Intuitive and saves me so much time!

The program has a wide range of tie-breaks, and the ability to set filters significantly speeds up the preparation for the closing ceremony. A big advantage is the ability to use online payments when registering, and many players appreciate pairings sent via text message. This also speeds up getting to assigned chess boards, especially in large tournaments.

The entire service is very intuitive and saves a lot of time!

Love the modern functionality

We had doubts about certifying the online application. After many months of testing, the committee unanimously approved the software as stable and meeting all FIDE requirements.

The intuitive interface and modern functions such as sending text messages with pairing have made ChessManager my favorite program for running individual chess tournaments.

ChessManager is a universal program that facilitates the work of an arbiter from many devices, regardless of the operating system.

Within three years I have already held 66 local, provincial, and national chess tournaments with the help of ChessManager. They are all saved in my tournament tab, so you can use them at any time.

World Rapid & Blitz Championships 2021

I had the chance to use ChessManager during preparation for the World Rapid & Blitz Championships 2021 in Warsaw.

I found the interface to be very user friendly and intuitive. The rating lists are updated automatically every month and filtering players to award prizes in special categories only takes a few seconds.

ChessManager has saved me a lot of time

Using ChessManager has saved me a lot of time that would have otherwise gone into manual data entry. I love the fact that I can update tournament and/or player information while on the go using my phone or tablet instead of having to wait till I have access to my laptop as is the case with other pairings programs. The beautiful and intuitive design interface is the cherry on top.
