WIZ-TEAM ANNOUNCES IGNITX AS PREFERRED DELIVERY PARTNER

September 17, 2020

Wiz-Team is delighted to announce IGNITX as their preferred partner for event operations. IGNITX is a network of event professionals. Whilst Wiz-Team provides its innovative software solution, IGNITX provides the business process knowledge and operates as a user of Event-Works. 

The collaboration with IGNITX has developed very naturally as both companies share the same vision of empowering people. They have already worked together successfully on the delivery of the accreditation operations at the 2019 Longines Master Series, and the registration and accreditation operations for the Boxing Road to Tokyo Qualifying Events.

During these challenging times, both Wiz-Team and IGNITX have joined forces on several strategic projects. Wiz-Team’s data management skills and technical know-how complement perfectly IGNITX’s expertise in the event industry’s business processes. Teaming up has proven to be very productive to Wiz-Team’s mission of providing the leading Events Management System in the market.

Stay tuned as Wiz-Team and IGNITX collaborate on exciting solutions in sport entries, accreditations and accommodation.
