Active Timing provides a complete, simple, accurate and reliable sports timing service. We eliminate the pressure associated with the sometimes hectic and demanding pre-event and race-day registration, plus timing your event to a high standard and producing accurate results; allowing your team of staff and volunteers to concentrate on other aspects of running the event.
We provide timing services for a number of different sporting disciplines: Running (Road and Off Road), Cycling (MTB and Road), Triathlon, Duathlon, Multisport - and we are involved in timing major events both in New Zealand and overseas.
Our services continues post event. Confirmed results are published on our web based results portal within 24 hours on completion of the race. In addition, should you have your own website, you can easily link to our results portal or we can provide you with electronic results in text, html and pdf formats.
If you want to take your event to the next level contact us for fast, accurate and professional timing services.
Using a combination of our hardware and software we can provide accurate and reliable results every time. We believe we have the best technology available suited to events of all types and sizes.
To ensure the race director can commence prize giving on time we can run preliminary results at any stage throughout the duration of the day, which can also be displayed to the public. At the end of the an event a race director can display results on the event website in a number of ways, pdf, excel or a direct link into our fully searchable web based results portal.
Active Timing uses a web based results portal enabling it to upload results during an event so that members of the public watching the event online at home can keep track of the leaders or a specific athlete they are watching. This is a powerful tool for any event in New Zealand. To be able to utilise this facility we will require good internet access.
Website Hosting of Results
Active Timing utilises a web based results portal to display your results in a easy to access manner and allows competitors to search through them in a number of different ways. The feedback we have recevied from both race directors and competitos has been very positive with the look and feel of the results portal.
We have the ability to send results by SMS to friends, family and competitors throughout the day. This can include finish times only but for the more complex events the SMS results can include split times during the day so thatat athlete can be tracked by SMS from start to finish.
Additional costs will apply and subject to internet access.
As part of the web based results we utilise we also have the ability for each competitor to download their own certificate in pdf format and then print out. All we require is the certificate that you want to use and we can do the rest - displaying information such as name, time, position etc. If you currently provide printed certificates as part of your event then this is a way to reduce your costs and if you have not considered certificates for your event previously, then this is definitely an extra item you can add to enhance your event at a minimal cost.
The staff involved with Active Timing has years of event management experience which we can use to help streamline your event registration service. We can also run the registration process for you! We have the ability to easily allow for ‘On the Day’ entries and these can be added into the system ensuring fast & accurate results for everyone who competes.
We have substantial experience in both timing and running events and realise a major issue is the design of artwork that makes up entry forms, clothing and other promotional material. We can also organise the printing of race numbers for you. Contact us for further information.
We can arrange online entries for your event. Please email us with yoru requirements and we will contact you with regard to costs and other requirements. Utilising on online entry system is fast, accurate and definitely saves on your labour costs for an event.
One of the strengths of the software we use when timing races is the use of commentator screens during an event to identify competitors as they cross over timing points, especially close to the finish line. We normally use a spotter timing point anywhere from50m to 100m away from the finish line so a commentator can read their information from the screen and welcome them back after a hard race. The system can be used to identify birthdays and we can also upload other specific competitor information such as occupation and other personal information that the race commentator can make use of during the event. We have recevied very postive feedback when this system has been utilised in events we have timed and it definitely enhances the event.
This system can also be used for an event medical team to access competitors medical information, including emergency contact details. Also, we have the ability to set up a separate laptop as an information booth so that members of the public can check out the race results.
Other Equipment Hire
Over the years we have been involved in events we have picked up a number of different pieces of equipment that can be used during events such as crowd barriers, start/finish gantry and many others. If you have a specific need contact us for further information.
