Whether you’re ready to make the switch from labor-intensive manual methods or are ready to increase your efficiency in a big way with extremely flexible processes, Jackrabbit software is well-suited to the needs of your music studio or school! In case you’re not yet convinced, we’d love to introduce you to Kelly Bowlin, owner of Gwinnett Music School. Jackrabbit helps Kelly masterfully conduct the goings on of his 4 music schools as well as the dance school that he runs. Between the 5 schools, Kelly manages 75 employees and 747 students.
Kelly’s need for a particularly robust program is met in Jackrabbit. With its single database, Jackrabbit helps Kelly to make strategic decisions for his business while also keeping up with daily tasks. Here’s how Kelly puts it: “Having multiple locations, yet a single database to work in, is awesome, and it’s one of the features that gives Jackrabbit such power.”
One of the most powerful features Kelly appreciates about Jackrabbit’s web-based software is its reporting functionality. The choices that Jackrabbit makes available allows for helpful starting points when making key decisions. Not only does it allow you to quickly and easily access relevant data, but the reporting feature also provides flexibility for tweaking reports. That flexibility includes the possibility of specifying your choice of criteria, and you can even save any particular report for future use, keeping you from having to remember and recreate it for the next time.
Kelly describes that benefit this way: “Jackrabbit is powerful for slicing and dicing data. And doing it isn’t complicated. In fact, Jackrabbit reporting is the only reasonable way that I can get data that is consumable – that actually has value to me in managing and growing our school.”
In addition to Jackrabbit’s reporting capabilities, Kelly also loves its automated payment system. Because of the size of his business, Kelly is amazed at how it allows him to combine data from all 5 studio locations for a single payment process. By leveraging automation, instead of requiring added employees, the Jackrabbit payment process allows an owner to be able to track and compare data, fueling their ability to make confident business decisions.
Here’s what Kelly says about it: “Jackrabbit has the coolest payment system of any software of its kind. I love that I can batch payments together with their approval codes and see them accurately attributed in reports. I can run revenue tracking reports and create year-to-year comparisons. Being able to do this has totally changed the way I make decisions. The payment process has been transformational for our entire organization.”
Whether or not your music school has grown to the size of Kelly’s, we’re sure you could benefit similarly from the streamlined processes that allow you as a business owner to keep tabs on the day-to-day details in a way that empowers you to make wise financial choices for your school.
