Scheduling
The state-of-the-art scheduling area in SportsBiz gives you an intuitive visual representation of your classes. There are three different views, the daily schedule, weekly, and staff schedule. Each schedule can be separated by venue. You can easily colour code your classes and filter them by type. Managing your classes could not be easier.
SportsBiz allows you to manage classes with ease. With a few simple clicks, you can set up a class and enrol students. You can schedule classes any way you like – weekly, daily, or a custom setup. Classes can be linked to terms or semesters and staff. One-off schedule changes can be made quickly and efficiently.
When a student misses a class and is marked absent, they are automatically added to a make-up class list. The student can easily be re-enrolled into a future class. You can configure a make-up policy and SportsBiz will let you know how many make-up classes are owing to a student.
Our event planner allows you to set-up other events like concerts and special events. You can configure the individual event’s sessions, include participants and set times and durations.
Customers & Students
SportsBiz will keep your customer and student details organised. Our intuitive interface enables you and your staff to add and edit customers and students. Both customers and students can be made inactive when they no longer attend classes, keeping their information on file as historical records. Customers can also be divided into categories for easy access.
Our comprehensive skill tracking module allows you to keep track of your students' progression over time. You can print out customised progress reports to give to your customers with all the details and notes of their progression.
Our waiting list allows for customers to request places in classes that are not yet available or for classes that do not yet exist. This easy to use tool provides flexible filters and instant feedback when positions become available for students on the waiting list.
Keeping track of students' attendances could not be easier with our simple attendance module. Absence reasons can be customised and historical attendance reports easily generated.
Our check-in app is a tablet-based Android app designed so that your customers or students can easily check themselves in as being attended when arriving to your classes. It saves lots of time by automating your attendance recording because you or your staff no longer have to manually mark attendances.
The app allows customers to check-in using tap & go cards, barcode scanning, student name/date-of-birth or via the parent's mobile phone number.
This is an add-on feature that can be activated any time to enhance your business options. Additional charges may apply.
Staff Management
All staff and other users’ information can be easily stored in one place. Staff can be assigned different user access levels for privacy and security of your business. You can also generate detailed work time reports for your staff.
Our powerful smartphone/tablet app allows access to your schedule, customer details, class details, attendances, skill tracking and invoices, while on the move. You can easily login to your account anywhere with any Android or iOS device, bringing customer service to your clients instead of having them come to you!

Online Components
Customers have the option to manage every aspect of their account using the portal.

The aim is to reduce time spent in administration. Answering phones and adding new enrolments into your system takes up a lot of time. With our online class registration, current and potential customers are able to register and reserve spaces in a class directly through your website. You will then be notified instantly and from there staff members can automatically add all the details straight into the account and enroll the student straight into a class. This feature is an added benefit for people viewing your website and will also save the staff members a lot of time.
Here are the benefits of using Online Class Registration:
  • Saving time spent on manual data entry
  • Increase business efficiency
  • Fast and easy sales
  • Extra service for customers

Our online bookings add-on allows your customers to book a studio online and pay for it immediately via a secure payment page. This can help ease the burden of over-the-counter administration. Online bookings can also dramatically improve the efficiency of your business and cut costs as staff no longer need to take bookings over the phone.
A live studio schedule is published on your website which then allows your customers to book any free studio and pay online via credit card. The online bookings add-on is an extremely powerful addition to any business wanting to streamline their booking process.
