The Launch of a Rules & Calendar App for Dressage NZ
20 August 2013
Subject: The Launch of a Rules & Calendar App for Dressage NZ
QR codes, scanner Apps and URL short-codes are not the usual language of dressage but they are the terms Sport Manager of Dressage New Zealand (a discipline of Equestrian Sports NZ) Wendy Hamerton has become familiar with and excited about over the last few months.
Dressage has teamed up with EventsApps.net to develop an App linked to its Rules and an Events Calendar covering dressage events in NZ run under ESNZ rules.
“We were presented with a vision of what the proposed App could deliver and we loved the concept” said Hamerton. “We were blown away by the final result and look forward to exploring what other information we can deliver to our competitors and sponsors using this technology.”
She went on to say that she was looking forward to hearing feedback from other equestrian and sporting codes in NZ and from her international dressage colleagues on what she believes may be one of a few of it’s kind globally. She quotes a Dressage member as recently commenting that whilst we may be geographically isolated from the European hub of equestrian sport that we can still produce some world class technology to support the sport here
Asked about cost, Hamerton said that the often quoted “$15,000 to $50,000” for any App is way off the mark. EventsApps.net has developed a platform for its speciality that offers an affordable App solution; the source information just needs to be presented in a prescribed MS® Excel® or Word® templated format and from that the App can be created (and hosted). And all the work is undertaken in NZ. The great thing about this App is we can provide it free to members
