    The reintroduction to Zen planner has been great. I'm learning new things and I'm excited about the dashboard that will show me exactly what's going on every day at first glance. It's exciting that I can customize it as well!

    I can't say enough good things about my onboarding coach. She was and continues to be amazing support with Zen Planner. I appreciate all of her patience and genuine interest in helping me utilize the software to its​ maximum potential for my business.

    I'm looking forward to growing with Zen Planner

    Pros

    I left for about four years because I felt like the software was missing some integral parts for my business.

    Now I was needing something different and looked at Zen Planner again. The​ changes they have made over the past four years has been amazing.

    This is not a company that sits idle and is content with the status quo

    Cons

    The system is a little complex but I believe it's more to do with the novelty of it and all of its features.

    Just amazing! I truly have been very excited with this software and I enjoy interacting with it in a daily basis.

    Pros

    What I liked most about this software was the amount of things that it can do to not only help manage the numbers but keep the clients engaged and happy. I am also always amazed by the competence of the customer support team who I have called several times with questions I thought would be complicated but were not to them! I really appreciate this software and I really think my customers do again. I would recommend to anybody in the martial arts industry!

    Cons

    I couldn't think of anything in particular that I didn't like but if I had to say something it would be that I wish it would be more engaging with my actual website. The thing is that it probably can, I just don't know how to yet.

    Good for very simple gym businesses, bad for everything else.

    Reviewed on 10/16/2017

    Pros

    ZP lets us schedule and bill clients in one place. It spits out reasonably useful accounting summaries and can handle some email automations.

    Cons

    This software is the worst part of my job. Do not be fooled by their slick sales staff: this cannot perform most of the functions advertised. It can, but only in a perfect world where you gym runs exactly as ZP imagines it. In this imaginary perfect world, you'd need a team of administrators working full-time to keep your database up-to-date and functioning.

    Our gym runs about 250 sessions per week. That's either classes or PT. They're all different. ZP's workout builder does not work for this. We were spending ~3 hours per day inputting workouts. It could not scale. So now we do not track workouts in the software.

    We see 100 leads per week and run free trials to get them into the gym. ZP's various 'prospect' systems cannot handle this. They are not manipulatable enough to handle the different types of trials we'd like to offer. Doing so, again, would take a team of administrators. We now use a separate sales software for everyone on trial.

    ZP goes down most days for 1-2 hours. 5-6 days per week. Just no software to run the gym. No attendance tracked, no bills processed, no member questions answered.

    ZP's calendar never works on the first try. Literally. When I click on a staff member's calender I wait 15sec for the software to reload the full gym calendar with no changes. Then I click the staff member a second time, wait another 15sec, and only then am I rewarded with his/her calendar. With 28 staff this is not working.

    Response from Zen Planner

    I¿m sorry to hear your experience with Zen Planner has been less than ideal. We'd like to offer help to ensure your database is set up efficiently and give you a direct point of contact for the issues you have brought to our attention. Please reach out to our retention expert, Nick Deprez at [email protected], to get set up as your review is anonymous and we are unable to reach you directly. In response to your note about down time: we diligently track the down time of our software and are currently at 99.87% availability.

I¿ve passed your feedback about our feature compatibility and sales to our Sales Team to review and ensure we maintain transparency and honesty in our sales process.

    Pros

    Billing and scheduling is made easy through ZP which is my only function right now.

    Cons

    This is not a email system that is all encompassing so it makes it hard to set up a nurture program. Having it integrated with Mailchimp in a cleaner way would be great. It's not easy to manage.

    The customer service has been great in helping us resolve issues and work around systems that aren't quite what we need.

    Pros

    We like that we can track student count/growth, attendance, belt ranking, finances, and appointments all in one place.

    Cons

    The calendar is not easy to use and often leads to errors if you don't follow certain steps.
