HOW IT WORKS
END TO END RODEO READY
We built Rodeo Ready to be 100% available online. Every aspect of Rodeo Ready can be managed within the App on your device. We manage the code, database, all system maintenance on our servers.
We built Rodeo Ready with the intent to save you time and make the job of managing a rodeo season easier, more accurate, and more automated. Because of how we have connected the back-end relational database, there is no need to double enter data. Once it is entered, it is available to all functions that need it. No need to look up data one place and enter it in another.
The RodeoReady App includes power filled functions that allow the rodeo admin to update, edit, add, and handle everything the rodeo season has to offer. Manually adjust anything, but mostly it’s enter once and let the system do the math and do the presentation.
BEST OF ALL, it all happens in the App so no need for you touch the data files or use another piece of software. Put Away the Spreadsheets With all the built-in functions and calculations in Rodeo Ready, you won’t need to track data in a spreadsheet. But you also are in full control The rodeo schedule is automatically posted. Entering results automatically calculates the payouts (based on the percentages and rules in the payout configurations).
ONCE YOU MARK THE RESULTS OFFICIAL
They are available to display publicly with the click of a button. Official results automatically update the season standings. Update the data and the built-in formulas update the rest. The App keeps your season Organized and Consistent, automatically, it’s wonderful. Add your rodeos to the database and the schedule appears, in order, properly formatted, with Smart Features like only allowing competitors to register for a competition from the beginning to the end of the open entry dates and times. Like only displaying a rodeo draw after it has been generated and you click the display button. Like only displaying the rodeo results after you have marked the results final. It’s like the system follows the rules you set.
AUTOMATIC, FLEXIBLE, POWERFUL
Features for Your Members Your members will begin to appreciate the standardized way everything is laid out for them, and quickly find their way to the rodeo schedule, the rodeo draws, the rodeo results, and season standings. Beyond all the public display information, they will also find their own member portal where they can view their personal season information, rodeos and events entered/completed, edit their profile, and make payments.
RODEO READY RUNDOWN
PREPARING FOR THE SEASON
Rodeo Ready works on a season schedule. You add each rodeo to the schedule, including details such as dates, performances, events, etc. and the rodeos will appear in the App for competitors and fans to see. When the start of the entry period begins, the Register button appears and contestants can click to register and pay for their events. You set all event features and we are off and running.
We set up the RodeoReady app to allow for almost any rode draw format you can put together, including:
- Standard Single Go
- Long Go Short Go
- Long Go, Short Go, Plus Average
- 2 Go
- 2 Go Plus Average
- 2 Long Go, Short Go, Plus Average
- 3 Go Plus Average
- 4 Go Plus Average
Each format is fully supported through the entire end-to-end RodeoReady System. That means that all of the management functions from the rodeo Draw Generation Engine, stock draws, re-ride stock assignments, manual draw adjustments, judges cards, draw display, results entry, payout calculations, results display, payout reports, and season standings.
With Rodeo Ready comes a full-function member database. New members can register including online payment. Annual membership fees due? Rodeo Ready can collect. Your rodeo administration staff have full control over the database. You can edit, add, update all aspects of the database. Members can login in and view: Rodeos and events they have entered, Winnings, standings and more.
The Entry System is one of the most powerful features of Rodeo Ready. Besides simply capturing the entry information, it can perform a number of quality checks to ensure against data entry, duplicate entry, and non-qualified entry. Controls in the entry process check to ensure only for valid members can enter.
Can include both buddies and roping team members. The entry group is used in the draw generation to place groups together in performances. After successfully submitting an entry, payment is made immediately using our integrated payment gateway.
We could really geek out here with some elaborate math equations and description of how the draw generation takes into account the entry group priorities, their performance preferences, the max number of entrants in a performance/event, assigns stock to entrants, and does all at the click of a button. We could do that, but we did it to each other and quite frankly we bored ourselves. The Draw Generation takes all the factors above and still produces a draw which includes random functions to make the draw fair to all and places all the contestants in either their 1st or 2nd preference. You can choose to have the draw procedure assign stock to the contestants as well as part of the random assignment. Stock assignments are generated automatically, semi-automatically, or manually, you decide. In automatic mode, stock are randomly assigned to contestants from the pool of available stock (based on the stock contractor). This happens automatically as part of the draw generation. In Semi-Auto mode, you run the contestant draw, then at a later time, run the stock assignment. This way you can communicate with your stock contractor regarding stock requirements per event and performance. In manual mode, yup, you assign all stock to each contestant from the stock drop down list. When stuff happens, and you need to make changes to the draw, you know the reasons, then the Admin controls allow the Organization Admin to make manual adjustments to all parts of the draw. Move a contestant to a different spot in the order, change stock assignments, add a late entrant. All these changes can be done without re-running the draw generation engine and changing everything.
DRAW POSTING NOTIFICATION is one of our newest features of the Draw Generation engine, when you decide to post the draw, all contestants are sent an in-app notification. Tired of phone calls into the office asking when the draw will be posted? This new feature will give them the answer to "Is the Draw Up Yet?" right on their phone.
With a thousand things to do for the rodeo staff on rodeo days, it's comforting to know that RodeoReady has you covered with announcer sheets, judges cards, and results entry is going to be a snap. Enter the data. RodeoReady applies the formulas and calculates the placings and payouts. Done. You decide when to finalize the results for public viewing.
All the data is in the database, let use it! After all your results are finalized and marked official, simply select the option from the menu and choose the rodeo. We will give you a report to preview of all the winners by event and a consolidated list of winnings by contestant.
MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU
We are quite proud of RodeoReady and all it's capabilities. We also know that not every rodeo association manages their rodeos and seasons to the same set of rules. Payout calculations are different. Qualifications for the finals rodeo are different. Our existing system has a wide range of flexible settings and configurations that accommodate a wide range of management rules. We also get that you have your own way of doing things and we want to support it. When a customer requests a new feature, such as a new report, we make it available to all customers, automatically. Beyond the system that we have today will be the system that includes the special features and enhancements that come with every great idea.
