- Automated communications: All business boils down to relationships, but when it comes to your studio, the bond between your team and your students is the foundation upon which everything else is built. Thankfully, dance studio software makes keeping in touch with customers easier than ever. Send out regular emails or even texts expressing your appreciation, presenting special offers or sharing updates about your studio. Schedule progress reports so that your students know where they stand or respond to simple questions instantly. When your communication is automated, you’ll not only save time you would have otherwise spent keeping up with messages, but you’ll be that much closer to creating a tight-knit community around your studio.
- Fully mobile, cloud-based system: We live in a fully globalized world, meaning that there is no reason why you should have to be trapped in your office space to catch up with administrative tasks. After all, everything these days resides in the cloud. So too should your studio’s operation. With cloud-based dance studio software on hand, you can access your files anywhere and at any time from any computer. Want to check in while on vacation? Go ahead. Feeling under the weather? Run some payroll from the comfort of your own home instead. The options are literally endless, and you’ll never be freer than you will with a completely mobile setup. All you need is an internet connection, and you’re all set!
- Integration with Google systems: With as many tools as currently populate the marketplace, integration is an important consideration to prevent malfunction. Of course, one of the biggest online resources is Google, and now our studio software syncs up perfectly with Google’s suite of tools. This is especially useful element considering how common its usage is among fitness groups out there but will prove to be a draw simply because of how ubiquitous Google remains in the online sphere. Moreover, a top-notch dance studio software system should account for compatibility with multiple kinds of systems, such as Mac and PC. And, yes, ours most certainly does just that.
- Rapid implementation: With a system as comprehensive as dance studio software, you may assume that there is a steep learning curve ahead. However, nothing could be further from the truth, as the implementation only takes minutes to complete. We know you can’t afford to spend lengthy periods of time sacrificing your productivity for the sake of a new system. All you need to do is input your details, select your features and we’ll get you up and running in no time. That’s all there is to it. Don’t stress over what next steps may lie ahead. Just get back to work, and enjoy the benefits of your dance studio software.
- Event/recital management: Although its name pertains to the world of dance, dance studio software has a far wider application than simply that. In fact, any business model built around a class schedule can benefit from its multifaceted solution. This system can even aid in the organization of recitals, performances or other events. From the planning stages through to ticketing, your dance studio software can facilitate getting your team and students ready for your next big event. At its core, this system aims to provide a one-stop solution for all your studio needs, and this exciting feature is a testament to our dedication to making your studio (and your life) that much easier to manage.
- Simple, user-friendly design: If you were forced to content with a complicated interface, the road to mastering your new dance studio software would be that much longer. So, to assist you in adjusting to this enhanced way of conducting your business, this solution actually places usability high among its priorities. There’s no need for technical knowledge or programming expertise to navigate this system, and you receive a easy-to-follow breakdown of how best to utilize this tool to make your studio operation flow better than you ever could have imagined. After a few minutes interacting with its controls, you’ll be a pro at this software before you even realize it.
- Built-in online enrollment: Your entire business is built around recruiting and retaining your student body. To that end, it’s in your studio’s best interests to make enrollment as accessible as humanly possible. That’s why your dance studio software allows students to register and pay tuition online. Rather than making them sign up in person or via traditional methods like phone or email — all of which require a ton of back-end data management work — students can secure their place on your schedule anytime they want. There’s even a Parent Portal in case your studio specializes in classes for teens or children, and the system will track payments so that you never need to worry about losing track of potential profits.
- Systems optimization: You might be starting to realize just how powerful a tool dance studio software is. But one of the biggest advantages of having this system governing your entire operation is how much easier it makes everything. We’ve already mentioned how it can track and manage so many aspects of your business. However, this aspect is more than just a fringe benefit but one that actually defines how it revolutionizes your entire studio. Instead of outsourcing or investing in other systems to, for example, track your inventory or manage payments, you can let your complete studio management solution handle it all directly. Best of all, you won’t have to remember several different logins every time you get to work.
- AutoTuition: Technically, we mentioned this feature already when we addressed the built-in online enrollment module of your dance studio software. However, AutoTuition warrants its own mention as well. Consider the difficulty you currently encounter keeping track of student dues and chasing down overdue payments. Under this system, you can charge each student’s account with a single push of a button, and even better, you will be able to minimize financial errors, since our system will automatically crunch the numbers and eliminate the possibility of human error. When your payments become easier to manage, the amount of stress you’ll undergo will dwindle accordingly.
- Fully customizable: Everyone has their own distinct way of doing things. You should never have to compromise your own process for the benefit of any system, not even one as invaluable and far-reaching as dance studio software. So you’ll be happy to know that the solution is completely customizable. Choose from a wide variety of features the ones you want to employ, and feel free to adjust them to your specific needs. For all we know, your studio may have a very unique approach to class schedules, interacting with students and the like, and we wouldn’t want you to change that now, especially if the results are bearing significant fruit. Make dance studio software system work for you, not the other way around.
- Reporting: In any endeavor, knowledge is power. In the business world, that knowledge most often comes from a sophisticated reporting module that you can use to generate dozens upon dozens of reports. As with much of your dance studio software, these reports can be manipulated to analyze many different elements, but the end result is the same. When you take a closer look at the various components that make up your studio — whether that is your team’s timesheets or trends in class attendance — you have the chance to identify underlying problems and opportunities for growth. But only by running these various data sets would you ever uncover a new methodology to improve your business.
- Costume Management: For a dance studio like yours, costumes are probably an essential part of the process. In any performance, you need to look the part to really sell the moves you’ve been tirelessly practicing. Thankfully, dance studio software takes this into account and offers a module for tracking the sizes and measurements of your students. You can even create an order form directly within the system that you can send directly to your costume supplier, minimizing the hassle of staying ahead of the game and preparing for your next recital or other event. If your focus is on a discipline other than dance, the same principle applies to other critical types of equipment or inventory as well.
- Customer Support: We’ve designed your dance studio software to be as all-encompassing and easy to use as possible. Yet, even with all of the tools we’ve built into it, we know that questions will inevitably still arise from time to time. For this too, we have you covered. Unlike many of our competitors, we are available via both phone and email, placing an emphasis on getting you the answers you need as quickly as we can. Moreover, we provide you with a bevy of supplementary resources to help address your concerns and build your knowledge base of our solution, including extensive online guides and a detailed FAQ section.
- Intuitive billing system: Normally, a studio like yours might require an entire billing team or, at the very least, a dedicated office manager who keep tabs on your billing and payroll issues. With dance studio software, such a role is a thing of the past. Your students can pay their bills without any response necessary from your team, and the system automatically updates the charges runs recurring payments to prevent late or missed payments altogether. You can even use studio management software to track and handle payroll for your team. Never has it been this easy to stay up-to-date with your financial needs.
- Sophisticated security: Compliance is a big topic nowadays, especially as fraud and identity theft continue to run rampant. Our system makes security a top priority so that you don’t have to worry about your business or your students falling prey to cyber-attacks. Our merchant gateways embrace data security standards of the major card associations — such as CISP, PCI and PA-DSS — to ensure that all of your data remains security and away from malicious users who would exploit your studio. Such steps are not only vital to the financial health of your studio and students but also for the long-term reputation of your business.
