HAP Uses CARROT for LPGA Walking Challenge

As a sponsor for this year’s LPGA Volvik Championship in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Health Alliance Plan (HAP) wanted to encourage spectators to spend just a little more time walking during their visit to Country Club – after all, living healthier lives is exactly what HAP is all about. 
 

So they staged a HAP Walking Challenge each day of the tournament, and they used CARROT as the primary tool to reward participants. To participate, contestants had to download the free CARROT PASS app and then connect with CARROT iBeacons positioned around the course. They earned points for walking within 200 feet of those beacons, then returned to HAP’s tent and redeemed those points for great prizes. 
 

Kudos to the staff at HAP for their innovative use of CARROT technology… and for motivating people to be more active!

FORE!!! Look for CARROT on the Links!

CARROT iBeacons can be found in any number of places at the Cattails Golf Club in South Lyon, Michigan.

Late this past summer, Cattails Golf Club in South Lyon became the first golf course to utilize CARROT as a tool to reward customer loyalty and generate increased business.

“Most new golf course apps use GPS which really drains battery life,” said CARROT Founder & CEO Michael Antaran. “CARROT’s use of low-energy Bluetooth combined with its other technologies gives golfers a better and more-reliable experience – and you won’t have to worry about recharging your phone at the turn!”

CARROT Beacons are placed strategically throughout the grounds, allowing Cattails to provide golfers with a digital course book, discounts at the pro shop and grille, loyalty rewards, and the ability to streamline food and beverage purchases on the course. Additionally, new features will be added before play begins in 2016 to give Cattails customers the best experience possible – all because they downloaded the free CARROT app!
