Who We Are

IST is a family-owned company that has been in business since 1992. We are swimmers, coaches, swim parents and swimming fans, as well as electrical and software engineers. Our aquatic sports products have been developed by engineers with input from coaches, swimmers and parents to provide the most intuitive, easy-to-use swim timing software out there. Our hardware products were designed using our industrial engineering experience to stand up to the harsh environment of swimming pools and minimize maintenance for the busy coach. They are so rugged that we can offer a 5-year warranty on all of our hardware! We make training volunteers easy, and running meets simple.
