Linda Kay

Overall, it is a good program for businesses who want to manage their own website and database.

2015-03-31

These are my suggestions: 1) Provide ways for drop-in students to register for single classes, 2) show attendance and makeups for individual students under their account, 3) provide a drop down menu to choose from multiple enrollment confirmation templates, 4) link financials directly to Quickbooks, 5) resize photos easier, 6) provide tracking options for recital, i.e., participation, measurements, costumes, songs, etc 7) provide better training/help on how to create html emails, or maybe even have a newsletter template in which we "fill in the blanks" with text and pictures.

Best Decision I Made for My Business!

2017-03-01

I have owned and operated a music studio for 12 years now. My studio has grown over the years and by needs have also grown. I switched to MainStreetSites about a year ago, and it has been the best decision for my business. Their customer service is exceptional, the features are always being updated and the team is very responsive to meeting the needs of their clients. The learning curve for adapting to the new system was intense, but they were there every step of the way and are always available to new questions my email or phone. Exceptional and I highly recommend!

Pros

Definitely the batch payment process, the tax receipts being emailed to each account individually by year, the email messaging system... lots!

Cons

I struggle a bit with the vast abilities of the system, but any time I need help the customer service is exceptional.

Great software solution with even better customer support!

2018-05-03

Pros

Very easy to integrate into our business website, easy for customers to use, easy to update and roll forward classes.

Cons

I would love to see a way to track student skills built into the software somehow, but overall this is the best software that we've used for managing our swim school and we tried numerous options prior purchasing MainStreet Sites.

Super easy to navigate and a simplistic product to learn.

2018-05-09

The screens are easy to navigate.

Pros

I used this at a prior job and it was really an efficient product. It made our day to day business run incredibly smooth.

Cons

There is nothing negative to say about the product. It made my job enjoyable because I knew that my day was going to be easy.

I have been using MainStreetSites Music Together Templates for the past 3 years and love them!

2015-10-13

I left the site for another company only because I thought that the templates at the time were prettier and the other company said that they could provide amazing upgraded functionality that MainStreetSites honestly said would take them more time to create.

wasn't good fit for us

2015-05-28

In out case it means hundreds of classes instead of 20 classes with many scheduled. Drop-in classes don't really supported (only as events).

My business has grown because of your excellent product, the ease of use of the registration process for my customers, the schedule, makeup and demo scheduler, that makes my business seem like it runs itself.

Great software for a great price!

2015-04-01

I've found it very helpful to help me get organize with my students, classes and monthly tuition. Easy to use, once you get the hang of it, but their support staff is amazing and will help you figure it all out!

We love MainStreetSites

2015-03-10

When we were up and running with MainStreetSites and their back office it felt like we had hired a new employee, that's how much easier things worked for us.
