When was Premier Software established?
Since 1994, Premier Software has been the centre of the spa and leisure industry, providing professional solutions to independent and group establishments across the globe.
What is the mission of the company?
Our mission statement is: To create software people want to use and respond positively to our clients’ needs.
What are your key products?
Our flagship product, CORE by Premier gives a 360° view of your business, helping to build profitability and manage day-to-day operations. It covers all business areas from front desk to back office operations, including call centre and multi-location administration.
What are your most recent software innovations?
Premier is continuously striving to improve our products by listening to our clients changing needs. Premier’s quarterly software release saw some exciting development with new payment integration to Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) for membership transactions outside the UK. Premier also enhanced its portfolio partnering with Gantner Technologies, to provide proximity access control for members and day guests.
What do you offer health clubs?
CORE by Premier is remarkably flexible. It provides health and leisure clubs with all the functionality and flexibility needed to run multiple membership schemes, increase membership numbers
and promote revenue growth. Operators can validate and track usage of their members upon entry, taking into consideration date of expiry, membership types and payments. Members can be issued with a card or their details can be entered manually. CORE integrates with access control enabling members to self swipe for fast track entry at reception, via a physical barrier or external locking device.
The members’ database allows you to analyse the profifle of an individual member and membership category. Retention and attrition ratings can also be monitored, along with memberships on hold and new member listings. CORE provides the ability to capitalise on captured client data, all enquiries can be tracked and personal correspondence can be generated for each type of enquiry, such as a membership or package information. Online membership and sign up also removes the need for paperwork and the signing of Direct Debits.
Why else should clients choose you?
CORE by Premier provides a complete solution for all leisure and spa requirements, from scheduling services and stock control to marketing. The flexible design and single database structure can be tailored to meet the requirements of a multi-site group or stand alone site. CORE offers a comprehensive online suite including web booking, online membership and registration. Our fully integrated mobile suite allows trainers to deliver first class services, booking clients for their next appointment away from reception.
What support do you offer?
Our dedicated UK based support team are vital to the ongoing relationship with our clients. They provide help and advice with the day-to-day operation of the software. If a ‘worst case scenario’ arises, our team are there to assist. The support service also includes regular updates of the software, ensuring your system always has the latest functionality available.
Tell us about your new premises. What will be on offer there?
We’ve recently moved to Cannock’s prestigious Heritage Park, and have doubled the size of our office space, meaning we can now offer a dedicated training facility for all of our clients. The large modern training area will allow Premier’s customers to leave their busy health club or spa to be trained on how to effectively use Premier Software.
