TBRAC-2018 Professional

TBRAC-2018 Professional promotes the best bracket, sidepot and singles tournament software for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 2012 Server and Windows 2008 Server. CDE uses its experience with bowling software (since 1975) to provide the sport of bowling with the best in bracket and sidepot management software.

It’s very simple to use the software. Add a person’s name, enter the average to use for handicap purposes, assign a lane and then enter the bowler into any additional sidepots or brackets.

CDE Software and TBRAC-2018 Professional feature the best in bracket sidepot management, using a powerful randomization engine that assigns bowlers in a random and fair manner. Sure, you can set bracket assignments to be based on “as the dice is rolled”, but in many cases, bowlers can be assigned multiple times to the same opponent. When there is a large enough field of bowlers, this can be perceived as unfair, causing bowlers to drop out. TBRAC-2018 Professional uses a logical random method that minimizes or eliminates duplicate match-ups in brackets. In fact, TBRAC-2018 Professional can optionally take some extra time and minimize duplicates in the cases that bowlers win the first game. This provides your bowlers a FAIR means of competition and better yet…. you don’t have to do any extra work.

Many of TBRAC-2018 Professional features are features CDE and its BTM and BLS product line have been doing for years. Such features include:

  • Manage as many singles tournaments as you wish (Why pay more for each tournament or number of events)
