I need an app, how do I go about it?
OK, so you need a mobile app, but getting an app developed is an expensive undertaking which will consume major resources in not just money but time and effort, assuming you have the skills for such a project. You need an app that reflects your brand and values and integrates with your existing IT infrastructure and marketing tools, but a bespoke development is not affordable and dilutes your focus on your business.
The answer is an off-the-shelf solution designed specifically for leisure operators which has huge flexibility and customisation built-in. This makes it affordable and yet allows you to adapt the look-and-feel and functionality to your brand and requirements. All of the content is controlled by you through the web and if the solution is hosted there are no IT headaches.
Better still, if it’s tightly integrated with your member management system it can deliver a personalised experience for your users, showing pricing and availability appropriate to their membership, their bookings, etc. If you’re not thinking about a mobile app now, you should be – check out MobilePro, it ticks all the boxes and is loved by Ops directors, IT teams and Marketing. Over 50 of Gladstone's biggest customers now have apps through MobilePro covering over 400 sites and almost 500,000 of their users have downloaded their apps.
