Host Fee Application

The CHRIMS Host Fee Application is a simulcast contract management tool that is utilized and shared by your Legal, Accounting and Simulcasting Departments.

This application will house and centralize all pertinent information from your simulcast contracts making it easy for the necessary departments

  • Ability to enter all variations of host fee rates currently used throughout the industry including rates as a percentage of handle, rates as a percentage of takeout, rates by pool type, flat daily rates and more
  • Get your customized ‘rates page’ created and printed right from the Host Fee Application
  • The Host Fee Application will alert the user when contracts are set to expire
