PerfectGym innovations back industry re-opening

PerfectGym innovations back industry re-opening
May 15, 2020

Following the recent release of a live streaming feature for classes, PerfectGym has continued to innovate and add additional features to their platform to assist clients with their re-entry strategies - anticipating how club owners and centre managers will need to operate as facilities are allowed to re-open in various capacities.

Taking into account Federal and state government guidelines, in the ever fluid Coronavirus environment, PerfectGym has built upon and refined aspects of its platform to assist with maintaining regulated occupancy limits in facilities, and enabled club owners to easily abide by guidelines and support proposed ‘Covid Safe Plans’ in the future.

Introducing the new platform enhancements, PerfectGym Country Manager Matt Inglis explains "I am proud of and impressed with our company’s ability to react and produce enhancements and new features to assist clubs during COVID-19; which is testament to the agile nature of our offering and development Ethos.

"In some cases, features that count ‘who is in’ the club have existed since 2010, but we now can offer the ability to scan out of the club, through a simple to implement 'people in club counter' that will deny entry when the threshold is reached."

Building upon the need to limit entry and control thresholds, PerfectGym's ‘max people in club’ feature is able to deny entry to members when the facility maximum occupancy is reached, to complement the ‘who is in’ functionality.

Noting the importance to uphold customer satisfaction, PerfectGym has in addition, added a ‘club counter’ to their mobile app, and soon also to their member portal, which is able to inform members of current club capacities, so they can plan their work out accordingly, and to avoid being turned away.

On the topic of the PerfectGym portal, the industry’s first truly mobile responsive and branded portal, PerfectGym has utilised their flexible booking system to allow facilities to implement a booking system for attending the facility that is able to be tiered to be paid, non-paid, and is accompanied with a plethora of settings, empowering club owners and enabling them to set parameters specific to their facility and guidelines.

Pairing the Member Portal, mobile app, Automation Centre and Access Control modules, Inglis notes "will allow clients to maintain guideline recommendations, allow members to easily return to gyms, and ensure all people are safe and happy when they return to the gym.

"We at PerfectGym cannot wait for our clients and the industry to reopen; and are proud to be able to have our clients utilise our platform to help make their unique re-entry and reopening as easy and stress free as possible.".
