We`re Finish Time

ABOUT US

Finish Time is used by race timing companies to produce results at races like marathons, fun runs, triathlons, duathlons, ocean swims, MTB stage races, pro cycling events, etc.
This is its sole focus and the reason it is rapidly growing in success.
Although perfectly suited to professional, full-time race timers, it can be used by clubs and other small organisations. However there is an initial learning curve which might not suit organisations which change timing personnel often.

So how hard is it to learn?

Not hard at all. It usually requires my close assistance for your first couple of races and I am more than willing to provide that assistance. Although you will still be learning new tricks and techniques after a year, you will know enough after one race to at least be able to do what you need to get results out fast and accurately.

Live Results.

Results are computed on a continuous basis, meaning even the most complex and large races can have results available at any time, not only as the leader crosses the line, but even before that, offering live leaderboard updates if you have timing splits en-route.
All data can be fed live to a website so that anyone watching from around the world can see results real-time, as they unfold. No uploading of files, or clicking of buttons, it just happens. Send SMS messages within moments of someone crossing a timing mat, and track the leaders real-time using GPS.

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

True Live Results

True Live Results

Results are computed continuously throughout the race, meaning that even the most complex and large races can have results available in real time. As the leader crosses the line and even before that, offering live leaderboard updates if you have timing splits en-route. All data can be fed live to a website so that anyone watching from around the world can see results real-time, as they unfold. No uploading of files, or clicking of buttons, it just happens. We can send automated SMS messages within moments of someone crossing a timing point. •Split times, positions, gun times, net times, finish times all recorded live with results calculations running in cycle at intervals we determine (for example every 20 seconds) •Any changes needed to be made to the database (the race file) are updated when we calculate the results in the next cycle •If we need to add in a late entry we can do so at any time, as the raw chip times are stored in one database and the competitor information is stored in another, linked by a common key •Presentation results can be generated at the click of a button, at any time the event organiser desires. We custom create reports to suit the event, with standard report types being: ◦Top 5 male and female overall ◦Top 3 in each category ◦closest to nominated time (very popular in open water swimming) ◦team results (for example 4 competitors race as individuals with their combined times becoming the team time, with team rankings)

Flexibility & Problem Solving

Flexibility & Problem Solving

Change your race setup from a triathlon to a fun run mid-race. Change all your age categories mid-race. Re-assign everyone to new wave starts, change the gun start time, fix genders, move entrants between events, all mid-race. In other words RaceTec is totally flexible and able to handle the worst that can be thrown at it. Advanced checks and balances as well as problem solving functionality helps you find and quickly resolve issues when they arise. This provides peace of mind that your entrants/athletes will not slip through without being recorded and assigned to their relevant event and category. Any finishline disputes can be dealt with way before prize giving. LIVE COMMENTATOR DISPLAY We can turn on and off certain information as well as display special comments, giving the commentary team more to talk about throughout the event.A number of screen options means the system can also display the current leaderboard by any given category, switch into search mode and provide full information on a competitor, scroll results and change between all connected timing points (splits).Standard reporting fields include: •Race number •Event/distance •Name •Race Time •Category •Overall Position •Category Position •Gender Position

Unparalleled Scalability

Unparalleled Scalability

We can handle the biggest and smallest races effortlessly. A marathon with 50,000 people and splits every mile would total over a million records for splits alone. No problem at all for RaceTec. Connect as many client computers to the RaceTec database as your operating system allows. Leverage the full power of Microsoft SQL Server, one of the worlds top database servers, to fine-tune a heirarchical, normalised database able to handle millions of transactions a minute. FinishTime can cater for any of your event requirements, including but not limited to the services below: UHF disposable or RFID system, Online Registration, Live timing and results, Live commentator system, Results screen (TV), Live mobile phone tracker, Race day registration support, Results to web, Process late entries on race day, Email, Online certificates, Additional Timing Points.

No Limits

No Limits

There are no limits on the number of categories, splits, wave starts, races and entrants. There are 2 levels of categories (primary and secondary), and an unlimited number of gender types (male, female, mixed ...) providing an unlimited heirarchy of category results. You can have an unlimited number of team categories, each containing an unlimited number of teams, with each team having an unlimited number of members. RaceTec will calculate results for a 50,000 entrant fun run with multiple splits as easily and nearly as fast as a 100 entrant triathlon. There is absolutely no limit to the size of your race. Results can be uploaded to a schedule to suit other sponsorships if required. We generally upload results to the web immediately after entrants have finished and whilst at the Venue. This service includes: •Uploading the event logo for branding •Direct links to the specific results for the event website •Summary details page for each event which includes number of male and female finishers in each category, average times, fastest times and slowest times overall and in each category; •Full race results including split times and placings, as well as Gun Time and Net Time results where a start mat is used
