The Professional Golfers’ Association Of America Drives High Stakes Data Capture With Intermec Rugged Mobile Computers

Intermec, Inc. (NYSE:IN) today announced that The PGA of America, an organization of 27,000 men and women golf professional members, has selected the Intermec CN50 and CK71 rugged handheld mobile computers for data collection at its signature tournaments. Previously renting equipment for each tournament, the PGA estimates it will save upwards of $3 million by 2016 by using in its own new technology solution, and also expects reduced pre-tournament configuration and volunteer training time as a result.

Teaming with Florida-based barcode and RFID technology specialists Scan Read Technologies, the PGA worked with Intermec and Scan Read to deploy the new system in time for the 2012 PGA Championship. The PGA has a network of nearly 4,000 volunteers, including walking scorers, who use the CN50s to enter shot data in real-time, as it happens on the course. The data is then transmitted directly to the PGA’s group of on-site quality control experts. The CK71s are used for scanning tickets at entry gates.

“For the PGA, one of the most well-known brands in golf, it’s absolutely crucial that all of our data is as accurate as possible because it is being fed in real-time to the media, including television, radio and Internet,” said Lou Manz, PGA Director of Information Technology. “With the rugged design, extended battery life and high-performing scanning capabilities, the Intermec solution offered us the most intuitive choice for our team of volunteers to use seamlessly with very little training.”

“Intermec’s unique portfolio of mobile solutions continue to be a best-in-class option to support customer needs for exceptional performance with no room for downtime,” said Earl Thompson, Intermec Senior Vice President of Mobile Solutions Business. “The PGA’s choice of the CN50 and CK71 will help to further advance their goal of offering the best spectator experience possible.”
