Fully Automated Member Sign Up

Australian Fitness Kiosks LogoEver since 24-hour gyms started making their mark on the fitness and leisure industry, gyms owners have been looking for ways to stay ahead of their competitors, reduce overheads while at the same time appealing to new demographics of customers.

While those with busy lives and shift workers have embraced the flexibility that being a member of a 24-hour gym offers, a number of these potential customers have found it hard to attend the gym during staffed hours to sign up. After all, for a large number of Australians that work uncertain shifts or mainly have time off late at night, finding the time to book in an appointment to sign up to the gym and carry out the required paperwork with a member of staff in the gym during staffed hours, may be difficult.

Ever since 24-hour gyms started making their mark on the fitness and leisure industry, gyms owners have been looking for ways to stay ahead of their competitors, reduce overheads while at the same time appealing to new demographics of customers.

While those with busy lives and shift workers have embraced the flexibility that being a member of a 24-hour gym offers, a number of these potential customers have found it hard to attend the gym during staffed hours to sign up. After all, for a large number of Australians that work uncertain shifts or mainly have time off late at night, finding the time to book in an appointment to sign up to the gym and carry out the required paperwork with a member of staff in the gym during staffed hours, may be difficult.

From a business owners perspective, it is always a challenge when deciding on what hours you will have staff at the gym for signups; you want to ensure that there are staff members on site for times when signups are expected, however, it is not financially viable to have staff on 24 hours a day without having a blowout of associated staff wages.

24/7, New Member Signups

Now there is a solution that will mean that new members can sign up to the gym at any time, even outside of staffed hours without even entering the gym. The team at Australian Fitness Kiosks have developed a range of fully automated smart signup kiosks which are designed to be installed outside the gym. Not only can new members sign up on the spot 24 hours a day, but the entire signup process is fully automated. This means that the member induction, medical disclaimer, Debit Success direct debit agreement, initial payment as well as safety inductions are carried out simply and easily as using an ATM. At the end of the induction, after all relevant documentation has been electronically signed, the new members’ photo has been taken and payment approved, the member is issued with their 24-hour access fob and can start using the gym straight away.

Casual member passes can be issued ensuring that potential members that only need single use of the gym, or a pack of casual passes can also sign up on the spot. Each time that a member uses one of their casual passes, the smart kiosk communicates with the ClubWare member management system, debiting that visit against the members casual pass account. This full integration with the gym management CRM which is carried out in real time means that only valid members can get access to the gym, existing gym members can even top up their account and change payment details from the Kiosk in real time.

This truly is a revolutionary innovation which will help to maximise the opportunity to attract new members, provide members a way to update payment details on the spot while removing the need to overcapitalise on staffing hours.
