Launch of New SENTINEL™ Series Products Planned for PGA Show
Irvine, California – ProShot Golf, a world leader in information technology for the golf industry, has announced a development partnership with On-Pin, an Australia-based company. The companies will collaborate to design, develop, manufacture, and market a new series—the SENTINEL™ series—of complete golf course management and yardage information systems.
The launch of these new technology products is slated for the 2016 PGA Show later this month and the initial offering will include three distinct SENTINEL™ products: the SENTINEL 10, the SENTINEL 7, and the SENTINEL RF.
According to ProShot Golf President David Kuhn, “We are delighted to be in partnership with On-Pin, with whom we have had a 15-year relationship.” He added, “With their years of golf industry experience and their technical savvy, they are the perfect partner in introducing SENTINEL™ to the international marketplace.” On-Pin has a presence in Australia and the United Kingdom, from which they can cover all of Asia and Europe.
Ian Glasson, President of On-Pin, stated, “We chose to partner with ProShot Golf because they pioneered the golf course communication and management industry. Over the past quarter of a century, ProShot’s well-deserved reputation for superior customer service and support has made them a natural choice as a partner.”
The SENTINEL 10 is a cellular-based, web-enabled, and cloud-connected system that
will provide golfers with a rugged, full-color, full-featured and daylight-readable 10-inch touchscreen cart-mounted display rivaling anything in the industry. Standard features will include an internal rechargeable battery, ShotPlanner™ application for play management, video and static advertising capability, green views with slope indicators, complete warning and messaging capability, Geo-Fencing with camera-recorded violations, and look ahead feature for blind shots.
The SENTINEL 7 will have all the same features as the Sentinel 10, but the full-color touchscreen is 7 inches, versus 10, and will be offered at a reduced cost.
The SENTINEL RF is the most affordable complete GPS system in the industry. It provides all yardage information and playing tips to the golfer in a bold, alpha-numeric format. In addition to its cost effectiveness, the SENTINEL RF is perfectly suited for golf courses where cell coverage is less than optimal.
All SENTINEL™ Products are linked to ProShot Golf’s proprietary Remote Asset Management System or RAMS. RAMS includes features such as full course real time management, pace of play monitoring, cart usage and rotation reporting, messaging to one, some or all carts, positional promotional messages, three years cloud storage of all information, and remote password-protected Internet access from any device.
According to Kuhn, all SENTINEL™ products are covered by a no-cost lifetime warranty and supported by ProShot Golf’s commitment to service and support programs with 24-hour technical support.
