Golf Genius Software Acquires Tournament Expert
Wayne, PA, – Golf Genius Software announced today that it has acquired the assets of Tournament Expert, LLC. Founded by Ted Kalmon in 2001, Tournament Expert is one of the leading suppliers of desktop tournament management software to the golf industry.
“Tournament Expert has some excellent features that we will integrate into the Golf Genius platform”, commented Mike Zisman, founder and CEO of Golf Genius Software. “Tournament Expert customers will be able to migrate over time to our cloud-based solutions: USGA Tournament Management Club, USGA Tournament Management Club Premium or the Golf Genius branded tournament management platform in non-GHIN states and outside the U.S.”, Zisman added. “In the interim, the Tournament Expert team, led by Ted Kalmon, will continue to support current Tournament Expert users.”
“Over the past 19 years, the Tournament Expert team has built a great desktop tournament management system and supported 200 customers in the U.S. and beyond,” said Ted Kalmon, founder and CEO of Tournament Expert. “We believe the evolution of tournament management systems to a cloud-based platform will be strongly beneficial to our users, and we’re pleased to partner with Golf Genius Software to offer them a migration path to the industry’s leading cloud-based TMS. Features such as “access from anywhere”, live mobile scoring, online registration and payments, and deep integration with other club systems are just some of the cloud-enabled capabilities that will be highly valued by our customers.”
For the remainder of 2020, Tournament Expert customers will be able to renew their annual subscriptions and will be supported by the Tournament Expert team. Tournament Expert customers will have the option to migrate to Golf Genius products and the Tournament Expert team will assist in this straightforward migration.
