We are pleased and excited to announce that the long-awaited group membership feature is here!
With the new group membership feature, you can have any number of members under the same membership, which is perfect for couples and families. Each member will continue to have their own account, but only one bill for the group will be issued for the membership which simplifies the billing and sign up process.
Here’s an example of how a gym owner could take advantage of this feature.
You could create a membership called “Family”, configure it for $100 for the first person and $25 for each additional member. Then, let’s say Jim and Laura and their son Zach want to sign up for a new membership at your gym. Jim logs onto your website, chooses the Family membership for 3 people, creates an account and during the registration process adds Laura and Zach’s name to the membership. When he completes the process, your gym will have three new members and only one bill for $150 for the whole family.
Then when Jim and his family want to come to the next class, they can log into the member website, and Jim can make reservations on behalf of all three family members.
There are a number of flexible billing options for group memberships, you can:
• Bill on a per member basis
• Have a single price (great for large groups)
• Have an initial fee for the first member, and a different fee for each additional member
Additionally, group members can make reservations through the member website on behalf of other members in their group, which is awesome! We will expand this feature to the iPhone and Android mobile apps in a few weeks.
Gym owners can also specify the maximum number of members a group can have on any given group membership, so you don’t end up with 193 people on the same “Family” membership! To create a new group membership, just start a new membership and check off the “Group Membership” checkbox, and all of the group membership features will appear on the screen.
As always, we are constantly innovating and striving to come up with new ways to save gym owners time and money so you can be doing what you love – getting people fit!
Have a great weekend, let us know if you have any questions.
