Rural Municipality of Hanover Selects Book King Software

Rural Municipality Of Hanover Selects Book King Software

May 17th, 2021 – Victoria, BC – Rural Municipality of Hanover, Manitoba has chosen Book King’s Facility Scheduling, Registration,  Public Access and Point of Sale Modules.

Book King’s Scheduling, Registration, Public Access and Point of Sale Modules were recently purchased by the Rural Municipality of Hanover in Manitoba. Book King Software will allow the RM’s staff and residents to easily and conveniently manage all of their recreational needs.

The community of Hanover will be thrilled to have access to online self service that will reduce face to face interaction and lineups at the recreation facilities. Implementation of the application will allow for individuals and organizations within the community to make online facility booking requests that can optionally go through an internal approval process. The cloud based technology eliminates any need to purchase or upgrade computer workstations providing additional cost benefits.

Book King’s Training Department is eager and excited to get started with the Rm of Hanover and support them every step of the way during their transition to a new, simplified way of recreation management followed by unlimited support. The implementation is set to take place over the next couple of months.

About Hanover

The RM of Hanover comprises an area slightly larger than the area set aside as a Mennonite reserve in 1873. This tract of land was referred to as the East Reserve. In 1880 the province organized the area as a municipality and named it Hespeler, after the man who brought the first settlers to the area in 1873. On May 25, 1881 the municipality of Hanover was established when the whole province was reorganized. At that time the east reserve was separated into two municipalities, Hespeler in the north and Hanover in the south. In 1890 the municipalities of Hespeler and Hanover were merged to create Hanover, as it is known today. 

Much of the land in Hanover was not ideally suited to grain farming. The area had coarse textured soils, was largely wooded and had major drainage problems. While grain farming was possible some of these characteristics lead to the diversification of agriculture that the municipality displays today. Diversification into dairy, hogs, poultry, honey, potatoes and sugar beets has made Hanover a leader in the production of many of these products in Manitoba. Hanover has been highly productive in hogs since the 1940’s but in the last twenty years the area began to specialize in hog production. This specialization created the need for agriculture related services like feed mills, hatcheries, transportation, farm implements and other agriculture services that make up the economic base of Hanover today.
