Pros: Easy to make adjustments, like if someone cancels. Also easy to make updates to the schedule and track payments and memberships.

Cons: I really think that Mind Body is a great program. The only con would be that it is difficult sometimes to have the site embedded into the studio's own website. to keep everything central.

It's a simple app to use when signing up for classes at my local gym.

Pros: It's pretty intuitive and easy to use. I appreciate that a gym or studio doesn't automatically get access to the credit card I have saved in my app.

Cons: I wish there was less menu diving to switch between two or more gyms/studios and that it would save all my favorites on the homepage.

Pros: It is very easy and intuitive to use. The features are clean and the transition between functionalities are smooth and seamless.

Cons: The only issues I've had with MindBody are logging me out of a default location. I want to always have my main location launch when opening the app but sometimes that isn't the case. Nothing major at all, though.

Overall: Very easy to facilitate clients and customers. As we ramp up, it's a simple CRM to use (much better than plenty others I've worked with).

Pros: I have used it multiple times (almost every yoga studio i went to uses it). Overall, I like it. It's great how it shows the upcoming classes and how many spots are left in each class.

Cons: I didn't like the idea that as a user you need to create a different account for each studio. It seems only logical that there would be a single account that I would use for all my studio visits so that I don't have to register again and repeat all my information again. Also, the registration form asks for too much information. Finally, there's a lot of room to improve on the design and user experience.

Cons: Comprehensive software can be quite challenging for some to use and navigate. If this is a software you choose, make sure you get adequate training and have a list of questions ready- some "simple" tasks can take several steps.

Comments: I feel like a hostage on a system that is great, but constantly trying to drive up its prices, which is totally arbitrary and not transparent. Not a great business partner, but a pretty good system.

Pros: Accurate record keeping Advanced features Reasonable Merchant Processing (have to go with MB's Provider) Branded app and website integration

Pros: It seemed to be easy to use and useful accessible for the clients to book sessions and adjust scheduling.

Cons: It had too little flexibility. I was told that it would fit the needs of my business and after paying the set up costs, 2 months of use (which was never used do to the incorrect information given to me) and my implentation coach constantly cancelling and rescheduling our calls I found out that it didn't fit any of my business needs.

Pros: Mindbody has all the features needed to schedule, manage your customers, and customize the look and feel of the software to your brand for daily operations.

Cons: Biggest issue is price. There are several other software options available that offer many if not all of the features of Mindbody. I used the product for about 2 years. There is an increase in price. If I recall, there were 4 price increases in 2 years. Paying for features that apply to other business is a BIG minus.

Excess features make it confusing to use.

Pros: The ability to download reports on many different stats, and further the ability to download them as different formats, like excel and pdf,

This allows for easy tracking and book keeping.

Cons: -Payment enter information for a user can be a challenge, they need to make a login and password. This is ok if they use the MINDBODY app for other health and fitness services but most of mine don't, and they don't want to make another use account. So instead I have to take their payment info by phone, when it's be easier for me to send them an electronic form to fill out and it would auto populate their client profile.

-calendar is hard to use for blocking time off, for example if away on vacation etc. needs to be more like google iCal, it would be even better if it could sync with google iCal (the reverse) to see if there are any calendar appointments that would otherwise make that person unavailable at that time. calendar needs to be more adaptable and allow overlap of different things if necessary.

Overall: Alllows me to accept payments from clients with relative ease after their payment info is on their profile. Bookkeeping and tracking of all sales.

Pros: Scheduling appointments is much easier than our previous system, when the site is functioning properly. Running payroll and reports is much easier than our previous system.

Cons: Frequent service interruptions - system was down for 3 hours one day, causing delays in bookings, checking in and payment processing. It is very hard to ask a client if they don't mind if we charge a credit card for service after they have left (when system functions again) or asking people if we can call them back to schedule an appointment because system is down. I had been calling periodically for over 2 weeks because of lag time on site, customer service blamed it on our internet provider (Charter). After our outage, they admitted that they had problems with a software update and were pulling it back to fix bugs. This would have been nice to know from the beginning. I would love to switch software, but it seems that all booking software has issues and the time it takes to import data and appointments may not be worth it. My hope is that Mindbody works out the bugs and can figure out a way to maintain functionality of it's site. Also, when calling customer service, they generally look up an answer on their own Help site - which I have already read. Seems like everyone is scripted, not actually trained in technical support.

Pros: At first it was easy enough to use, but the more comfortable I became in using its features the more trouble I started having.

Cons: Clients come in for appointments they thought they successfully booked but didn't. Trying to schedule a simple break in between appointments becomes impossible if I have breaks scheduled at other times and other days. I have wound up deleting the mobile ap from my phone so I can just go to the full site, but support says I shouldn't do this because their full site isn't designed to be used on mobile devices. So, what appears to be many awesome features turns out to be worthless. We were better off using pencil and paper.

Overall: The benefits are unpredictable. I've been using it because it's all I've got right now, but am shopping around for something better

Easiest app I've used to sign in ever! I used it for only a few months though!

Pros: The customer service was initially very responsive but then as soon as I had an actual issue to resolve and it was not interested in buying or upgrading my service the service quality dropped and I ended up waiting for weeks to get a reply.

Cons: I wasted many hours to customize the site and a substantial amount of money but have not received a single booking from the platform. AVOID. There are so many other sites that do this much for free.

Overall: in my case nothing - absolute waste of time and money

Comments: They have a good customer service department that can help tutor you in areas that are not intuitive.

Pros: It makes quarterly or year end tax calculations a breeze. It can separate different types of income quickly and efficiently, and can go back several years.

Cons: It is quite pricey, so a start-up studio would want to wait until they have a steady income stream with a growing client base. Also, several of the features are complicated to use which can be frustrating.

Pros: MindBody is an incredibly easy to use and to the point software designed to help schedule + directly add reminders to your calendar, advertise, make payments to businesses, and keep track of your fitness classes. MindBody is a phenomenal tool to use as a client. Exercise companies/businesses that use MindBody make it accessible for clients with busy schedules to book time to take care of themselves through exercise.

Cons: I wish I did not get logged out of the app unexpectedly and when my phone does app updates. Not that big of a deal but it is annoying to get kicked out.

Overall: Instant reminders and calendar management of fitness classes.

Pros: I absolutely love mindbody. I have used it at two gyms I have worked at. Both Training Mate in West Hollywood and Orangetheory Fitness. I have more restrictions on what I am able to use at Orangetheory (I am unable to do things like merge accounts) but it is still an amazing system to use. By the click of a button, we are able to book our members into their classes. And my favorite feature is being able to do charges with mind body. It is so simple and helps us so much. It ensures safety for our members when the credit cards are declined, it says why, if it's stolen or if we should not honor.

Cons: I overall really enjoy using the mind body software. I would have to say the one thing I dislike it is when the system goes down. When it goes down you are unable to view any pages other than the hiccup page. Other than that, there aren't any problems I see.

Pros: MB has been the industry standard for yoga and massage for years. Their product offers many layers of functionality for service based industries. Mobile app is useful for scheduling.

Cons: I have used MB for almost 8 years and used to love them but they have changed significantly recently. In the last 24 months the service and product has degraded significantly. Customer service calls average a 45 minute wait during the days, call back service doesn't work. CSR, are now poorly trained at finding solutions (they used to be amazing). Bugs continue to pop up with each revision and most remain unresolved. In January 2017 errors with the online scheduler became excessive (4 in one month) where clients booked apts online and we were never notified of their requests.
Then with the addition of text apt reminders it increased charges and I was unaware that other providers did this at no extra charge. Then in January 2017 an email from the president (which intentionally went to junk mail since it didn't come from the known sender like the bills come from) indicated a necessary increase with no new functionality. Leaving them has been hard to transfer data to a new provider, but worth it.

Overall: It provides a one stop program for practice management.

Pros: 24 hour customer support - I do find it's best to contact support between 3 and 5am though if I want to get through to someone quickly.

Cons: So many things! To get anything done it seems like to you have to go through so many steps. I find that the bulk of my time spent working with the yoga studio is trying to get things done on mindbody! They are so expensive. You can only get to merchant information M-F during business hours (there should be a portal to this information) and overall very buggy.

The software has empowered me to be the CEO, COO, CFO, CMO and everything in between!

Pros: I love the Business app. I am able to run my business on the go and be in touch with clients, sales, overall business view. I am addicted to it!

Cons: I am not able to quickly and easily email or text a class roster or a segment of clients who have attended a specific class type in the past. The only method of accomplishing this is time consuming and klunky.

It was a huge learning curve for me (and still is) since I came from using a much simpler POS.

Pros: Easy to use
Easy to ask students to use it.
Once you know what you are doing then it's easy to keep doing that.

When things change, it's very visible and easy for my teachers to figure out.

I like how the most important things you need to pay attention to shows in red.

Very user friendly.

Customer support is very compassionate.

Most people are super knowledgeable

Cons: Same errors keep happening for workshop feature

I assigned the pricing options for workshops but it doesn't show for people to buy online through mind body app.

This lead to loss of business because people thought the workshop was full when it wasn't.

We couldn't even us the "buy" option next to the name before the workshop to purchase the workshop.

We had to go to retail section and bring up the person to buy the workshop.

Then we had to go to each person's account and assign the pricing option to the workshop.

Great success with integrating mindbody into our studio and setting it up for all clients.

Cons: Auto emails are difficult to tailorize and see who accepts them or opens them. An easier way to set up contracts for all clients and using a promo code. Mobile app is not as user friendly for business portion.

Pros: I love that we can make sales while we are sleeping. We live in such a connected world, and people are always online. Having this software so people can sign up for clssses and pay for memberships in their pajamas at home has increased our revenue 220% in the last year. The support is great and the stress it has relieved from our staff is worth every penny.

Cons: There are some functionality issues that make it difficult to use at times. The online store for merchandise Is not easy to use and not as beautiful as the rest of the software is. This could use improvement to help us sell our retail items easier online and increase our revenue even more.

Overall Mind Body has been easy to use and pull reports.

Pros: The Mind Body Online staff is really helpful and accommodating if you have the monthly service plan. There are many reports that come standard with the software that are useful in analyzing the business, and they can also build custom reports if needed.

Cons: The software crashes in our stores every couple of weeks but usually comes back up relatively quickly. Any custom reports or data work take a long time to get done (at least 2 weeks). Also, because the company is so big, you have to work with different people depending on what you need to get the job done.

Overall: Reporting, appointment booking (online and through an app), checkout and POS processing.

Very comprehensive spa, workshop and class booking software but too pricey.

Pros: The only pro I can think of is the integrated merchant processing. Even then it's not really a pro because if you want to use another processor it's not gonna happen.

Cons: Work Item 506732 - [Public API][Verified][GetClientServices][Business App] Unable to check out appointments with services that are associated with a service category relationship

This issue was first reported to Mindbody on July 31st and to-date nothing has been done to resolve it. We continuously call and email the company to only be told the following and I quote "Compensation: We discussed our Terms of Service, and how they do not grant compensation for work items such as these. The compensation you were given was related to your experience, and not associated in anyway with a loss of revenue, or increase in cost associated with this work item. Because you have already been compensated for your experience with this issue, there will be no additional or ongoing compensation applied to your account.
Internal Communication: I have reached out to our Developers for the most current information about this issue that they can provide to us. When they reply to me, I can relay that information to you. You will also be proactively notified via email when the issue is resolved."

This is fine and all but Mindbody will not sit here and continue to charge us full price for less than half of a product. Literally when teachers cannot check out lessons properly the system doesn't know to bill for the lessons. That means an overall decrease in revenue and a break down of the billing system.

Pros: We had worked with MindBody since 2007 and for the first few years we were really happy with their service. However, since they started making change after change in 2013 their program causes Safari to crash and their recommended Dymo printer is no longer compatible with most browsers.

Cons: They interrupt business on a regular basis in an effort to "improve" their software. They have been doing this since 2013. Although we and other business we know that still use them or used to use them provided feedback on the disruptive process they still opt to run these feature changes during peak business hours. It is disrespectful of MindBody to constantly disrupt business for those paying for service. Our rep tried to upset us in February 2017 and was told "No" given all the disruptions we had experienced. He ended up signing us up for an increase anyway and we are still working with them to get back the money stolen.

Pros: I didn't even finish the set up course to get the software off of the ground. I did not find any pros with this Company that could not be found with some of the other companies of this same caliber.

Cons: Most companies give you a 30 day trial. Beware because MINDBODY does not. They offer me 3 months at half priced; however, signed me up for a package that was double the price I thought it would be. It takes over a week to get an appointment with a specialist to help you set up, and the software is not user-friendly. After 3 months, I was still not utilizing the software. I tried to cancel for 2 weeks. Two days after I cancelled, they charged my card for another full month of use. There are other companies that are economical, user-friendly and easier to set up. I do not recommend this company.

Overall: None

After you canceled your subscription, you were billed a prorated fee for 28 days which fulfilled the 30 days notice required.

Pros: It is a reliable software. Works well on both online and mobile versions. It is well known in the industry, which means your clients may find it familiar.

Cons: Too expensive and always increasing the price, which they try to justify overly promoting things you will probably not going to need. Also, Mindbody used to say how many millions they are investing and blablabla, to justify increasing the prices.

Too complicated to use. Prepare to spend lot's of money and time in their 'academy' courses. It is like an old windows system, where you have many ways to getting to the same thing usually getting lost or forgetting in the middle what was you doing... So complicated that they need to have such courses just to teach you the system (or make you more dependent of their system). Without their trainings you are in trouble.

Poor costumer service. If you are joining or leaving the company they will give you some attention. If you are a regular costumer, prepare to be ignored and wait long for an answer.

Do not recommend at all.

Overall: I benefited from its booking system, payment system and customised app.

Pros: MindBodyOnline is used across many studios so it is easy to use. It does most of what I want it to do but not necessarily without workarounds. I really wanted this to work but it's now getting my financials wrong and this is huge for me.

Cons: Very buggy. The phone app acts differently than the web browser application. It's making it nearly impossible to trust my appointments, sessions and payments for clients. I run my studio with the mobile app and it's getting increasingly challenging. As I am a small business, I feel that I don't have much weight to influence positive changes to the app through customer support. I've been told it's because I'm on an entry level version of the app and that if I upgrade I can get what I need. I don't feel that spending extra money after experiencing ridiculous price hikes over the past 2 years will help. I am desperately looking for an alternative to run my business. I've tried several times to talk with customer support and they are always very friendly and try to be helpful but I think they are limited to how the company is being run. I was told to email the CEO directly, I did that 3-4 times and my emails went unanswered.

If there is anything I can tell you not to use:

Referred by Relationship- It mixes packages and false payment information between those two clients

Booking appointments by mobile app- It allows you to book and it automatically takes sessions from their package and reserves it for that session. When you check how many sessions they have left, it's not accurate because it already reserved these sessions so it looks like your client is due for payment when they are not. The web app does not do this!

Overall: It was relatively easy to setup and get going but I wished that I had more alternatives to test before putting my entire business on this. I am seeking an alternative.

Pros: I love that we can track every interaction we have with our members. We are able to have a continuous relationship with our members solely based on our contact logs and every person that follows up can use that contact log to keep the relationship strong.

You are able to track EVERY aspect of running a business, from revenue to member activity. One program to rule them all.

Cons: There is so much and if you aren't in MBU then you may not have the ability to utilize all aspects to their full capacity.

Overall: I am able to fully commit to member relationships based on what is available to me thru MBO. I am able to contact and connect with every member and track that interaction. Once we transition to memberships on the program it will be nice to have ALL information in one system instead of toggling back and forth between multiple.

Cons: It's ridiculously complicated and time consuming to set up. A trainer calls you once a week with a 45 minute tutorial, it takes weeks to set up and seriously wasted a lot of my time and patience. After all the time and trouble, mine couldn't be set up, as my business is in various locations. I explained this to them, during their sales pitch. They could have told me it wouldn't be suitable for me, before I signed up, I had explained what I wanted. I went thru weeks of nonsense with them. If you call them, you'll be passed from one operator to another, I was on hold today 1 hour. I had to cancel my subscription with them. And then, the final kick in the teeth, they're keeping my money!!! They've done nothing but cause me hassle and they're getting paid for it! I'm beyond disgusted. I wonder how many other business they promise a service to, can't deliver and then keep their money.

Overall: I'm so stressed out with dealing with them today, that I'm off to get a bottle of wine. I'd like it if I got my money back. I like if they told me it wasn't suitable for my business, before I signed up and they took my time and money

Pros: Not much positive about this software. Once setup (see bellow) kind of works, poor layout. My clients didn't like the way and trouble they had to go through to book.

Cons: Can't send sms reminders. Leave a message they'll call you back... Maybe in 2-5 days, emails worst. takes 3 to 5 hours to setup with staff over the phone. Staff don't seem to know the product. Very hard to change classes (days/times). After clicking any changes screen flashes, nothing to tell you that it has saved changes.

Overall: An entire community of support and like-minded individuals!

Pros: The Pro is the Company and its VALUES. Mindbody's passion about health and wellness education. Changing the world one person at a time thru health. Their desire to provide a platform for the small guy to manage their business and have the time to take care of the most important asset--people.

Overall: It changed my business

I love that support system includes the care of the wellbeing of our business.

Pros: Having events like MBU and MB BOLD that bring the other businesses and experts in our industry together to allow us to share and support one another. Without this support, it would make our business harder to run and manage. MB One is going to be such an asset to the business in keeping us connected to help each other.

Cons: Having the ability to create custom detailed reports to fit the exact business model we run. We do get what we need from the reports system. Customizing to our particular needs would be even better

Pros: It does what is it supposed to. Schedules appointments. Point of sale. Same as any other scheduling software

Cons: Extremely over priced. The software is not too easy to use. Does not work as well as other softwares. Clients did not like the online booking

Overall: None. Pricing was ridiculous. Wasn't easy to use. Vagaro is a much better program

Pros: Usually works and looks pretty good on client-facing side. It looks like 1998 on the back side and runs beautifully by 1998 standards.

Cons: Bugs. Lack of integration with other software. Bugs. Lack of integration with other hardware. Bugs. Makes your accounting WAY more difficult because of : bugs.

Pros: We use the MINDBODY App at the yoga/barre studio what I work with and it makes booking classes SO much easier. It also takes the time out of taking payments from our members because they can purchase memberships and passes right through the app! Our clients also love that the app syncs with their Fitbit and can show calories burned and heart rate information from the class!

Mindbody is a great way to manage group exercise classes.

Pros: Online Registration for group exercise classes. Members can register for a class online and not worry about showing up to and the class being full.

Cons: Not really a con, but some people simply do not like using computer and need a better way to incorporate people showing up and people signing up online.

Overall: Directly communicate with members based on their interested and use of our facility.

Pros: Customer service is very kind and assisting you to get a job done. If they don't know how to do it they are very proactive about learning how to do it even though it may take you being on the line with them for a really long time. But they are really nice people.

Cons: The 20+ minute wait. The phone system that doesn't call you back. The lousy music you have to listen to when you're online waiting. The price is exorbitant. Now if you have a problem, and you get up to do your scheduling and billing earlier than 8 AM , you may not be able to get into your account because other countries don't have the security information needed to properly assist you . So you got up early for no reason at all. And then you're working all day long with clients and you have to take your lunch break or time you don't have to call MindBody and then you sit on the phone for 20+ minutes.

Overall: It organized my billing and scheduling. That's very helpful. It makes it easier to find reports. However now that I do not pay the high dollar amount I do not have access to many of those reports.

Pros: membership restriction
payment on account
Italian consumer online portion

that's all... nothing else to say

Cons: everything!
* Constant price increase
*basic level gets you nothing to do the basics for your business
*contract only single item entrance
*reports: I cannot get reports that are required per the law in Italy at the basic level. The report is a basic sales report broken down by tax category. Again, this is a requirement per the law in Italy.
* MBO Lies and doesn't care about improving things it need to get compliant to sell in certain countries. They are aware but do nothing about it. It is highly frustrating
*was sold the Pro level initially even though I didn't need 90% of what it offered and was told the MBO app was available in italian. It was a lie. After I bought it, they said 1 month and it would be available. 1.5 years later and it still is not available.

MBO is not a viable option for CrossFit boxes. I do not recommend it for small businesses or a CF Box. You will waste hours for nothing. There are better systems for less money.

Overall: none

Pros: Membership restrictions. payment on account consumer online portion is in Italian ( the language of the country I live in)

Cons: Everything! Was told the app was available in Italian when I was sold the system. 1.5 years later there was a price increase and still no Italian app. I am in Italy and this is one the most important features of my business. * lowest level barely gives you the basics you need to run a business. *By law, I need sales broken down into 3 categories: 1. total sales 2. sales at 22% VAT 3. sales at 10%. Unfortunately, at the basic level this is NOT offered. My sales reporting is per the Italian Law as we must report to the government in this format. It isn't worth paying extra a month for a report I need by law. *By law, I need scontrino and fattura capabilities which they do not have available for Italy yet they continue to sell to Italy. MBO is not compliant with Italian law. They have been very unresponsive in correcting anything and continue to sell in Italy. *TotalWOD not great *Can't put more than 1 item in a contract. *can't do inventory *horrible customer service. takes over a month to get a response via email and several hours waits on chat or phone. *constant price increases *there is so much more I really do not like about Mindbody Online. They shouldn't be selling in a country that they are not compliant with the law at the basic price. *They are NOT designed for a CrossFit Box. *The system is too slow regardless of the operating system. I have tried it on a MAC and a PC. *when a SEPA/ACH fails and gets returned, it doesn't alert the system. It used to do it with the first 3rd party processor (ayden) but doesn't with PaySafe. MBO said they would look into it and never got back to me so now when something fails, I manually adjust the account. It is a pain. A software system should make your life easier.... NOT mind body online. Worst system ever! I am would not recommend it to anyone especially a CrossFit facility operating as a normal business (non ASD). You will waste hours with them. Truly, think twice before you choose MindBody Online. It is horrible for small businesses.

Pros: The app works really well. That's unfortunately very hard to find. Though it functions well, it was still really limited in what it could do.

Cons: Ease of use web forms is key to gaining new leads online. Mindbody requires an outside source to even get forms on a website - you have to use healcode. Healcode breaks dowm a lot. Then, even after someone goes through the form process, it's not easy for the lead to navigate the mindbody website for the first time. I received many complaints about this.

Overall: I tracked client attendance and payments.

But when she goes to sign up for classes the app thinks she hasn't paid because she didn't use the app to pay for the membership. Is there a way around this Issue?

Then they told me that they have a no refund policy and to have a good day!

Pros: Nothing good to say. Just shocking experience and can't wait for refund and cancellation! Total negligent misrepresentation of the sale agreement as I had told the sales person of the 3 locations our business operates in and she even got the addresses of all 3 but failed to inform me that to have all 3 locations listed on Mindbody would require 3x the subscription fees!

Cons: Misrepresentation on sales call. When I demanded a refund, the customer service told me that she would help me "build a case" in the request and that it would take 7-10 days for her to find out if it is successful. Excuse me? You legally misrepresented a key term of the sales agreement and now you want me to wait for the case to be deliberated? Do you want to be sued for legal misrepresentation? When I asked to speak with her supervisor, she told me she also needs to send a request form for that and it may take days for them to get back to me. Totally agree with all other reviewers here about terrible customer service and difficulty to cancel the subscription. Really wish I never had signed up with them!

Pros: MINDBODY's scheduling features offer a great deal of flexibility, with the ability to set staff permissions, assign classes, clients, and tasks to specific staff or rooms, and offer a number of different products and price points to potential customers. Once you've assigned the appointment to a staff member, you can view the entire staff's scheduling on a columnar chart and easily edit appointments with a click or a drag

Cons: MINDBODY is a comprehensive piece of software, with numerous tabs and features to navigate. Many users complained that MINDBODY was overly complicated and difficult to use

Pros: Branded web looks great, and great tech support available round the clock. I have nothing more good to say.

Cons: Do NOT use this product if you are a doing single session appointments. It is set up for fitness classes. With the branded web features, that make it look pretty, there are a lot of problems, that the support team doesn't know about. You are taught to build something from scratch, test it, and then are not warned that actually a lot of what you've build doesn't transfer to branded web. Also, a lot of their features just don't work. For example, their default welcome email (that you send to clients you have made accounts for) doesn't work!!!! It took 2 hour of tech support to come with a basic solution. When I asked for compensation for the time wasted, they said no, and my only option was to cancel. For classes, it's probably great - but know there are still many problems within the system. They obviously have a big tech support team, because they have a lot of technical problems within their system. This has just clearly become acceptable to them to have. For the money we are being asked to spend, I disagree.

Pros: Easy to use, since it is very basic.
Tough to quit, since they don't return calls.
Easy to sign up, still trying to quit.

Cons: It is very basic.
It is expensive.
The mindbody community is not a selling point.
Not practical for a sole practitioner trying to keep costs down.
You are better off paying a higher percentage per transaction. (+1.5%)
All other components can be provided for free and with better charts.
Customer service is my biggest gripe with them.
VERY tough to get them on the phone.
To this day I am trying to get a hold of their department to cancel my subscription.
Which conveniently for them operates on a separate schedule (closes at 3:30pm PST)
Today for example I called in and waited for 4 hours (until 3:30) with no call back.
Tomorrow might be the same. Woohoo.

I put mindbody in the same category as COMCAST.
That is pretty bad company to have.
Easy to get in, like pulling teeth to get out.
Nothing inspires less confidence in a user than that kind of membership model.
It will not serve them well, and I will refer away from them when possible.

The software is good, but I feel like it could be better.

Pros: I like that the software is easy to use for every day tasks like scheduling appointments, etc. I also like that we've been using the software for several years so there is a lot of data to geek out on.

Cons: There are a lot of unresolved issues/glitches with the software. 50% of the time when calling tech support the person lacks the knowledge to assist with the issue or gives a generic "it's a known problem, we have a work order in to fix it". Many of these "work order" items have yet to be fixed (some existing for 8+ months). My concern is these issues reflect poorly on our business as our customers assume it's a Gymnazo error not a Mindbody problem. We are very client oriented and want to give our clients the best experience here at Gymnazo, this includes the easy of scheduling.
Another concern is efficiency. I run the KPI reporting and it's a long mundane process to gather all of the information we need for our business meetings. I don't trust the Mindbody reports and feel that I am constantly auditing them to ensure we have accurate data.

I love the ease and price of the software. Clients love it as well.

Pros: Broad scope of functionality - scheduling, sales reporting. MBO is not just a software system. They are about helping the business with all things related, i.e. marketing, staffing, etc. They are consistently working on the next best enhancements!

Cons: I wish there was an easier way for family reservations, a one step process to select the family members and schedule them with 1 click.

Overall: Reporting, business overview of what's important. We are a small studio so having an easy and reliable scheduling system is a must for our cycling classes.
