GPS Industries (GPSI), a provider of GPS tracking technology, and Club Car are working together to bring fleet management into the cloud.
“Together we developed the Visage Mobile Golf Information System to help course operators monitor and control the location and status of golf cars and low-speed vehicles. It also lets them deliver course information, promotional messages and a superior golf experience,” says Michael T. Williams, business development and sales leader of vehicle connectivity at Club Car.
The Club Car’s new Precedent i3 golf car is the first golf car with built-in connectivity, it comes with a high-resolution, sealed on-board monitor.
Course operators use Visage to stay in touch with golfers, manage and protect their fleets, speed pace of play and market pro shop and restaurant items.
The system delivers vehicle status and service and fault notifications to the course’s Visage control center. And it enhances the golf experience by providing electronic scorecards, yardage books and three-dimensional views of each hole.
The Congressional Country Club, Trump National Doral Miami, several TPC clubs and other prestigious courses use the Precedent i3 and Visage.
“The Visage systems and Club Car’s connected vehicles are an affordable way for courses and resorts to boost their revenues, manage their fleets and improve the guest experience. And there’s more to come,” says Williams.
