What Others Have Said

The first race you all timed for us, my 7th grade son was racing Varsity for the first time...My husband walked up to him 30 seconds before the race...told him his start time was in 30 seconds. Our kid ran to the start taking off his jacket and putting his bib on (upside down) and ended up skiing with his pants on :) The results showed he was dead last when in reality he won. Your gopro videos captured everything - you fixed the results in under a few hours and that night you all had a lot of races going on.

I'm a VP of Sales and Customer Service and I've worked with your organization twice on errors and have been so impressed with your response and resolution time. Keep on doing what you are doing - I'd love to have our company respond so quickly!! Nice Job!

The GSE Advantage

Our Timing System...

RFID Timing RFID (chip) Timing: Ultra - The ultimate rifd timing/chip timing system. We chose the Ultra system because it is one of the leading technologies in RFID timing and chip timing. It allows us the option of being able to source UHF tags from anywhere, meaning we keep our prices competitive with rfid timing or chip timing providers without compromising quality.

Nordic Ski Technology

Our Nordic Ski process uses a gantry structure with four or more overhead antennae spanning 18'- 26' or more as the situation requires. Participants wear vest-type bibs with an RFID tag adhered to the inside front and back of the bib. Below is a video indicating how to attach the Nordic Ski adhesive tags.

The GSE Mission

To make fitness event management, including related school sports, a more enjoyable, healthful, and social experience for all participants, to support the worthy causes that these events contribute to, to make the work easier for the event director, and to do this at a fee that is affordable and margin-based, rather than driven by what we think the market will bear.
