Delivering Elevated Services

Barron Gymnastics developed their mobile app with their customers’ experience in mind. The Mobile Inventor team – that is well-acquainted with Jackrabbit – designed a simplified and very user-accommodating process for registration and account management that is conveniently downloaded and used on smartphones.

“We’ve basically put customer portal functionality on their phones – right next to their Facebook and banking apps. We’ve elevated our services for parents and given them conveniences in doing business with us that other children’s facilities aren’t providing.” 

Raising the Bar on Innovation

Establishing of competitive advantage for any business involves two things today: technology and convenience. Today’s parents prefer using their smartphones to maneuver their daily activities so gyms are wise to invest in having a presence there.

“We’ve definitely been able to set ourselves above our competitors with our mobile app. It has helped us to enhance our customer service and make our company more diverse. This is definitely technology that others with parent-centric operations should invest in to make their parents happier.”

Seeing is Believing

Mobile Inventor’s apps give you return on investment and you have the statistics to prove it. By using the administrative dashboard statistics to track registrations to their source, you can get a clear indication of how many are generated from your app

“We know that our investment in our mobile app pays off. We track our statistics closely so that we know how to tweak our spending decisions to get the best results. Our average of 100 registration per month from approximately 1000 monthly visitors, lets us know that we’ve done something right for our customers. Mobile Inventor has helped us to make a difference in the gym’s reputation and in the bottom line.”

Barron Gymnastics Uses Technology to Heighten Efficiencies Without Losing Personal Touch

Barron Gymnastics needed to move to a web-based class management but the owners had concerns about the cost associated with implementing software. They also had concerns about the impact online processes would have on its face-to-face customer relationships. How quickly they would be able to see return on the investment in the new system? How would they maintain their connection with customers if they weren’t talking to them each month when they collected payments?

“Changing to Jackrabbit has made a big difference in our efficiencies. Automated processes – like online registration – take staff out of the data entry process and give them more time for interacting on a personal level with families.” Joe Barron, Barron Gymnastics

VALUE OF ONLINE PLATFORM QUICKLY REALIZED | Barron’s staff saw immediate improvements in process efficiencies and overall office productivity. The incredible improvements in operations make the cost of the system irrelevant. In fact, customer satisfaction rose right along with efficiency and productivity because customers were ecstatic with the new online registration process.

“Our staff can get ‘business’ out of the way of what really matters to each student’s learning experience.” Joe Barron, Barron Gymnastics

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS BLOSSOM AFTER IMPLEMENTATION | What Barron learned was this: Their real connection with families had nothing to do with tuition collection and the process of registering but everything to do with the personal connections that being freed from the computer allowed. Instead of losing their personal touch, Barron’s actually experienced even more meaningful interactions between staff and families because the activities in the office no longer centered on entering data, but on teaching and real conversations.

“Jackrabbit’s automated processes heighten efficiencies and encourage growth strategies for us as owners. The system excels in helping us bring customers in online and then look after them as they mature.” Joe Barron, Barron Gymnastics
