Jackrabbit Class is the leading cloud-based class management software for youth activity centers. Our product is made for busy owners, like yourself, so you can run your program effectively without losing time for yourself.
14 features clients love most about Jackrabbit Class
Jackrabbit Class is full of time-saving features that are meant to help you run your dance studio, gym, pool, classroom, etc. Obviously, we are a little partial to our software – what can we say?
That’s why we are sharing a list of fan-favorite features from Jackrabbit Class clients. After all, they are walking in your shoes daily and know what features mean the most for owners like yourself!
1. Convenient and easy-to-use Online Registration
Having your classes available for online registration with Jackrabbit Class is a win for you and your parents. They can register online at their convenience using their mobile phone, tablet, or computer. Having access to your classes 24/7 assures that a working mom can register her 3 year old for dance class without having to stop by the studio to sign up manually.
The easier enrollment is, the higher your numbers will be!
2. Mobile-friendly and all-in-one Parent Portal
The Jackrabbit Class Parent Portal is a one-stop-shop for families to stay in contact with you and your youth activity center. Parents can log in to the portal from their phone to enroll in classes and events, make payments, see their students ’ achieved skills, view attendance, and much more!
Parents love the feeling of being connected to your program without even being in the building!
3. Effortless class preparation with the Staff Portal
The Jackrabbit Class Staff Portal is a teacher’s best friend. By logging in to one place, instructors can take attendance, update skills, view lesson plans, email parents, and enter their time worked. Like the parent portal, the staff portal is mobile-friendly and can be accessed from any device.
Your teachers will feel more confident than ever with access to live, up-to-date information at their fingertips for each class!
4. Payroll integration with the Time Clock
Payroll isn’t everyone’s favorite. Having more staff onboard is a sign of growth. However, the extra effort added for new staff on payroll can make it feel less exciting. The good news is, the Jackrabbit Staff Portal includes the Time Clock. Managers can approve time for their team and entries for the pay period can be exported to QuickBooks or our very own payroll partner, Express Payroll.
The Time Clock with payroll integration options makes payroll a breeze for you and your staff!
5. A full suite of robust Reports
Whether you are looking for reports to help you file your taxes or you want to spot enrollment trends, Jackrabbit Class comes equipped with reports for just about anything you could think of!
A client favorite is the Process Class Registrations Report that helps in the craziest (yet most exciting) time of the year for you. Working through this report keeps you and your staff updated on each pending registration.
Class, student, financial information and much more is already in the Jackrabbit application. Our reports just help you get that information in the format you need!
6. Customizable skills and tracking
Each youth activity center is unique and may focus on different skills for different classes or levels. With Jackrabbit Class, you can create the skills (adding videos if you like), assign them to corresponding classes, and update the progress during class with the Staff Portal. If you are a swim school and having a tablet poolside isn’t ideal, you can use the skills worksheet instead.
Skills are a great way to show students and their parents what kind of progress they have made and what to work towards next!
7. Easy scheduling of classes with the Weekly Calendar
The Jackrabbit Class Weekly Calendar is a great way to see your class schedule in a visual format. With the option to enroll students directly from the calendar based on current openings, your office staff can quickly add students to classes. There are additional views that allow you to see classes by room and instructor. A must to make sure rooms and teachers aren’t double-booked.
The Weekly Calendar has proven to be our clients’ command central!
There’s more to go but maybe you are already convinced you must see what Jackrabbit Class is about. Schedule a live demo with a Product Coach and see it in action!
8. Clear and concise tracking of Staff Certifications
It is important for your staff to continue their education in your industry through training and certifications. With the Jackrabbit Class Staff Certifications feature, you can dictate if a certification is optional or required and what the expiration time period is. Without extra effort, you can see who is coming close to their expiration dates and who is overdue.
The Staff Certifications feature helps you hold your staff accountable so you can have the best instructors on staff!
9. Streamlined tuition billing
I love billing tuition, said no business owner ever!
While it isn’t something you enjoy, your business must keep going. With Jackrabbit Class, there’s automated discounting and prorating built into tuition billing – making your life easier and the process more streamlined. No more manually calculating discounts and manually posting fees.
Jackrabbit Class has robust fee posting features to help you spend less time on billing and more time with your students!
10. Effective communication options
Ever heard that saying – communication is key? Nothing could be truer. So how can you get the right message to the right people at the right time?
Having a cloud-based class management software like Jackrabbit Class with communication tools included allows you to do everything you need all in one place. From mass emails to texting to a branded mobile app, you can distribute messages based on importance, audience, etc.
Jackrabbit Class helps you stay in touch with your families in the most effective ways!
11. Seamless integration with Quickbooks
QuickBooks is used by many business owners to gain a full picture of their business. Integrating revenue over to QuickBooks was a no-brainer for Jackrabbit Class to help our clients tap into their financial status regularly.
With a few clicks, you can easily send over a time period of revenue to your QuickBooks account without duplicating efforts in multiple places!
12. An efficient internal notes tracking system
Having a place to keep internal notes is important for the industries we serve. From notes about account status to long-term absences, being able to notate important conversations and find the notes later is a must. With a modern tagging feature and keyword search, you can find any note on any record quickly.
Jackrabbit Class believes that internal communication through notes is just as important as external communication with your families!
13. Collaborative Idea Portal
Here at Jackrabbit Class, our priority is to give you the tools you need to succeed. The Idea Portal has been an important resource when it is time for our product team to make decisions on what new features and enhancements our software application needs next.
Without the ideas submitted from our clients, getting the extensive insight we need to make our software better would be an even greater challenge.
14. Built-in support system
Jackrabbit Class takes great pride in the support we offer our clients. With access to unlimited support resources, including a very knowledgeable team of support experts, we believe in doing everything we can to help our clients succeed in their business while having the best experience with Jackrabbit.
