OES Scoreboards has a product that is quite amazing for many types of venues; VenuRun™. It has been installed in many arenas and venues all over Canada. This is a facility-scheduling system designed to replace your manual whiteboard/chalkboard.

The VenuRun™ database management system can update (or rotate) several schedules automatically on single or multiple screens at a touch of a button. This system uses consistent fonts and colorful graphics which make the content legible and stimulating to the viewer. It is designed to help create, schedule, manage, distribute, and display activities and advertisements on one or more screens from a single server. VenuRun™ can import scheduling data (in Excel format) provided by third-party scheduling applications. This powerful facility-scheduling product allows users to take reservations and schedule events in virtually any venue.

VenuRun™ is a great asset to any arena, school, conference center, recreation or fitness centre. It is also a great managing tool for seminars; ideal locations include cafeterias, lounges, lobbies and conference halls. In arenas, tournaments and dressing room assignments can be displayed in a very detailed and professional manner. Also, recreation centers can show schedules and assigned courts, fitness centers can display the class schedules, and conference centers can display the appropriate presentation and meeting rooms. In addition to being attractive, efficient, modern, and user-friendly, digital signage is environmentally responsible as well. It uses digital displays rather than endless flyers; therefore it can cut down tremendously on paper and ink usage. As you will see, VenuRun™ is a very user friendly tool for all.

We have installed numerous VenuRun™ systems in our local area; including the Western Fair District in 2011 with a recent upgrade to the system for increased efficiency. The Wayne Gretzky Sports Arena in Brantford, the North Middlesex and District Arena (Parkhill), and the Sarnia Sports Entertainment Centre also use this system.

In January, OES Engineers installed and implemented this system in both the Wellesley Arena and the St. Clements Arena, both located in Southwestern Ontario. Also, the Town of Nanton Recreation Centre in Alberta purchased the VenuRun™ Starter Pack. The computer software, called OES VenuRun™ Pro Software, is developed in-house. The installation takes only thirty minutes. OES also provides a thirty minute training session with each purchase. Many installations can be done remotely, as well as on-site. Also, an added advantage – there are no monthly or annual fees unlike most other scheduling software.

OES Scoreboards is always looking for more venues to utilize this great product and make scheduling much easier for their viewers. For more information, see VenuRun™ on the OES Scoreboards website.
