Dojo Management Software – a comparison.

Whether you are just starting out or are managing an already established Dojo, using the right tools can be the difference between a GOOD Dojo and a GREAT Dojo.

Gone are the days where you have to manually write down every students’ details and having to remember if they have paid their fees. We have come up with a list of Dojo Management softwares to make it easier for you to manage your Dojo and embrace the 21st Century. Some of the features include:

Member Management

Martialytics and Dojo Expert both include a nice Student Management feature, Access to your full member contact list from anywhere makes it super easy to check the status of any member. Everything you need is in one place for Martialytics and Dojo Expert, Member contact info, billing info, emergency contacts

However, Martialytics has extra features available for you, they include waivers and individual attendance statistics. Know the full history of all your members all of the time. Another one of the cool features of Martialytics is the ability to allow the student to fill out their info, all you have to do is simply just send them an email from Martialytics, they will fill out their form and you will be able to approve them as a student.

Martialytics includes a KIOSK mode for attendance tracking where either you can tick Students as they come in or they can tick themselves. With Dojo Expert, you can print Student IDcard with QR codes that can easily be scanned to administer attendance.

General Administration

Martialytics and Dojo Expert allows you to view and perform general administrative tasks, ranging from checking the student’s join date, their medical details to Grade management. Design your own belts rankings and manage your exams results. Keep track of exams per member, enter exam requirements, store ratings and manage promotions. Just imagine – no more shuffling paper and data entry. Just take notes and grade students as you assess them, right there on the mat with a tablet.

Dojo Expert allows you to print belt certificates, you can create your own template or use one from Dojo Expert’s library.

Lead / New Member Marketing

Automate your marketing and send bulk emails. Create Automated Drip Marketing campaigns based on simple event triggers. Email your entire student list at once, or segment based on behaviour or custom segment tags. Martialytics makes it super easy to stay in touch with your school. Dojo Expert offers similar services in regards to New Member marketing and automated marketing based on certain events like Student birthday or invoice generation, student absence, new student and many more. Where Dojo Expert differs is that it allows you to integrate AtomPark which allows you to mass send SMS messages as well as emails. Both Dojo Expert and Martialytics allow you to install Lead widgets on your website for funnelling new leads.

Mobile Friendliness

Even though Martialytics currently doesn’t have a mobile application, they have a clean looking Mobile based webpage which you can access from your mobile. However, it is missing many features available to you on your desktop, it is expected that those features will be added soon.

Dojo Expert has 2 mobile applications, 1 for Attendance where students can login and mark their attendance and the 2nd app which allows the student to view their details, all their attendance history, unpaid invoices and other required information. However, Dojo Expert’s application’s interface isn’t as good as Martialytics.

Online Payments

Martialytics and Dojo Expert allows you to receive online payments through Stripe. Dojo Expert only allows Stripe on their Ultimate plan, however, you can use Paypal with the Pro or Ultimate Plan with Dojo Expert.  You can set up recurring billing with both software.

Invoices that you create inside DojoExpert can be sent to your students via email, or they can review them inside student login app.

You can also accept payments from credit cards in webshop that you set up with DojoExpert.
