    Straight Score announces the launch of ShootPro Cloud

    The next chapter in ATA/PITA Trap Shooting history begins today

    Straight Score is proud to announce its new ShootPro Cloud (SPC) service. SPC is the culmination of two years of development and testing, using advanced Internet and cloud computing technologies. Available for use immediately, the main SPC module can power any size ATA or PITA Trap Shooting tournament. The main SPC module includes everything needed to run the back-office operation:

    • Classification
    • Squadding
    • Cashiering
    • Scoring
    • Payoffs
    • Shoot Offs
    • Scoreboard/Leaderboard
    • Accounting

    In the future, Straight Score will be announcing additional modules, including but not limited to:

    • Mobile App for Shooters
    • Mobile App for Trap Personnel
    • Live Shoot Off Scoring and Notifications

    Straight Score LLC was formed two years ago, at a time when Shooting Sports Software (3S Shoot Pro) was no longer able to continue. At that time, the Straight Score founders made four fundamental commitments to themselves:

    • Straight Score would function as a profitable, long term, growing, sustainable business that the sport of Trap Shooting can depend upon in the future.
    • Straight Score would focus on using modern and emerging computing technologies to enhance the enjoyment of Trap Shooting, following the path of other major sports.
    • Straight Score would devote its resources to creating a 3S Shoot Pro replacement that would be easy to use and support.
    • Straight Score would make every effort to continue maintaining the 3S Shoot Pro software and pricing until a suitable replacement was available.

    Clubs and Organizations are urged to study the questions and answers in this press release and begin planning immediately. Clubs are required to have Internet access. ShootPro Cloud was designed to minimize bandwidth requirements and can function on cellular and satellite connections.


    Questions and Answers

    How much does the ShootPro Cloud service cost?

    ShootPro Cloud charges a $3.00 daily technology fee for each shooter, plus a $35 setup fee for each shoot.

    Does ShootPro Cloud require Internet access?

    Yes, ShootPro Cloud requires Internet access. SPC was designed to minimize the use of data bandwidth, thereby enabling it to work over cellular and satellite connections when necessary. We recommend that clubs speak to local companies knowledgeable in commercial grade Wi-Fi solutions.

    What kind of computer equipment is required?

    ShootPro Cloud simply uses a web browser, such as Chrome, Safari, or Edge. This means that it will work on your PC/Mac, Chromebook, or iPad/Tablet. Laser printers are recommended for printing reports, receipts, and checks.

    Is it easy to learn?

    Yes, we believe it is significantly easier to learn and operate than 3S Shoot Pro. We are building a library of video training modules with more than a dozen already created and ready to view. Classifiers, Cashiers, and others can train and practice in the comfort of their homes.

    How do I set up a shoot?

    We believe that you have better things to do than figure out how to properly tweak dozens of settings before your shoot… that’s why we setup the shoot for you. Clubs simply complete a shoot enrollment form, attach a copy of the program if you have one, and let us do the heavy lifting.

    How does my club or organization get started?

    An authorized club or organization representative should complete a registration form at register.shootpro.cloud. It will only take a few minutes. After reviewing your form, we will create your club and provide you with login information.

    Are you still selling 3S Shoot Pro?

    No, all sales of 3S Shoot Pro have been discontinued.

    Are you still renewing existing 3S Shoot Pro subscriptions?

    3S Shoot Pro subscriptions are being renewed based upon the license type.

    I have a shoot coming up too soon to switch to SPC, now what?

    Straight Score will work individually with clubs to extend subscriptions for short periods of time as needed to prevent disruption of shoots. Straight Score reserves the right to deny extensions at our discretion.

    Still have questions? Join us

    Straight Score will be holding a reoccurring zoom meeting every Wednesday at 12PM Central through March 1st. Please join us via zoom at https://join.zoom.us.

Beginning August 15th, Straight Score will require that all support phone calls be scheduled in advance using our new calendar app. By scheduling in advance, you will receive a phone call from us at a convenient time and can be assured of our undivided attention.

    We understand that sometimes emergencies come up. To ensure that all of our customers have equal access to support, we will be charging $85/hour for all unscheduled assistance, billed in 15-minute increments. To prevent this from happening, we strongly encourage the following:

    1. Setup your shoots well in advance and test that everything works as expected.

  • 3S is now under new management

    3S Shooting Sports Software is pleased to announce that its portfolio of products and services has been acquired by Straight Score, LLC, a newly formed technology company dedicated to the clay target shooting industry.

    3S Shooting Sports Software has been a leading developer of trapshooting cashiering systems for more than 20 years. 3S has established a solid reputation for accuracy, reliability, and customer support. The founder, George Cook, dedicated his life to the trapshooting community. His work has transformed the sport of trapshooting by providing shooters with rapid, efficient computer services at a time when hand calculations were the only choice. We congratulate George on his retirement and look forward to seeing him on the trapline for many years to come.

    Straight Score, LLC is a collaboration between 3S Shooting Sports Software, creator of Shoot Pro, and Lite Release, LLC, creator of PreSquad.com. These two shooting software companies will be working together to create the next generation of cashiering systems. In the coming months, significant resources using a variety of technologies will be committed to enhancing the clay target shooting experience, while reducing the workload of running a shoot.

    Current 3S customers can expect to receive the same support levels that they have enjoyed over the years. As we transition to new forms of technology, we may or may not keep the 3S name, but we will always keep our club and shooters first and foremost in our goals.
