R2 Innovative Technologies (R2IT) is a leading provider of Information Technology and high-tech entertainment to the world of professional golf and beyond. R2IT believes that technology, when presented properly and in an entertaining fashion, can enhance any environment. Our goals are to provide new and innovative ways for our customers to entertain their clients.
Over 25 years of experience at over 1000 events qualifies R2 Innovative Technologies as an expert provider of computer services to professional golf, sporting and other corporate events.
Originally the Computer Services division of Executive Sports and Golden Bear International, this division was one of the first companies to deliver computerized scoring services to the professional golf community and successful interfaces to televised productions.
In 1999, Executive Sports Computer Services strategically separated from its parent company to form R2 Innovative Technologies. Without missing a beat, the new company was able to maintain its uncompromising service and commitment to all of its customers and increase sales by over 400% in the past 5 years.
R2IT designed, developed, and starting in 2011, operates the LPGA scoring system used at all LPGA Tour events throughout the US and also internationally. R2 provides extensive networking expertise, including entire course wi-fi for real-time scoring of all events in the United States. R2 also hosts and manages the real-time scoring aspects of the LPGA.com website at all LPGA Tour events including international events. Additionally, through it's partnership with Innovision Media Group, R2IT also supplies the on-course electronic boards used for scoring and sponsorship advertising.
R2IT also developed the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings and currently manages them on a weekly basis.
While servicing golf events, R2IT recognized the need for the modernization of data collection activities, including tournament management software and pro-am pairing services.
Back in the 1995, a computerized pro-am draw was furnished to four golf events. Currently over 95 draws per year are being furnished by R2IT to the PGA, Champions, and LPGA Tours.
Although the core business has been “technical entertainment” in the area of computerized pro-am draws, R2IT has developed software that has helped tournament staff accomplish tasks faster and easier than ever before.
Our products include:
- Scoring Systems
- Event Management Software
- Web and e-Commerce Applications
- Interactive Entertainment Solutions
We currently service or support over 85 professional golf tournaments each year on the 3 major professional golf tours in the United States (PGA, Champions, and LPGA).
R2IT's sister company (R2 Unified Technologies) has also been providing Voice Over IP (VoIP) and data solutions to events, including year-round staff offices as well as on-site at event venues.
R2IT has also worked in other sporting industries such as lacrosse, fishing and Grand-Prix racing. R2 has developed online registration systems for many large lacrosse events throughout the US. R2 also developed a complex scoring system for the Professional Anglers Association which included web-based access to leader boards and other scoring data.
