Frequently Asked Questions
No more wondering: Get the answers you're looking for.
How does Studio Martial Arts Manager compare to other popular studio management programs?
Studio Martial Arts Manager has considerable advantages in two main areas:
No fine print with hidden costs
No unnecessary, very expensive "modules" with limited use functionality
The industry standard for this type of software is for companies to get their "foot in the door"
with low prices and then charge per member, either active or INACTIVE. You can verify this by reviewing
the fine print on other sites. Studio Martial Arts Manager has no fine print, no hidden costs, no surprises:
it is simply a valuable suite of tools you will wonder how you lived without for an exceptional price.
Another common scenario concerns "add-on" modules and features. The introductory price for their "skeleton" program
sounds somewhat reasonable. However, after using their programs unfortunately it is found that the basic program may
not offer the functionality needed for everyday use. So you end up purchasing add-on modules which skyrocket the price -
and which may have too many features that will never be used.
Studio Martial Arts Manager's standard program includes all of the functionality you need to run your school efficiently,
simply and effectively both now and as you grow.
Why do we offer both web-based and desktop-based software?
We at Studio understand our users' needs. Many martial art schools function out of various satellite locations
and/or function without internet access. Should these martial art schools be excluded from using Studio Martial Art Manager
to build their business simply because they do not have access to the internet? No! So, Studio decided from the
very beginning that having the choice between a stand-alone program and a web-based program was not just a luxury, but a necessity!
What are the benefits of a web-based program?
A web based program allows for additional flexibility and security of Studio Martial Arts Manager.
Since we are constantly listening to the market and looking to see where we can improve, any updates
or additional feature will be more easily accessible via the desktop version.
In addition, one of the conveniences and security measures of the web based program is automatic data backup via an off-site
server. Should something happen to your main computer, all of your data (and personal information from your students) is safe.
This auto-save feature is only available via the web-based program.
What are the benefits of a stand alone desktop based program?
Some schools (and business owners) are hesitant to have internet access available to employees. This is due to
unauthorized surfing, and
The stand alone software will not require internet access, thus eliminating these two issues.
Is it difficult to get started?
It is our job to make sure your start up process is simple. Whether you have never used a martial arts
software program or have used many in the past, Studio Martial Arts Manager is easy to install and use
for the novice and the professional alike.
Can my current data be imported into Studio Martial Arts Manager?
With the exception of a few types of data, the majority of current data will transfer to Studio Martial Arts
Manager directly to avoid unnecessary data entry.
On the web-based program, is my information secure?
When using the web-based version of Studio Martial Arts Manager, your data is automatically backed up to a
secure off-site server . As you may imagine, these companies are world-renowned and have state-of-the-art
security measures in place. It is what we use to protect our own data from our schools.
Studio Gurus is different than any other company in the market. Why?
We are owned and operated by martial artists and small business owners who understand firsthand
the type of data and simplicity needed to grow our businesses.
We are also users of the program ourselves. As such, we experience exactly what our customers experience.
After trying other martial software programs on the market, it was quickly understood how poor service, technical
difficulties and fine print with hidden fees only made our daily tasks that much more difficult... and took time away
from doing what we love to do best.
So we created a company centered around what we as owners know to be most critical... usable data combined with the
greatest efficiency and simplicity all at a price that costs less than one new student per month.
Being "end users" ourselves has one more big advantage and that is the continual focus on our customers. As needs
in the market change we will listen and add features based upon feedback because these will benefit our schools as well.
One final note is that we do not believe in customer satisfaction. That means nothing. We don't want our customers to
merely be satisfied. We wholeheartedly believe that customer loyalty is the goal. We want to be of such value in service,
features and price that our customers stay ours... forever.
The owners of Studio Gurus are committed to focusing on excellence for our customers. Always.
