Events Contact Tracing App

Note from Head Office

ItsPlainSailing Contact Tracing App Available

Many equestrian organisations are already familiar with ItsPlainSailing’s online entries and ticketing services for its events.  With Covid regulations making contact tracing a daily reality, ItsPlainSailing’s Michael Adams has created a simple-to-use unique ticketing system so Event Organisers can keep track of who is at their events.  This is must-have technology for organisers.

The ItsPlainSailing Contact Tracing app generates and issues uniquely encoded event tickets which are emailed to people once they have completed the questionnaire and submitted their online ticket application/ entry. The ticket can either be printed or kept on their mobile device for scanning.  Everyone attending events must have their own unique ticket which identifies them and what role they have at the event (athlete, groom, volunteer, official etc).

On the day of the event, the event organisers will control access on site using ItsPlainSailing’s unique App (works with Android or iPhone) to scan and validate all tickets on entry.   No ticket – no entry. 

With strict regulations required, organisers must now have a full list of attendees to equestrian events, so the ticketing system could not have come at a better time.

Eventing Ireland is already using the ItsPlainSailing ticketing system at its training events and will be in use for its national events this year.  A link will be available for people to generate tickets to their events when entries open. Tickets to the events are free.

Creator Michael Adams said “This was a natural extension to the Events functionality within ItsPlainSailing, and it has been great to work with Eventing Ireland, helping us to design a solution that is fit for purpose in these rapidly changing times. As well as providing contact tracing for equestrian events, we believe the solution will benefit people running any type of event where event organisers want to automate the ticket sales process, and control access to their events by scanning the pre-purchased tickets on entry. "

EI Chairman David O’Brien commented “On behalf of Eventing Ireland I would like to thank Michael Adams and ItsPlainSailing in assisting Eventing Ireland to find an effective solution to meet our Covid Track and Trace obligations, which includes a ticketing solution for record purposes, to enable our members attending events this season in a safe manner.  Given the technology being used I am sure there will be other uses into the future and I would encourage our members to familiarise themselves with the system”.
