Have you ever found yourself wondering ‘wouldn’t it be awesome if my lead management system connected to my class management software?’ or ‘how much time would I save if my class management software was connected to my email automation platform?’ Well, we are happy to announce that dreams do come true!
Jackrabbit’s integration with Zapier is the most powerful by far. With the ability to connect your Jackrabbit account to over 6,000 other software applications, your goal to automate more of your business not only became possible but it also just got way easier.
If you aren’t sure what the heck Zapier is, let’s start there and then determine how it can revolutionize your business daily.
What is Zapier?
Zapier, pronounced za-pee-ur and rhymes with happier, is a connector tool. It allows you to associate your favorite web applications with each other and move information between them automatically using ‘Zaps’.
Think of it this way, yes – integrations between two of your favorite software tools are ideal but, integrations take time and can often limit you to particular platforms that you may not have chosen otherwise. Zapier opens the door to many more possibilities so you can use the applications of your choice to accomplish your goals.
How is Jackrabbit Class integrating with Zapier?
Integrating with Zapier was a popular request from Jackrabbit clients as a way to help them complete recurring tasks that are time-consuming or require manual work that leads to forgotten tasks, human error, or time not wisely spent. Anytime we can help youth activity centers do more in less time, it’s a no-brainer to make it happen!
With the Zapier integration, you can send information from Jackrabbit to another application and vice versa – specifically details related to the family, contact, student, class, and enrollment records. As with other product releases, Jackrabbit will continue to gather requests and determine additional information that can be shared in and out of other platforms to keep operations running smoothly with more automation.
What are the benefits of Jackrabbit Class integrating with Zapier?
I know what you’re thinking – this all sounds too good to be true. I promise you it’s not – it’s literally just that good. But stick with me because I want to share some ways that you can truly benefit from this integration sooner rather than later.
Better pipeline management
When it comes to managing classes and current students, Jackrabbit is the real deal but there are a lot of gym, swim school, and dance studio owners that are looking to manage information earlier in the funnel. Understandably so, knowing who is interested and considering taking classes at your youth activity center is important but does that information live in Jackrabbit at this stage?
If you are saying ‘no’, this is the perfect scenario to implement the Zapier integration with Jackrabbit. Managing your pipeline of leads in a traditional CRM (customer relationship management) platform makes sense so you can track activity, automate campaigns based on stages, and document sources. Think: Keap, HubSpot, Pipedrive, or even Google Sheets.
However, when they are ready to enroll in classes and become a paying customer, Zapier can send the information from your CRM to Jackrabbit eliminating the manual entry from your staff or asking the parent to duplicate the process they’ve already completed when they filled out an interest form or spoke with someone at the front desk.
Automated email workflows
Leveraging the integration between Jackrabbit and an email platform allows you to automate campaigns like a Welcome Email Series for new students that spans over the first two weeks of classes or Happy Birthday messages with a discount coupon for your pro-shop during the month of their birthday. You can even implement a campaign for dropped students who haven’t returned after 3 months as an effort to win them back.
The sky is really the limit here – these are just a few ideas that fellow clients have confirmed success with!
Efficient task management
Especially at the start of a new season or term, there are a lot of moving parts. Different staff members may be responsible for various recurring tasks or responsibilities and any effort to make that as smooth as possible is ideal.
If you use task management applications like Trello, ClickUp, or monday.com, you can ultimately automate your to-do list based on actions happening in Jackrabbit. If you hand out logo swag, t-shirt, or welcome packets to brand-new students on their first day of class, send the details you need from Jackrabbit directly to your task manager. The information appears without having to think or remember which report to pull and how often you should pull them, not to mention remembering if you’ve already done it or not!
