Our History, Passion & Where We're Heading


BoutTime was established during 2015 and originated from a software development company called NCCE(est 2005) with staff who had passion for sport for over 23 years. A simple charity event kick started the whole idea to create our own time keeping software.

Using our existing infrastructure & collective knowledge over the past 17 years we created timing software that will meet our sporting requirements and address the lack of features other timing companies could not offer. Creating reliable cloud-based solutions to offer LIVE results during 2015 were nothing new to us. But why wait to cross the finish line for LIVE results? We moved our system forward in terms of technology to provide our athletes, their supporters & MC's with INSTANT split timing, during the race, on the web, the MC's tablet or smartphone & on the TV's at all our events.

Currently BoutTime has one of the most advanced & innovative Time Keeping & Event Management systems in South Africa with seamlessly integrated entry portal interfaces, Race-Day SignUp App for late entrants, spotters for your MC, Instant TV & Web Tracking at splits(even with Triathlons), Project Management modules, integrated financial system and payment portal interface to name a few. Delivering more than 99% accuracy at events. (Past 2 years we had 100% accuracy rate on MTB & Motocross events)

The drawback most other timing companies have is to address the fact that they don’t own the timing software as it is provided by a 3rd party international company together with the timing equipment or that they don’t have access to a senior software development team. BoutTime has both, we source our equipment & disposables from local companies and the software is 100% South African based!

ICASA Approved

Rest assured, all our RFID equipment, chips, readers & antennas are ICASA approved and operates within the legal SA limits.

We believe, you as organiser won't deliver a substandard event, why should your time keeping company use substandard, illegal or knockoff imported equipment at your event, putting your event at risk?

Our Software


Scalability: Because our time keeping system was built with diversity in mind, the interface is simple to learn and implement for part-time timers yet robust enough for professional timers. Quickly configure race timing equipment with a graphic interface, and save common race configurations including age group categories and timing points. Rapidly assign bibs based on division or wave, and dynamically distribute race bibs and timing chips during number collections.

Redundancy

Cloud Servers: Our core elastic cloud server is locally based in the Microsoft Datacentre, ensuring ultimate connection speed, with 2x other failover servers in the UK and USA with a switchover delay of 15 milliseconds. This ensures unlimited scalability when needed, personal data being extremely secure & superb and "always-on" performance.

Race Data: Concerned about a strong internet connection at your event? Our Timing System is an on-premise application that intelligently deals with connectivity challenges. Display the results offline and the system will automatically publish the results when you regain signal.

Flexibility

Add-Ons: Its not all about a world class system, its also about the athletes and organiser experience. Our system consists of the following modules.
