Smart Club Solutions

Royal Cork Yacht Club


Founded in 1720 and based in the South of Ireland, Royal Cork is the oldest Yacht Club in the world. With around 1500 members, the Club regularly hosts national and international championships.

We have been working with Royal Cork since 2008. Our initial solution included Smart Membership management software, Smart Cards, 4 tills with Smart EPoS and Stock Control, 10 Smart Access control points and comprehensive installation, training and project management. This project also marked the introduction of our wireless access control solutions, enabling the Club to grant Smart Card members automated access to relevant areas of the clubhouse as well as the marina and remote individual jetties where traditional hard-wiring was not possible. These remote wireless access points communicate in real-time with the Smart Membership software in the Club’s office using card readers and a wireless bridge.

“ We are delighted with our Smart Club Solution here at Royal Cork. The control of our membership database has improved greatly, and the ability to restrict access or remove discounts when required is very useful. Moving to access for members only was a great incentive for more people to join. The training, backup and service is excellent. We will be partnering with Smart Club into the future and would recommend the company to other Clubs.”
