New coaching management software launched in the UK

GLF.Locker is a comprehensive suite of web and mobile tools for golf coaches and their students, developed in the both the UK and United States and now launched in the UK. GLF. (Giant Leaps Forward) says it has created the web-based GLF.Locker software platform to boost the business prospects of anyone who teaches golfers for a living.

The online platform provides management tools said to enable golf teaching professionals to operate more efficiently, leading to significantly increased customer retention levels. GLF.Locker helps golf professionals to generate more revenue from individual pupils and group bookings, and allows golf academy managers to increase income from either a single academy, or a group of golf academies where multiple sites are being managed.

By making new and existing student bookings easier to manage, marketing promotions more efficient and powerful, and key customer trends more easy to identify, GLF.Locker helps revenue-boosting activities as well as day-to-day management tasks.

Coaches can track a wide variety of data, from financial records to student performance at group or individual level, and customise the look and feel to suit their own brand image. GLF.Locker simplifies the scheduling of individual and group lessons, and coaches can also create limitless new products, add discounts and take payments within the GLF.Locker platform. Golf academy managers can create live, up-to-date reports on all academy activity, and can send instant messages to staff, individual students, group members, or to all registered users.

A free GLF.Locker App has also been launched in the App store, with an Android version set for later in the year. Golf coaches will find the GLF.Locker App especially useful for tracking students’ progress and managing their bookings while mobile. Golfers can use it to book their next golf lesson in less than a minute, speeding up and simplifying the process. Among other useful attributes the app also enables golfers to track all key aspects of their personal performance, including live comments and video tips from their golf coach.

In the States, coaching programmes facilitated by GLF.Locker software are underway at many ClubCorp and Kemper Sports venues, with academies operated by Sequoia Golf among the more recent GLF.Locker adopters.

Rob Spurrier, director of GLF. and creator of the GLF.Locker platform said, “I believe that it will change the business of golf coaching. From now on, if you intend to give anyone a golf lesson I recommend that you try the GLF.Locker demo on our website – we think you will be impressed. If you start to use it you will find that you spend less time managing your coaching business, giving you more time to actually give golf lessons, or to concentrate on business-building.”

GLF.Locker offers free registration for pupils, with Coach, Academy and Multi-Academy access starting at just £30 per month. See the GLF.Locker demo on www.glflocker.com
