Initially, we were helping track participants in horse rides using a large whiteboard. This helped the event organizers understand where everybody was located for safety accountability.
We realized that the data gathered could be digitized to provide more useful information, including the ETAs of the participants at the various checkpoints. This also helped with coordinating the volunteers at the checkpoints so they would not be there longer than necessary.
Now, we have evolved the system again, to make the information available to the event participants/support teams even when they are away from base camp. This takes the stress away from the organizers, while adding to their ability to see where everyone is, or will be on the course.
We were highlighted for our support at a National Championship Endurance Horse Ride.
