Tagmarshal 2Way’s Geofence System brings added value to Golf Management Software

Golf management software has been at the forefront of advancements in golf course operations for added player value and self-management, and Tagmarshal’s 2Way system aims to be the solution that assists golf courses to stay ahead of the game.

Among its many great features, the next generation 2Way system features an accurate, automated geofence system which displays real-time notifications and alerts that dynamically and pre-emptively address any breaches in and around a course, with an added golfer front-end interface.

Unlike Tagmarshal’s classic geofence module which was initially developed for course management and staff, the new front-end user interface generation gives golfers the knowledge and awareness of any breaches.

This golf management software feature allows for management and staff access to real-time insight to pre-emptively address on-course issues and provide non-confrontational support, as well as golfer accountability.

What’s new?

Providing smart management tools to communicate effectively, to ensure player safety, player compliance and reduced damaged areas or areas under maintenance, and cart security from theft, remain the primary goals.

Previously, a course manager, for example, who used the system for oversight, but was not necessarily at their desk all the time, may have selected text messaging or even an automated alert call for key geofence zone breaches, or if a cart ignores multiple zones. With the updated system, messages are now automatically sent from the system notifying golfers if they are breaching a geofence zone. Golfers can then respond to whether they have seen it and acknowledge it and whether or not they need assistance, sending a text message or a modal pop up to every operational staff user.

Here are some of the feature benefits:

  • Allows for provisional geofencing to help protect damaged areas, caused by rain or drought, high traffic areas or areas under maintenance.
  • Geofences automatically activate at certain times of day or on certain days of the week.
  • Create zones based on a course’s criteria and monitor carts entering and exiting geofenced area
  • Prioritise geofenced zones with low, medium or high notification alerts
  • Increased safety and security over cart fleets and minimize theft and abuse
  • Tags are able to receive real-time automated updates allowing course managers to amend geofenced areas, as required
