ENTRANT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR AGRICULTURAL SOCIETIES
A COMPREHENSIVE SHOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEM DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR AGRICULTURAL SHOWS.
Michael Coggan - Secretary Maffra Agricultural Society 2019
We have been using Shentry for 3 years now.
When I began my role as Secretary of the Maffra Show we had no online entry system and relied on the mail system to receive entries. For the 4 weeks prior to our Show I would be absorbed in opening envelopes, typing up entries and banking cheques. We have found the Shentry online entry system to be a huge time and money saver. In our first year of using Shentry (last year) we had over 65% of entries done online. This indicates the ease with which entrants found the system and resulted in an enormous saving of my time in processing the entries and reconciling our banking. We also found that the $1,200 we spent on entry forms will no longer be required this year and plan to reduce our printing and waste costs further over time in subsequent years.
I have found Mark to be very accommodating when using Shentry. He was available 24/7 (almost) to answer questions or solve problems. He has managed to find and develop innovative solutions to the complex requirements of agricultural shows entries and record keeping. This year we are hoping to be able to have our results done (by school students helping our stewards) on Shentry which will further reduce our recording time requirements and also develop our younger Show enthusiasts.
The Maffra Agricultural Society highly regards the Shentry online system and would thoroughly recommend its use for all types of shows.
Shentry is cloud based and can be used from most web ready devices, from tablets, to mobile phones, as well as pc and mac computers.
The advantages of shentry being cloud based are:
