Midland, TX (PRWEB) October 3, 2009
Milestone School of Modern Music is a music studio that offers private lessons for guitar, bass guitar, drums, voice, and piano. Instructors at Milestone School take an individualized approach with students, teaching methods for achieving their unique goals in a fun and personal way. Maintaining friendly relations with their students is top priority, but that was becoming a bit of a challenge as a result of last minute cancellations and no shows. "Our biggest problem was that we were not being compensated, which forced us into a position of having to hunt people down and be very stern in order to get paid for our time," explains Milestone Music School owner, Luke McDonald. "The eSoft Planner software, of course, is helping us make that a thing of the past."
Created for small to mid-size companies with multiple scheduling and planning needs, eSoft Planner offers seven modules designed to manage the operations side of businesses such as music companies, sports facilities, fitness centers, spas and salons, photographers and more. Modules include Location Rentals, Lesson/Appointments, Packages, Leagues, Memberships, Camps/Classes and Point of Sale. Each module allows customers to schedule lessons and pay online in real-time, anytime; increasing customer convenience, eliminating unnecessary phone calls and administrative tasks, and saving businesses thousands of dollars through features like service consolidation and group rates on online transactions. eSoft Planner is customizable to clients' individual needs, never requires software upgrades and can be used as individual modules or grouped together as a package.
Milestone School of Modern Music is utilizing eSoft Planner's Lessons and Packages modules. With these modules, students sign up and pay for private music lessons and music lesson packages online and in real-time. eSoft Planner's email system provides immediate receipts and confirmations to both students and employees, and sends automatic reminders as lessons approach; resulting in a drastic reduction of last minute cancellations and no-shows. Electronic funds transfers (EFTs) are deposited daily through eSoft Planner's secure online retail partnership with Authorize.net; keeping revenue steady throughout the month. Luke McDonald is enthusiastic about the benefits of eSoft Planner, stating, "By having a pre-paid system, we now have control over the money that we are owed and since the system is fully automated we have an incredible amount of free time to handle other areas of our business."
