With Ivrnet's automated voice-recognition software, GolfNow will offer
the most advanced speech-based tee time booking system available in the world.
The new system will allow golfers to easily book tee times over the phone at
any of GolfNow's partner golf course 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.
The service will be initially launched in Phoenix, Arizona and will offer
tee times at over 80 courses. The number will grow to over 1,000 courses when
GolfNow releases the Ivrnet system in all the U.S. markets it serves later
this year. The system will enter service on Oct 2, 2007 and will make booking
a tee time with GolfNow faster and more convenient.
According to Peter Tran lead developer of the project for Ivrnet, "The
GolfNow project was a huge undertaking. The success of this project really
highlights Ivrnet's ability to provide high quality voice recognition
solutions for the golf industry."
Frank Halpin, founder and COO of GolfNow, said, "With the Ivrnet system
we hope to expand our web-based business that is currently processing over

customers that were unable or unwilling to book online."

GolfNow at 1-800-980-1226 and try the service. "I think they will be amazed by
how well the service works."
