/ Busy Fall Propels SignUpGenius into Top 1000 US Sites
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - November 12, 2014 - SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up provider for volunteer and event organizing, moves into the 880th spot of US ranked sites (Alexa.com) thanks to a busy fall for schools and organizations. More than a quarter of a million events were coordinated through SignUpGenius in the month of October alone.
In addition to SignUpGenius, SignUpGenius Pro offers an advanced suite of features for large organizations, businesses, and power users. SignUpGenius Payments provides the ability to collect money through sign ups, from end-of-season coaches' gifts to large fundraisers like capital campaigns.
This fall marked significant growth for the already popular organizing site. Revenue from SignUpGenius Pro increased 156% in October 2014 over the same month last year, while revenue from SignUpGenius Payments was up 191% over the same period a year ago.
“The team of SignUpGenius is incredibly grateful to be recognized as the go-to solution for volunteer and event organizing," said Dan Rutledge, SignUpGenius CEO. "We understand that life is only getting busier for families, and we’re committed to making our service easy to use while continually adding new features. Our growth this fall helps affirm that’s what group organizers are looking for.”
