Shinobicontrols helps power new app from Arccos Golf

Golfers wanting to improve their game can benefit from a new app, which is powered by technology from Newcastle-based Shinobicontrols.

Shinobicontrols supplied charts and visualisation tools to Arccos Golf for its latest product, Arccos Driver, a performance tracking system that uses a smartphone app to help golfers measure precise distances, track shots and analyse their overall performance.

Shinobicontrols’ chief operating officer, Stuart Grey said: “Arccos, through both Arccos Driver and its master product Arccos Golf, is delivering real-time insights to help golfers get to, and stay at the top of their game, without asking them to change their behaviour or giving them any extra work to do.

“The technology, through the use of bluetooth sensors and GPS, fits seamlessly into their game. Distance to the pin, greens in regulation and average distance achieved are measured along with many more and then presented in real-time, using shinobicontrols.”  

Ben Heller, director of software development at Arccos added: “We’ve had a great experience with Shinobicontrols and consider its products to be leading the way in mobile data visualisation.

“Our customers wanted to view their stats in real-time on the golf course, and engaging with Shinobicontrols has allowed us to exceed customer expectations in a matter of months.”
