Hi, I'm Tobias, and I'm a web developer in Melbourne, Australia, specializing in Ruby on Rails and Coffeescript
The Admin System was my first project at Chess Kids, and started as a system to automate the process of collecting entries for tournaments. It was quickly expanded with CRM functionality for keeping track of Chess Kids clients, programs, tournaments and staffing.
Notable features include graphical timetable displays, geographic linking between schools, ample reports and charting, automatic PDF and email generation and delivery, fax and SMS gateway integration , revenue reports, and a customized record filtering system to allow admins to easily drill down into the database.
The public facing interface for the Admin System allowed users to browse and enter classes and tournaments. These responsibilities have now been assigned to Tornelo, which has been integrated with the Admin System.
