4. Determine the date of the change
- Experience has shown that it is best to schedule the changeover for the beginning of the week (i.e. Monday) or directly after the company vacations. This allows you to use the weekend or the company vacations to make the final preparations.
- Ideally, you keep your existing software ready for another 1–2 months.
5. Inform early!
- Inform your members about the change and how to use SportsNow, for example, as follows:
Great news: We will soon be using SportsNow booking software. Starting <date>, this will allow you to easily book your lessons and passes on your phone using the SportsNow app or on the web.
You will receive your personal SportsNow login via email in the next few days, which you can use to sign up and get started right away. Make sure to save this email and the login data. Check your spam folder if the email is not in your inbox.
Once you have received your login:
Download the SportsNow app from the App Store on your smartphone and sign in to SportsNow with your login. Book your lessons in the app and receive information via push message directly to your smartphone.
If you have any questions, we are of course at your disposal. In the HelpCenter you will also find numerous instructions to help you use SportsNow: https://help.sportsnow.com

Using SportsNow is very easy for your members. However, experience has shown that questions often arise in the first few weeks. We therefore recommend that you schedule time to answer these questions, e.g. before or after a class.
