There has been a lot going on with assignr.com lately and I’m very excited to be able to share some big news…assignr.com has been acquired by BlueZebra Sports!
BlueZebra Sports is a leading provider of officiating management software with a strong focus on solutions for collegiate sports. Over 20 NCAA Division I Conferences use BlueZebra Sports to manage their officiating programs in one or more sports—including Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Softball, Wrestling, and Field Hockey.
Their clients include the ACC, The American, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, CAA, Horizon League, Mountain West, Pac-12, among others. They also serve several Division II/III, NAIA, and JuCo leagues, such as the Heart of America and Great Lakes Valley Conference.
In short, the best sports officiating solution for high school, youth, and adult sports is joining the best platform for collegiate sports officiating.
Bradley Batt, founder and owner of BlueZebra Sports, has extensive experience in software development, having started his career at Compaq in Houston before serving as a consultant to several Fortune 500 companies. Brad also spent 15 years officiating basketball, including 7 years working NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball.
BlueZebra Sports not only provides the officiating management software for many college conferences, they also operate Officiating.com, originally started in 1999 as a training and educational site for officials. Their forum is still today the most frequented sports officiating discussion board on the web.
I will be joining BlueZebra Sports full-time as Chief Operating Officer. My primary job will be to ensure that you experience a smooth transition with minimal disruption to the service you have come to expect from assignr.com.
With a significant change like this, I want to reassure you that this is a “big win” for you. There will be some changes, but this move will allow us to provide you and your sports officials with a better experience.
No surprises. There will be some changes to the service, however, we intend to communicate with you every step of the way. In addition, we will make sure that you are kept aware of changes and any impact they may have on your season.
assignr.com will soon be changing it’s name to officiating.com. We will be letting you know when we are ready to make this change, but the assignr.com name will soon be changing to officiating.com. Once the name change is complete, existing bookmarks will redirect automatically to officiating.com, in an effort to make the transition as easy as possible.
Initially, the only change you will see will be the assignr.com name and the look and feel to the assignr.com service. The service we will be providing will be the same as what you have used in the past. During the transition, we plan to provide continuous service with minimal disruption.
If you are an existing customer, rest assured that we will take care of you. Our first priority is taking care of our existing customers. Our goal is to ensure that any changes will help make your job easier. We will communicate with you, ask for your feedback, and assist you with any problems.
We make an awesome team! Brad and I have been working together since June to make this happen, and we have big plans for expanding services and features. Our vision is simple: Make managing sports officiating as easy as possible, using the best technology available.
Brad and I are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
