A new way to register for recreation programs is coming to Vernon.
Starting Dec. 3, people will be able to register for recreation activities online and in person. Online registration will be available 24 hours a day from smart phones, tablets and computers. New features include browsing available programs and receiving email updates.
“In 2015, we were advised that our recreation software was about to become obsolete, and would no longer be supported by the vendor,” said Shayne Wright, recreation co-ordinator.
“At the same time, we have been hearing from customers that they wanted a better way to register for programs and services online. In response, we started exploring the potential of purchasing online registration software. Our goals were to improve our customer service, increase the number of people we serve, create operational efficiencies, and better market and promote our services.”
The city has partnered with 21 other local governments to hire PerfectMind Technologies to provide the new software. PerfectMind Technologies Inc. serves more than 5,000 clients.
To set up your new registration account, go to www.gvrec.ca or stop in at the Vernon Recreation Complex. Winter program registration opens Dec. 3. Users are encouraged to create new accounts in advance.
