We’re sure that you know online and mobile booking are really great ways to drive new clients to your gym or studio. Not only does it take away the stress of managing bookings and payments at the front desk, but gym management software also makes it so much more convenient for your members, ultimately giving them a better experience with your gym or studio.
When your members have a great experience, it not only helps you to turn first timers into regulars, but it encourages them to spread the good word to friends and family, helping you expand your business's reach beyond locals.
You now have the opportunity to give members more control over their fitness regime with a seamless online and mobile extension of your business for booking and payments. With confidence that an integrated gym and studio management software is securely taking care of your information and automating processes to make your life easier, what's not to love? The list of benefits is endless…
Your members and potential members have 24 hour access, 7 days a week to your class schedule, membership details, courses and products, resulting in more bookings per week
- You can anticipate attendances and class demand. If pre class bookings are low you can hit members up with a special offer through in-app notifications or email
- No shows are immediately reduced as the class payment is made in advance
Let’s take a look at the key features Glofox gym management software provides that really drive your bookings through the roof:
1. Schedule integration & online booking through your website
Glofox is gym management software that integrates seamlessly with your current website, creating a branded ‘Website Portal’ for new customers and members to easily view your live schedule and purchase classes, courses or memberships directly on your website.
If you make changes to your timetable or membership options in your Dashboard, your website portal will automatically update to reflect these changes, saving you time in your busy day.
If you don't have a website or if it is currently under development, no problem! With Glofox, you have the option to host a schedule and payment integration with your Facebook page by adding a 'Book Now' button beside the 'like' button on your gym or studio's page. If you wish to take advantage of your website and Facebook page to drive bookings through online and mobile channels, you can do both!
2. mobile booking & payments through your member app
Enabling online bookings through your website and Facebook page is a great start to driving bookings. However, when coupled with a custom branded Member App, you have the chance to supercharge your bookings to a whole new level!
Your Member App has everything you need to keep members and potential members engaging with your studio or gym.
The Key Member App Features Include:
Your members or drop-ins can make secure payments for classes, memberships and products with ease through your Member App. You can choose to set recurring payments for memberships over any time period.
Members can book into a class on the go in a couple of taps through your Member App. If a class is full, the waiting list feature alerts members if a space becomes available, ensuring your classes are always full.
You can motivate your members to come in more often and keep them up to date by sending in-app notifications. Automated alerts ensure your members never miss a class or a due payment, keeping your cash flow stable.
MOBILE BOOKING instant check-in
Self service check-in through an in-app barcode or key fob via scanner helps your members get to class quicker. At the same time, you reduce the need for front desk staff so you can spend your precious time with your members. A win win for all!
Your members can purchase your products directly on your Member App Store with the option to collect it on their next visit.
Well there you have it, the most sought after gym and studio management features all in one solution!
