A big question that everyone wants to know is how do people easily manage larger sports facilities, like a baseball facility with multiple services? In this post, we’ll walk you through how one of our customers, MVP, did it at their facility with the help of eSoft Planner’s batting cage scheduling software.
MVP Case Study
MVP started their business several years ago with nine batting cages. They focused mainly on scheduling batting cages. Customers could book their cages or a group of their cages (for example, book cages 1 through 3). Since they used sublocations at their facility, facility management was incredibly important to them. They started using eSoft Planner’s software to more easily manage their facility.
With eSoft Planner’s help, MVP started branching out into more services for their customers. Their first step was adding instructors. With their new instructors, they could dedicate certain cages specifically for lessons. Adding lessons to their list of services helped grow their business. Their next steps involved adding camps, packages, and memberships to build their offerings even more. Finally, they added point of sale to sell apparel, drinks, and snacks to their clients.
Since cash flow problems are the biggest reason why sports facilities fail, diversifying your services like MVP did by adding multiple different offerings can be essential. New programming like camps and lessons can also generate more revenue. The business can receive payment for each person involved in the camp/lesson, versus a flat rate for a rental. Also, MVP could easily manage all of these services with eSoft Planner’s system; they didn’t need to spend a lot of time managing these services.
MVP grew with the help of our software. Each new service they added was easily managed by our software, allowing them to grow their business while saving them both time and money. To learn more about how eSoft Planner’s batting cage scheduling software, request a demo with one of our experts.
