|equineline.com Unveils New Trainer Program|
The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc. (TJCIS) has expanded its state-of-the-art equineline.com Internet service to include a Trainer Program which will help trainers of Thoroughbreds and American Quarter Horses fundamentally change the way they manage their operations.
According to Gary Falter, director of product development for TJCIS, the Trainer Program contains progressive and innovative features to help trainers, along with their assistants and/or bookkeepers, streamline and in many cases automate the business-related details associated with training horses, including billing, accounts receivable, charting and owner communication.
“The introduction of a program for trainers is an important step in developing equineline.com into a comprehensive information network for owners, breeders, trainers and farms,” said Falter.
“Much like the equineline.com Portfolio Service for owners and breeders, the new Trainer Program is designed to simplify stable management by maintaining all of a horse’s daily records in one convenient, secure and permanent location. Based on the information entered for each horse, the program will automatically calculate and produce a variety of reports at the trainer’s request, including billing statements and percent-of-earnings reports which previously involved time and manual calculations.”
The Trainer Program was developed with input from trainers nationwide and is accessible through the Trainer Program icon on the equineline.com menu bar. For a monthly subscription fee, trainers can create a portfolio of the horses under their care and have the ability, among other things, to:
Following a one-month free trial period, the monthly subscription fee for the Trainer Program is $29.95 per month for up to 20 horses, and $10 per month for 10 additional horses.
In addition to the Trainer Program and the Portfolio Service for owners and breeders, equineline.com also provides access to the equineline Reports service where visitors can access a wide assortment of breeding, racing and sales information for both Thoroughbreds and American Quarter Horses.
