A Facilities Scheduling and Managment Tool to Organize Field Usage throughout a Season

Currently, our club utilizes two indoor facilities, each with 2 fields, as well as two outdoor facilities, each with 11 fields. We've tried several different software tools to help us organize our facility usage but they are either too expensive or don't offer the tools we need in a simple and cohesive manner. Essentially, we need an administrative calendar that can display who is practicing where and when but also displays what fields are open. Ideally it would have the following options:

  • Schedule single resources or save time using a multi-scheduling option.
  • Eliminate double-bookings with built-in conflict resolution capability.
  • Allow staff to quickly locate available resources by day and time.
  • Alter time and location for events with a simple drag and drop option.
  • Report smarter with intuitive monthly calendar, resource usage and availability reports.
  • Ability to post things publicly and privately. 
  • Ability to connect with team pages.

    I've recently been using the Tourney Tool and it looks to have a lot of the same features that this facility management tool would need such as venues and sub-venues, drag and drop assignment capabilities, start dates and end dates, and microsite capabilities. The next step would be integrating that with team calendars and communication services.

    League Athletics had this and it is a godsend for rink & team management.  This is one of the regrets I have moving from league athletics to sportsengine.  If L.A. fixes their financial pieces, we might move back.

    I have reviewed diamond scheduler and it provides a lot of this functionality.  The license is only $100.
