Athlinks Custom Finisher Certificates- PHASE 2 RELEASE

After a variety of user input from our ChronoTrack Timers, Event Organizers and Athletes, we’re pleased to announce our next phase of development for our Athlinks Finisher’s Certificate offering on schedule: Custom Finisher Certificates.

Exclusive to our ChronoTrack LIVE Scoring users, “Timer roles” now have access to a new tab in ChronoTrack LIVE Admin that will facilitate & support the management of Custom Finisher Certificates. This service is currently at no cost; however, Athlinks Services is assigning a value of $0.10 USD/per athlete when our Custom Finisher Certificate feature is utilized to demonstrate the market value of this premium feature. The ChronoTrack LIVE scoring software will bring accuracy & connectivity to the athletes (and spectators)- all in concert with each other. As you make race scoring & timing adjustments, in real-time, certificates will automatically be updated to reflect the most accurate appointed certificate-timing data. No need to upload multiple versions of certificate data and be worried what version is what. All the control lives with our Scoring tool. I hope this becomes a great resource to you and your organization as it elevates your “timer offering” to your clients.

SCHEDULED RELEASE PHASE 2: Friday, March 30th, 2018. The ChronoTrack LIVE Admin platform enables the “Finisher’s Certificate” tab for your immediate use and publishing of custom finisher certificates, found under:

Access the applicable ChronoTrack LIVE Event>Scoring tab>Results Options sub-tab>Finisher’s Certificates sub-tab to access our Finisher Certificate tooling.
