Pros

Ve been very happy with JR in general, the customer service team is very responsive and overall a good value.
It is easy to navigate and always improving. They are constantly listening to users to better the software and help you find the best way to use it with your company.
I like how many features it ha. The ease of emailing certain families is awesome.

Pros

Cons

I dont know what I would dislike. They even have a Facebook group.
Not only was the manual work tedious, but it made makeups "personal" - ie if there was no/limited availability, it made our staff look like the bad guys.
I don’t like that emails can only be sent out 90 days in advance.

Simply Swim makes admin a breeze

Reviewed a year ago

Simply Swim has cut down on admin time for us and it has been easy to train new staff to use the system. Based on referals from other swim schools its the only system we looked at purchasing. I highly recommend Simply Swim

Pros

I love the user friendly features for my swim teachers and admin staff. We can access all the information we need on a daily, weekly or term basis. The features are updated regularly and the support from the team at Simply Swim and the facebook page is always fast and helpful. As an owner I can print financial and student reports and intergrate my operations with my accounting software as well.

Cons

That not all features are available in all packages. Not all the information in reports is easy to find

Best on the market swim school software

Reviewed a year ago

I am forever grateful I found Simply Swim. I was previously doing everything on spreadsheets and as my business grew to 40 or more students (now over 140 student) managing catch-up lessons manually was impossible. I was spending more administration time trying to give people something for free. Total insanity. Now I have Simply Swim. Easy to use, scalable, designed by [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who has grass roots skills in running swim schools so you know its an exceptional product built for us at the coalface of the LTS industry. Thank you K[SENSITIVE CONTENT],your amazing to have created this software.

Pros

The student timetable scheduling ease of use, SMS communications tailored at class level in attendance records in case of urgent communications regarding unscheduled closures, flexible communications in the campaigns feature to target specific clients, the parent portal for advising of student absences reduces my administration time significantly but most of all the software support is exceptional when you need advice on how to resolve a scenario.

Cons

I'm on the basic price plan and would love the parent portal to allow features such as student progress but I know this is available on another plan. What would be even more useful would be the ability for the parent to have an area on the portal to flag all of their available days/times for future terms. This would save a lot of administration when working out the timetable for the term ahead - Similar to a waitlist but recording term number, flag days ie: Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat,Sun, mornings and or afternoons. Currently I put that information in the "parent occupation" field on the family record.
