Competition Scoring System

Features of the Service

This service is a scoring system for competitions or contests.

Automatic collection from the beginning to the end of the competition. No need to be in front of your PC. After the competition is over, download the data all together. During the competition, the results will be sent to the administrator’s e-mail address each time the scoring of one competition ends. If you register the administrator’s email address on your smartphone, you can check while doing other tasks. Due to the nature of this system, it can be used for remote judging of online competitions and other events.
