Hello Club Overview

Hello Club is a cloud-based club and membership management solution which offers a range of features for tracking your members, membership renewals, event management, facility bookings, finances and online payments, integration with access control hardware, and extensive reporting capabilities.

With Hello Club, you can manage both your members and casual players in a single solution. A self-service portal allows members to enrol and renew their memberships online, with a payment gateway integration for secure online payments. The membership renewal process is fully automated, with prompt reminders for expiring subscriptions or outstanding payments. Integrations with Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp allow you to sync your subscriber lists with one click, and you can create groups to directly send out messages to specific members.

Hello Club also offers an online booking system, which allows your members to book courts or other areas by themselves. You can configure booking restrictions based on peak hours, memberships, and roles, as well as enable waiting lists and booking reminders. Areas can also be blocked out for one-off, multi-day, or recurring events. Integration with access control systems enables full control of doors and court lights, allowing you to monitor access and usage remotely. You can also generate a range of reports on everything ranging from members, memberships, finances, court usage and more.

Prior to Hello Club - Our Trust life was a nightmare, trying to update spreadsheets and docs - a range of executive members all maintained their own separate information and we spent a lot of time seeking details from one another.
So we are a forever subscriber !!!!

Pros

The accessibility, as you can log on anywhere on multiple devices, the opportunity for our Executive Trustees - Trust Chairperson, Trust Secretary, Financial Administrator, to update information instantly and the transparency if offers our individual participants as they can access their information and in need amend contact details as required. This software is very affordable where some I looked at, the prices for a voluntary organisation were unrealistic. The telephone and/or email contact and support from Liat in particular when we were newbies was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble.

Cons

I do not have any cons - the speed at which Hello Club updates the capacities of the software is phenomenal, so in the instances that I have enquired about something - the developers have made it a feature virtually the following week. Added to that the enhancements that they come out with are just making it a "not to be without" component of any organisation that needs to manage their people.

The most important aspect for me is back up service and this simply cannot be faulted. Suggestions are taken seriously and frequently acted upon.

Pros

The fact that the end user gets funds transferred, courts booked and facility status instantly. This negates the need for third party intervention and creates higher customer satisfaction. The invoicing is very simple with built in controls and follow up. It is also very easy to use for all users.

Cons

I was being resistant to change but had no concerns about about the software and no negatives have arisen for me.

Response from Hello Club

Thanks so much for your review Trish! We're glad to hear you find our system easy to use and that despite initial resistance to change it has been a good experience for you. Do let us know if you need a hand with anything!

The Next Big Step for Bridge Clubs

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Pretty-much covered this in Pros above. We have integrated MailChimp, POLi, and Stripe with HelloClub. If we ran Xero we'd probably have that integrated too. We do a lot of communication with various groupings of members .. HelloClub will handle that. Our treasurer is a recently-retired professional accountant. The time he's spending on the job now that we have HelloClub would be about 10% of what he used to do.

Pros

The freedom it has allowed our members and our treasurer. It has always been the form at bridge clubs to put cash on the table to pay for each game you play. This can be from $3 to $10 depending on the club. Everybody has to scratch around for change before coming to bridge .Some clubs have voucher systems .. but you still have to FIND the blimmin' things. Collecting, counting, banking, and accounting for the cash can occupy someone for 3-4 hours a week. All that has now gone by the board!

Cons

Nothing, really. It does what it's supposed to do. People find it very easy to use. In fact, they don't even have to use it at all .. it just ticks away in the background. They just need to ensure there are funds in their account .. which they can do very easily from within HelloClub or in the ways they have always bought credit from the club. Very similar to NZ Toll Roads.

The system means less input from other staff so less cost.
It also means I have a better idea of what is happening and who is using the centre.

Pros

It is very user friendly and being web based means I can use it from my phone anywhere in the world.

Cons

The payment system. Banks are still advising their customers no to use POLi.

It would be good to have a page showing who has booked a month in advance like the old system.

Response from Hello Club

Hi Ewen, thank you for your review! We are g lad to hear you find the system user friendly and that it's saving you on time and costs.

As for the bookings, did you know we have a booking overview page which allows you to filter and see all upcoming bookings in a list? Let us know if you can't find it and we'll point you in the right direction.

Agreed that not everyone likes or recommends POLi, but unfortunately there is no other alternative payment system in New Zealand for account-to-account payments which has been developed by banks themselves.

We do have Stripe integration for credit/debit card payments, but unfortunately those payment processing fees are higher as you are no doubt aware.

Rest assured though that as soon as banks come up with an alternative solution we'll provide the integration as soon as possible!

The Hello Club software has brought our club into the 21st century. It gives members and volunteer administrators plenty of easy to use options - it is difficult to imagine the club operating without the system now.

Pros

Easy to use and it serves our club's needs perfectly.

Cons

There's nothing to not like. It used to be a bit cumbersome to scroll through every member's names in alphabetical order when in the finance section but that problem was solved by an update very soon after I raised the issue.

Benefits

An automated membership renewal process allows members to renew their own subscriptions and pay for other transactions through our online payment gateways.

Reminders are sent out to members automatically for outstanding payments and upcoming subscription renewals, removing the need for manual follow-ups.

Weekly finance and membership reports are emailed automatically so you can stay on top of your finances as well as new or expiring memberships.

Configure restrictions for the online booking system to control court bookings based on roles, memberships, or peak hours, with a waiting list and opt-in email reminders to help with crowded courts.

Access control system integration allows full control of doors and court lights, real time monitoring of access and usage, and remote door or lights control for events.

All system actions are automatically recorded in the audit log, which encourages transparency and accountability, as any issues can be traced back to the responsible user.
