"We use 'Highland Scrutineer' for both entry management and scrutineering for our smaller monthly competitions and championships and are delighted with both the ease of use and powerful scrutineering functions!!"


Helen Garland, Tayside Highland Dancing Association


"No more reaching for the calculator and rule book to split championship ties - 'Highland Scrutineer' does it all at a click of a button."


Bill Baillie, Granite City Championships


"I run many small competitions where the numbers in each class are relatively small resulting in variation in number of prizes awarded. 'Highland Scrutineer' lets you set the number of prizes in each age group and then scrutineers respectively.


George Mitchelson, Tay Folk Dance and Music
