Automated text-messaging functionality is now available through Engage on both of our club management and billing software solutions, i4 and Compete. Powered by Textmunication, which was recognized in CIOReview's ranking of the "20 Most Promising Digital Marketing Solution Providers of 2018", Engage has been under API development and is now fully integrated with both i4 and Compete, giving all of our customers the ability to better market their facilities, drive sales, and improve their recurring dues collection rates with SMS.
Speaking on the new automated functionality, Verena Rohde at The Club in Kona notes that with "auto-messaging, [there's] less manual follow-up, less room for error, [and more] time that can be spent on membership services." Maximum Fitness Vacaville used automated SMS to run a Family Add-On promotion, yielding 20 new members and more than 30 personal training orientations.
Jonas Fitness became an integrated partner with Textmunication in 2016 with the Compete platform. In partnership with Textmunication, we'll be adding Rich Communication Services (RCS) as an enhancement in early 2019. RCS will allow for rich images, multi-media, and video to be included in text messages. Textmunication is also looking at developing a mechanism to trigger alerts based on specific member behavior.
