Six years ago when I decided to leave the company I had worked so hard for and venture out to start my own company it felt very daunting. I needed help with a web page, advertising, a trust worthy payment system and ability to book online, I needed to create a web ‘presence’ I wanted it to look modern and professional. I am so pleased I found NEARYOU. Three years into running my own business I was nominated for a national award thanks to the help and support I’ve had from NEARYOU. I take great pride in my independent reviews and if you are thinking of growing your own business rather than slaving away for somebody else’s NEARYOU will get you there!

Pros

I like the NEARYOU gallery of photos, you can choose an image to advertise an activity.

Cons

When they update their system it can change how you input data, but if I need help learning new ways of doing things the staff are always quick to guide and support me.

All good so far!

Found lockdown and live streaming good prompts to sort out online booking and since doing this I have used NearYou.best more to good effect - thank you.

Pros

Online booking is a breeze as is re-scheduling bookings. Message function is helpful both to me and my clients. Easy to set up class passes and offers and the regular reports including for tax purposes are very helpful, especially to a sole operator. Live streaming also very easy through the platform, and the set up instructions were excellent. I can always access human support too if I need it which is very useful too. ...and I like that the software is always moving forward.

Cons

I'm still exploring the software and haven't yet reached any insurmountable barriers to what I wish to accomplish so it's all good so far! I would obviously like even more clients via the site, but I know that I could use the marketing/social media functions more effectively. Any chance that it could be easier to see who's coming to class on my mobile?

NearYou.best Club Management Must

NearYou.best has helped me set up an online platform for my club, and I am very happy with the results.

Pros

The software is incredibly easy to use and allows you to personalise your club page to best represent you. The marketing and online booking system is superb and since COVID I have found to be a necessity. The NearYou.best support team offers great support, are very helpful and consider the needs of your club to make the software work for you. Very satisfied!

Cons

I would like more specifics about the person booking classes, name of the student, Adult or Child, age, etc

Helping me with my business needs

I have a great relationship with the back office staff at NearYou.best. They are so helpful and encouraging especially when I don't know how to add info/classes to my page. They were a god send during lockdown as it was nice to actually speak to someone on the phone.

Pros

I like the software as it is easy to use and I have control over the bookings. There are lots of features on the Near You site that I find very helpful, especially during the COVID crisis. There are guides that help with more technical areas of the software which are very helpful and the staff at Near You are incredible at answering my questions regarding bookings etc.

Cons

I would like to see a feature where you can upload Par-Q's which have to be completed before a client's first booking can be made.

Reasons for Choosing NearYou.best

I chose this company as they have a good reputation on Feefo.

Reasons for Switching to NearYou.best

I didn't get much help setting up the software.
