SwimTopia Acquires Swim-Team.US, an Atlanta-based Firm
SwimTopia acquires Swim-Team.US, a company that has been providing swim team management software since 2008, and serves over 500 swim teams across the United States. Swim-Team.US owner and founder, Rich Waldis, has joined SwimTopia as Brand Ambassador and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Rich to our team!
“This acquisition enables us to accelerate our pace of innovation and keep our technology far ahead of that of our competitors,” said Mason Hale, Founder and CEO of SwimTopia. “Rich Waldis is one the pioneers of online swim team management, and we’re thrilled to have him join our team. Working together, we’ll be better able to serve the biggest and most established swim leagues in the United States.”
When Rich began Swim-Team.US he had the objective of creating scalable, modern, innovative software that would revolutionize the way swim teams operated – from online registration and managing volunteers, to working swim meets, and more. Rich developed a comprehensive feature set to support swim team volunteers and reduce the workload of running a swim team. SwimTopia shared the same vision, and both providers worked separately over the years to solve the same swim team problems, but in slightly different ways. Now, with Swim-Team.US and SwimTopia combining forces there is as an opportunity for swim teams to receive a “best of both worlds” product.
With the talent, expertise, and resources of two leading swim software vendors coming together, SwimTopia will be innovating more quickly, increasing investment in product development to expand features, and advancing the pace of innovation in the swim team software industry. We expect SwimTopia customers, and swim teams around the country, to receive better service as a result.
“For more than a decade, I’ve been helping swim teams run better with technology. I’m excited to be joining SwimTopia so, together, we can make life even easier for a lot more swim team administrators, coaches, and volunteers,” said Rich Waldis, Founder and Owner of Swim-Team.US
