Fitli Product Updates – June 2017

To wait or not to wait… that is the question… the question you will have to ask yourself after this release.

Wait no more.  Waitlist is here.

We are super excited to launch the next big booking enhancement in as many months.  Only 3 weeks ago, we launched the first iteration of Check In.  It’s a very simple approach to start with.  A class is full.  A customer gets added to waitlist.  If a spot opens due to either cancellation or change in capacity, everybody on the waitlist gets notified.  At that point it’s first come first serve to book the open spot.  We wish you many full classes.

Edit to your hearts content

As always, we hear you and respond with changes. There are many places in the software that were once un-editable either after saving or, in the case of a session, after the session occurred.  Starting today, you will be able to edit pretty much anything about a session at any time.  That includes capacity, instructor, clients, check in, and facility.  With great power comes great responsibility.  In other words, be careful. We’ll help where we can, but it’s in your hands now. 🙂

Don’t forget. Save money with our new Annual Billing option

Many of you may still be on a Free Trial.  Others are on a Monthly Billing Plan.  We are introducing Annual pricing.  Of course, you save money by going Annual.  So, if you are pretty happy and expect to be with us a while, the Annual Plan may be a good option.  See the Annual Pricing options at the Pricing Section of the website. Then, if interested, just send a message to support@fitli.com to let us know you’d like to change.

More on chat and support

Last time we talked about the new chat feature.  We have decided to invest further in this capability and started moving our entire support process to the new system. Starting today, you will see links to the new FAQ.  We will also be able to point you to articles and videos right there in the chat box.  We do still need to sleep once in a while, so we can’t guarantee we’ll be there to answer 24/7, but we’ll always respond to you as soon as possible.  Visit the new Helpdesk!

Using Your Smartphone For Tennis

The smartphone has revolutionized how we do business and organize our lives. Here at Fitli we believe that being mobile-friendly is the key to success and can be applied to every aspect of your life. In this post we look at how the smartphone can be used to enhance one of the world’s most popular sports: tennis.

Scheduling a Match

Here at Fitli we believe that finding the time to exercise is a vital part of success. Scheduling a match is often the most frustrating part of tennis as you need to find a game to fit your busy work schedule. Smartphones can be used in a number of ways from finding local tennis clubs to creating tennis groups with your friends.

One site that you may want to invest some time in visiting is the Global Tennis Network. Love Tennis Blog states that the site is the biggest tennis database in the world, operating in 80 countries with over 1600 networks and over 55,000 players. The Global Tennis Network is mobile friendly making it a convenient way to find and book a tennis match.

Live Scores

The smartphone has changed the way we interact with our favorite sports. Can you remember a time when you didn’t have instant access to every match result? The APT/WTA Live app is considered to be the best apps for keeping up with the latest results from every tennis tournament across the globe.

The next big tournament is the Wimbledon Championships this July and tennis fans will be looking to keep up with the scores.  In Dan Weston’s preview of the tournament, a feature article he wrote for British news website Betfair Tennis, he believes that Andy Murray is the player to beat in the tournament. A live score app like APT/WTA Live will ensure that no match is missed, and you’ll be able to keep up to date with Murray’s matches in real time.

Training

Finding a tennis coach can be expensive and inconvenient. Smartphone technology has made sports coaching more accessible. It is now possible to use your phone as a virtual coach. For example,  smartphone advice site Android Headlines recommend the app Tennis Training. The app includes video tutorials on different shots and techniques as well as detailed workouts that go from beginner to advanced level.

You can also get live feedback from your performance using a variety of special gadgets that links directly to your smartphone. These can include everything from sensors that attach to the end of your racket to monitor your racket swing, speed, and power, to sensors in your shoe that calculate the number of calories burned and distance covered. When it comes to improving your tennis game the smartphone is an invaluable tool.

Entertainment

Sometimes you won’t have time to get to a court but will still have that need to play tennis. There are plenty of tennis games available on smartphones that allow you to indulge in your tennis requirements. FreeApps For Me created a list of the 15 best tennis games available that include a large selection of simulations. No matter where you are a game of tennis will at your fingertips.
