To manage the details of 4 music schools and a dance school, Kelly Bowlin, owner of Gwinnett School of Music definitely needs a robust system. Data is the life blood of any business and Kelly’s organization is no different. Data is critical to managing day-to-day tasks and in making strategic business decisions. The single database foundation of Jackrabbit’s system enables owners to easily do both.
“Having multiple locations, yet a single database to work in, is awesome and its one of the features that gives Jackrabbit such power.” Kelly Bowlin, Gwinnett School of Music
The single database foundation enables some powerful features, two of which Kelly describes.
REPORTING PROVIDES CONSUMABLE DATA TO DECISION MAKERS | Nothing is worse than having no data to support decision making – except perhaps having data that you can’t use. Jackrabbit’s single database also makes amazingly enlightening reporting possible. And Jackrabbit’s report choices give you great starting points for quickly accessing data that is useful. And the feature is so flexible that you can specify endless criteria to tweak your reports to your delight and then save the report so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time you want your unique report.
“Jackrabbit is powerful for slicing and dicing data. And doing it isn’t complicated. In fact, Jackrabbit reporting is the only reasonable way that I can get data that is consumable – that actually has value to me in managing and growing our school.” Kelly Bowlin, Gwinnett School of Music
AUTOMATED PAYMENT SYSTEM IS BUSINESS CHANGING | Any size music school would find Jackrabbit’s payment system beneficial but it has a special place in Kelly’s heart because he can do a single process to get paid for all 5 locations. One of Jackrabbit’s key benefits is how it leverages automation and its payment process is a fine example of how taking humans out of the process creates tremendous advantages. Revenue reporting in Jackrabbit gives owners valuable tracking and comparisons that also change their confidence in revenue-related business decisions.
“Jackrabbit has the coolest payment system of any software of its kind. I love that I can batch payments together with their approval codes and see them accurately attributed in reports. I can run revenue tracking reports and create year-to-year comparisons. Being able to do this has totally changed the way I make decisions. The payment process has been transformational for our entire organization.” Kelly Bowlin, Gwinnett School of Music
