Time is running out on Class and Safari Registration Software –
are you prepared?

Active Network owns three recreation software programs:  Class; Safari and ActiveNet. Active Network will no longer support Safari after 2015 and Class after November 2017, thereby leaving only one product on the market: ActiveNet. The majority of municipal recreation departments in BC currently use one or the other of these soon-to-be-defunct programs. The impact of this on municipalities is great as they all search other viable options. 
 
To help our sector deal with this issue, the BCRPA held a Recreation Registration Software Forum on November 6/7, 201 to facilitate discussion and collaborative action. Produced in collaboration with a steering committee of BCRPA members and representatives of the Municipal Information Systems Association of BC (MISA BC), the programme included a tradeshow and vendor presentations of their products, dialogue between vendors and clients (recreation staff and their IT representatives), and an in-camera discussion of options and potential approaches for collective action. 
 
The Forum provided a platform from which delegates learned about viable software solutions and collectively discussed common issues and actions.

Feedback from North Vancouver Recreation Commission's province-wide registration software functionality survey was also shared at the forum for discussion and exploration.

Material from the Forum

Unedited videos of the vendor presentations are now available, as well as an introduction to the Delta Collaborative Model and results of the recreation software functionality survey. A Summary Report of the in-camera discussions has also been produced.
 
You can access all of this documentation on the BCRPA Collaboration Site. We encourage you to continue the conversation online, to post related documents, and otherwise collaborate on the issue.
