The main benefit of MindBody online business management software is that it offers tools to help wellness providers manage their clients and their businesses. It uses a combination of cloud-based software, apps and hardware such as card readers and receipt printers.
MindBody is aimed at both individuals, such as personal trainers or hairdressers, and larger organizations such as gyms and spas. It is a combination of a client database, appointment book, payment tracker, accounting software and marketing tools. One advantage of the system is that both clients and businesses can check their schedules and appointments online and see them updated in real time.
Client and payment data can be analyzed and used to generate reports about sales growth and retention rates. A useful feature is that some processes can be automated such as sending bills, reminders and newsletters. There is also the opportunity to set up loyalty programs and special offers for clients.
