I needed to concentrate on coaching.

Before using ClubRight, I was very busy all of the time. Not only did I have to teach the classes, but I had class queues of about 20-40 minutes where I was collecting money or talking to parents about the fees and chasing late payments. My time wasn’t best spent doing that, I should’ve been concentrating on delivering a great class to my students. It was hard to keep track of everything and stay on top of my admin while trying to maintain a high standard of coaching.

Why I chose ClubRight.

Our goal was to find a solution to help control our daily class bookings, classes and stay on top of payments. That way, we would be able to spend more time with our clients and concentrate on growing the company.

A friend of mine introduced me to ClubRight at first, and after having a quick online demo with their founder I was confident that the software would help us. They offered online joining and bookings, which would help me automate that process to a point and reduce the amount of paperwork I had. ClubRight also has an integration with Xero Accounting Software and some powerful reporting that would be valuable to us. They also offered a parent/guardian log-in option, which would be useful for the parents of children attending our camps because it would allow them to manage their child’s bookings.

Initially, I was concerned about the setup process leading to even more paperwork and manual labour, but it turns out I didn’t need to worry about any of that.

Life with ClubRight

Soon after the demo, we had some training on how to use the software and then we were up and running. Once our members started using the system we had lots of positive feedback; it was easy for them to use and it made booking onto camps much more convenient.

The system has also made it far easier to manage the club and stay on top of our operations. You can customise the software colours and add in your logo so that it’s fully branded to your business, which looks really professional. I love the birthday notification feature which allows me to send messages to my students on their birthdays – it’s great attention to detail. Little things like that allow me to deliver an even better service to students without any extra work.

We’ve also received an exceptional level of support from Wayne and his team, it’s second to none. ClubRight and the team behind it have helped me feel so much more in control and I feel more in touch with my business. Perhaps best of all, I’m finally able to spend more time with my family because I’m no longer sitting at my desk for hours battling to stay on top of paperwork.
