Two market leaders have formed the biggest partnership in the history of golf club software. Club Systems the market leaders in Epos, Membership, Handicapping and Competitions with over 2000 customers have signed a long term agreement with BRS Golf the market leaders in Tee Time Management and Online Booking with 460 customers.
This will provide the respective customer bases with the option of a fully integrated system, more software options and the knowledge that they are investing in even stronger growing businesses.
What is most significant about this agreement is the long term intention of the two companies: Club Systems is acquiring an equity share in BRS Golf, and BRS Golf is obtaining Club Systems’ own online tee time booking system, SpeediTee, which it will develop in order to provide an entry level online booking system suitable for smaller golf clubs. This will be in addition to the BRS Tee Time Manager product that is already being used by 460 golf clubs.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both companies and the golf industry,” said Dr Brian Smith, director of BRS Golf. “About 60% of BRS customers are also customers of Club Systems, we can now provide them with an integrated solution including Handicapping, Membership, EPoS and Tee Time Booking. We will also be providing two solutions at differing prices depending on clubs requirements.”
“We are both market leaders, started by golf enthusiasts who brought their business expertise into the companies to make them grow into strong, successful businesses,” says Richard Peabody, Managing Director of Club Systems, “and we’re partnering together for the benefit of our customers. Those benefits will be rolled out to golf clubs in the coming months. For the club manager they amount to a reduction in time spent on administration, for the golfer there’s an increase in convenience.”
