May 4th, 2022 – Victoria, BC – County of Kings opts for Book King recreation management software
Kings County is located centrally within the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, along the famous Bay of Fundy. It is perfectly situated for a myriad of recreational activities, and the municipality’s Parks and Recreation Department is looking to improve access to these through the implementation of Book King recreation management software.
While locals and visitors alike are drawn to the area by its astonishing red cliffs and remarkable tides, there are also wonderful beaches, parks, trails and swimming facilities to keep the community active.
The Municipality of the County of Kings will be adopting a number of Book King systems including Facility Scheduling, Program Registration, Point of Sale, Financial System Integration, and Public Access modules in order to automate some of the processes managed from their headquarters in Coldbrook.
Shawn Fevens, Coordinator of Recreation Services for the Municipality of the County of Kings, describes how several positive reviews from nearby communities prompted them to choose Book King for their recreation management needs:
“After speaking with other municipalities, it became clear why Book King is the most popular registration system in the Annapolis Valley area of Nova Scotia. We also wanted a platform that our communities would be familiar with.”
Book King will allow the Parks and Recreation Department to move away from paper-based program registration forms and excel spreadsheets to a system that facilitates effortless online registration for Kings County residents.
It is no surprise then that the Program Registration module is the one that the organization is looking forward to utilizing the most. Allowing users to complete program registrations online without staff support is set to make life much easier for Shawn and his colleagues:
“Our previous process was very time consuming and registration could only be done during business hours when a staff member was available. The new Book King system is very user-friendly and will free up staff time for other projects.”
Efficiency is key to any organization’s success, and now that employees no longer need to monitor customer accounts using a piecemeal combination of spreadsheets and paper registration documents, staff productivity is likely to increase significantly.
The Book King system will also have a positive impact on the Kings County community as a whole. Residents will gain fast access to their favorite recreational programs by signing up for activities and paying fees as part of a seamless online registration experience.
With a busy summer season ahead, the Municipality of the County of Kings is now better equipped than ever to offer local residents a hassle-free way to enjoy the top-class facilities available throughout the county.
