The future of three-day eventing is in the new USEA Event Management System (EMS)! This new software system will allow for competitors, coaches, organizers, and secretaries to have relevant event information in their hands. By using advanced technology, this new software system will be an all-encompassing tool used to provide a well-organized, smooth competition with limited contact and instant updates.
EMS has been designed by experts of the equestrian community with input from multiple event organizers, secretaries, scorers, and more. The design has accounted for the fact that each event runs a little differently. The system will provide every feature necessary for running and competing in an event. The system will manage entries, scheduling, scoring, purchases, stabling, important updates, and optional enhanced features. In addition, the system will allow custom scoring solutions for different types of events including live scoring for intercollegiate team challenges. The system is not limited to just recognized events, as it will support various types of competitions, clinics, schooling shows, and educational activities.
The new system will support manual entries and imports from USEA Xentry and other third-party entry systems.
Events can push out real-time communications, registration changes, purchases, or account reconciliations to and from participants via smartphones or other devices through the USEA Event Companion app. Therefore, EMS will help eliminate competitor confusion during an event and offer a game-changing experience. For example, if there is a rain delay, you may receive an EMS alert. Need to close your tab on shavings? You can pay through EMS. There’s not enough time to pick up a dressage test? View it on your EMS profile. There’s a specific jump on cross-country that has caused several runouts? Check EMS scoring.
The BOG approved the development of the system in 2019 after several years of studying the current systems and analysis of costs and benefits. The USEA contracted The Jockey Club Technology Services, Inc. to help build, support, and maintain the new system.
The EMS will be fully supported by the riders and events that use it and not through USEA membership dues. The individual cost to the events to use the product is still being determined, but the goal is to make it as affordable as possible.
Benefits of Using EMS
EMS provides one location with everything needed to run an event, state-of-the-art technology, enhanced scoring systems, real-time updates, easy accessibility, cost-effective, 24/7 support for organizers and secretaries, and more.
The Future of EMS
This new system will roll out in 2021. The USEA is offering events to sign up as test events for the Fall eventing season of 2020.
