Rodeo Management – Rodeo Entry

From the contestant side, it all begins with the Rodeo Entry.  We have built the rodeo entry system on the Rodeo Management System to satisfy the needs of both the rodeo entrant as well as the rodeo administrators.  For the contestant, the powerful yet simple to use entry system allows them to enter a rodeo by completing only one form, including all their rodeo buddies and roping partners.  Each entrant and buddy can select from the complete list of rodeo events offered at the particular rodeo.  Once submitted, all entrants are kept together in the same group so when the rodeo draw is generated, they will be placed in the day and performance.

From the administrator side, the rodeo entry often never needs to be touched.  The entrants and the unique group are stored in the database and are available for the rodeo draw assignment as soon as they have paid all entry fees.  The entry process checks for all the important stuff, like any fines owing by the entrants, proper rodeo contestant numbers, and duplicate entries.  If needed, all aspects of the entries can be managed by the admin.

A clean entry and payment system leads to fewer problems down the road and significantly reduces the amount of manual work and intervention required by the rodeo management staff.

Partner for Better Service

I recently had a conversation with a customer that led to a project that quite honestly I can’t handle myself.  The technical aspects of the project, yes, I can manage these.  The website design and SEO, sure.  But there is a significant video component and social media integration that I know can be managed better by others.  Did I turn the project down?  Of course not, instead, I brought in the experts to help manage the project and add their particular areas of expertise to the customer’s advantage.  See my page on Partners (in the left hand menu).

I believe strongly in leveraging the strengths of your friends, associates, partners and even competitors when it makes business sense for all of you.  I this case, the people I have brought into the project could all be considered competition to me, as our services certainly overlap.  Any one of us could be the lead on this project.  However, my company is much stronger being able to call on experienced talent such as this.

As I say on the Partners page, the benefit to the client is substantial, and the reward to all of us will be another successful project.  But a word of caution, choose your partners carefully.  Make sure you know the quality of their work, and make sure they understand their role in the project.  If you are the driver, stay in the driver’s seat so that you all follow the same road.
