Just like any software purchase, you need to do your due diligence and shop around. Here are a few checkpoints you should be looking out for:
Ease of use
For email marketing software, simplicity is key. You should be able to create your first campaign in a matter of minutes. Sign up for free trials, test a few vendors out and see which one is easiest to use. If you have staff that needs training on this, you want them to be able to pick it up as fast as possible.
You want to stay in touch with your golfers on a timely basis. Sending automated emails based on specific dates can be a huge time saver. For example, when membership end dates are approaching, you can set up an automated campaign that sends reminders to your members to renew.
'We met David and JD at the Alberta PGA buying show two years ago, while we were in the market for new software in upgrading our POS and Tee sheet. They supplied us with a short demo on the spot, and I was quite impressed in how user friendly the system was. We also explained how our needs might be different than other golf courses and they were able to customize the software to fit our needs. The software has been very stable, and the customer service has been great. These guys are from the golf industry and they know what golf courses have been missing for years in software. Chronogolf is a very forward thinking company and we look forward to our continued relationship with them.

Over the past 12 years in the golf industry I have tried many different tee sheets and POS systems. I was hesitant to make a change during my season but I am so happy that I did. John and his team from Chronogolf made the transition seamless. The customer service is outstanding and the product itself is fantastic.
I would recommend Chronogolf to any golf course that is looking to streamline their processes into one easy to use system. I love being able to access my tee sheet anytime from anywhere. This is one of the best decisions that I have made for my business as it has been a tremendous time saver!
