Sotics MatchDayAccreditation - Press, Media and Photographer registration


MatchDay Accreditation is a virtual accreditation product that enables media or volunteers apply for event accreditation through an automated, online registration process taking away the hassle for event organisers.

The assigning of match day accreditation is all processed through email requiring nothing more from the venue manager than an approving tick in the box. Each event has a registration deadline, after which time accreditation requests can be recorded but are flagged as late, while approving or rejecting hundreds of requests at a time is quick and easy. Once the accredited list has been finalised, administrators can export the full details of accredited journalists and the necessary files containing the corresponding photos for use on printed passes.

It can be quickly and easily integrated with your website and with fixed pricing that includes Sotic's support and all maintenance and upgrades, it's extremely cost-effective. No ALT tag specified

MatchDay Accreditation can also be seamlessly integrated with our Virtual Press Office and mailing platforms providing a one-stop shop for media where they can apply for accreditation, sign up for releases and access protected content such as logos, photographs, media guides and statistics.

The MatchDay Accreditation system is totally flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of other areas of your business such as providing accreditation for attendees at events and conference registration as well as volunteer management and the whole system can be delivered in multiple languages.

Sotic clients who presently use MatchDay Accreditation include the Welsh Rugby Union, the Irish Rugby Football Union, Leinster Rugby, The Tour of Britain Cycling, The Women's Tour, European Professional Club Rugby and Westgate Press Agency.
