Online Platform Allows Players to Swap Out Their Old Devices – Including Rangefinders, Swing Analyzers, GPS Units, Performance Trackers and More
(STAMFORD, Conn.) – Arccos announced the launch of its Trade Up Program, which allows U.S. residents to exchange their unused or out-of-date golf technology for credits toward the purchase of Arccos 360, Golf’s #1 Performance Tracking System.
“Almost every golfer has obsolete gadgets sitting around their house or out in their garage,” says Tom Williams, SVP of Sales and Marketing at Arccos. “If they’ve got a few of these, they can easily earn enough credits to cover the entire purchase price of our award-winning system.”
Recently named “Best Game Analyzer” in the 2017 Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Awards, the Arccos 360 connected golf system automatically records every shot a golfer takes. It then analyzes the data in real time, helping golfers of all skill levels shoot lower scores by making smarter, data-driven decisions on the course.
By leveraging these insights, golfers using the Arccos 360 system improved their handicap by an average of 2.77 strokes in 2016, a 36.4x greater rate of improvement than the average golfer with a USGA handicap.
In January 2017, Arccos announced a technology partnership with Microsoft, through which the companies are developing artificial intelligence technologies that use advanced analytics to help golfers play their best. The first product from this collaboration, Arccos Caddie, launched in May. It leverages the power of the Microsoft Azure cloud and the Arccos dataset, which includes more than 75 million shots, 368 million geo-tagged course mapping features on 40,000+ courses and highly accurate, real-time weather data. It shows a player their optimal path — and alternatives — on any hole in the world, and the likely outcome when pursuing each strategy. More information: www.arccoscaddie.com and www.arccosgolf.com.
