Walton Chasers launches new software for Electronic punching:
Walton Chasers in conjunction with Alan Hartley ( an orienteer and database consultant) of Hartley IT services have produced a new database solution for use with Sportident electronic punching.
The new software, which will be launched at the Colour Coded event on June 30th, enables much faster entry on the day, using the BOF database and automatic analysis in order to determine which course has been run.
It is the intention that the software becomes available to all clubs free of charge. More details will be available after the trial event in June.
