We at GSE have been hard at work during the off-season to take our "game" up a notch or three. Take a look below at some of the things we have been working on while we keep busy timing Nordic Skiing.
We've done a pretty good job of getting individual results online quickly for some time now, we are now able to do it within 20 or 30 seconds. This now includes team results as well, updated as kids finish.
Along with that, we have finally worked the kinks out of our gTRaXC service, allowing kids and anyone they list as followers to get their results in near-live fashion via email or text message.
gTRaXC also allows parents to create an account so that they can follow their kids' performances even if their son or daughter does not create an account.
We've had splits for some time now, but in 2023 they will go online in near live fashion with team scores compiled on the fly.
Wait, what? Sounds like a minus rather than a plus.
The bottom line (literally) is we feel that the live results display is a thing of the past with results going online and out to users so qickly in so many formats. We have a QR code results sign at every meet so folks can get quick access to the results from their phone.
Investing in that type of technology would force us to raise our price point with no real value added. But that's just us, I guess...
