well. The option to provide a Strava Challenge segment can also be provided for participants who do not have a smart trainer.
