FAQs

What kinds of products does CDE Software produce?

We produce a line of software products for the sport of bowling, which include:

  • League management products for league secretaries to track scores, points, standings and statistics.
  • Tournament management products for tournament managers to track scores, standings and statistics for tournaments.
  • Sidepot management products to manage brackets and high game sidepots that are usually done during league or tournament play.
  • Clip art products to dress up reports or create flyers or other league, tournament or center promotions.
  • Electronic signage products for kiosks at bowling centers.

 

Are there actually bowlers who work in your company?

Absolutely.  Our staff is comprised of league and tournament bowlers as well as former center management staff.  We understand the sport and practice it.  

 

How can I order your products?

The best way is via our online store.  However, we can take orders by phone or fax too.

 

When does the next BLS come out?

Our deadline is always Labor Day, but usually have the software available for download weeks before.

 

Does your league software support the United States Bowling Congress (USBC)?

Absolutely.  We work closely with the USBC to make sure each product supports the rules, awards, applications, membership cards and other important details it was designed for so that leagues certified through USBC are properly managed.

 

Does your league software support the Canadian Tenpin Federation (CTF)?

Yes. We also work closely with the CTF, just like USBC, to make sure each product supports the rules, awards, applications, membership cards and other important details it was designed for so that leagues certified through USBC are properly managed.

 

Can the league software be licensed to the league itself, so if the secretary changes, the software remains property of the league?

Yes. Just make sure the league name is designated during checkout in the online store or mentioned during phone ordering.

 

Is there a discount for a league who needs to buy the software for the secretary and treasurer (or president)?

Yes.  We have a second license promotion that requires the software be licensed to the league and can not be transferred to a different league.  Call our sales department for more information. 

 

Can the association purchase one copy of the league software and distribute to all the secretaries in the association?

No.  The license for the league software states it is for one computer only and each computer the software is installed on must have a unique serial number. We do offer association discounts for multiple-copy purchasing.  

 

Can I transfer the software to someone else?

Providing that the software has not reached end-of-life, yes. We must receive the completed license transfer form available on the website and process before the transfer is made.
