Depending on your studio size and needs, PocketSuite might be the answer for you. You can schedule classes online (packages, drop-ins, subscriptions), message with prospects and clients, take payments, scan cards, and payout teachers. It’s a completely mobile app and takes out all the complexity compared to Mindbody (I’ve set it up before).
There’s no studio laptop needed, nor going back to your desk to invoice and wrestle with setting up class schedules. It scan cards for new customers using the camera so no hookup a reader.
There’s a great revenue dashboard to see your earnings, and all your data can be exported to run deeper analysis on everything.
Also, for marketing, there’s built-in features for targeted messaging for clients that have booked a specific class or those who haven’t seen you in a while.
You’ll also get a business phone number automatically assigned so you won’t need to give up your personal number.
Instructors can be assigned classes and have access to everything they need on their own phone to run it, and the owner has oversight over everything.
I believe you can get a free 30-day trial and it’s way cheaper than Mindbody and there’s also a free version. https://pocketsuite.io
