Ten years ago all of the vendors had the best interest of their clients at heart, TAI still does.
For many clubs, the days of entrance fees and assessing members for losses is history. Today’s clubs need the tools and the expertise to run a club to the satisfaction of the membership and still make a profit. In order to accomplish this, technology is integral but technology alone solves nothing.
A basic fundamental of technology is that technology doesn’t run a club, people do. Technology makes good better while causing bad things to get worse. Management sets the policy and staff carries it out, and your technology does as it is told.
Vendors who sell you on the concept that their system will make all your problems disappear, are doing you a disservice. Vendors who are too big, rigid, inflexible and provide poor support need to sell the illusion that the software alone makes the difference. Regretfully when the decision makers are not versed in club operations or technology (board members, club members or consultants) the salesperson has the upper hand and the club is stuck with the results.
TAI values integrity above all else. We will work to determine your needs and determine with you if TAI should be your technology partner. TAI does not limit your choices by restricting your options; TAI integrates to the real world allowing you the flexibility to choose what is best. Critical to your success, TAI’s support is the clear leader in the industry and our business knowledge will become an asset to your success.
All clubs are unique and the one size fits all approach is archaic and restricts your ability to be successful. TAI values the results more than the sale, and we value your success. Integrity, honesty, expertise, product and service; TAI Club Management is your partner in club technology.
