What’s the one thing that ticks away constantly, and we feel we don’t have any control over it?
Wouldn’t it be great if you had more time to grow your leisure business, to plan for increased revenue, generate greater cost efficiencies, focus on staff development, and give better customer service?
At First Sports, we developed – and continue to develop - our software specifically for leisure operators, and it’s designed by them too! Having worked for decades with some of the most recognised brands in sport - The FA, Wimbledon, England Netball, and the RFU - we’ve experienced and overcome a lot of challenges. By using this experience, you’ll find our total management solution has in-built features, specifically designed to save time.
Managing tasks is one of the most time-consuming aspects of running a leisure business. Organising when things need to be done, then checking that they have been done can be time-consuming, tedious, and repetitive. With First Sports streamlined workflows, you can create and assign tasks to the team, generate alarms and reminders, track progress, and even automate repetitive tasks. This includes a resource scheduler to ensure allocation of the right people and physical resources for your centre, studio classes, or gym activities.
Time to take stock
Critical to growing a leisure retail offer is understanding and reacting quickly to emerging trends and avoiding running out of stock on popular lines. Our software does this seamlessly, alerting you to reorder and highlighting any emerging popular lines.
Time to communicate
Operators are so often busy operating the business, that they forget to communicate. It’s not unusual to find that operators only communicate when the chips are down. It’s harder – and far costlier – to find new customers than it is to retain the ones you have. With First Sports, you can keep in touch with them, automate membership renewals, highlight special offers, promote new classes or even run satisfaction surveys, all at the touch of a button. Make sure you’re on your customer’s journey with them. Keep them loyal.
Time to pay
Revenue is the lifeblood of any business, and at First Sports we keep that flowing in, by providing dependable automated payment collections. In addition to direct debits, First Sports provide flexible payment solutions for cash, bank cards, direct debits, cashless member accounts, and wallet apps such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. Whether your guests and participants are onsite or online we offer one integrated payment solution for leisure centres, gyms, and sports clubs.
Reporting in record time
Facts and stats are any leisure operators friends! With some systems and processes, they can be incredibly difficult to extract, and unreliable to interpret. Not with First Sports. You can access data and extract it in every configuration at the touch of a button, from wherever you’re operating, via your smartphone. No more sticking a finger in the air, base your decisions on the information at hand.
