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.
