Managing registrations is the central function of the STRONGVON Tournament Management System. Many functions on the system are based on the information in the registration database. Functions such as online registration form, publishing, printing, bracketing, match lineup, match results, summary of winners, and ID cards requires constant communication with the registration database.
Registrations are maintained to minimize the amount of data entry. Once a registration is saved in the event’s database, it is immediately available for use by the other functions in the Administration Software. When a registration is updated, the changes are immediately updated on the other functions.
Registrations are added into the system by submission of an online registration form, by manual entry on the Administration Software, or by import from an external source file. Figure 1 shows an overview of how the registration database is essential to the other functions in the system.
