As a manager or owner of a music studio, we totally get that you’d prefer to hear from others in such positions rather than software developers. Even though we could brag all day about the user-friendly and efficiency-increasing tools of JackRabbit Class software, we know you’d rather hear about it from someone just like you. So we’re going to take a little virtual tour of three music studios and schools across the country, and let their leaders tell you how Jackrabbit software has benefited their organizations.
First, we’ll visit with Matt Coker, founder and manager of Coker Music. Matt began using Jackrabbit’s web-based tools after a hard drive crash that threatened his music school’s security and reliability. He knew he wanted to find a way to automate various processes in a way that would improve his organization and lead to business growth. When Matt discovered that Jackrabbit software was web-based, it held immediate appeal: he knew he’d no longer have to worry about the safety of his clients’ or his own data. Another feature that was especially attractive to him was the integration with QuickBooks, allowing him to have confidence in the accounting.
Matt Coker had begun his business using paper spreadsheets to manage his 40 music students. At the time, hand-processing checks and hand-writing schedules was completely reasonable; when he came on board with Jackrabbit, however, his business had grown to incorporate 147 students (along with 4 teachers and 2 locations), making those archaic methods he’d been using cumbersome and inefficient. Once Matt started letting Jackrabbit track schedules, finances, and more, his work load became lighter. But that’s definitely not the only way he benefited.
Because of Jackrabbit’s web-based platform, Matt can now easily manage any business details from home; as a result, he’s able to maximize his studio time by interacting with his students. Thanks to Jackrabbit, Matt can easily review details and monitor student progress, allowing him to offer a more thorough and professional service than before. And all that added value has been available without significantly increasing his staff.
Here’s a direct quote from Matt Coker about his experience with Jackrabbit:
“We could have never handled our present student list with our previous traditional tools. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to implement Jackrabbit. The system gives me the knowledge that I need to run my operations more efficiently, to be more attentive to my customers and to grow. We could never have handled our present student list with our previous traditional tools. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to purchase Jackrabbit.” — Matt Coker, Coker Music
Coker Music is definitely not the only music studio to benefit from letting Jackrabbit lighten the load. In our next post, we’ll visit Jennings Music and Education Center.
