From a Key Partnership Dating Back to 2014 to Joining the Lightspeed Family
It’s no secret that an early part of our success can be attributed to partnering with Lightspeed. In addition to the convenience and shared pride of both being headquartered in Montreal (go Habs go!), it was clear that Lightspeed shared our customer-first and people-first mindset, along with our commitment to providing the absolute best product and service possible.
Today we are renewing that commitment by joining forces once and for all. We believe that entering Lightspeed’s universe gives us a clear path forward to continue building the best management software in golf. Our shared mission and complementary cultures will combine and reinforce one another through this new chapter.
In short, joining Lightspeed means we can now focus on further integrating the best retail, restaurant, accounting, loyalty, and payment processing tools into our existing tee sheet, member management, and marketing solution. We can’t wait to see what we will achieve together.
