Kicksite Overview

What is Kicksite?

Kicksite is a martial arts school management software designed to help users streamline management workflows and engage students. Users can manage their martial arts school with attendance tracking, tuition collection, a video library, communication management, lead management, rank promotion, and social media management tools. Kicksite also features an activity dashboard and a self-service portal for students.

Kicksite enables students to sign in to classes with a simple check-in service. Once signed in, students can immediately view attendance records and any awards received for making attendance a priority. Communication tools such as automated emails, scheduled announcements and reminders ensure students stay connected to school activity outside of class time. Users can also organize daily, weekly or monthly messages using the communications calendar.

With Kicksite’s tuition collection functionality, users can record in-house payments, set up recurring invoices and track inventory items. By connecting to Kicksite’s preferred merchant account provider, Solupay, users can process one-time payments, manage recurring billing and store Automated Clearing House (ACH) and credit card information securely. Users can create lead campaigns with custom submission forms, confirmation pages, and follow-up emails to capture and nurture new leads directly from their school’s website.

Users can create and track events in order to manage rank promotion after belt testing. Kicksite links with Facebook and Twitter accounts to facilitate social media exposure. From Kicksite’s dashboard, users can monitor critical metrics and view data at-a-glance. The self-service portal allows students to monitor their own progress, access videos and documents, and register for events.

Kicksite Is Almost As Essential As Our Mats!

The staff at Kicksite is amazing, in addition to their software. They have thought of everything!

Continually Growing with Kicksite

As a proud user of Kicksite for seven years, I am continually amazed that the innovative approach they take to ensure my success as a school owner and operator. Their continued development of new tools and updates over the past decade have allowed my business to continually grow and thrive.

Anytime I have a challenge, the Kicksite staff is quick to address it and provide solutions or workarounds.

When our country and our industry was hit with the challenge of Covid 19, Kicksite was quick to offer timely, positive, and vital support for school owners, encouraging them to utilize online tools and other unique approaches to actively engage with their students and families during the quarantine.

Now as our country re-opens, Kicksite remains on the front lines providing outstanding informational tools, webinars, and experts in various fields to consult and help school owners safely get back in action again.

My sincere thanks to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and the entire Kicksite Team for your continued leadership and passion for excellence. Keep up the great work!

Kicksite Your School Into The Future!

Do your students interact outside of the dojang? With Kicksite, our students manage their own user accounts, stay up to date on events and communication, have curriculum videos and documents at their fingertips, and share their victories on their Facebook page. It saves our staff time and that saves our schools money because our students can update their contact information and use Kicksite 24/7 from anywhere in the world...and so can our staff! Facebook has become the most efficient advertising platform to market any business using FREE digital word of mouth marketing. There is no better way to advertise and Kicksite integrates Facebook by letting our students proudly post their rank promotions on their timeline automatically. We were hesitant to switch our 1100 students fearing a data transfer nightmare, but Kicksite's professional and knowledgeable staff made it as seemless as possible. And when we have an issue or suggestion to improve or add a feature, Kicksite listens! They offer solutions or work to create one. The staff of Kicksite are amazing, fast, respectful, and resolute! You will never contact them multiple times for an unaddressed, unresolved issue or an unreturned phone call. They will take the time to train your staff, share video tutorials, and walk you through your transfer to Kicksite. They are not just Kicksite savvy, they are also school owners and offer ingenious solutions to improve our schools... even ideas unrelated to Kicksite. There is a very minor con for schools with multiple locations and large student populations. It can be tedious to manage attendance for students who train at multiple locations and to send school-wide announcements to all locations since each of our locations have their own separate Kicksite account. Our staff have to ensure they stay on top of it and we copy-paste announcements. We would love to see a newsletter template feature similar to Mail Chimp or Constant Contact that can be sent to all of our Kicksite accounts at once...hint, hint! But it is a small issue compared to the many features that simplify, connect, and improve our relationship with our students both in and outside of the dojang. Overall, Kicksite is user-friendly, interactive, and always growing with improvements well beyond what other school management systems offer with EXCEPTIONAL and speedy customer service. Thanks to all of the staff at Kicksite!

Pros

Kicksite automates everything, intuitively!

Cons

I wish people could join online as a recurring billing member. At last check, they can sign up and pay for trial memberships, classes and seminars.

Maggie (and ALL staff) have been extremely attentive and professional especially at times when I was not my best self.

Pros

Integration.

Cons

Inventory (not sure if it's a user error or lack of education on use) - would like a order list once inventory levels reach a set amount.
Email - after reviewing the tutorial, I am able to create more aesthetically pleasing emails, however, going through the time and effort of uploading pics into Flickr is a pain.
ATA communication link. Not sure entry of testing results is efficient yet. I will try to use it again after August 26 testing, however, a video tutorial would be nice. I have to submit a Tiger testing, then ask headquarters to hold before shipping certificates, then submit a MAK and Adult testing. I don't see a way to do that at kicksite.
Website Dojo communication link. I am getting leads from my website and having to enter them separately into kicksite. I'd like them to communicate.

Collections are so much easier with the automated billing system in place.

Pros

We have been using this software for tracking our student attendances, scheduling events such as testing, billing and collecting monthly dues, etc. It works beautifully and if we need customer support for understanding a feature we haven't used, the staff at Kicksite responds quickly and always walk us through any questions or training. We also got lots of free training when we initially signed up for the service. Can't stop talking about much easier my job as co-owner is since we got Kicksite!

Cons

We have zero complaints and love this software for it's ease of use. It's perfect for a martial art's school!
