Pros

The best feature I like about the product is the willingness of Scott to make upgrades based on my needs. I like the check-in screen view you can see all info from one screen.
I think this is a great application and I would recommend it to anyone.
I think this is a great application and I would recommend it to anyone.

Pros

Integrated modules that work seamlessly together, it is real time, and the ease of using iPads for POS. Buz offers fantastic solutions for F&B and golf retail and tee time.
The team at Buz provides great support and are often adding new features based on our feedback. We just started a website redesign with Buz Software and are so excited to see the final result.
Very user friendly with excellent drill-down capabilities when setting up reports and dashboards. Very quick access to member information, GL account detail, supplier detail etc.

Cons

This program keeps losing transactions, freezing, charging invoice payments that are not authorized.
You get what you pay for. You can add all the contact information for every member.
I would change the main check-in screen to exclude the list of members and their check-in numbers. We operate a busy 24hr facility and the check in desk is often not occupied by a staff member.

Cons

Majority of non-Members complain they can't or don't want to use it. The number of errors made by Guests is extremely high.
Online booking system for non-Members is very poor.
Department Heads can see their financials in real time, run reports and drill down to see exactly what expenses are being charged to their departments.

Club Sentry

Club sentry is paramount to our gym operation.

Reviewed 14 years ago

I would change the main check-in screen to exclude the list of members and their check-in numbers. We operate a busy 24hr facility and the check in desk is often not occupied by a staff member.

Pros

Club sentry allows us to keep up to date and accurate account for all of our memebers. The biggest benefit is that the computer tells people when they are expried so we don't have to have the "awkward" conversation about the fact that they need to renew. Instead they come to us with the money out ready to renew. The support is second to none. Whenever we have a problem, I send out an email and Scott or Cassie answers back almost instantly. Club sentry is paramount to our gym operation. I love how I can use the reports features to track memberships, sales and other important data.

Cons

It requires a second work station to operate. It slightly slows down the time it takes to sign up a new member.

Buz 3 club installs

Reviewed 2 years ago

Very positive, I have installed Buz at 3 clubs >>> a yacht club, a golf & curling club and a golf club. All experiences have been positive. At all clubs I implemented the Buz Club Management with member management & GL along with PoS systems and website.

Pros

Very user friendly with excellent drill-down capabilities when setting up reports and dashboards. Very quick access to member information, GL account detail, supplier detail etc. Buz comes with many reports and dashboards and if there is something you want that is not available just ask the Buz team and they will accommodate you.

Cons

Some of the PoS processing could have a step or two less.

Long Time User of Buz Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

The team at Buz provides great support and are often adding new features based on our feedback. We just started a website redesign with Buz Software and are so excited to see the final result. We are also looking forward to all the new features they are bringing to the table including improved reporting capabilities.

Pros

We’ve been using Buz Software since 2011. Buz has helped us grow our club, particularly on the F&B side. Buz Club Manager handles our membership, accounting, and point of sale for our restaurant and fuel dock. Buz Web Communicator runs our website, event (regatta) registration, member account statements, and profile changes. It’s great that the website and back office sync with each other automatically!

Cons

The software is designed primarily for the Golf industry. We are a Yacht Club, so sometimes the features don't match up exactly as we would like. We are hoping that will change over time.

Don’t look past Buz

Reviewed 3 years ago

Easy to use and easy to train new personal.

Pros

I have worked with many management systems, and Buz is by far the easiest and most reliable. Buz 's various reports are easy to customize to my Club.

Cons

I am sure there are a few minor items that come up every once in a while but a phone call or a support ticket usually fixes the issue.

Buz Club Manager

Great Club Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have had a wonderful experience with the software from the moment we decided to switch, implementation and through using the software on a daily basis.

Pros

Buz Club Manager is extremely easy to use and navigate. It is also very flexible for reporting purposes, they can create any report you would want or need and make it available to export to Excel, if not already part of the suite of reports.

Cons

The fixed asset module is not what I am accustomed to regarding the information it requests and how depreciation is calculated.

Vendor response

Our clients continue to be an important part of our development process. Cindy was able to share with us the need for departmental fixed asset reporting, which we had not considered previously. Her input is much appreciated and has been shared with our team.
