When it comes to choosing an online tee time software, it’s important to do your research and make sure the software is the right fit for your golf course.
It’s not enough to settle for the first software you run into that has the most features; the software should also be user-friendly, easy to use, easy to learn, and above all, intuitive.
As you are doing your research, here are a few points to keep in mind before making the final choice.
Who is Behind the Software?
Some of the best software was designed by individuals who have an intimate knowledge of the industry. Not many people are familiar with all the details involved in running your own golf course, so the best person to design an online tee time software should be someone who has extensive experience in the industry. The perfect online tee time software should then be developed by an experienced developer who is able to understand your vision and bring it to life.
Was the Software Designed for Your Type of Golf Course?
There is a huge difference in the way a private and a public golf club are run. Public golf clubs often lack advanced membership levels and various membership perks associated with them. A software designed with public golf clubs in mind most likely won’t satisfy your needs so be sure to check if your chosen software will support your golf club.
Is the System Easy to Use and Learn?
An online tee time system should be easy to learn for those who are less technologically savvy as well as easy to use for more experienced users. It should provide all the necessary information and allow for easy changes should the user want to change anything during their booking process.
Can You Customize the Software to Fit Your Business Needs?
Each golf club operates differently and in the world of software there is no unique solution that would fit each and every golf club without needing to change anything. The software of your choice should allow for enough tweaks and modifications that will allow you to integrate it with your existing business seamlessly and accommodate specific requirements without surprise charges.
Can You Rely on Customer Support?
In an ideal world, once you setup your online tee time system, it would be up and running without ever causing problems. Unfortunately, even the best software can sometimes misbehave and that’s where customer support plays a crucial role.
A reliable customer support is essential which means you need to know exactly what all customer support entails and all the different ways it’s available. Most importantly, customer support should be familiar with the way a golf club functions in order to provide quality service.
Finally, before making a purchase, make sure you look for any reviews of your chosen software and talk with your industry peers to get their input as well.
