League and Venue Management Software Features
Below are some features of the software. For a full example of how the system works, please see the demo.
Accept Registrations Online
Accept registrations from teams or individuals online. Create teams from groups of individual registrations and give your team organisers great tools to help them organise their team and therefore cut down on the number of forfeits that occur.
Accept Payments Online
Use any standard online payment gateway to accept payments online, such as PayPal, Barclays EPDQ, SagePay etc. And each region, venue or even league within your database can use a different payment gateway, enabling you to offer a franchise model whereby your franchisees are paid directly, and you don't have to manage their cashflow for them.
Specify Team Preferences
Specify which times a team would like to play at and which times they would not. The fixture generation process will then try to take these preferences into account, and will flag any instances where it was unable to adhere to a team's preferences.
Fixture Generation Conditions
Along with team preferences (above) you can also specify conditions that must be met when generating fixtures. For instance, you can specify that teams should play no more than 1 fixture on Sundays, or no more than 1 fixture at 21:00 to ensure that no teams get too many late or Sunday games.
Take the grunt work out of generating fixtures. Automatically create hundreds of fixtures at once based on specific conditions that you set, and team preferences that you indicate.
View all the fixtures and bookings at a venue on a calendar by day or by week.
Drag and drop fixtures or bookings to move them around, drop them on top of on another to swap them, drag and click on available times to create new fixtures or bookings.
Click on team names to display contact information for the captain, and even email or SMS direct from the calendar to teams and players.
The calendar also highlights "clashes" - fixtures where teams are playing at times they would prefer not to, or when teams or players are scheduled to be playing more than one game at the same time, or when umpires are scheduled to be umpiring and playing at the same time.
View all the fixtures and bookings at a venue in a list. Update the costs, payments, results, officials and notes for some or all of the fixtures and bookings in one go. Print out the report to leave with your duty managers or bar staff.
Spawtz can automatically post to your Twitter account whenever a result is entered in the system, and you can allow players to share results, standings, stats and scoresheets directly onto their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
Take the guesswork out of managing your officials. They can indicate their availabilities for particular dates at particular venues, and then Spawtz will highlight to you whether they are available or not, and flag clashes when they are playing in another fixture or umpiring another game at the same time.
Create and Track Memberships
Allow customers to become "Members" and track when their membership subs are due or memberships expire. Run reports to show whose memberships are due for renewal soon, and contact all members at once via email or sms.
Take Court, Pitch or Room Bookings Online
Allow customers book courts online via a simple online booking process, and allow them to pay for those bookings online via a payment gateway. Get notified when anyone creates a booking, and communicate with online bookers via email or sms.
In Depth Reporting
Draw reports to show revenues, registration counts, fixture counts, required official remunerations, team sign in sheets, KPI reports for governing bodies, and many more besides. Print directly from the report screens, or export the data to Excel for further work. Custom reports can easily be created, so however you need the data, we will display it to you.
Press Ctrl + G from anywhere in the system to bring up the Quick Lookup box. Enter part of a team or user's name, email address or phone number to quickly bring up all the pertinent info on that team or user including their next fixture, their contact details, what memberships they possess and links to their profile, statement, player list etc.
View Team and Player Financial Statements
Show a player or team's statement so you can quickly determine what they owe and for which items. The information on statements can also be collated into reports so you can see how your venue or league is doing overall and how much money is outstanding etc.
