DSG Tag Systems has developed the TAG-150, a revolutionary fleet management and tracking system, designed specifically to help golf course operators be more efficient in managing their vehicles and equipment, as well as labor resources.

The TAG-150 is compatible with any E-Z-GO or Cushman vehicle, gas or electric.
DSG offers two accessories for the TAG-150 product designed to add new functionality aimed at the vehicle operator and facilitate communication between the golf course operator and customers.
· The first accessory, the TAG TEXT, is an alphanumeric text display featuring a rugged weather-proof case with mounting options for any E-Z-GO golf car, which adds messaging and distance measurement capabilities to the versatile TAG-150 vehicle unit. Players now have access to distance measurement capabilities while golf course management has a very affordable and convenient way to communicate with the players in the field.
· The second accessory is the TAG TOUCH, a high-definition color, capacitive touch input display, which provides the golfer with a graphic representation of the hole played and offers features such as pro-tips, green-view, score keeping, distance measurement and many others. This new unit is aimed at high-end facilities interested in creating an exceptional user experience for their customers.
