3 Critical Things To Ask Before You Choose a Point of Sale

Golf POS, foreUP Technology

Trust & Transparency

Time to choose a point of sale for your business? Selecting your POS and reservation system is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will make as a growing business; the software you choose will become an integral part of your daily operations.

However, the stability and maintenance of that software is completely out of your hands. Any problems, bugs, or outages in the software will have a huge impact on your business. It’s important to choose a point of sale with solid software provided by a company who treats you as a partner–not a client.

It’s hard to identify the types of attributes that you should be looking for in a software provider, but you can gauge how they will treat you and your business by how they handle any major issues or software outages.

 

3 Questions To Ask Before You Choose a Point of Sale


Question One: Where is your status page?

Any reasonable point of sale or other software company will provide a status page of their entire system. The status page should give you an overview of:

  • What’s working
  • What’s not working
  • History of past incidents

Why Do You Want A Status Page?

Having a status page shows a level of competence, trust, and transparency. This should be the central location where you can get immediate updates on problems within the system. Many people don't think to ask for this before they choose a point of sale, not realizing its importance until it's too late.

foreUP Tips & Features, Golf Marketing, Golf POS, Marketing Software, foreUP Technology

Marketing your golf course is an integral part of your business. When done correctly, it allows you to promote low used tee times and build strong communication channels with your existing customers. A powerful marketing campaign can also bring an influx of new clients which maximizes your revenue.

 

Recent studies show that text messaging is one of the most popular and powerful marketing channels. On average, 94% of all text messages are read, and 80% of consumers have their mobile phone with them all day. In fact, 39% of US consumers would opt for text messages rather than radio or TV advertising, if they were given a choice.

 

With foreUP's built-in golf marketing tools you can use text messaging to send out promotions and drive huge revenues to your course. You can also use text messages to send out reminders of events, leagues, and tournaments to ensure repeat business and decrease the amount of “no shows.”

 

Your messages will be read almost instantly thanks to high open and read rates, and you can easily create and send messages within minutes.
