FAIRWAYiQ, the golf industry leader in golf course analytics and management technology, has partnered with CalAmp to deliver an advanced handheld GPS device that is used by golf courses to monitor, track, optimize walker and caddie rounds, and manage staff.  The handheld device has a battery that lasts days on a single charge, is IP67 water protection rated, and charges on a wireless mat instead of wires.

“FAIRWAYiQ has done it again and delivered a superior handheld unit unlike anything else in the market.  The wireless charging is convenient and simple, requiring no wires.  The units are durable which we need given the use they get on the golf course.  We continue to be impressed by FAIRWAYiQ’s ability to innovate and deliver a quality system at a fair price.”, says Michael Scott of The Polo Club of Boca Raton, Florida. 

“Our handheld GPS tracker elevates the monitoring of caddies and walkers like no others in the golf market. This device makes managing location, pace, and staff locations so much easier.  The reliability, weather proofing, long battery life, and accuracy are unparalleled in the golf industry.”, says Dave Vanslette, Founder and CEO of FAIRWAYiQ.  “The handheld device complements our full line of cart and equipment trackers that focus on reliability, durability and performance.  Our goal is to make everything easier for our customers so they can achieve the most value from our system without any extra work.”

“Many customers have a mix of GPS devices to monitor play, optimize the flow of the golf course and show location so they can raise the bar on the player experience.” explains Chuck Rogers, Head of Customer Success at FAIRWAYiQ.  “Rounds at many facilities have exploded over the past few years which has only increased the need to monitor all types of play.”

“FAIRWAYiQ’s location intelligence platform exemplifies what’s possible with the convergence of telematics, edge computing and the cloud. We are excited to see such innovative thinking and how our connected intelligence platform can be leveraged to deliver value to golf course operators, and even more excited that our telematics platform proved once again it can track anything that moves,” said Jeff Clark, senior vice president of product management, CalAmp.
