Efficient club member registration and communication with members is an ongoing challenge for every sports team. In line with tourlegends' mission to provide a social network PLUS useful functionality for amateur sports clubs around the world, it has now released its Player Registration Module (PRM). This provides clubs with the facility to register players and supporters in one place and collect key information for contacting and for administration purposes (e.g. phone number, shirt size etc.).
After registration, the next recurring administrative headache for every sports club is extracting subscriptions and ad-hoc payments from members. The poor treasurer more often than not ends up with pockets full of cash, crumpled checks and untraceable bank transfers! Some clubs use PayPal but find it difficult to match payments from email addresses to actual members. 'The tourlegends - PayPal integration in our PRM module is an ideal solution matching on-line payments to members in an easy to use dashboard whilst maintaining the security of processing payments' said tourlegends founder, Nellie Rogers.
To further reduce the clubs administrative burden PRM also includes automated reminders, recurring payment options (e.g. monthly or quarterly), the ability to email members by payment status and the option to mark members as paid for those who did not pay on-line. Moreover a total of nine concurrent payment requests can be administered at any one time allowing clubs to collect payments for subscriptions, playing kit, tournament fees, social events etc at the same time. All of this is offered as a free service to tourlegends registered users, with normal charges from PayPal.
