O2CM Features


A Brief History of O2CM Feature Development

O2CM began as a simple email registration system for a small local event. It quickly became a database driven online registration system scheduling tools and posted schedule. This was soon modified to be an onsite tool as well, keeping the registrar, emcee and scrutineer in communications as to who was dancing each event.

With the advent of affordable handheld devices around 2002, Dell Axims were incorporated into the system to supply even better communications with on-deck. Then came the highlight of the system – an electronic marking system. Over the next decade, accounting and scheduling tools for all types of ballroom events were developed as well as improvements throughout the electronic marking system.

In 2013, the system was updated to be more flexible with current technologies. Now the organizer can manage his event through a website, without installing a windows application. The Electronic system is web based as well, making the availability and versatility of pads much greater. This rewrite also incorporated additional ideas such as live.o2cm.com, where the audience and competitors can follow along with the activities on their smart phones.
