The Club Prophet Systems YouTube Video Channel has some new additions highlighting features (some old, some new) for a quick primer (most just a couple minutes) for you and your staff to view online.
Here are recent additions:
Frustrated by the time it takes to run an EMV transaction? With Apple Pay, you bypass EMV and Credit Cards all together. In a recent study (see https://9to5mac.com/2016/11/21/apple-pay-branding-vending-machines-mobile-payments/), it was noted that just changing the signage on vending machines increased mobile pay usage by 135% and overall sales by 36%. The POS station can substantially increase the use of paying with an Apple iPhone instead of a credit card with one simple change. The change? A simple sign that reads “Pay with your favorite card using Apple Pay”. Of course, you need a terminal that supports Apple Pay but CPS has solutions for this.

When a customer/golfer goes to your website, what is (hopefully) the most important thing they want to do? Book a Tee Time! So why show them only a landing page with general information about your club and force them to hunt for a Book Now link that will eventually take them to a place to look for a tee time? With the Booking Widget, you can now add a tool on the very first page of your website where the golfer can select the date they want to play, then find and book that tee time. See the Booking Widget video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8ImSbkJ0E4
Value Added Packages.
Buy an airline ticket lately? If so, you are familiar with this concept. First, buy the seat. Want extra leg room for $x? Want an aisle or window seat for $x? How about a meal for $x? Need a rental car? Hotel, etc.? It’s all driven around up-selling the consumer for additional revenue. So, we took this concept and applied it to our online booking engine. Purchase a tee time. Would you like to add a hot dog and beer or soft drink at the turn and range balls for $15? Add today’s dinner special after golf with an adult beverage and unlimited soft drinks for $30? Any offer you can think of can be used to drive incremental revenue. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhH4u_UUjBI
Starter Hut Mobile.
This is a wireless web browser‑based tee sheet designed for the Starter out on the first tee. Typically this app is run on an iPad or tablet (usually in some type of water resistant case). This allows the starter to quickly see who is paid, assign cart numbers, get cart agreement signatures, collect missing player data (removing that task from the counter staff), keep pace of play, move and rearrange groups if needed, and more. It’s a great tool for the starter and the shop to share real-time information. See it in action in this video: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHjv5c14Te8
Group Bookings is a new feature of the Online Reservations product that allows the consumer to book multiple tee times for a small party. For example, I may want to book a group of 14 players. This video will demo the process the consumer goes through to book a group and how to set it up on your site. Click here to view the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFwAzNIFrUU
