Is Swimming a Wimp Sport?

Some say it is.  But Dusty Hickman says it ain’t:

His words: “It’s been told that swimming is a wimp sport, but I don’t see it. We don’t get timeouts! In the middle of a race we can’t stop and catch our breath; we can’t roll on our stomachs and lie there; and we can’t ask for a substitution.”

Running a swim school is also not for wimps. Swim ClassJuggler for swim school management can help!

Creating New Communication Entries

Customer Communications Tracker 101: How to manually enter customer info

As mentioned in our previous blog, ClassJuggler’s Customer Communications Tracker will create all of the tracking records for communication activities that are auto-generated. But for all other communications, like incoming or outgoing phone calls, external emails, packages sent/received, and others, you can optionally add your own tracker records – useful for connecting front-desk activities with your customer records in ClassJuggler.

Once you are in the Customer Communications Tracker, just click the “Add New Communication Entry” button, which takes you to a blank form screen where you can select the type of item you want to track, and then enter details of that customer communication:

Figure 1- Adding a new customer communication tracker record

With each new record you add, ClassJuggler sets the date and time for you. But if you are noting a customer call or discussion from an earlier time, simply change the date or time of the tracker entry to when the communication activity actually occurred.

To learn the key features of the Customer Communication Tracker, and how to use them, sign in to your ClassJuggler account, and go to the ClassJuggler help screen for the tracker. Or contact us and we can answer your questions or walk you through it.

Gain quick access to all your customer’s communications

The ClassJuggler Customer Communications Tracker screen allows your school’s assigned administrators to view, create, and manage customer communications for all  activities related to a customer either generated in ClassJuggler or elsewhere.

Much like expensive customer CRM (customer relationship management) software solutions, the included ClassJuggler customer communications tracker helps you see all of the touch points for each of your customers.

How the Customer Communications Tracker helps you run your business:

Tracking all communication with your customers can be important during a dispute. For example: “Hey, I never got an an account statement (or late payment notice, or other reminder) from your school!”

The communication tracker is especially helpful when you have several administrative users. For example, a front desk administrator may have a conversation on the phone with a client who asks about a certain class, and then creates an entry on that customer’s account with all of the information from that call. This could help you, the owner, or an instructor, if you need to know if an important topic was discussed with a customer.

Types of Tracking Records

There are a 31 total types of communications the tool tracks for each customer (and retains for 2 years from the date of entry). 23 of these are generated automatically when you perform various actions, like:

  • Sending a mass email
  • Texting all parents of a certain class
  • Emailing an account statement to a single customer.

…and many more. Here is a handful of the communications ClassJuggler tracks (get the full list here):

  • Forgotten password email sent to customer via the Customer Self-Service Center sign-in screen
  • Customer Self-Service Center thank you email sent to a customer that self-registers
  • Customer Self-Service Center online order item completed by an administrator
  • Customer Self-Service Center online order item added to a wait list by an administrator
  • Invoice email sent to all customers from a selected invoice billing cycle
  • Invoice email sent to an individual customer from a selected invoice

  • Account statement sent to an individual customer from their transactions screen
  • Payment receipt sent to customers with successful payments after running a batch payment billing cycle

There are also 8 types of communications you can manually log for customers,things like:

  • Incoming or outgoing phone calls
