Race Roster and Protecht renew partnership

Protecht, Inc. and its FanShield subsidiary are teaming up with Race Roster to reduce the financial risks borne by event organizers and the athletes who register for high-profile endurance events. Under a prior agreement, Race Roster deployed the RegShield Widget into its event management platform. With this 3-year exclusive agreement, Race Roster renews its commitment to leverage Protecht technology and will continue to provide athletes with an opportunity to financially protect their registration investment.

With this partnership, Race Roster’s clients who promote, organize, and conduct endurance events across North America will deploy RegShield’s technology platform to help deliver a compliant, safe, secure, and user-friendly option to provide financial protection in case registrants can’t make the event for any covered reason. Protecht’s end-to-end solution takes the entire risk management process off the hands of the event organizer, with a platform that has been optimized to create a streamlined, best-in-class environment for consumers to manage their claim process.

We’re committed to introducing new platforms into the Protecht Family, but we’re especially gratified when a current partner acknowledges the value in our service offering by extending the relationship. That’s the ultimate compliment.” — Bryan Derbyshire CEO Protecht

“The entire Protecht/RegShield team continues to invest in this partnership. We see them as an extension of our team and they show up day-in and day-out for our shared clients. The Race Roster team is just getting started on our path to becoming the leading global endurance event management platform for virtual and in-person events, and Protecht has been on this journey with us from the beginning.” –Bob Pluss CAO Race Roster
