Robot Inspection

Inspectors use GMS to share checklists, notes, pictures, etc. Teams can be placed in inspection queues and assigned to RIs. Inspector Managers work totally free of paper. View Best Practices with GMS,


GMS supports judging at FIRST events by facilitating the tasks for the Judge Advisor, Judges and the Judge Match Observers. GMS offers each of these roles with functions customized for their specific tasks.

Match Queuing

Queue Managers use tablets to easily track teams for each match. Pit Runners check off teams on a color coded Pit map while others check off teams on a match schedule.

Team Scouting

Teams get Pit and Match scouting. Notes from multiple scouts are automatically merged. Teams also see the latest Pit Admin announcements & Match Schedules.
