Some of the features of the online system are:

2 - Exhibitor numbers are assigned automatically and are non-duplicating.

3 - Class entries will be made online and maintained in show tag order.

4 - Class entries can be corrected and re-classified.

5 - A real-time count of entries is maintained, allowing for deletions,  additions, and re-classifications.

6 - Show data can be printed out and/or viewed in multiple formats.

7 - Show judging teams will use printed sorted judging lists from which to work.

8 - Each judging team's work can be mirrored electronically for award entry.

The online registration system is also accessible from your mobile device with a device-specific menu system; access is always through the GCOS website, either desktop or mobile.
