iPads to Drive Revenue for Golf Instructors with the OntoGolf Lesson Management System
The OntoGolf Station, iPad App Represent Innovation and a Technology Leap for Business at Pro Shops
- (1888PressRelease) January 26, 2012 - Atlanta, GA - OntoGolf (www.OntoGolf.com) today announced that its newly launched golf lesson management platform on iPad - the OntoGolf System, will significantly drive revenue for instructors at the pro shop.
The system includes the OntoGolf Station, with an iPad pre-installed with the OntoGolf app. The station is accessible to golfers at the pro shop for registration, scheduling, check-in and payments. Instructors can administer and monitor their business process from a smart phone or any other web-enabled device. The patent pending process increases the impulse scheduling opportunity at golf facilities, and saves human resources.
A New Platform for Business at the Pro Shop
OntoGolf expects that the location of the OntoGolf Station at the pro shop, a frequently visited area at golf facilities, will empower individual instructors immensely. The OntoGolf Station will attract impulse and secondary purchases. It also lets the golfer sign up via emails sent by the OntoGolf System to students, encouraging them to take lessons.
The system is an innovative way for golfers to manage their own scheduling experience, while increasing lesson revenue for golf facilities and instructors.
2012 PGA Merchandise Show
OntoGolf had recently announced its participation with Range Servant at the 2012 PGA Merchandise Show (Booth #3542). The OntoGolf System will also be featured in the technology section of the event's New Product Zone. This year's event will be held January 26-28, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
"The OntoGolf System on iPad is a generational leap in technology for business in the pro shop," said Hormuz Minina, founder of OntoGolf. "It empowers independent professional instructors by representing them there. The OntoGolf Station offers ease of use and access, and drives impulse purchases right where the golfer is most likely to do so - the golf facility."
