Integrating Payments with your Gym Software
Good business management software can simplify the way you run your gym or fitness studio.
When you're planning and running a full day's schedule of classes, it can be hard to find the time to manage enrolments and memberships, take care of marketing and promotions, re-schedule PT sessions, manage payments and run reports. By choosing a management software package that has all the right features for your business, you can ensure your centre runs smoothly. By integrating payments into this package as well, you’ll be able to realise the true benefits of a fully integrated system.
An all-in-one solution means better insights and more accurate data
Data accuracy is important for any business - and an all-in-one packaged solution ensures a high level of integrity. For Liz at Studio Pilates Ashgrove, the all-in-one solution provided a single view of the customer and an accurate ‘big picture’ view of the business.
Reflecting on the positive changes experienced after moving to an all-in-one system, Liz commented, “Ezidebit allows our clients to purchase our pilates packs easily. From our perspective it makes for seamless reconciliations and minimal time spent on administration. It's proven to be a user-friendly payment system that's quick and effortless for our business and our clients."
Save time on admin
Integrating payments with your gym software means you can access customer data and take payments from one place - and do away with manual double-handling and the pain that comes with trying to synchronise customer data across two separate systems.
For Kim O'Donnell, who heads Gecko Sports, payments integration made life a whole lot easier for her staff and customers. She remarks, "Ezidebit literally cuts my admin and financial tasks in half! It's great knowing we can rely on and trust the integration with Ezidebit to our booking system. It's streamlined, and our customer payments are safe and secure. It ticks along in the background, and there are automatic alerts set to follow up customers for failed payments. Easy!"
Keep security a priority
David Sims runs Think 24 Hour Fitness and believes data security should play an important part in choosing the right integrated software management system. He says, “As soon as we enter the payment data and punch in our customers' bank details into the software, it gets pushed straight across to Ezidebit and we never have to play with it again. We needed a software [integration] that was going to keep our members bank details as secure as possible, which Ezidebit does with its PCI DSS Level 1 compliance.”
So when you’re next stressing over running a full class schedule, managing enrolments and taking care of marketing, you can breathe easy and know that your membership payments are being taken care of. It's easy, simple and best of all - it's integrated.
