The Golf Genius-GPSI Connector combines hole-by-hole scores and live leaderboards hosted on GGS and Visage platforms with GPSI's 10-inch color touch screens mounted to golf cars. Real-time results can also be transmitted to clubhouse televisions, golf course websites and GGS-supplied portals.
"We are very excited to partner with GPS Industries and Club Car to extend the capabilities of the Golf Genius platform," says Michael Zisman, CEO of GGS. "For courses equipped with GPSI units on their fleet, tournament scoring is a natural extension of the services provided on the video display unit. Live leaderboards cultivate a tour-like experience, unquestionably enhancing the tournament experience and providing greater enjoyment for golfers."
Affordable, fully-featured software from GGS is ideal for golf tournaments and leagues at public and private facilities, charitable and corporate outings, member-guest competitions, buddy trips, professional championships and more. Scoring simultaneous events is a snap, as is posting full-motion video and static messages, greetings and even video sponsorships.
"GGS's user-friendly interface creates less work for those managing events while delivering more fun to participants," says Ben Porter, CEO of GPSI. "The Golf Genius-GPSI Connector requires no additional hardware, making the transition seamless and an even easier decision for courses intent on offering guests a memorable playing experience."
The recently-launched Visage Media Network is an increasingly popular GPSI platform. It represents the largest connected, on-course audience of golfers in the world. Sponsored content is featured on more than 25,000 screens with nearly 40 million-plus page views monthly. New applications are being developed to enable users to stay connected with their social media and professional networks while creating, managing and sharing user-generated content, including personal golf statistics, photos and video.
Prevalent at public, private and resort golf courses, marquee properties utilizing the Visage platform include Congressional Country Club, Trump National Doral Miami and several TPC clubs such as San Antonio, Las Vegas and River Highlands. Installed in 900-plus golf-car fleets, primarily in North America, Europe and the Middle East for 80% global market share, GPSI predicts 35% annual growth over 2014.
