taskTracker was developed to answer the tough questions on where your budget dollars are spent. The question of why it costs so much to maintain your course, when the course down the street has half the employees, is the whole reason we started this project. Some superintendents may never get that question, but the good ones are always prepared to answer it when the need arises.
Gerry Flaherty, CGCS at The Valley Club, received that question one day but was not prepared to answer it. The Board wanted detailed information, which would take weeks to compile and then more time to analyze.
That’s when taskTracker was born. Gerry needed an easy and straightforward way to track labor and report it to his committees. So he enlisted the help of his golf professional to write a web-based program to accomplish the task at hand. He only had one request. “I’m old; make it easy to use.”
