The New Year is always a good time to make some enhancements to your business operation. In the case of a fitness center, the waning weeks of the old year are the perfect time to invest in and install new software that will serve you and your clients better.

At my gym On Target Fitness, the owner is constantly with his client management software, Mindbody. As a user, I suppose it is convenient to login and register for a class, but for ease-of-use I’ve found the interface clunky and annoying. If you are among the clients of Mindbody who have been thinking about making a change, here are a few reasons why now is the ideal time.

You’re Out of Add-Ons

You’ve downloaded and installed just about every add-on that you can find. Even so, there are still functions that your fitness software cannot provide. At this point, you need to make a switch just to position your business for more growth in the coming year.

Why not switch to software that already has what you need without having to find any more add-ons? Take a good look at the primary alternatives to Mindbody and you are sure to find software that has all the functions that you desire.

The Old Software Doesn’t Always Work Properly

No matter how much you try to work around the limits of the current software, it still doesn’t work the way it should. Even when you can get through to someone in customer support, they are rarely able to come up with a reason why the software is performing in such an erratic manner.

To be honest, you are a little tired of never knowing if the software will respond properly when you attempt to reserve a class for a client or prepare an invoice. Like many other clients of Mindbody, it’s time to check out the alternatives on the market and see if you can come up with a more stable software solution.

Your Need Something More Compatible With Your Other Software

You’ve upgraded some of the other business software that you use, and the older fitness software isn’t compatible with the new additions. That means some of the information that used to be so easy to share between programs has to be manually entered. Since that creates more of an opportunity for some sort of data entry issue to occur, something needs to be done now. The best option is to look at different alternatives to Mindbody and find one that will communicate with your new software without any issues.

New Software Would Mean Improved Communication With Clients

Do you find that the present software does not offer as many means of communication with your clients as you would like? Can they use the current software to communicate easily with you or your staff. If you are not happy with the resources provided in the software you already own and there are no add-ons to improve things, it’s time to do what many clients of Mindbody have already done: find new software.

Put the final weeks of the current year to good use and explore different alternatives to Mindbody. Find the right one and watch how it makes managing the fitness centre easier, benefits your clients, and positions the business to enjoy a significant amount of growth in the coming year.
