Courses in Nine States and Two Provinces to Automate Course Operations Using Company's Software
SAN DIEGO, CA - January 26, 2006 - Active Golf Solutions (www.ActiveGolfSolutions.com), part of The Active Network, Inc. and a leading provider of course management software, online tee time reservations and marketing services to golf courses, has recently signed 40 municipal and privately-owned golf courses in nine U.S. states and two Canadian provinces to use its advanced golf course management software for automating and streamlining golf course operations.
"We're excited to add such an impressive list of organizations to our family of software customers," said Alex Barnetson, senior vice president, The Active Network, Inc. "Our course management software gives golf course owners and operators a competitive edge, streamlining their operations so they can offer the best experience possible to golfers. By providing easy-to-use technology and targeted marketing services, we're helping courses drive rounds, increase revenue, and improve customer service."
The Active Network acquired golf course management software provider Tee Time King - providers of GolfeNetwork and Fairway Systems software products - in September 2005, launching its Active Golf Solutions business to provide golf course owners, municipal administrators and property managers an enhanced line of technology and marketing services for their golf operations. The company's advanced desktop software offers an automated solution for managing tee sheets, online and touch tone reservations, point-of-sale, inventory, loyalty programs, member billing, accounts receivable, event and catering contract management, and other daily administration. Courses can also promote their facilities and market their tee times online through the company's national consumer portal, ActiveGolf.com (www.ActiveGolf.com), which provides the largest and most comprehensive online resource for local golf information. The company also provides a range of marketing services to increase awareness and participation in golf events.
