"An excellent and well thought out tool. Easy to use and really takes the strain out of organising and running an event. Would highly recommend."

Kihapp helps you keep score electronically and speed up the tournament by determining winners instantly.
Scores can be projected on a silver screen and streamed live to the Internet.
Because Kihapp keeps a record of every score, matches can be replayed later with the scores overlaid.
All of this is possible without any expensive equipment or complicated setup. A video editor isn't required either. A few phones and a steady wifi is enough.
Receive your registrations through an easy online form. No more collecting registrations from email, snail mail, or SMS. No more importing 200 competitors on the night before the competition. No more fixing incorrect registrations, or figuring out poor handwriting.
Kihapp understands weight classes, ranks, genders, height, age, and any other variable you might want to make divisions by. There's an extensive set of defaults, so you won't need to define every weight class by hand. And if your set of divisions isn't available, just get in touch and we'll put them in for you.
Kihapp remembers who you registered to previous tournaments, so you never need to import a competitor twice. Never forget a student's birthday again!
Handling cash can be such a hassle. Kihapp helps you charge credit cards and receive PayPal payments.
Credit cards are processed with the help of Stripe, which is available in more than 20 countries.
Kihapp also helps you track offline transactions and keep tabs on who has paid in cash or by bank transfer.
You can create discounts based on time of registration, and send out discount codes for individual students.
Your job is to judge fairly and ensure the safety of the competitors. Computers are good at making random numbers, so why not leave bracketing to them?
Kihapp supports a number of different bracket systems, including single elimination, round-robins, and group phases. If you want to use something exotic, just get in touch and we'll probably be able to make it happen.
There's a scoresheet mode for disciplines such as kata, where it's not about winning a match but achieving a high score.
All brackets are available in PDF form, so you don't have to worry about losing internet connectivity at the ring.
For live results, a single 3G-capable smartphone is enough to provide connections for an entire tournament.
Kihapp's info screens make sure competitors and coaches know who's up now, who's next, and where. They display the current status on the scoresheet, and announce the winners of matches and categories.
Knowing the current situation in a scoring category makes events such as breaking much more of a thrill. And who doesn't love seeing the name of their student or child on the big screen?
"I would like to take this opportunity to extend my deepest appreciation to Ville Sundberg, the developer of Kihapp. Behind the scenes, he supported me adapting the system to suit our requirements.
With great responsiveness and dedication, he layed the final hand on everything during the night before the Championships so that we could deliver a professional experience on the big screens.
I can recommend using Kihapp for similar competitions."
