SportSoftware used successfully at the World Orienteering Championships
From 4.-11.8.2018, the Elite World Orienteering Championships (WOC) took place in the regions around Riga and Sigulda in Latvia.
A main goal for the organisers from the Latvian Orienteering Federation (LOF) was to prove that the high level required for result processing and live reporting can be achieved for much less money than other WOCs needed during the past 15-20 years. This year it was the first time that the SportSoftware applications OE2010 and OS2010 were used exclusively for the Elite WOC, after many years seeing the organisers using other very expensive, always new-developed solutions (mostly accompanied by the SportSoftware as a reliable backup system). By the way, for all other IOF championships like WMOC, JWOC, EYOC, the SportSoftware has already been a defacto standard for many years.
The SportSoftware includes nearly all features which are necessary for managing and publishing radio and finish times which can be displayed live in the internet and on TV. For the WOC in Latvia, I implemented a special new time taking function which allows to send the official finish times to the TV system automatically. The handling of the existing time taking solution has been improved for the requirements of WOC.
This feature will be included in the new OE12 V.12.0.
