While we're pretty busy most of the time building simple to use software, we do take some time out to post updates on new features, our thoughts on the wider health industry, and tell stories of our journey here.
A goal of ours at Influx has always been to consolidate the software you need to use in running your fitness business into one, easy to use place. Today we take another step closer to that ambition with the introduction of our embeddable form functionality. This allows you to embed a signup form directly into your website so that potential clients have one less barrier to entry to becoming paying clients. Not only can you embed the signup form but you can also customise it and also create custom forms for any other type of data you may wish to record or collect. This could be as simple as a contact us form, or as detailed as a course feedback form. The limit is with your imagination. So dive into this new feature found in Comms>Forms and let us know what you think!

We love the evolution of our planner over the years. We’ve added, amended and polished it many times based on the feedback we get from our clients. Today that evolution continues with the addition of the fortnightly recurring class option. To be fair this is a very rare class recurring option but we’ve reached the threshold for action on it and so it’s been delivered. If you run fortnightly classes, or would like to, you can now add those directly in the planner. Just make sure to select the correct first start day to ensure the alternation is the way you want it to be.

Influx was started to delight Group Fitness business owners and attendees alike and that’s something we continue to improve on every day. However one feature that we constantly get asked for from gyms that do other things than just groupfit, or don’t do groupfit at all is, do you do door entry? Well I’m pleased to announce that as of today we do do door entry.

Whilst just a small improvement, for the OCD amongst you, you’ll be pleased to know you can now archive studios that you’re no longer using (which has the primary benefit of meaning you won’t see them in the new class dialog). We track and listen to every suggestion we get from our clients and know that even little features like this can make someones experience in Influx just that much smoother and we love to deliver these, so enjoy!

We’re constantly evolving our payment features and options and one that has been in the works for some time is the ability to schedule payments against pass invoices. You can now do this directly off the pass invoice using the members stored debit details in their account. This feature makes it easy for members already on direct debit memberships to attend courses or buy additional passes with no fuss.

Member attendance data is critical in understanding how your members are going in trying to achieve their health and fitness goals. This info is also important for meeting the health and fitness goals of your business. Members on unlimited memberships filling up space restricted classes and then no-showing affect your bottom line. As such we want to make it easy to find out who is abusing your resources by consistently no-showing classes and we’ve done this with the no-show report. You can find it Reports>Attendance>No shows & late cancels
Continue reading Added no show & late cancel report
Sometimes you need to get in touch with everyone that’s coming to a specific class, whether to let them know of a new requirement or change in instructor and we’ve just made that as simple as a button press. From the class options menu, you can now just select to email all attendees and edit the message immediately and then send. Done! It’s important to stay connected to your clients and to have an easy way to quickly communicate with them and this is a helpful new option in staying connected.

Being able to manage your gym on the run is great but if you’ve got a front desk, wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to keep it manned all the time? Or maybe you just want to reduce the workload on your existing front desk staff? Well that’s where InfluxKiosk comes in.
