Shentry is a web based show and event management system aimed at Agricultural Shows, although the advanced templating system allows Shentry to be flexible enough to be used for any entry based event.
Some of Shentry's main features:
“The Shentry program was easy to learn, easy to understand and significantly reduced the time needed to complete our entries in 2017. It was a resounding success for us in the first year of operation. Being web-based meant that access was available to our personnel wherever they could access a computer connected to the internet. This had many advantages for our data entry people, for our treasurer and for me, as Secretary.
My role of keeping an overview of the entries process was very straightforward, since all the information was available from any computer connected to the internet. The readily available search buttons throughout the program made response to queries from the general public and from our stewards very speedy. Similarly, our Treasurer could access and process financial information with ease.
Numerous features simplified and sped up the data entry stages, both for the schools’ personnel who took advantage of the online entry option available to them, as well as for our assistants who were involved in processing the paper entries. In addition, the fact that the schools were able to do their own entries online removed one of the most significant time and volume of work burdens for our data entry personnel.
The Shentry program comprehensively addressed the needs of our Show society and has plenty of flexibility to meet the requirements of other Societies who may operate quite differently. Mark Reside (Shentry’s creator) has an excellent understanding of how Shows ‘work’ and his support throughout our Show entries process in 2017 was outstanding. It was a pleasure working with him and I strongly encourage other Show societies to have a good look at Shentry to see the benefits for your own circumstances.
