CLIENT STORIES – VÄXJÖBRIDGEN, VÄXJÖ, SWEDEN
Both the treasurer and members are glad to have eliminated cash
Växjöbridgen is one of the biggest bridge clubs in Sweden and a member of Svenska Bridgeförbundet, the Swedish bridge association. Växjöbridgen has its own 260 m2 premises with room for 30 tables, and has around 300 members. They play two tournaments a day, three days a week, just over 10,000 players a year in total. They have been using Bridgetime Pay since January 2017 and have two tablets for paying tournament fees and for extras like coffee and cake. Glenn Nilsson, club chairman, explains why they chose Bridgetime Pay.
– Bridgetime Pay has saved the club treasurer a lot of work. Managing large quantities of cash is also a risk if someone finds out about it, and it is a relief for the treasurer to eliminate the risk of theft and the related stress.
– For the players, it is also a big advantage as they no longer need to take cash to tournaments. Members deposit say SEK 500 in their club account and when they come to the tournament premises they just need to register and approve the payment on the club’s tablet. Coffee and any snacks are also managed cashlessly in Bridgetime Pay.
– We can’t imagine going back to cash at Växjöbridgen.

“I have also played with other database-based systems with data entered via tablets and have found that, as far as I know, Bridgetime is the most complete system.”
