Our CS Contest Management software provides all
of the tools necessary for a completely
Paperless contesting system. Like
all of our software packages, CS Contest Management is comprised of several
modules designed specifically for the department in which it is used. For a
complete list of all modules included in this package click the
Modules icon. Since CS
Contest Management is licensed by station, the modules can be installed on as
many workstations as necessary.
The password protected CS Contest Maintenance
module provides Promotions with the ability to schedule contests and prizes by
station, date, day of week and time of day. This module also has all of the
reporting tools necessary to monitor your contest winners. Everything
from 1099-Misc Income Tax Forms to Listener E-Mail is selectable at any time.
For On-Air Talent
The Contest entry module was designed in
conjunction with a number of on-air staff to ensure the program is easy to use
in the studio. A single data entry window with default and auto correcting
features for easy data entry. Since this data will be reviewed and verified when
the prize is collected, the data accuracy is greatly improved. The On-Air module
also supports Caller-ID via the Whozz Calling Caller ID units. (sold separately)
Within seconds of data entry the Pickup module
will have the winner and prize information available. Simply enter a name or
phone number and the winning entries appear. The advanced Collection Status
window is a quick and easy way to find what has and has not been collected.
Search by station, date, prize, winner, contest etc to create your own
customized views. With all contest information available electronically, we have
virtually eliminated all of the paper associated with contesting except one.
When the contest winner collects their prize, we will want a
release/waiver/condition signature from the individual. If desired, we can
continue with printed release forms or we can opt for the electronic signatures
using the Topaz SigGem signature pad (sold separately) and eliminate the last
piece of printed copy.
Interactive Tax Status verification.
When winning the current contest will require a tax form, the on-air staff will be notified allowing the
listener to decline the prize. If accepted, Reception will be notified
of the change is status and collect the necessary forms and noting that
forms are on file.
Links to Automation System.
Contests may now be linked to an event in the on air system and
a user definable window when that event is played.
Trivia Question Database.
In addition to adding trivia questions to individual contests, we can
now add a generic Trivia Question list available for use in all contests
for the station.
Multi-Window Format. The
new (Radio Automation System) RAS Blue mode displays the on-air window
in a format compatible to the popular automation systems. All the same
functionality with a similar appearance.
