Now a firm fixture in the golf industry calendar, the annual Club Systems International (CSI) roadshow will this year run throughout October and into November, as club officials have the opportunity to discover more about the company’s market-leading products.
The roadshow will visit 17 golf clubs across the UK and Ireland between October 3 and November 9, with staff on hand to demonstrate and talk about all the company’s latest developments with particular focus this year on smartphone apps.
The HowDidiDo app – which was, at one stage in late 2016, the number-one free sports app in the Apple Store – has seen more than 100,000 downloads, while a new and game-changing ClubV1 members’ app, running in tandem with ClubV1, will be launched at the roadshows.
There are also demonstrations of further exciting developments for the cloud-based ClubV1 – including new features to the competitions and handicap module – and further enhancements to the market-leading MerlinTouch EPoS till system.
Also at the events will be BRS Golf, the leading online system supplier of tee-times in the UK and Ireland – as close integration between the two companies continues to provide customers with the ultimate ‘best in breed’ solution – and Premium Credit, the supplier of Fairway Credit, the market-leading brand for collecting membership subscriptions.
England Golf, Scottish Golf and the Golf Union of Wales will also be present at relevant events to offer support and advice to attendees.
CSI‘s customer relationship manager, Darren Wood, who will be leading the team on the roadshows, explained: “As always, the format for the show itself is relaxed and informal while remaining interactive and educational. The roadshows provide a great opportunity for club officials to interact and network with key providers who can offer a complete solution and support for their business.
“We anticipate there will be much interest in the smartphone apps but we certainly won’t be ignoring the other products in our portfolio, and attendees will, once again, be able to see for themselves how all key CSI products can enhance their business and make life simpler.”
The series of roadshows was designed to update club managers, secretaries and owners on new products and updates to the CSI range and, each year, hundreds have attended to learn about the simplicity and far-reaching benefits of CSI’s wide range of industry leading products.
The 2017 CSI roadshow series will begin in Aberdeen at Deeside GC, on October 3, and culminates at Llanwern GC, in Newport, Gwent, on November 9.
Club Systems International Ltd has been designing, building and supporting IT systems for golf clubs since 1982. Now, with nearly 2,000 golf clubs in the UK and Ireland – along with customers as far afield as Dubai, Ghana and Sri Lanka – CSI has grown to lead the UK and Ireland golf club market.
