Moorestown, NJ – RunSignUp announced the commencement of development on RaceDay Scoring, their next generation open scoring platform that will become the next generation of The Race Director over the coming years. RaceDay Scoring aims to take advantage of modern technology to create a “Goldilocks” scoring option that is neither too simple nor too hard, and is not proprietary to any specific hardware option.
The early stages of the project, which should yield initial components in 6 months with work continuing throughout 2017, is being introduced to the public via a Webinar on February 22nd (2:00pm ET). The RaceDay Scoring webinar is one of RunSignUp’s series of Endurance Event Education Webinars, and will cover:
- An overview of RaceDay Go, the platform that houses RaceDay Scoring
- The goals of RaceDay Scoring
- RaceDay Scoring Architecture
– Native PC and Mac or Cloud-Based
– Connectors to timing equipment and GPS data
– Filters for Timing Locations
– Scoring Engine & Scoring Module
- Massively scalable real-time results
- Setup and use: wizard, dashboard, graphical, JSON-based API
“Even though The Race Director scored over 11 Million finishers last year, new technology creates some great opportunities,” RunSignUp Founder Bob Bickel explained. “We are looking forward to working with timers and partners to create a next generation solution for races.”
