My grandson, Ollie recently joined a more competitive swim club who use Club Organiser. I was so impressed with the way it works from a parental/guardian point of view, that I wanted to know more. We now use it for our smaller swim club that I still volunteer as secretary for. I’m sooo excited, I have just loaded my first results file from the EAGC boy it saved some time from Hy-Tek file .
An absolute MUST for all clubs – Very easy to use- No more chasing members for fees- Direct Debit facility is fantastic- Galas entered and paid for online is a godsend!! The Most important features for us as a club are Direct Debit, Online Gala Entry and Payment, Medical Detail Storage and Access, Live Registers - FANTASTIC!
The parents of a new swimmer who’d recently moved to our club from another, told us about Club Organiser as they had been using it – we’re glad they did as we use it now and our members are able to update their own details online, receive all club emails and we hope to soon use it for entering fixtures and galas as well – it makes our job of running the swimming club so much easier.
The ability to mailmerge members fees documents made a huge difference to the amount of time I spent on admin every term. Being able to print off payment reports also helped, so I could chase outstanding fees more easily. My favourite aspect was being able to keep check of members more easily for the big annual ASA membership renewal each January – marking members as inactive when the dropped off during the year and then deleting them all en masse when they didn’t renewed their membership the next January!
Our community association needed a database that we could control and also use to send out emails to all our members, but that was more than just an Excel Spreadsheet. Club Organiser was such a good offer - it doesn’t matter to us that we don’t use all the features at the moment – we can always choose to do more in the future, and will still pay the same amount!
I asked for a system whereby we could choose teams from active registers, email those team members and update them of any late details quickly and easily, and I was very happy to find that CO provided it all.
As the newly appointed Club Secretary, I’ve found the Tutorials very good and user-friendly, helping me learn about the software and what can be done. The club’s been using CO for about 3 years now, so I’ve had to catch up and the support and prompt responses from the Club Organiser Team to any queries I’ve had has been great.
As the Treasurer for the Eastern Teras, the move to Club Organiser has made a significant improvement to the workload. All event entries are now produced in a summary we can use to organise the sailing clubs without the need to compile additional lists. I also know everyone has paid! The merchandise page has made the ordering of hoodies by the secretary a breeze and we can now concentrate on undertaking the coaching not the admin.
