Partnership with Funnerator simplifies program registration
Seattle Parks and Recreation and Seattle based start-up Funnerator, the popular website that simplifies finding, planning and booking kids’ activities, are pleased to announce a new partnership beginning immediately.
The partnership brings together Seattle Parks and Recreation’s rich assortment of more than 16,000 annual activities and programs with Funnerator’s comprehensive set of tools for discovery and registration. This partnership will help busy families find, plan and register for all Seattle Parks and Recreation activities in one place.
“Seattle Parks and Recreation offers such a wide assortment of offerings from Zumba to piano to cooking,” said Christopher Williams, Acting Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “This is innovative new tool will help parents sort information about our classes in a way that previously had not been possible. It improves customer experience and promotes our programs.”
Founded in 2012, Funnerator was born from the struggles of well-intentioned parents, and the idea that there has to be a better way to find and plan enriching activities for kids. With 12,000 Greater Seattle area programs and activities listed, including detailed information, schedules, prices and current availability, the site helps families quickly find, plan and book out-of-school activities.
Funnerator is more than just a new way to discover kids’ activities. The site’s Universal Registration Form simplifies the activity booking process down from multiple pages of paper to one form and one click. Parents may then reuse the Universal Registration Form for any activity displaying the “Book It” button. By giving parents a simplified registration experience, and the ability to easily search based on type of activity, zip code and schedule, Funnerator has quickly become popular with busy Seattle area parents who appreciate the timesaving help.
