Overall, it does what we need well and with a simple, clean interface.

It has good tracking for attendance, bill paying, lets us freeze clients when needed.

Perfect for our dojo

2019-01-29

I have had ZERO problems with the back-end payment system or student management.

Pros

And it built our front landing page AND student portal all at the same time.

Cons

The template for the website is fixed with little customization aside from pictures. The schedule only shows one week at a time.

An up and coming top notch tool for martial arts schools

2020-07-26

So far so great! Very few complaints/frustrations from members during transition as opposed to previous softwares used like zenplanner etc... where every step was met with crashing apps and the like. Here we have a program that works right in every smartphone/computer’s browser. Just log in and access everything, including remote training videos, which right now are crucial. Would love to see some more features surrounding support for remote training, but considering the relative “newness” of the product and how great everything else has been for myself and my students - a solid A-!

Pros

Easy setup (BIG) Automated Payment Processing Easy “on the fly” changes Beautiful schedule for website Booking and checkins Built in waivers/agreements/forms Developer is constantly listening to users and giving feedback as to why software functions the way it does or when features will be ready and DELIVERS

Cons

Lack of robust reporting Lack of configurable signup menu (users see a long list that you can’t organize by category, yet) A lot of functionality seems to leverage and almost depend on you using the built-in website builder, so if you have your own website, it might feel limiting

Great program!

2019-04-20

The software is easy to use and the website is very simple to edit, especially for someone like me who is NOT very savvy when it comes to things like this! 

Pros

It allows me to focus on teaching, and I don't have to stop class to take payments.

Cons

I kept getting spam messages in my lead form, now that Captcha has been added that is no longer a problem!

Makes My Life So Much Easier

2020-01-30

With the last management software I was using I had to spend hours on the phone and honestly just dreaded going in to the gym to work on the computer.

Pros

I like the simplicity of running attendance and financial reports.

Cons

The only one thing I have found that I have had trouble with is when I search for a member if they are frozen their name doesn't come up in the search. I have to go to the frozen tab to find them.

Best decision ever

2019-08-25

Couldn't run a proper martial arts business without this. Great software at reasonable prices.

Pros

Suited to remote management of school.

Cons

Has some kinks, but development team sorts it out really quick. So it's not really a con. Just an indication of a work in progress that's already quite top notch.

Great support

2019-04-21

We are a university club, with 30-40 members. Just enough members to justify a membership system but not enough to afford the big names. We are a martial art club, so I look at 50+ different options and try ~10 that were affordable. MAOnRails was in the top 3, I was sold by the support that was absolutely, and still is, great. Very fast response to explain, correct or enhance. I can only recommend this software. It is not the cheapest but far from the more expensive. Definitely worth the money!

Pros

- Best support ever - Quick bug & features turnaround, even when paying the lowest plan - All features requests are considered and thought through - Payment integration with square and stripe - kiosk mode for in gym/dojo check-in - manager and members interface to allow members to see own membership, pay invoices, etc - integrated document management for waiver and T&Cs Many other features, I suggest you to do the free trial

Cons

It is really a great software, any cons I came across was swiftly corrected/updated by the great team behind the software. There hasn't been any request/features that where dismissed by the team so I want to say no cons!

Transformed our Club

2019-09-10

For our club to continue to grow and provide the type of service our students deserve we did some extensive research of automated systems and opted for Manonrails as we found it to be a feature rich system which not only manages the basics very well but also allows you to monitor trends and provides a variety of metrics on the clubs performance and tools to help you grow the club.

Pros

Feature rich... Dashboard providing a snapshot of key metrics...

Cons

Nil - anytime we have identified a new feature that would benefit our club they have modified they system to add the desired feature.

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.

Cons

The only invoicing available is reoccurring would like to see one time invoicing for products or tests.

Martial Arts on Rails Review

2019-09-01

Pros

Simple interface Most needed features Quick turnaround for bug fixes Open to suggestions for new features

Cons

Unable to work directly with back-end data (though this is understandable), more export options would help here though Would prefer a self hosted open source solution if one were available with comparable feature set Self-sign-in when multiple classes available feels less intuitive than other processes

Excellent choice for member management

2019-07-24

Pros

The setup is pretty simple and easily integrates with payment software.

No feature to allow for more than one version of a waiver to be used at the same time or to include a waiver and a membership agreement during the sign up process.

Why MaonRails is the best solution for a Martial Arts Studio

2020-02-10

As a martial arts studio owner you NEED a billing system, MAonRails is built specifically with martial arts studios in mind (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is my discipline) which is important.

Pros

I have actually used a number of products and competitors in the past, and I feel the customer service is top notch, ease of use and the right features are in place.

Cons

I haven't used the offered website as I already had my own.

Slick looking and easy to use

2019-07-08

That being said, I had a lot of questions when I started using it, but mostly related to trying to get it to do things that it wasn't designed to do.

Pros

The interface is sharp, and simple to navigate and find what you're looking for.

Cons

The interface isn't very customizable (the color scheme and icons).

Review

2020-03-04

Pros

Intuitive design, it took almost no effort to get up and running.

Cons

For example, if you create a dedicated user for front desk mode and then don’t give that user member permissions, new members can sign up through front desk mode but can’t add their billing information.

Simple and User Friendly

2020-09-03

Onboarding was easy, tutorial videos/FAQ was helpful, but it was already easy to navigate prior to even watching them.

Pros

I really enjoy the simplicity of setting my academy up on the software, the positive feedback from my students who use this for class reservations, and how easy it is to navigate day to day operations.

Cons

I think it would be great if there was a feature within the software to interact with members where they would be notified if an admin user posted something under the content section or even a community board where we can also post updates.

Straight Blast Gym Niagara Loves MAO

2020-07-31

Just a few days into getting the system operational for my gym I had many students message me saying they loved it, and how slick it looked. MAO is going to help me be even more personal with my students, and little details will no longer slip between the cracks.

Pros

I like how easy it is for my students to pre-book their classes, the dashboard is awesome showing me who is attending for the day's sessions, and the emailing system is one of my most liked features.

Cons

Any problem I thought I had with the program was actually with me. When I needed help, I messaged [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and every time he answered me back immediately. I have nothing but positives with MAO.
