About Mindbody

Mindbody is an all-in-one software solution for businesses within the fitness and wellness industry. The platform offers tools for client scheduling, employee management, marketing, payment processing, online booking, and more. Businesses such as fitness clubs, yoga studios, salons, and spas can manage availability, accept online bookings, check-in clients, and more from the Mindbody app. The platform helps businesses keep track of each employees' schedule and plan days accordingly.

New clients can find businesses using the Mindbody Connect app, and book services online through the app. Once a new client becomes a loyal regular, businesses can set up recurring billing and even have them join automated referral programs, to give them an incentive to invite friends.

Businesses can review and track key metrics within the Mindbody software, including revenue, sales, attendance, and client retention. This data can then be used to plan and execute marketing campaigns, bringing inactive clients back in with automated emails and text messages.

In order to aid with branding, businesses can even create a completely tailored mobile app with custom branding, so that clients receive the same familiar experience on their phones.

Works best in the boutique industry

Reviewed on 20/06/2024

Pros

*Business app is helpful for quick glances at accounts and sales
*varying reports

Cons

*This program is made for the boutique industries of estheticians, workout studios, etc. My company uses it for dog training and there are a lot of workarounds that we have to do to make the program function for us. It would be great if I owned a yoga studio but unfortunately, I don't.

No Longer Suitable for Music Teacher; Expensive for Small Businesses

I have used MindBody for nearly 15 years, both as an administrator and staff/user, and I used to work in software. I used to love them and, early on, I would frequently recommend them to colleagues - the deployment phase was exceptional.

However, they are not the company them once were - nor is their software as attractive, simple to use, or innovative as it used to be. The user-interface is very tired-looking, they are focused on up-selling to bigger clients who can afford and ignoring the smaller clients of which I am one. (Their costs are £100-450pcm basic, plus an additional £199 pcm for an almost essential mobile app, which puts it well out of range for a small business.

Probably, importantly, the functionality is also possibly geared around larger yoga, hair-salons, gyms, etc. I am a music teacher. I think it's time I looked at a more tailored music teaching option.

Pros

Excellent support at deployment stage; good customer service response times; very friendly staff; used to be market leaders; possibly good functionality but only available at premiums packages

Cons

Old-fashioned user-interface (very web v.1); very expensive; limited functionality compared to competition (good functionality only available at premiums packages); current business model seems to be selling 'tailored' mobile apps at £199 pcm, which we all know is off-the-shelf code painted a different colour and without enough modifiable options to justify the expense).

No longer market leaders; unaware of competition; mixed staff knowledge (their recent expansion means too many employees have severely limited knowledge, and I frequently get passed around 'experts' or stuck re-explaining my issues).

Alternatives Considered

Acuity Scheduling

Reasons for Switching to Mindbody

I chose MindBody 10 years ago when there weren't many better alternatives or industry-specific alternatives. There now are considerable options for music teaching software so I fear I must bid MindBody goodbye...

We've been using it for over 6 years for our business and will continue to use it.

Pros

We can schedule, run payment and keep track of all of our students in one place, it also integrates with our marketing system.

Cons

Every update the location of features changes somewhat drastically and all staff needs to start looking at where to find these features when it happens and get used to it all over again.
