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.

I truly like the look and generally speaking capacity of the product. It would be extraordinary if the schedule connected to the schedule I utilize day by day (Google schedule). Likewise, on the "rundown of classes" page, it is ideal to see the classes recorded arranged by the times of the week.

Pros

I began utilizing this since I required my studio to have the option to take robotized installments every month. This has saved me a great deal of time!

Cons

The schedule... I use Google schedules on my cell phone and am essentially keeping two separate schedules at this moment. Couldn't want anything more than to have these connected.

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 is a very small company, with inexperienced developers. I would recommend using a different software.

Pros

They do have a portal available, so it is nice that our dancers are able to cancel membership without having to reach out to us.

Cons

TERRIBLE class management - cannot see a holistic view of the class (such as how often has this student attended and are there any future make-ups/trials in the future)
Awful User Experience - Everything is multiple clicks to do simple tasks, I am pretty sure they don't have a UX designer that actually reviews the customer experience.
Worst Reporting I have ever seen in a product - mismatched data and they don't give you full access to the data you need.

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 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.
