Leading fitness centre management software Clubware is enhancing its user experience with a suite of new and improved features around members, reporting, access control, administration and the web API in its latest version.
Originally launched in 2001 with several upgrades over the years, Clubware 4.2 is distributed by Debitsuccess and PaySmart in Australasia, DFC and Harlands in the United Kingdom, and now Debitsuccess in the United States. These companies are part of Transaction Services Group, a global full service payment solutions provider.
Designed and developed based on valuable feedback from users in the fitness industry, Clubware 4.2 includes a number of innovative features around different aspects.
Members – Exit time, duration, and visited zone information is now displayed on members’ visit information,
Reports – Reports can now be based on stored procedures rather than views, which has a number of advantages. Performance can often be substantially faster with a report based on a stored procedure,
Access Control – Support to allow third party access control providers to integrate via the Web API has been added. Clubware has developed a message broker to integrate with Gantner access control using this new capability,
Visit Zones – Zones can be grouped together to distinguish between different areas being visited by members. More details on Zone updates and improvements are available in the release notes.
Murray Barton, Group Head of Product, Transaction Services Group says an efficient membership management system is fundamental in the health and fitness industry.
“A comprehensive membership management system can make a significant difference for facilities in the increasingly competitive health and fitness market,” says Mr Barton. “Industry input is key to Clubware updates making it a valuable solution for clubs and facilities of any size – and, with new and improved features, Clubware 4.2 is delivering an even better customer experience.”
Clubware is currently used by more than 1000 health and fitness clubs across Australasia and the United Kingdom.
Its ongoing development and improvement are growing its appeal with clubs and associations outside the traditional health and fitness space. There is now a growing range of organisations finding its tools and features useful for running their administration.
