ITs easy, and usefull, your experience will make you feel better than other options. This software is friendly as you.

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

Most other companies have billing "included" and a much higher price. I don't need billing software, so it would have been a waste to pay more money per month for a feature I'm not using.

Poor user interface or rather it should be less techy.

DW

Inability to maintain belt progression. I - received blue belt 6/1, 1st stripe was received on 7/1 etc.

Streamlined and easy to use

Reviewed 8 months ago

We don't know how we survived before kicksite! Now we're streamlined, billing is a breeze, mass emails are a breeze, and we have more time to focus on the students themselves. Improvements are being made constantly to make the program more intuitive, and we appreciate that our suggestions are used as the program is upgraded. Students love the access to their own account and our document and video library! Monthly renewals used to take me a couple days to finalize, email, wait for a reply, and now they're all done and emailed in less than an hour and members can sign electronically. Kicksite has made our school's administrative duties so easy!

Pros

We used to have multiple sources of information to manage student memberships, attendance and billing. Kicksite puts them all in one platform, which makes things so much easier to manage. No more entering the same information over and over, managing multiple email lists, etc. We've reduced our paper files to virtually nothing since everything is contained right in a student's kicksite account.

Cons

It's tough to find something that we don't like-there are a few quirks that we had to get used to, such as event invitations (belt testings, tournaments, etc.) can only be sent to one email address and not multiples.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for the positive review, Sue. It really makes our day to hear the success you've been having with Kicksite! We can't wait to see your school continue to grow!

Great basic front desk software!

Reviewed 8 years ago

Kicksite is fantastic for keeping attendance and scheduling events, such as belt testing. Belt testing has never been easier for me. The automated messaging feature is also an amazing time saver. I wish Kicksite offered statistical records and analysis and the attendance reports are useless. As a school owner I need to get attendance reports by individuals and per class not for the entire day. 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. I've used Kicksite for 3 years and have only had issues 3 or 4 times, but each time it was somehow my fault or my clients'. That is frustrating.

Thank you for your openness Mr. Church. We have embraced this review process not only as a way for prospective schools to get real feedback on Kicksite, but also as a way for us to receive honest comments on ways we can improve. Thank you. We take great pride on our customer service. While you've only had a few challenges in your 3 years of service, we will do everything we can to identify what prompted any error that you experience. While these are often difficult to pinpoint, we will do our best and value your input. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support Mr. Church! Sincerely, The Kicksite Team

My Caterham review of the Kicksite software

Reviewed 7 months ago

Kicksite has truly been a godsend. I love the fact that it does so much on its own. My favorite thing is how easy it is to create reports for staff and for the clients, as well. I also love how it tracks the clients progress and changes in belt color. A definite must to have in your business.

Pros

Kicksite has been a pleasure to use. They have great tools in the software, as well as the communications, the merchant services and reports... they all are awesome. What I like the most is the client section of the software. The second a prospect comes into the software through either the website or manually through your staff, as a prospect, they are already in software and you can create an appointment for when they want to come in and try out your classes. And from there, you can turn a prospect into a student. Basically, its very easy and saves us a lot of time in the office.

Cons

Not too much that I don't like. I'm sure as time goes on, there will be things I'd like to improve personally. But I have no complaints at this time.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review, we appreciate it! We are always working hard to improve our user experience and make it even easier for our users!

We love Kicksite! It has made running our taekwondo school so much easier and more efficiently and helps us keep all of our record keeping in one place. The Customer Service is impeccable. They are always more than happy to help maneuver Kicksite and familiarize me with options. It has been an easy transition moving from paper book keeping to electronic, and communication has been simplified. Preparation for testing is now incredibly easy, with belt ordering, sizes, and student eligibility in a glance.
