Show Processing Services
Longhedge Show Processing provide a comprehensive solution for all your show processing needs via our partners First Place Processing, ranging from everything you would expect from a basic pre-show processing service through to our flagship FPP Live service designed to enhance the show organiser and competitor experience before, during and after the show is complete. To find out more about these services, please see below and click on the relevant links for more information.
Competitors can register on the site free of charge, giving them easy access to entering all shows that we process. With over 15000 registered users, it is one of the most popular online entry systems in the UK, created to allow competitors to enter shows in just a few clicks.
Our pre-show processing package is our starting level for accepting online entries. It allows the Show Organisers to get on with other aspects of show organisation leaving all the processing to Longhedge Show Processing. We will deal with all the paper entries, manage online entries, check payments, chase up any outstanding payments and deal with all entry enquiries for you. We include the facility to handle banking of cheques and regularly transferring online payments directly to your show accounts, which,coupled with our comprehensive reports, greatly reduces the workload for show secretaries and treasurers. Show organisers can keep up to date with how entries are progressing via access to their own area of the FPP Show Admin site.
Our new FPP Live service takes us into the realms of paperless show processing with electronic calling in systems, electronic scriming and instant results available online as soon as dogs complete their runs. Whilst you may have seen the obvious benefits as a competitor, where you can see how rings are progressing and view your results instantly, the benefits for the Show Organisers are massive.

Our Championship package is now part of FPP Live, and includes live results, updates of the current dog running in the ring, instant calculation of Finalists and an optional dedicated display of the current leaderboard.
