Jackrabbit Dance Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Jackrabbit Dance's features:

Ken McAleese

Great function - needs some UI tweaking and modern tools

2018-04-09

Pros

Jack Rabbit has just about every functionality that we were looking for as a Dance Studio - from costumes to online scheduling and registration, it makes the entire process very easy!

Cons

UI is outdated looking - would love to have an app that we could run on an iPad for attendance or as a POS system.

We use the software to manage our dance studio and have 80-100 families.

2017-06-29

Easy management of files.

Pros

Another feature we love is the parent portal! So easy to bill accounts and allow parents to pay.

Cons

The search feature is very specific and if you don't remember exactly how the class is titled, it won't pull up.

Software That Grows with Us!

2016-07-02

We are loving the staff portal and look forward to more additions like it.

Pros

Online attendance and staff communication.

Cons

Grades don't upgrade automatically. Limited room for note taking and the notes are "hidden" in tabs that are not seen at first.

Really need to have the ability to assign levels/skills by class type (Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, etc.) as students can have different levels. Would like to see levels rather than skills as not all studio tracks through skill, testing, or competition skills/levels. Let us attach items without dropbox. Assign individual emails to studio rather than noreply based to help avoid emails being tagged as spam.

Response from Jackrabbit Technologies


Hi, thank you for your review. To address your concerns with Jackrabbit, we are happy to share that our grade level upgrade has been enhanced. Our skills are also being added to the Staff Portal and will be released very soon. We'd love to talk to you more about the flexibility you'd like to see in reporting. Thanks for the feedback and the business!

We love Jackrabbit!

2016-07-04

For us, the absolute most-important feature that makes us continue to stay with Jackrabbit over any other software/company/etc is the customer service.

Pros

-Options for tracking both families and staff -The new Staff Portal is great, we're excited to implement it in the new season.

Cons

-The process to setup accepting payments for online registrations has been very time consuming (we're very-much looking forward to the day we can be done with it!)

The first time a logged on to Jackrabbit it was overwhelmed. I thought there was no way I could learn it all. But the resources & customer support made it really easy to learn. I'm so glad I didnt go to a more "basic" system to suit our business in the early stages. It would have made the transition to Jackrabbit so much more overwhelming now that we've grown.

We are constantly looking for ways to improve, so please let our support team know what frustrations you are having with setting up ePayments.

Jackrabbit Class is outstanding!!!! I've been a user since 2009.

2018-07-23

Jackrabbit helps me with online and in-person registration, scheduling, parent communication, accounts receivable, costume sizing and ordering plus a whole lot more.

Pros

JR is ALWAYS updating the user features based on user feedback through an "idea" button on the dashboard where we can share ideas we have about functionality that we'd like to see added to their already great service.

Cons

Currently, it's mainly a place to park your leads and inactive clients with an email feature. I'd like to see more CRM capabilities like automated drip emails etc.

Function and ease of mind

2017-03-27

The added value of things like online employee timeclock, attendance for members, mini Cramm, and apparel tracking/ordering lets you save $ from other things.

Pros

Online registration and employee timeclock

Cons

I wish that autopay ran automatically with zero interaction without me having to click "go" once a month.

Perfect timing! We will be releasing our new Parent Portal in the next couple months. This will be mobile friendly and much easier to use, the look and feel is much more modern. The function of linking payments and fees will be the same but hopefully it will be easier to understand in the new Parent Portal. It looks like your parents may be having trouble with some unlinked Payments/Fees, we recommend a Checkup Call help fix the issue. Here is a link to schedule your call: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=13122060&appointmentType=3253323

A single tool to manage student database, emails, and tuition transactions is a huge time saver.

2018-02-23

Time savings, better record keeping, better tuition collection.

Pros

In the past, we had separate databases for each purpose.

Cons

--Taking attendance is cumbersome, instructors can't see all of their classes.

Pros

Billing and automatic payments are the best.

JackRabbit is easy to use and assists immensely in organizing classes and students each season.

2017-07-04

Mass emailing to our families save us time and creating email lists. Also, being able to register dancers quickly and easily is great for saving time.

Pros

We like the ease of adding students to classes as well as dropping and transferring to other classes throughout the season.

Cons

It would be great to have an "add fees" button similar to the class details where we could put in a monthly fee once and then post it for multiple months by clicking one button.

We love JackRabbit, what a time saver!

2011-03-05

Going to online registration and automated tuition billing has not only increased our business and time for collecting tuition, but our students and parents love it too.

Pros

Quick and responsive customer/technical support Flexible and customizable for our needs Easy to use and navigate for our customers Reports are a time saver Web-based allows us to quickly edit, change, and run our business easily

Cons

This is not really a con, as it is a recommendation to truly maximize the features of this software, users should attend a training. So the only con is that the guided software training is only available at live locations a few times a year or you have to self-study by the manual. If the training was available by DVD (video) for people who cannot attend live it would be great.

Since we began using jackrabbit, you customer retention has doubled. Jackrabbit is awesome!

2017-07-06

Once the skills buttons were implemented next to the attendance our staff had a much easier time ensuring that skills were assessed in a timely manner.

Pros

We also love the new skills and attendance tabs.

Cons

It can take an hour to figure out where to look for certain buttons on the back end. As we gain more students, my staff has to act more quickly. Waiting for help or searching for the correct button can be frustrating. This is especially the case when we are working on setting up skill sets.

MAKES MY JOB EASIER AND MAKES THE CUSTOMERS REALIZE IT.

Pros

I like being able to look at the transactions and how each payment was applied.

Cons

I never had to removed a monthly tuition fee because someone paid in advance of the next month to be billed. Each time I forget to remove this fee, I get a complaint that the customer was duplicate billed for the new month.
