Why are you using Active Network? With an increasing number of events and entrants, our current in house solution was inflexible and taking too much time to administer. It is now a lot simpler for us to provide a secure entry experience. The downside is the administration fee, however we feel this is a small cost for a seamless entry experience, peace of mind and security.
