3 Things About Gym & Health Club Management Software You Didn’t Know – But Need To
The new year is here, and 2020 is poised to be a transformative one for gym owners and managers. Regardless of the size or offering of your gym, 2020 will be the year gyms finally break into the technology-first world of consumer (aka member) management. While some of this digital growth has been happening over the last few years, making an investment in gym management software should be at the top of your 2020 resolution list.
To help make your decision-making process easier, here are three things that you might not know about gym & health club management software – but need to:
- Gym management software touches all parts of your business. When most gym owners think of a gym management solution, they think of handling member operations or tracking staff timesheets. In reality, gym management software can help optimize every single part of your business, from bringing in new leads to scheduling out trainers to managing outstanding collections.
Additionally, your team can even manage auxiliary parts of your business – think tanning stations and personal training – in the same dashboard as your main gym operations for holistic management experience.
- It’s not just for your internal team. Investing in a gym management solution doesn’t just mean you’re buying a tool for your internal team to use. Your members are also going to benefit from your new solution, and not just because your team will be operating on a higher level.
Members can log in, access things like class schedules and automatic payment methods, and even update their preferences directly in the same solution that your team is using to manage all of these member-focused programs. With a single source of truth for both sides, nothing will slip through the cracks.
- The right software can grow with your operation. All gyms are not created equal. There is a serious difference in needs between a huge health club and a boutique yoga studio. But, both of these operations require the same basic management needs. In this way, the right software can grow and change with your gym needs.
Starting out your gym might need to focus on lead management, but down the road, you might add on personal training or class packs. The right gym management solution can be customized to fit your gym needs and can be supplemented down the road to fit your ongoing success.
