Software Implementation

We spent countless hours testing the many software options available to swim schools, so you don’t have to. Our expertise is in implementing class management, employee scheduling, and accounting software for new businesses and migrating existing businesses to superior solutions.

Swim School Management

We recommend iClassPro software for the management of your swim school, club or aquatic centre. Benefits of iClassPro include:

Easy to use interfaces for all back of house operations including customer management, new enrolments, and class changes.
Direct debit to streamline your payment collection and complete monthly billing in a few clicks.
Customer portal and mobile app allowing your customers to register for and manage their own enrolments, reducing the load on your admin team.
Built-in online store to sell your existing products and uniforms.

Our partnership with GRIT Swim provides Lane 4 clients with exclusive discounts on wholesale swimming goggles and accessories - perfect for using the iClassPro online store to effortlessly increase your revenue.

We will ensure your transition to iClassPro is seamless by:

Setting up your iClassPro software, customer portal, direct debit, and online store.
Transferring your current client database to iClassPro if applicable.
Providing terms and conditions and billing policies tailored to your business.
Writing custom email templates for all required functions including welcome email, enrolment confirmations, upcoming direct debit notification, and more.
Creating your classes, schedules, programs, level outlines, lane structures, and pricing and billing schedules.
Providing staff training sessions and video tutorials so that your team can learn and troubleshoot as they go.

To further enhance your client experience, ask us about our custom solutions such as an online new client assessment booking or self-assessment tool.

Employee Scheduling

We recommend Deputy employee scheduling software for businesses wanting to quickly and easily onboard, roster, and pay staff in minutes – saving hours in admin time each pay period.

In fact, one of our clients cut down their time spent preparing rosters by 80% and achieved a 10% reduction in their fortnightly wage costs.

Deputy also provides employees easy tools for checking in and out of shifts, swapping and dropping shifts, requesting leave, and communicating within the team.

We can assist your business by:

Setting up your Deputy software including shift templates, pay scales, employee profiles, locations, and business units.
Integrating Deputy with your accounting software for streamlined payroll, reporting and ATO compliance.
Providing staff training and video tutorials.

Accounting & Finance

Our preferred accounting software is Xero, which allows small businesses to reconcile their bank account and credit card transactions, process payroll, complete BAS statements, and more in a matter of minutes.

We can assist your business by:

Setting up your Xero software including linking bank feeds, creating your chart of accounts, syncing employees, and more.
Integrating Xero with your other systems (we recommend iClassPro and Deputy) for seamless data transfer.
Providing staff training and video tutorials.

We can also assist with financial matters including budgeting, reporting, and financial modelling. These tools will help you consolidate your current operations, accurately plan for the future and quickly assess the viability of expansion opportunities.
