La Crete Recreation Society Selects Book King Software

La Crete Recreation Society Selects Book King Software

November 12th, 2021 – Victoria, BC – La Crete Recreation Society has chosen Book King’s Recreation Management Software by Pacific Tier Solutions based in Victoria, BC

Book King’s Scheduling, Public Access and Point of Sale Modules were recently purchased by the La Crete Recreation Society in La Crete, Alberta. LCRS will be implementing the system this fall with primary use at the Northern Lights Recreation Centre. Book King Software will help to automate facility management processes for the Society’s facilities by providing a complete and affordable rules-based scheduling and services solution.

The Society is making the switch from a paper-based system to a digital format in the cloud. Book King’s all in one capabilities for scheduling, Point-of-Sale invoicing, and reporting will reduce staff workload and administrative overhead by streamlining the facility scheduling business processes. The web-based application allows for online facility booking requests, reviews and approvals reducing face to face interactions.

This project will have the Book King Software Team and the La Crete Recreation Society working together to implement the application to meet their facility scheduling requirements. As a hosted solution, Book King is fast and easy to implement as IT resources are not required for installation and maintenance. Users can be up and running within days.

About La Crete Recreation Society

The name La Crete came from what the early settlers described the ridge of land as resembling a rooster’s comb (which in French is La Crete.) The Rivard brothers came from Quebec during World War 1 and were the ones who filed for land in 1914 at the mouth of the small creek that flowed into the Peace River. The original landing is about nine kilometers to the southwest of the Hamlet and called La Crete’s Landing. Today 50% of La Crete residents are under the age of 25. The majority of the people speak “Plautdietsch” or “Low German” even though all businesses serve their customers in English.

There are many activities held during the year in La Crete that brings the community together. Each spring the La Crete Spring Trade Fair is held in April at the Northern Lights Recreation Centre. The Agriculture Society puts on 2 events each year. Farmer’s Day held in June and Pioneer Days in September celebrate the history of La Crete.
