Designed and developed by the secretary of a major Wisconsin
poultry show, Show Commander was created to make the secretary’s
complex job as easy as possible. Its ease of use and powerful
features significantly reduces the time spent in preparing for
a show and reducing, or eliminating, errors.
Show Commander was designed to reduce repetition, making
data entry, browsing, auditing and reporting fast.
Robust validation and suggested values make entering bad
data a thing of the past. Engage your exhibitors in
validating their own entry by instantly issuing receipts
for their acknowledgment.
