Health club software takes care of the day-to-day management of your gym.
One of the best things about being alive in 2018 is the incredible technology at your fingertips. Nearly every American owns a smartphone, and these devices allow people to take pictures, make phone calls, make video calls, and search the Internet, no matter where they go. If you tried to explain a smartphone to someone who lived in the 1980s and was no longer with us, they would be absolutely awestruck. In fact, they’d probably think you were lying. But that’s the reality of today. There are all sorts of incredible technological advances being made, and most people aren’t even impressed anymore when new breakthroughs come through. Everyone just assumes that technology is going to continue to advance, and such advancements have just become a regular part of life.
One of the coolest advancements in technology that’s really making a difference for businesses around the world are software improvements. There are all sorts of incredible softwares out there for businesses to purchase, and many of them make the practice of actually running a business much, much easier. To make this point, let’s look at the example of health club software and how it’s improving the operations of health clubs around the country.
In case you weren’t familiar with the term before reading this, health club software is software that allows health clubs to better communicate with their members. The software itself is run by a third-party. The members of the gym download an application on their phone, and then the gym operator can input information into that app from their computer. The gym manager or owner can put into the app all of their class schedules, what the hours of the gym are, updates to membership fees, a live tracker of how busy the gym is, a tracker showing how full classes are, an option for people to enroll in classes right through the app, information about the instructors leading group trainings, and so much more. They can essentially put the gym’s entire schedule into the app, and then the members of the gym can view that schedule to best plan when they’re going to the gym and what they’re going to do when they get there.
It’s hard to overstate how much of an improvement this is from the chalkboards, bulletin boards, and whiteboards that gyms used to put this information on. Instead of actually having to physically go to the gym, members can see everything through the app and then make a decision about when to plan their gym time. In essence, gym management software like this takes care of the day-to-day management of your gym. All you have to do is input the correct information into the app and then members can use the app to figure out what’s going on at the gym. Your call volume and customer service requests will plummet, and all you’ll be left with to do is figuring out what activities your gym should offer, what equipment needs replaced or repaired, and just how you can improve the overall atmosphere of the gym. Software like Clubware from TSG drastically reduces the amount of time gyms spend on administration, which frees up employees to work on improving customer experience.
