Born of necessity and forged in competition, Rhesus is the new benchmark of race timing for event promoters of all types and sizes. Created by Bike Monkey, the team that needed a better system to bring nearly 20,000 people across their own finish lines, this timing software can run off state-of-the-art RFID chips and mats equipment to reliably track thousands of racers down to the fraction of a second or allows for manual entry of smaller numbers of participants as they finish. Results can be processed instantly thanks to the Chrome V8 engine and the entire system can be run offline on a simple laptop.

Your event’s primary product is your customer’s finish time. Rhesus puts you in charge of that product and makes it easier and cheaper to deliver it than ever before.
