After EXTENSIVE research, all the software I could find for gyms, fitness centers, dance studios, etc. were way too expensive and they had so many bells and whistles I would never use. All I wanted was a system to keep track of my memberships and class packages, as well membership stats (date and time of sign-ins, number of students in a class, number of members at any point in time, the date membership expire ,etc. etc. etc.). I also wanted to be able to get some financial reports, such as payments received, broken down by cash, credit card and check. And of course, the cost of the software was very important.
I downloaded the free demo and figured I would set it up and see how it functioned. I gave it a good workout and it seemed to fit my needs.
More good news! The system is very inexpensive (a fraction of the cost of its competitors I could find). So far so good.
Lastly, I wanted to talk to someone currently using it. I contacted Jerry, and he was kind enough to give me the name and number of a Zumba studio in Florida to talk to. The owner of that studio was VERY helpful. She spoke very highly of the software, and even took the time to tell me each feature she was using, and how it worked for her.
I did my test of the free download over Labor Day weekend, 2011, and it seemed to handle everything I was looking for and then some. By the following Monday, I purchased the software and was using it at the studio.
MIS worked unbelievably GREAT!!! Since then, I’ve learned more by using.
There are a few minor things I would like to see changed in terms of filtering reports and making changes to existing information. Nothing I can’t work around, and may or may not matter to most users.
In summary, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this software.
