Does walking into your business each day feel a bit like walking into a war zone? Do you fall asleep with a racing mind, and wake up with a pounding heart? Are you endlessly checking your bank account, struggling to manage employees, or refreshing Facebook posts to see what kind of feedback you’re getting? Dance studio management software can stop the madness once and for all.
Don’t believe it? You will after your free 15-day trial of The Studio Director.
The problem with running a business is that it’s more than any one person, short of a miracle, can do on their own. You have to take on dozens of roles — manager, accountant, legal expert, architect, designer, and teacher, to name but a few. Control the chaos and get back your life with The Studio Director. This cloud-based, user-friendly, all in one dance studio management program can revolutionize the way you do business — and maybe, just maybe, open up a few new opportunities.
Everything in One Place
Is your office covered in papers? Are you trying to manage your business with a hodgepodge of apps, exports, and files on your computer? The Studio Director streamlines your operations by offering all of the information you need in one convenient location. Easily view reports, student data, and so much more. With your new found access to important data, you’ll be better equipped to make key decisions. That means less stress, less decision fatigue, and more time to enjoy your studio.
Access Information on the Go
The Studio Director believes a program is worth little if it chains you to an office. After all, you need to attend meetings, network within your community, and of course, teach classes. Our cloud-based software is accessible anywhere. Not only does that arm you with the information you need to run your business wherever you are and wherever you go. it also protects vital data. Information stored on a hard drive can go the way of the dodo with a catastrophic computer crash. No matter how badly your computer misbehaves, The Studio Director safely guards your precious data in the cloud.
You can’t reasonably expect to do everything yourself, particularly if you want it done right. So that means you’ll need to hire employees. A staff comes with its own set of challenges: managing people, hiring and firing them, and giving clear feedback on performance. Of course, employees are also expensive. You’ll need to pay them a competitive wage, not to mention withhold payroll taxes and comply with local, state, and federal employment laws.
It’s enough to make your head spin, and it may just cause you to throw your hands up in the air. Don’t. Make The Studio Director your problem-free employee instead. We do most of the administrative tasks an army of employees can do, but without the managerial and tax headaches — and definitely without the hefty price tag. That means more money and time to grow your business and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
When you first dreamed of your business, you probably thought that the early years would be a lot of work, but that you could eventually step back and enjoy your creation. Now you know better. There’s no such thing as “set it and forget it” in the competitive world of fitness studios.
Armed with The Studio Director, though, you no longer have to spend all of your time managing your business. We automate many functions, including class enrollment. That means you can get the break your hard work should have earned you long ago. And as everyone knows, with a bit of a break often comes a creative flurry that can help you take your business to the next level.
Data is useless if you don’t know what to do with it. Instead of giving you a pile of raw data out of context, The Studio Director synthesizes the most important information about your business into a variety of customized — and customizable — business reports. Don’t dart back and forth from screen to screen. View one of our customized reports to get the information you need, without crunching numbers, calling accountants, or losing your mind over spreadsheets.
Better data means better decisions. Better decisions means less stress. Less stress means a more successful business and more money. Isn’t that why you went into business in the first place?
Your time is your most valuable asset. That’s why you bill for it. Unlike money, once your time is gone there’s no getting it back. So why would you want to spend the precious time you have — the very ingredient that makes up your one precious life — on menial tasks such as billing and managing enrollment?
The Studio Director takes over these annoying tasks for you. That frees you to pursue more creative work, to teach classes, to recruit new students, and maybe even to get some rest. When you can dedicate your time to these tasks, you’ll have more money-making opportunities, greater creative freedom, and more opportunities to enjoy the business you’ve worked so hard to build. And who wouldn’t want that?
A Better Student Experience
Ultimately, your business must cater to your students to succeed. And what do students want? They want customized feedback that helps them grow. The Studio Director allows you to easily track student progress with personalized progress reports and report cards.
Your students also want to be able to enroll in classes without calling or coming into your studio. They definitely don’t want to hear that the class they planned to enroll in is full. The Studio Director manages enrollment so students can enroll online. When a course is full, we automatically close it, reducing student frustration and making it so much easier to calculate course enrollment.
This, in turn, can help you better prepare your instructors — and assess how many instructors you actually need. Over time, you may even save money, since carefully monitored enrollment helps you determine precisely whom to hire, whom to fire, and how many classes to plan for next season.
