Ultimate Central, an event management platform for the sport of Ultimate, and the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF), Ultimate's international governing body, today announced a partnership which will allow WFDF to run the WU23 website, payment, registration, schedule creation, and scoring on the Ultimate Central platform.
Recently, WFDF made the strategic decision to unify web platforms and processes around its major events. Historically, independent event organizers were tasked with finding their own web platforms, registration systems, and tournament management systems for scoring, bracket creation, and statistics, and there was little coordination to use what had been developed previously, leading to significant duplication of efforts and inefficiencies. "Ultimate Central's integrated CMS, registration, and tournament management platform will allow us to provide organizers with one single solution to run sanctioned events, saving them time and money of developing and troubleshooting custom systems and making sure event websites remained available for years to come," said Brian Gisel, chair of WFDF's Ultimate Committee.
