In our last newsletter we announced our partnership with School Empower School Management System and we got tons of responses, but also some questions about what differeniates School Empower from the many other School Management systems.
#1: SCHOOL EMPOWER CARES...
about YOUR BUSINESS and YOUR SUCCESS, not just about our success. We won't nickel and dime you out of every feature we offer. We don't charge you for training seminars. We won't form partnerships with companies like SPA FINDER and force you to take their GIFT CERTIFICATES. We care because School Empower is technology that we developed with Dance Studio owners and, like studio owners, we are passionate about delivering the BEST, EASIEST and most AFFORDABLE technology we can.
#2: SCHOOL EMPOWER CARES...
about our community. We are passionate about others who don't have what we have. That is why we are donating $2 every month from our subscribers to THE COVENANT HOUSE: an organization that helps homeless teens have a life. These teens are abused, living on the street and are hopeless. I have visited and been involved with this organization for two years and the work they do is nothing short of miraculous.
In this day and age, where our kids are fortunate to have the opportunites to dance, we feel it is important to help those kids that don't. For every subsribers we have, we donate $2/month. for only 1000 subscribers, that's $24,000 per year! Besides food and shelter, Covenant House educates, trains, and helps teens live a productive live, many of whom go on to work at Covenant House helping other homeless teens.
SCHOOL EMPOWER GIVES BACK TO OUR STUDIO COMMUNITY TOO
After we reach our annual goal of $25,000, School Empower will start a scholarship fund for our dance studios neediest. We want all our dance studios to be able to offer needy children in their area a chance to experience a year of dance class. At the end of the year, each studio will let us know they want to participate in our scholarship drawing, and we will provide $500 scholarships to as many studios as we can. Studios will be selected from a random drawing on or about December 1.
#3: SCHOOL EMPOWER IS EASY:
School Empower was built on the newest web technology with world class design influence. We are the most intuitive school management system in the world. We were built for people without a technology background, so that you can spend less time learning technology, and more time doing what you want to do: teach.
#4: SCHOOL EMPOWER IS EVOLVING:
As we get more studios to provide us feedback, we will continue to roll out new features. Coming soon are:
- Recital Scheduler
- Costume purchaser
- Studio Merchandise online Store
- Competition scheduler
- and more!
We are rolling out these features so that we can be sure that we have all the requirements for each one and that all our code is stable.
#5: YOU DON"T NEED A WEBSITE TO USE SCHOOL EMPOWER:
School Empower is built with a full homepage, images and logos so if you can't afford to have a website, or don't have the time to manage a website, you don't need one. School Empower's homepage can look exactly the way you want it to with your class photos and logos.
#6: SCHOOL EMPOWER IS FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE:
You can completely customize your semesters, ages, levels and categories. Offer semester based or drop in classes. Many types of discounts and session packs are available. Create your own. Combine them. School Empower is flexible and EASY to set up based on your studio business model.
#7: SCHOOL EMPOWER HAS CLASS AND FACULTY DESCRIPTIONS:
No other school management system has the ability to add teacher and class photoes, teach and class descriptions. School Empower makes it easy for your students to find the perfect class and enroll online. If you don't want online enrollment? No problem! You can easily disable that feature.
