In-telligent Personal Safety App Alerts Golfers of Lightning and Other Weather-related Emergencies with Directions for How to Get to Safety
Chicago, IL – April 1, 2019 – In-telligent, provider of a personal safety and emergency communications platform designed to keep individuals safe during emergency situations and time-sensitive events, announced today the launch of its Outdoor Division, which is focused on bringing the In-telligent platform and mobile app to golf courses around the U.S. With the In-telligent emergency notifications platform, golf facilities can significantly boost their communication efforts by sending alerts of lightning, severe weather or other dangerous conditions through the In-telligent app to golfers while directing them to safety. The platform can also send normal notifications to specific areas and special interest groups, allowing for targeted communications in non-emergency situations as well.
Lightning is one of the leading causes of weather-related deaths in the U.S. Golfers, in particular, can be vulnerable to this danger, given their reluctance to leave the course before they’ve finished the round. Most golf courses have alert systems but they have proven to be largely ineffective since sirens can’t always be heard in far-reaching corners of the course. Additionally, such systems can be expensive to maintain and are prone to malfunctioning. With the In-telligent app on their phone, golfers can receive alerts immediately when lightning or other threats are imminent, and directions on what to do to protect themselves.
Golf course emergency alerts utilize
the systems silent override feature, which ensures an alert is noticed even when a user’s phone is set to silent or Do Not Disturb mode, important messages and updates are noticed by staff and patrons immediately. Additionally, In-telligent can be used to boost communication efforts with event reminders, promotions, and more.
“I’ve been a golf pro for 21 years, and I know the danger golfers face when they are on the course and extreme weather is on the way,” said Gabe Exiner, Outdoor Facilities Director for In-telligent. “The In-telligent platform is an inexpensive and easy-to-adopt solution for golf facilities to alert golfers of severe weather or other dangerous conditions and direct them to safety. The ability to warn people in a specific area – even if their phones are silenced – is a feature not found in any other emergency notification solution. In-telligent is also perfect for all regular club communications as well, with streamlined delivery of relevant content to the recipients. The safety features and other messaging capabilities help improve a club’s communications while keeping their staff and visitors safe – all of which is good for their bottom line.”
Among the golf facilities that have begun using In-telligent are The Grove and Royal Fox Country Clubs in Illinois. As stated by Brian Tulk, General Manager for both resorts, “We have been in need of a tool like In-telligent as a quick and easy way to alert players on the course, as well as grounds crew and other staff, when severe weather or other events affecting our buildings and property, and potentially impacting people’s safety, take place. Our previous system required significant expense to maintain, and we can now use those funds for continually enhancing the wonderful atmosphere we have created at The Royal Fox Country Club and The Grove Country Club. In-telligent also helps keep members more informed and closely connected to the club, which is mutually beneficial.”
By operating as either a stand alone golf course emergency alerts solution,
or an add-on to a facility’s existing system, In-telligent delivers the warning AND directions for ANY dangerous situation, maximizing a facility’s duty of care for anyone on their property.
