Cons

With the latest update I have to comment that the colors are bad for me as very light and difficult to read for us in the office.

TH

TIna H.

The way the account is set up in the portal is also confusing to many of our families. We need to have more font/bolding/italicizing options for the class/event confirmations.

KS

Kim S.

Customer Service Issue: Phone calls are not answered, a message is left then a call is returned within one hour. It is inconvenient based on time zone and class operating times.

MD

Monique D.

Cons

Most other companies have billing "included" and a much higher price. I don't need billing software, so it would have been a waste to pay more money per month for a feature I'm not using.

Poor user interface or rather it should be less techy.

DW

Inability to maintain belt progression. I - received blue belt 6/1, 1st stripe was received on 7/1 etc.
