NextUp - Tournament Automation & Organization


#1

Hello, I’d like to introduce a project I’ve been working on that aims to help organizers of multi-tournament events manage player matches more efficiently while interfacing with Challonge bracketing. The project is called NextUp - Tournament Automation & Organization. http://nextup.me

Key points:
[list]
[*]Call player matches via text message. - After entering in player information at NextUp, matches will be called to players by text message (where applicable). Each player receives a message naming the opponent, the location to play and the game they are to compete in.

[*]Receive match results via text message. - After players receive a called match via text message, they have the ability to reply with the player’s personal result. The system can automatically verify the results or await manual verification.

[*]Monitor virtual stations. - Virtual stations represent actual stations in your tournament where matches take place. Add a station and open it for matching to start the competition.

[*]Event player identification. - Adding a feature to Challonge; one player over multiple tournaments. If a player is current in a match, the player cannot be called for another match in another tournament (under the same Challonge account) until the first match is finished.
[/list]
For more information, please see the about page. http://nextup.me/about.html

The service is currently free to use but I’ll also ask that tournament organizers interested in using the system please email me at info[at]nextup[dot]me before an event so that I can supervise the server as the tournament goes on and provide some technical support if necessary.
