Friendly Manager offers our club a streamline booking/management system with the added extras such as linking with Xero and enabling reconciliation of fees to be effortless. This system also allows our members to book their own classes and manage their own accounts, something that our members love. The team at Friendly Manager are always working on improvements, are continually updating with great helpful additions, and are always on hand to help. By moving to Friendly Manager we have significantly reduced our administrative workload, which has in turn enabled us to focus our efforts on other activities, thanks Friendly Manager.

We are into our third term on Friendly Manager at Rimutaka Gymsports and we love it. We used to handle paper enrollments three times, between class rolls, national affiliation databases and then into Xero for invoicing. Now it is one entry into Friendly Manager (which members do themselves) and all the rest is done automatically. We can also manage children easily across classes, into new classes and across terms really easily. I can see in the office numbers across all classes and it synchs to Xero and all invoicing and payment easily.

Friendly Manager has been perfect for our club, Hutt Valley Gymnastics, on so many levels. It is super easy to use, has made our paper war disappear completely and the interaction between Friendly Manager and XERO is seamless. Having invoices created automatically and duplicated in XERO saves us so much time and energy. Also with members registering online each term my administrative team have time to breathe.

I highly recommend Karl and this club management software system.

Tauranga City Basketball have been using Friendly Manager for just over a year to manage their Representative and Navigators players. The system has allowed us to manage their fees and attendance in an easy and hassle-free way. All our Managers have especially enjoyed the ability to take attendance on their phones and send bulk emails to their teams in seconds, and they have all found it very simple to learn.
Friendly Manager is compatible with Zero which has allowed the systems to work together to reduce some of the administrative and banking tasks within our organisation.
Karl and his team are great guys that go the extra mile to help and explain their system. Nothing is too much trouble and their professional but “Friendly” approach is really appreciated. We have, and would again happily recommend the system to any club looking for a great online system.
