There are a variety of gym software solutions available to fitness businesses and each option will offer different features. As a result, it can be tricky to determine which of these tools will be the most beneficial to your business.
ClubRight works with hundreds of gyms, health clubs and leisure centres across the UK and in our experience, these are the top four features that can have the most positive impact on club operations.
Your gym software should help you stay in control of your memberships; allowing you to customise descriptions of what your plans offer, what access levels for each membership and how frequently payments are collected. Once the plans are created, you can focus on bringing in members and retaining them – a reliable gym management software will help you do both.
Bookings & Classes
Gym software can help with keeping an organised class schedule as well as giving your members the opportunity to book classes themselves, meaning you no longer need to be heavily involved in that process. Your staff can use the system to keep track of the diary, organise which trainer is leading the classes and fill cancellations or empty spaces to boost revenue.
Building a strong team around you will help your business thrive, but it’s difficult to manage your staff without a way to delegate tasks and maintain productivity. An intuitive gym management software will provide you with a list of tasks to be completed based on member activity that the team can follow up on, complete with a full audit log so you can see exactly who’s done what. Staff can also update member details, check their rota and follow up on enquiries from their own unique log in; meaning they won’t have access to sensitive business data.
Members can add their own card details via their Member App which helps to reduce failed payments. Once they’ve provided payment information, they’re free to buy new memberships and purchase anything else you’ve got on offer. That opens up more opportunities for you to generate revenue since you’re no longer limited to making sales in person. Gym software also supports automatic payments so that you can relax safe in the knowledge that your membership fees will be collected each month.
Gym software has a number of features that’ll help set your club up for success, but the most transformative tools focus on management, payments and staff. These areas are crucial to supporting business growth and ensuring your club thrives for years to come. Take the time to learn about the different features gym software offers and use them to their full potential. In doing so, you’ll save you (and your staff) hours of admin time every week.
