About ClassBug

ClassBug is a user-friendly class management software for venues such as dance and yoga studios, martial art dojos, and parks and recreation centers. Users can manage and schedule classes, offer online registration and payments, and view various types of reports.

ClassBug’s web store is quick to setup and offers fully automated online registration and sales. The point of sale (POS) process includes sales options such as discounts and coupon codes, gift cards/store credit, requisite classes, memberships and waiting lists.

Users can manage and add classes to a color-coded schedule, as well as track instructors and students with automated reports and attendance sheets. Using the instructor reports, users can see all work history for managing payroll, as well as view upcoming schedules for timetable planning. Student reports keep track of student activity such as missed classes with date information. The attendance reports automatically generate attendance sheets ready for printing, or for using within the solution.

ClassBug is web-based; so users do everything right in the browser, and can login via smartphones and tablets with access to the internet. The software has automatic updates, so users will always stay up-to-date with the latest version of ClassBug. Upgrading to the professional version includes 3 unique user logins that can be used by managers, receptionists and instructors, at the same time.

We have been using classbug for approximately 6 months. We are extremely happy with this program. In the beginning we had a few questions on how to use it. We sent an email message and we were immediately contacted by Matt Conway who would call and walk us through each issue we had and help us resolve our questions. I would highly recommend Classbug it is user friendly. I have to say in a world of technology where it can be difficult to actually speak to someone it was and is refreshing to know that at anytime we need more answers Matt is ready and willing to help!

This online software has many amazing features that has made registering online for classes a breeze for our customers and therefore gets us paid faster. The online store that was very easy to set up allows our customers to make purchases and automatically applies personal settings that our business has previously set up like automatic discounts, registration fees, pre-requisite classes, automatic payment plans. The key take away with this program is everything is automated so a customer is enrolled properly online with no need for staff to do any extra work...the customer does all the work when they register online! Customers can easily log into their account to manage their stored credit card information, as well as see a history of past purchases and current classes enrolled. As customers register for classes, the student is added to the roster allowing us to see real time information on how our classes are filling. Sending an email to a specific class has never been easier! Our teachers can manage class attendance easily and mark reasons for absences. Navigating through classbug is very user friendly for both customers and staff. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking to make their registration more streamlined and convenient.

I am still learning my way around classbug but that is not a fault of the software, that is a fault of my computer skills. I did choose this software because it seems simple enough for a guy like me to understand. I have tried other software products that were more expensive and out of my league for understanding how to work with them.
Technical support can be an issue with Classbug if you are not free during the day. This is one problem that I run into as I do so much of my book keeping after I close my studio at night.

I have worked on other online software for our dance studio but ClassBug is much easier to use. You don't need a training program to use it. The support staff is fantastic to work with. When ever I have a question or suggestion, he always comes up with the answer in a very timely manner. Would definely recommend it to other studios.

I really like the look and overall function of the software. It would be great if the calendar linked to the calendar I use daily (Google calendar). Also, on the "list of classes" page, it would be nice to see the classes listed in order of the days of the week.

Pros

I started using this because I needed my studio to be able to take automated payments each month. This has saved me a lot of time!

Cons

The calendar... I use Google calendars on my smartphone and am basically maintaining two separate calendars right now. Would love to have these linked.
