Integrated Software Systems9 February 2009
Online management systems are great for any business. The more dimensions there are to your operation, the more these custom-designed software systems come into their own. Managing your data from one platform is especially important if you deal with multiple types of data, as personal trainers often do. Unless you enjoy administration, it makes sense to use a program that takes a variety of complicated management chores and tedious tasks out of the equation.
Tracking and monitoring workout and nutrition regimens, maintaining appointments and schedules, analyzing data, compiling progress reports and interacting with clients are par for the course for most personal trainers. Depending on the profile of your business and the nature of your client base, itís very likely that youíll have even more tasks than this. Tracking the diverse programs and custom workouts youíve developed for individual clients can be time-consuming if you donít have all the information you need at your fingertips. And, the more clients you have, the more the administration burden multiplies. Thatís the price of success Ė but donít pay more than you have to!
Integrated software systems are standard business administration tools today. The old days where you did one thing in Word, another in Excel, and still needed a separate program to work with graphics is over. Those programs were designed to be compatible but still required you to do the importing of data and many other tasks yourself. An integrated management software system allows for automation of many tasks, eliminates problems of program compatibility and takes business software to the next level.
Customised management systems like Gympro are designed by people who know what your business entails, and what you need your computer program to do for you. That alone can save you much effort. You donít have to wade through menus and features youíll never use, customizing your software to your requirements. Most of that setting-up is done for you before you even start.
Computers have long been about multi-tasking. Integrated software reduces the number of tasks you have to do yourself and the amount of time it takes to do them. Even better, thereís less room for human error. To give one example: in an integrated software system the program will select the most up-to-date data files automatically, without you having to manually find and flag them. One of the top features of integrated software packages is that the left hand knows what the right hand is doing. The software knows which files belong together because it links and cross-references your different data components for you.
A good online management system is also flexible, allowing integration of more features, as the need arises. Gympro continually updates and upgrades its services.
Another great advantage of integrated software systems is that theyíre user-friendly. Ideally, you and your clients want an instant overview of their profile(s). Spreadsheet and database programs canít easily deliver that. Despite their massive computing power (more then youíre likely to need), theyíre not user-friendly.
Because the different facets of the Gympro online management program work together, it makes generating reports in a visually appealing format fast and simple. Gympro provides clients with their data in graphic form, all with a couple of clicks. Thatís something youíll find hard to achieve with a standard spreadsheet. The integrated nature of online management system accommodates the needs of users with different needs.
An integrated management system is more than the sum of its parts. Once youíve switched, the chances are high that you wonít look back.
