Event Booking System


The Scottish Qualifications Authority manages large number of events for schools, colleges and training centres in Scotland.  A system to allow online event booking was developed by Tron Systems to:

  • allow delegates to book events
  • allow SQA to manage bookings
  • provide consistent communications to delegates before and after events
  • automatically create Certificates of Professional Development for delegate who attend certain events
  • allow delegates to download pre-event and post-event materials, including certificates
  • allow easier reporting on past and future events
  • reduce the administrative effort required for event bookings

The system uses IBM XPages on an IBM Domino server.  The XPages Extension Library is used to integrate the system seamlessly with an Ingres relational database.  At the end of the first year of use, the system has more than 11,000 registered delegates and is used to manage bookings on over 200 events per year.
