Braxion was designed with accuracy,
speed, and efficiency in mind:
Accuracy is of course the most
important item when running brackets. A mistake in score entry or handicap of a
single pin may cost you, the bracket manager, all of your income for the day or
more. While the software itself cannot detect a mistake in score entry, Braxion is
committed to providing software that gives you every possible means for insuring that your
brackets and sidepots are correct and your profits are secure. This is accomplished
in Braxion by providing a general ease-of-use in the software itself, and
specific functions for quickly double-checking entries and scores.
Speed is not a critical component in
bracket management, but is appreciated by your customers. Braxion
is designed for quick insertion of entrants and scores, along with quick verification to
minimize the possibility of an error. Brackets are posted quickly and payoffs can
begin usually within a couple minutes of the last ball being thrown.
Efficiency in bracket/sidepot
management leads us towards our first two goals, accuracy and speed. Braxion
is designed to be efficient through eliminating keystrokes in data entry, and
requiring only the minimum number of scores being collected and entered to finish the
brackets and sidepots. The latter can be very beneficial, as by the time the last
game is bowled, as little as 10% of the entrants' scores may need to be collected.
Why collect scores that have no bearing on the outcome of the brackets? The
scoresheet and the score entry screen include the same entrants in the same order, so
score entry is as efficient as possible. Of course, sidepot entrants will continue
to show up on the scoresheet, and you have the option of always printing all entrants and
entering all the scores.
