The interactions between the ranger and players are often contentious and frustrating for everyone involved. Historically, rangers will use "rules of thumb" and subjective information to address golf pace of play issues. Over the past decade, systems like FAIRWAYiQ use data to identify slow groups and address the issue objectively.

2018 was the first time we had committed ourselves to an ‘event’ like the Golfdom Summit and thought that documenting our experience was valuable. Prior to committing to the Summit that year in 2018, the FAIRWAYiQ team decided that we needed to adopt a few principles in order to meet Golf’s operators where they were at; and in turn, we would listen to the market and develop a product that would help them manage their labor and equipment more efficiently.

Our mission at FAIRWAYiQ, for maintenance, is to limit the amount of unnecessary data entry by Superintendents. What we were missing in 2019 was the ability to accurately know, with precision, which people operated certain equipment units and vehicles on 2nd and 3rd tasks. The FAIRWAYiQ partnership with taskTracker (Advanced Scoreboard), while still growing and integrated in our 2020 plan, was limited in 2019. It was limited primarily in knowing who operated the 2nd and 3rd tasks during the day. The uncertainty in 2nd and 3rd tasks would sometimes require Superintendents to add extra data components. It was something we found to be, quite frankly, unacceptable.
