FREE SOFTWARE :
- When it comes down to it, sports clubs are just like any other business; in order to succeed and keep thriving, it’s important to manage budget properly. So, when it comes down to using a free piece of software vs paying for it, choosing the free software is a given…right? Not really…
Whilst there may be some software out there that’s genuinely free to use, with the majority of members management software that we’ve come across, the word ‘free’ has just been used as a marketing tactic. The surprises then come arrive once you’re on board; additional costs, limited members; you name it, we’ve seen it. Users think they’re signing up to free software, then they end up paying more than they’d first anticipated further down the line.
PAID FOR SOFTWARE : - With paid-for software, most of the time, you know what you’re getting. It completely depends on the type of sports club management software you’re looking at, but with Coacha, transparency is key. And if you find software that isn’t initially transparent about their fees, it’s worth questioning as to why.
