Why you need a single, unified storefront…
Imagine getting your bill at a restaurant and being asked to pay the cook separate from the waiter. It’s absurd, but actually this is how many pools are run. Different people collect money in different ways. All these miscellaneous streams of income can add up to thousands each year.
Think about how much Swim Team, Tennis, and Social each bring into your club. These are essentially products in a business. If you had to audit your club right now to see how much each of these products brought in, could you do it easily? Is your Tennis Director still holding onto checks from last quarter? Does your Social Director still have $250 in cash from an event last month?
We give every Board Member a real-time overview of shop sales. We restrict the deeper reporting to your Treasurer or other approved admin, but we think it’s important every Board Member get a sense of how the club is doing sales-wise.
Example: If your Social Committee has a budget of $2,500 and they spend it all by August 1, the parties are over for the summer. Unless it’s obvious from your Board Member Dashboard that Social actually brought in plenty of revenue over the summer, thus offsetting their total expenses.
