Nice, but there are others that give you more bang for the buck

Pros

Interface and functionality works well. It allows you to do be very organized in building your student base.

Cons

While it has a lot of functionality there are is a lot that some users may not use and thus may be a bit high price for schools that do not have a lot of students.

Very complicated to get started with, overcomplicated steps to perform simple tasks, software issues

ability to take attendance and have member information in one place, although accessing it takes multiple steps because the database is not user friendly

Pros

The calendar feature is the best! Scheduling on the calendar and then being able to transfer those contacts directly to members if they enroll is very usefull, although it takes about a million steps because everything is overcomplicated in this program

Cons

Has some software issues that renders the statistics feature and the client survey features so inaccurate that they are practically useless. i have contacted the support crew about the issue on May 11th 2018 and have been messaging them every time the problem interferes with my work (which is practically every other day) and the issue is still not resolved. it is June 25th and i am still waiting for a solution, very unsatisfied. Many other features are over complicated making it annoying or difficult to do what you are trying to do. There is a steep learning curve because they made the whole program so complicated to use so it is not very user friendly. They try to make up for that by making tutorial videos that are upwards of 20 minutes long, but if they simplified their features while maintaining all of their functions the database would be soo much better. I dont know about most people, but i do not have to watch hours of tutorial videos to use complex designing/editing software i have never used before, so i do not understand why it is a pre requisite for this program.

Rainmaker is a great system to use!

Pros

Rainmaker is fairly simple and easy to navigate. It is extremely user friendly even for the newest users!

Cons

Every once in while there will be an error and the system won't work properly. However, this is normal with any system so not much of a con.

Did this on a trial basis. The UI was nice, but learning curve was not so easy.

Pros

Nice UI. Once you learn how to use the system it flows nicely and has a lot of nice features that you can use.

Cons

Trying to learn the system can be a bit much. As a martial arts instructor you need to be able to quickly learn the system and be able to teach it to your staff without having to depend on the company to explain it.

Overall it's been a really good experience. It allows me to analyze my business & member behavior.

Retention rates, financial reports, prospect manager.

Pros

I love the System of people starting as an inquiry then becoming a prospect and then becoming a member. I also like the home screen and how it gives me a financial outlook all in one screen.

Cons

I hate the calendar. It is extremely hard to use and I don't because of that. I wish it were more user friendly and allowed me to repeat the appointments instead of entering them individually

Love Rainmaker! I was with another major database for years. This blows it away!

Customer service is fantastic! The learning curve is always a challenge but with the great video tutorials and easy access to customer service we are already taking advantage of so much of what Rainmaker has to offer.

Great Software

This is a great Martial Arts software! We have tried many and haven't found any that could fit our needs as much as RainMaker does. I did not give a 5 star review only because there are a few things that are not set up exactly how we would like them. An example would be the profit generator forms, we would like more information from our clients when the fill the forms out. Other than a few little things though, it is great!

RainMaker Rocks

Over the past 15 years I have used several companies for student management and billing. I'm glad that the search is over because I found the best. Rm is easy to use and has excellent customer service. The smartest choice I've made in years.

Amazing Software!

I have used Rainmaker now for over a year after switching from what I believed to be a similar software. Not only was my transition smooth, but the software far exceeds my expectations. They functionality is great. The support you get from the Rainmaker team is second to none and the price is well within expectation for a software of this caliper. Out of the many decisions I have made and regret, this is NOT one of them. I highly recommend this software. Thanks Rainmaker!

Best martial arts software I've ever used!

From the well-designed dashboard to the ease of data entry to the tons of reports available, my staff and I are thrilled with RainMaker software. And with the ability to collect tuition and set up ongoing profit generators, it pays for itself every month. I'm so glad I have RainMaker on my team!

Rainmaker Karate School Program to run my Dojo

I have been in business more than 30 years. I have used to run my dojo from Martial Arts Dojo, Data Belt, Member Solutions, Independent Funding Company and others. Rainmaker has brought everything together from enrolling, texting, emailing, billing, to saying Happy Birthday to students. Their customer service is second to none, excellent. They will listen to you. All I have to do is teach classes.

Rainmaker is a HUGE time saver!

Rainmaker has saved us so much time with keeping track of students, ranks, accounts, payments, testing, attendance, employee time, students giving feedback, etc. If there is anything that you need to do that you can't figure out they will take care of it and make sure you can do it as well. The customer service is quick and thorough. There is nothing we have found that we need that Rainmaker can't do for us!
