"Why TS? We're used to SwissPerfect / Protos / Swiss-chess / whatever.."

- Because TS is a modern, user-friendly and well designed application, still under continuous development and improvement. Many of the competitors seem be stuck in the past with virtually no developments. In addition to state-of-the-art tournament management, TS will give you automatic web publishing - for free!

Latest developments:

With the launch of version 6.01 we once again made epoch-making news: Automatic internet publishing! All TS-users got access to their own corner of the internet where they may publish their events. There, the tournaments automagically gets a welcome/invitation page, support for online signup via the internet, continous round bulletins, continously updated results, games for viewing from the net  - and then some. All this in multiple languages.

Such functionality has until now only been achievable for the largest and most resourceful tournaments, requiring a dedicated staff for web-maintenance and programming. Even then, it has been lots of hard work to get such level of service for the public. Well, those days are over! With TS 6, even small clubs, arbiters and tournaments can go public in a very professional way with just a click of the mouse! All this is of course powered by TournamentService, no effort or knowledge is required of the arbiter.

Tournament calendar and database

As a bonus, every time a tournament is published with this system, it is added to a common public database, where the public can search for tournaments or players. The database is both a result-server during the tournament, a calendar and signup portal for upcoming events, and a historic archive long after the tournament is finished!
