Features that may set your world on fire
Apologies for the slightly cringey title, merely us trying to provide a tenuous link to the impending Guy Fawkes night (non-UK residents, see here).
But we did want to have a quick chat about some of the whizz bang (there we go again…) AwardStage features which, we are reliably informed, help our clients to have successful seasons.
Get up and running in a flash
If you’re new to AwardStage, or even a returning client, then bringing your entry site to life can be done more quickly than you’d think – sometimes in a matter of hours! All of our fees include assisted implementation, a hand to hold if you need/want it!
Updating entries that have already been submitted
It seems that there will always be entrants who don’t complete their entries fully before submission/the entry closing date, or forget to add an attachment….or just want to add an extra piece of vital information! A quick toggle in your settings will allow entrants to make changes to their submitted entries….but only if you’re feeling generous.
Looking for your entries to be scored against different criteria? And need those criteria to have different weightings? No worries; AwardStage judging allows you to choose between having one overall score per entry, or multiple scores per entry. It’ll even work out the average percentage for each, based on your criteria weights.
Discount codes and special entry rates
It’s super simple to set up discount codes, and stipulate everything from the size of the discount, to the time period for which a code is valid. You can even make them entrant-specific. Similarly, if you want to set up different entry rates for different entrant organisations (free for students, for example….or 50% off the base rate for SMEs), then AwardStage can facilitate that.
Simple judging – happy judges!
Your judges are busy people, so you need to make the scoring process as simple and slick as possible. Judges have given the AwardStage platform an average of 4 stars out of 5 for user experience, citing its easy navigation, and the ability to download entries, as particular highlights.
For a more in-depth look at how we look to make awards management as stress-free as possible, we’d encourage you to have a look at our short welcome video; or, even better, drop us a line and tell us what’s been making you tear your hair out, and we’ll see what we can do to help 🙂
