    A practical guide to the modern day Golf POS

    A practical guide to the modern day Golf POS

    We know running a pro shop ain’t easy. When times get hectic you’ll be thanking yourself for having a solid system in place. Here at Chronogolf we believe that having a modern golf point of sale (POS) equals a smoother operation and happy customers, that’s why we put together this helpful guide to help you understand what needs a good golf POS will satisfy.

    Golf has a long and rich tradition that has been important to so many people for centuries. Unfortunately, this long tradition has not always translated into modernization in the pro shop. In fact, many golf courses still use pen a paper to track their daily tee times, and courses who do use computers to manage their operations often find themselves using a buggy, outdated, and expensive tee sheet and golf POS.

    frustrated with your golf pos?

    • Not all Golf POS systems are created equal

    There are wide range of options available and the differences between each service are substantial. Some POS systems run on an expensive server stored directly at the golf course, these systems often are only compatible with certain computers, printers, and accounting software. Other golf POS systems have an open application program interface (API) which allows other, best of breed, software to easily connect into the POS and help with marketing, accounting, and other aspects of golf management. 

    use your golf pos anywhere

    • Slowly but surely the golf industry is modernizing

    Since the advent of online marketplaces where tee times are bought and sold, and the popularization of tee time management software, technology usage in the golf industry is becoming increasingly important.

    How a good Golf POS can grow your business

    Before we get into all the neat features our POS system offers, lets talk about a few concrete examples we’ve observed from our customers in the past. Having a good POS means that aside just from enjoying a streamlined and efficient system, you can also use your POS to:

    • Engage in stronger email marketing

    Our POS is seamlessly integrated with our customer database, meaning that as you take customer’s emails our database updates automatically and collects this valuable information. Even better, you can make use of our Mailchimp integration which allows your golf course to collect emails and then automatically add them to your email marketing list.

    • Improve online promotion

    By using our Chronogolf marketplace you can promote your golf course online directly from the golf POS. With Chronogolf, promotion in this case can be done either by utilizing our Facbook plugin to share tee times with your Facebook audience, or by promoting discounted tee times on our online marketplace.

    • Efficiently manage inventory

    Does your POS track inventory in real time? Chronogolf not only tracks what products are sold, it also can tell you which product categories are selling well while improving exactness and efficiency of ordering through our simple purchase order system.
