"There is nothing more difficult...than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. (Niccolo Machiavelli)"
There was a time when people thought computers would create a paperless office. Nobody foresaw that it would be the office itself that could become surplus to requirements. For many people, it is now entirely possible for the office to be wherever they and their laptop happen to be. That’s great news for busy professionals on the move, as many personal trainers are much of the time.
Having all your data in one place is half the battle for mobile workers. An online management system completes the picture. Online management systems allow you to access and manage all your data from within a single program that is tailored specifically to the needs of your business – anywhere, anytime.
An online management system is quite simply a one-stop shop. It allows on the spot access to your records that enhances your efficiency and saves you time. For personal trainers, Gympro is your admin central, making it easier and faster to handle your administration, wherever you are and as the need arises, instead of waiting to get back to the office. That means you’re less likely to forget things or get behind.
Dedicated software such as the Gympro online management system eliminates the need to run and access several different programs in parallel. Instead of switching between spreadsheets, word processors and email programs, online management software integrates these functions into one easy-to-use package. It means that you don’t waste effort duplicating tasks. For example, you can email information or compile reports at the touch of a button – no running sub-programs, searching or cut-and-pasting information from elsewhere.
As long as you have internet access, Gympro allows you to update client’s workout schedules, appointments and your notes as you go along. (Gympro’s editable workout creation function is one of its many great features). If you’ve become accustomed to running your business with a cell phone stuck to your ear, then an online system is a cheaper and ultimately more efficient way to coordinate your business activities and liaise with clients. Most importantly, it means you can spend your time focussing on your clients’ workouts and developing your business.
Because Gympro management system is online, you’re never far from your data. You may carry a laptop enabled for internet access with you. If not, your schedule and client information is never further away than the nearest computer.
A big plus is that you can’t lose your data. The one disadvantage of laptops is that they are easily mislaid, left behind or even stolen. If data security is an issue for you and your clients, you might not want to keep client details on your laptop. If so, an online system is the answer, since the data is held on secure servers that only you can access.
If you run an internet search for ‘online management system’ you’ll discover that just about every kind of business today has its own customized, management software system. The reason is simple: they make life easier for busy people and especially those working in multiple locations. You can try out Gympro alongside your existing system and see for yourself how it gives you even more freedom from the office.
