Online and Onsite Management
Unlimited Admission Types
Prior to your event, CountryDanceDirector online registration tools allow your customers to easily manage their registrations, contests, product purchases, and table reservations. If they make a mistake, they can easily return and correct it.
Once your event has begun, a robust interface allows you to see at a glance every feature of a customer's registrations, contests, and purchases.
Admission types include unlimited varieties of weekend passes, day passes, and other customizable admissions (i.e, workshops, etc.) In addition, admissions items may individually be adjusted to allow or disallow deferral of payment until event check-in. Finally, weekend pass requirements may be tied to any contest registrations.
Table Management and Reservations
Table reservations and seating assignments may be automatically integrated within the online registration process, and onsite management tools easily provides a view of available table seats. We make it as easy as possible to fill those chairs.
Contest Management and Scoring
Contest types are completely configurable, and allow the application of unlimited category selections each contest type. The flexibility of our contest definitions supports all contest types covered by the ACDA, UCWDC, and WSDC. Contests may be defined as partner-defined (strictly swing), random partner (jack & jill), or other (team, cabaret, etc.) For large contests, multiple rounds may be necessary, and CountryDanceDirector makes it easy to advance competitors accordingly. Full support for contest scoring under ACDA and UCWDC formats are currently in development. Relative placement calculations are based upon the methodology recommended by the WSDC.
You want to increase your revenue with branded products from your event? CountryDanceDirector can integrate an unlimited number of products directly into the registration process, with sales tax calculations defined by you. Product details allow for size and color variations, and every product can feature it's own photo gallery.
Detailed reports are predefined for admissions, contests, table reservations and seat assignments, product purchases, and payment histories. These reports are directly printable, or may be downloaded in PDF or Microsoft Excel format.
CountryDanceDirector natively supports credit card transactions through either Authorize.Net or PayPal, and all transactions are protected with the security of SSL encryption. Full payment histories and details of merchant processing responses are also logged.
