Chester, VA (PRWEB) October 13, 2009
Extreme Performance Academy is an impressive 20,000 square foot sports facility that specializes in baseball and softball training for individuals as well as teams. While the facility is obviously quite large, with a 2,500 square foot conditioning area, 50 x 120 foot open fielding area, and numerous batting cages, clay pitcher's mounds and batter's boxes, what truly makes Extreme Performance Academy stand out is its exemplary staff. Sports conditioning, baseball lessons and baseball clinics are sure to be unparalleled with a staff consisting of five retired Major League Baseball players, college level athletes and coaches, and graduates from the CJW Sports Medicine Program.
Running a sports facility of this magnitude is sure to be a big job, but for Lisa Baker, the owner of Extreme Sports Academy, a little pre-planning got her off to a smooth start, "I knew that in order to run my business proficiently, I would need a management software program. After over a month of researching, I decided on eSoft Planner." 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 sports facilities, music companies, 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.
Extreme Performance Academy utilizes eSoft Planner's Lesson, Camp/Class, League and Location Rental scheduling modules, along with the Membership module and Point of Sale system, allowing Mr. Baker to manage his entire business with one system. Clients sign up and pay for baseball lessons, batting cage and field rentals, and conditioning clinics online and in real-time, while instructors manage their own schedule online as well. 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. Management easily pulls reports to track revenue, clinic loads and instructor schedules. "It's awesome," says Mr. Baker, "I love it, my clients love it and it's so user friendly that nobody has had any trouble understanding it!"
Extreme Performance Academy is dedicated to helping athletes achieve peak health and wellness while progressing to their highest level of physical and athletic ability. Along with lessons and clinics taught by a stellar staff of instructors, which includes Johnny Grub - Detroit Tigers, Dave Clay - Atlanta Braves Organization, Harry Saferight - Pittsburgh Pirates, Greg Ecroyd - Boston Red Sox, and Byron Ballard - New York Yankees; Extreme Performance Academy also offers batting cages with clay batter's boxes, pitching tunnels with clay pitcher's mounds, open fielding area, conditioning area, sprinting lane, a parent's lounge, coffee shop and pro-shop.
