CompuDance

Cloud-based studio management platform for small businesses

About CompuDance

CompuDance is a cloud-based studio management platform designed to help small businesses including dance, gymnastics centers, martial arts academies, music studios, preschools, and fitness studios streamline all administrative tasks. It allows teachers to use the in-built calendar to schedule classes, track attendance, and communicate with students about classes via SMS or email.

Key features of CompuDance include billing, accounting, email marketing, registration management, automated payments, scheduling, and online store integration. It provides mobile applications for parents and teachers to communicate with each other, enroll students, update account information and complete customizable enrollment questions. Businesses can use the costume management module to automatically calculate students' sizes for costumes by adding their measurements in the tool.

CompuDance's recital/event planner enables schools to create, manage and assign events to students, as well as teachers, preventing conflicts between routines. It comes with a web application programming interface (API), which allows users to connect the system with their business website.

Pros

The online application for virtually everything! Awesome customer support. Options for having multiple schools all in one data base.

Cons

I miss having the expense record options. It made tax season so much easier and help to keep up with vendors and monthly spending.

I have had an excellent experience with CompuDance. They are very quick to respond with any problems or questions.

Pros

Easy to navigate and learn new features

Cons

Just need to have a way of tracking each payment entered - maybe with a Full Check amount box and then disperse the check how needed. If any leftover it automatically becomes a credit. That would be amazing!

Reasons for Switching to CompuDance

I had the old desktop version of CompuDance and I just truly felt like they were more than accommodating on the switch to online services.

It does what we need, but the process of getting those needs met is challenging at best. In speaking with other studio owners it seems there are other programs that are much simpler and offer more than Compudance, and we do plan to look into them.

Pros

The customer service is excellent - we always get a quick response with answers to our questions. The Help area is usually helpful as well. It's nice that you offer mass texting, and we look forward to trying it, as we often have issues with our email provider. Aside from that... we spend a lot of time complaining about it.

Cons

Nothing is intuitive or easy to do/figure out. I notice lots of typos in various areas, which is just a reflection of the attention to detail. The fact that EVERYTHING needed to be recreated from scratch (versus imported) when you upgraded to the current version is unbelievable, and caused a ridiculous amount of work/frustration. It's also hard to believe this is a new version. It looks and feels very clunky and dated. And is there a mobile version? If not, there should be. Not that we'd attempt to use it given how challenging the desktop version is. We've noted a number of issues via customer services channels, but some things that would make a nice addition would be adding phone and/or email info to the billing areas as we often need to see balance detail and then get in touch with a family. We now have to go to "Student" to get their contact info, write it down, and go back to "Billing" to get the info we need to communicate. Was told we could open a separate tab and have two tabs of Compudance running, but this seems unnecessary. Reports are not easy or obvious. Creating groups is not easy. Honestly, nothing is easy - and it should be. Deposits are impossible to find and make logging payments very confusing - no matter which view you use (and why are there two to begin with?)

I have solved my need for monthly billing with the integration of payment processors to handle all ACH and Credit Card payments. The software also allows and keeps track of advanced payments on deposit. There Online Parent Portal gives each costumer (guardians) the ability to update all account information, make any and additional payments directly from their own Personal Portal, add individual dance classes each semester as needed. Numerous other option included for handling communication with all clients on an individual or group basis. I could not handle our business so efficiently without the Compu Dance software.

Pros

First and for most the costumer service team is amazing. Their software is complete with all tools needed to run our studio with precision for over 16 years. They are constantly adding addition features based on customer recommendations and feedback.

Cons

There is nothing we do not like about this software.

Response from CompuDance

Thanks so much, Dave! We love being able to help you run and grow your business. We appreciate you!

Each update is better and better

Reviewed on 2018/04/13

Pros

The best part of CompuDance is the customer service. My calls or e-mails are answered promptly and the staff is helpful. I like that new updates are becoming available with helpful features. My favorite recent update is the entire ledger on a family account

Cons

I would like to see the pricing matrix work with our family discounts and be able to calculate the discount for students on the same account. It would also be helpful if when I typed something in the search bar if I typed part of the word it would come up. For example billing category "competitions/conventions - hollywood vibe" I could just type Hollywood Vibe...

Response from CompuDance

Hi Ashlee
Thank you for your review! We have recently added more flexibility in calculating tuition and we should be able to accommodate your tuition schedule. If you email your fee schedule over to us we can take a look and get back to you. Thank you for being a loyal CompuDance customer!
