ChampionsWay Feature Reviews

Kelly Carmona

Above the rest in customer support. Unlimited flexibility in reporting. Excellent software!

2017-05-31

Reduced time in managing testing/rank/promotion. Auto billing customers is easy.

Pros

We were delightfully surprised at the ease of automated student payments coupled with still allowing families to self pay in house (opt out of auto billing).

Cons

Cannot process multiple transactions in one payment submission (tuition plus equipment and/or event, for example) causing multiple smaller submissions thru processor cause us to pay three credit card transaction fees instead of one.

Great support team. Always available when needed. Quick response.

2017-05-24

a feature in the program that would sort & group last names and family members together in the contact list to manage their memberships etc. much easier and faster

Pros

The auto billing feature saves me a lot of time and I no longer have to keep track of Exell spreadsheets.

This was not what I expected

2017-04-13

I have been frustrated since the beginning with this software. It does not do all that was promised to me. I am locked into a contract. I will be searching for another software at the end of my contract.

Pros

The interface looks nice.

Cons

I do not like the difficulty in finding reports, I have had trouble with the processing of payments.

Would be lost without it

2017-05-24

Total automation of marketing and student management

Pros

It's like having a valued employee working on your school 24-7 for a fraction of the cost. I couldn't pay one person enough to do what this software does for me and my martial arts school.

Cons

It doesn't teach my classes for me!

After a few months it was clear, this was a big mistake

2017-11-26

Pros

It offers many options. The Mr.Marketer option is actually very good. They offer valuable webinars which I liked a lot and got a ton of good info from.

Cons

They double billed my members, admitted to over billing me and still have not payed me back.

$500 a month to over $17,000 a month in less than 5 years. Championsway made this possible.

2015-01-31

You can count on the software to handle everything on the business side; billing direct, automated emails, lead nurturing & student nurturing, fully customized website, lead forms & landing pages, attendance tracking, campaign results, and financial reports, and much more. - This allows you to focus on the one thing that really matters - Teaching great classes, without worrying about the business side.

Use this software to manage a martial arts school

2017-10-18

Pros

Software had the capability of taking attendance with the use of a scanner.

Cons

I really didn't like this software at all. For my "real" job I provide technical support for multiple research projects. That being said, this software was one of the least user friendly products I've ever seen. It had weird date formats, features were buried under multiple layers that were not intuitive to find. We got lured away from another software to use this and we regretted every minute we used this product. Our previous software company offered to give us free service until we were out of the contract with this company.
