Whether using individual tools and systems or simply writing everything down on paper, if the information is not integrated or shared across the Competition Centre, then someone, somewhere has to link each of the tasks and bits of information together. This means extra time and cost! Most Equestrian Competition Centre’s today have a lot of different technology and software that they use including:
01. Electronic Wireless timing systems
02. Invoicing applications and spread-sheets
03. Judging applications
04. Radio walkie-talkies
05. Online entries
06. Video streaming to TVs and websites
07. Membership databases
08. Customer Lists
09. Commentators Databases and information
10. Point of Sales (POS) terminals where payments are taken
The challenge is that these tend to be standalone or "silo" technologies that are seldom, if ever, integrated and do not talk to each other. They have access to, use and store lots of information and while individually they do their own single set of tasks extremely well, they are not integratedand therefore the information cannot be shared .
The information can only be shared by additional human interaction and effort, which is time consuming, clumsy, error prone and expensive. At best this can result in extra cost and extra manpower required to run the show; and at worst it can be the difference between a show running smoothly or suffering delays and interruptions that materially impact the overall efficiency of the Competition Centre and the competitors enjoyment.
Poorly run shows inevitably mean that subsequent shows are not as well supported because nobody wants to have to wait around all the time not knowing what is going on; everyone wants to compete where the shows are run efficiently, and on-time. Everyone! Organisers, Competitors, Owners and Spectators all need to know what is going on and what will happen next.....they want to be properly informed.
Now there is a better way with Showmanager!
Showmanager creates these joined-up systems and software, where information collected at each stage is shared across a common database so it can be re-used where needed and displayed to keep people regularly updated with the shows progress.

Showmanager has been designed to incorporate the expertise and know-how from experienced equestrian Centre owners, riders and event judges.
