  • Measure your staff's response time to issues on the golf course

  • Protect the turf through golf cart fleet management

How It Works

Achieve Operational Excellence

GPS Sensors Monitor Activity

Screens or GPS sensors are installed in fleet golf carts, private carts, and maintenance equipment. Handheld units are carried by walkers and caddies. The units send data to our cloud application.

Data Insights are Generated

Our algorithms use the data from GPS sensors to watch for outlier scenarios and issues that need to be addressed.

Staff Notified of Issues in Real-time

Staff members are notified about issues they need to address and then follow our recommended process to achieve the desired outcomes.

Implement Optimization Improvements

Use data and insights to make operational improvements that have long-term impact on your golf operation: improve the player experience, reduce average pace of play, reduce turf replacement costs, offset labor costs and add revenue (public facilities).
