Customer Service was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I love how the site was very user friendly.

LM

Lynn M.

We love it and recommend it to anyone looking for a martial arts software solution. Their customer service is fantastic (quick and reliable!).

MH

Michael H.

It has made everything so easy and their client service is top notch. As a result we can focus on our most important asset, our students.

JS

John S.

Pros

Definitely would recommend giving it a try. Great customer service, great website and amazing tool to keep ranks, dates, payments, attendance and schedules organized.

AL

Angela L.

Like the family account feature, belt ranks are easy to create, add, and modify. Customer Service is fantastic, quick answers and always willing to help.

LA

Leigh-Ann M.

Super easy to use, it works, and if you have a question they are very responsive.

JT

James T.

Cons

Also, if there is a problem, and there rarely is, their service people will be quick to pin it on user error. Like I said, there is rarely an issue.

DC

David C.

Before I started using Kicksite, it was hard to stay organized and it took countless hours of my time.

JR

John R.

Inventory (not sure if it's a user error or lack of education on use) - would like a order list once inventory levels reach a set amount.

AP

Annette P.

Cons

Overall there wasn't anything that I can say was bad.

WH

William H.

The attendance check-in is a bit confusing when you have multiple classes running.

Prior to using Martial Arts On Rails we operated a manual system and as a consequence we were losing track of payments, grading, etc.

Switching from Kicksite to Martial Arts On Rails

Reviewed 3 years ago

So far very impressed would recommend people giving this software a chance.

Pros

Website integration is awesome, I use square for my business and as far as I know this is the only software that integrates square into there system. The cost compared to kicksite is better as compared per student.

Cons

The only invoicing available is reoccurring would like to see one time invoicing for products or tests. Also would like to see more done with the ranking, maybe being able to put in requirements so to be able to track students progress also maybe a way to advance a testing group with a single click.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review Michael! I'm glad you found our software useful. Worth noting that we definitely offer one-time charges and product sales, if you need help with using those features please get in touch and we'd be happy to help you out!
