Jonas Leisure has been named as the exclusive distributor of Udio’s school and course management software, which is designed to connect swim schools and aquatic facilities with the parents of young swimmers online in real time.

The Australian-made course management program can help swim schools focus on essential swimming and water safety skills, rather than administration and data entry, according to Jonas Leisure General Manager Mike Henton.

Henton said updates to personal details, payments, bookings and even class check-in can be handled online with Udio, often by customers themselves. It functions online and is mobile friendly, allowing courses and classes to be administered in real time.

Udio was developed in close consultation with the Australian swim school industry to ensure it met the needs of swim schools and their communities, said Udio Systems General Manager Sue Doncon.

“Udio was developed to overcome issues with existing solutions. We sat down with swim schools and worked out how to get really accurate reports and make sure payments, reports and bookings were easy and efficient — the way they should be.”

She said swim schools using Udio had saved a significant amount of administration time by enabling customers to manage bookings and membership themselves. One swim school organisation conducting 20,000 lessons per week had seen around 4000 transactions per week completed online, saving valuable time on phone calls and face-to-face transactions.

“After seeing what Udio could do, we had to share the benefits,” Henton said. “For parents, Udio gives easy insights into bookings, and an easier way to sign up. For swim schools, it can streamline their business. The outcome will be efficient swim schools that are well equipped to provide communities with swimming and water safety skills.”

He said Udio’s online interface would also make it easier for managers to administer swim school and water safety programs across multiple sites such as regional and school pools.
