Friendly Manager works with many different types of clubs around the world. Here are just a few of our customers who we are working with and what they have to say!
Oh my word!  I just registered and paid for next term on my phone. The system is great and super mobile friendly.  Great job. Now have registered and logged in to your membership site - so can see all details etc.  It is great. I work developing and writing content for websites as part of my job and wanted to let you know how well yours worked - Congrats.

Friendly Manager really lives up to its name. In building the platform and systems that we required for our coaching passport it has been a pleasant, easy and simple process. At each step we have been kept up to date with progress and consulted on any design and changes required. As we evolve our system further into the future, we look forward to continuing our friendly relationship with Friendly Manager to get the outcomes we need.

The system is really impressive, in that it allows tracking of fees and other costs, as well as the badges that the boys are earning, and events that we organise.I appreciate the ability to allow my leaders and our boys to have different levels of authorisation to log on and find out what is happening, and set up new programs....

We are delighted to work with Karl and FriendlyWeb. Karl has provided wonderful support starting from our initial enquiry and has answered and provided tutorial assistance regularly. The software program is simple and easy to use and works across multiple platforms seamlessly. Adding data and modifying data is beautifully easy and using this program has simplified the administrative portion immensely.

Friendly Manager has become our best friend.  It has saved at least 16+ hours a week of administration and allows us time to focus on our members.  It's flexible, portable  -  I used to take folders away with me to competitions, now I take my phone!

Implementing Friendly Manager at Western Springs AFC this year has simplified everything! 
We couldn’t have done the quality and quantity of communication over the last few months without it. Comments from members have confirmed they are really impressed with the improvement in our communication since using Friendly Manager. Having everything in one place to manage the club has really streamlined operations for us. As well as great software, the quick and accommodating support from Friendly Manager to get the most out of the platform has been great. We are really happy with what Friendly Manager has delivered to our club.

We are so grateful for Friendly Manager building this feature. It is the easiest system by far. We had resources but had no way of sharing them efficiently until now. All our recreational gym classes are now able to access our online program. We've been able to generate revenue again, which has been a great help at this time. To have a single system with all the functionality on one platform has made it so simple for us and our members. We love it!"

We are all up and running, which is really exciting! The clubs seem to be finding it easy to log in and set up their teams and I’ve even done my first batch of invoices. Everything is so simple, which is what we needed.
Lauren King, Treasurer
Otorohanga Netball Centre
I just want to say a big thank you – the fabulous invoicing/statement process has meant that for the first time of my 34 people who are due to pay for camps, only one has not paid – and that’s four days before the due date!!! Typically I would spend at least half an hour to an hour tracking people down.  Time is the best gift of all !!!!

Friendly Manager played a vital role in establishing a fully integrated database solution encompassing individual club and National Sport Organisation needs and outcomes. An open and flexible approach to solving issues for the overall solution were trademark traits. No component was deemed too hard or unsolvable – but through thorough planning, conceptualisation, testing and deployment each item was managed effectively. As with any project, adjustments need to be made ‘on-the-run’ and Friendly Manager were adept at being flexible with promptness to complete tasks. In doing so, it enabled successful delivery to meet pre-established outcomes in line with our strategic direction.

I have used many Administration Systems in the past but have not found one that can cater for all the different programmes we run.  Friendly Manager can do this effortlessly and once set up it pretty much runs itself.  Friendly Manager is user friendly and the technical support has been outstanding.  It has reduced a lot of double handling of data and Instructors have access to 100% accurate information poolside.  We love that Friendly Manager is local and continues to evolve, The team are keen to hear what we would like the system to do for us so it is always getting better!

I can recommend Friendly Manager to Cricket Clubs. We started implementing Friendly Manager in July 2018, with a target go live date of 1 August. To be ready for registrations, we had to transfer all data from ClubHub, get credit card payments with EziDebit working, integrate to our Xero financial system and activate the link to CricHQ. We went live on 1 August, it worked and continues to work.
Feedback from Club members has been extremely complimentary, easier to use than ClubHub, with most members able to complete the registration process within 2 - 5 minutes.
The Friendly Manager organisation have been extremely responsive throughout the process, guiding us as we’ve learnt the software and assisted us as we’ve dealt with issues such as members changing e-mail addresses and Auckland Cricket changing the grade structure.

After working with multiple XL spreadsheets for many years this season our Club decided to move to an integrated online membership management system with Friendly Manager. While any change presents challenges, we have been really pleased with Friendly Manager. It is easy to understand and offers great potential benefits for communicating with our members and managing our registration process. The service provided by the Friendly Manager team has also been first class.

Our experience with Friendly Manager has been nothing but positive. We feel more in control of what happens in the club and management has become less stressful. We have had absolutely no problems with registrations as opposed to multiple come backs and problems in previous seasons. Outgoing correspondence is more professional. The free website is an absolute pleasure and is very user friendly. We have received several calls and emails from club members complimenting us on the streamlined registration process and great new website

The Mount Maunganui Cricket Club adopted Friendly Manager across our Junior club during the 2016/17 season. 

We found it to be easy to use and gave us significantly better ability to keep track of our members and  to communicate with members, coaches/managers and other volunteers. 

I would be happy to recommend this product to any sports club looking to streamline their administrative processes.

....After considering several platforms (including the national governing body Squash NZ ‘iSquash’ platform), I identified Tauranga based Friendly Manager as the best SaaS/web based solution available and secured committee funding to proceed with the project....I’d like to applaud Karl from Friendly Manager in particular for his service throughout the implementation phase. Even when Change Requests were required, he was professional and responsive throughout the project and definitely took on a ‘Program Lead’ role during the project.

Tauranga City Basketball have been using Friendly Manager for just over a year to manage their Representative and Navigators players. The system has allowed us to manage their fees and attendance in an easy and hassle-free way. All our Managers have especially enjoyed the ability to take attendance on their phones and send bulk emails to their teams in seconds, and they have all found it very simple to learn.

Friendly Manager is compatible with Xero which has allowed the systems to work together to reduce some of the administrative and banking tasks within our organisation.
Karl and his team are great guys that go the extra mile to help and explain their system. Nothing is too much trouble and their professional but “Friendly” approach is really appreciated. We have, and would again happily recommend the system to any club looking for a great online system.

Friendly Manager has been perfect for us on so many levels.  It is super easy to use, has made our paper war disappear completely and the interaction between Friendly Manager and XERO is seamless.  Having invoices created automatically and duplicated in XERO saves us so much time and energy.  Also with members registering online each term my administrative team have time to breathe. I highly recommend Karl and this club management software system.

We've been using the Friendly Manager system for about 6 months now and find it extremely user friendly and easy to pick up and run with. The smooth transition from our previous system was effortless. We very quickly trained our users to use the system with minimal effort.We love the simple, clean interface, the integration with our website, and particularly the ability to email directly from Friendly Manager without having to manage cumbersome address books in Gmail. One particular feature we love is the ability to use Tags on our member records. These allow us to quickly tag members with useful information that can be searched on and filtered by.All in all I definitely recommend Friendly Manager to other clubs who want to manage their club more effectively and efficiently, and ultimately giving you precious time back in your life.

Gymnastica Gym Club had out grown our paper based membership recording. We investigated a number of management programme options but wanted something that was accessible on mobile devices, worked with Xero accounting package and we could have regular contact if needed. We came across Friendly Manager and have not looked back. Members are now in control and have access to their own information giving them instant access to fees, training times and ability to enrol in classes when it suits them. As a volunteer club we have saved administration and accounting time and at the click of a button have access to various reports to assist us in planning and promotion. Karl and his team have been very responsive and helpful.

We are into our third term on Friendly Manager at Rimutaka Gymsports and we love it.  We used to handle paper enrolments three times; between class rolls, national affiliation databases and then into Xero for invoicing.  Now it is one entry into Friendly Manager (which members do themselves) and all the rest is done automatically.  We can also manage children across classes, into new classes and across terms really easily.   In the office I can now see numbers across all classes, attendance records plus it synchs to Xero and makes all invoicing and management of payments so much easier.

We couldn’t recommend Friendly Manager highly enough. They have provided us with a program which has completely solved all our administrative issues. Not only that but we have quick access to support if we need it and if there is anything that we would like to add or suggest, they work on seeing if can happen. I can firmly say that it has saved us hours of admin by having FM for our club, I would highly recommend if you are looking for a software program for your club!

Howick Gymnastic Club has engaged Friendly Manager to provide their registration/booking system beginning March 2017.  This has been a very big task for the Club and has involved a large amount of communication via phone and email.  We have found Karl and the team to be very helpful and friendly in providing the Club with what it requires.  An online demonstration and trial were most helpful and identified areas which needed adapting to work with our Club’s needs.  We have found FM very forthcoming in trying to sort out any problems that have arisen and are pleased with the changeover to this new system.  We have had positive feedback from our members in regard to using the new system and we would recommend FM as a registration and booking system to other Clubs looking for an online service.

Friendly Manager is making our club run more efficiently as it has been tailored to meet the specific needs of our club. We can easily email invoices to multiple groups, helping parents to keep track of the fees they need to pay – this is a huge timesaver! The parents can update or change their details and pre enrol for classes so we can focus on providing quality gymnastic programmes.We are able to access information from wherever we are and multiple people can be using Friendly Manager at the same time. The customer service is excellent and new features are being added regularly.

Our 240 member running and walking club looked at a wide range of administration systems, both in New Zealand and overseas, before settling on Friendly Manager and we are 100% confident we made the right choice. It has given us a no fuss, user friendly all-in-one solution to our database management, information sharing, communication and website management challenges - work that was previously sucking up hours of committee member time. Plus it doesn't just look good, it's really easy to learn and use. Our club represents a wide range of age groups and everyone is comfortable on the Friendly Manager system including the easy on-line registration. It just makes our lives easier. Karl and the team at Friendly Manager are very customer-focused and responsive and excellent to deal with. Highly recommend.

The Friendly Manager system has changed and improved the way we do things. The team at Friendly Manager took the time to understand how our systems work, established what our business needs were and then used impressive initiative, computer development knowledge and design skills to solve all our issues.

This has been a positive process which has left us with a customised system that has improved our business efficiency and accuracy. The implementation of this system is saving us valuable time and getting things done in a much more effective and faster way! I have used other computer systems which have promised the world, and then turned out to be inflexible, with long processes and have caused issues but Friendly Manager reviewed what we needed and solved all of our computer issues.

Friendly Manager went ahead and improved systems to make processes more efficient, even when I didn’t request it, as they could see ways to make things simpler and easier for our business, and I couldn’t thank them enough for this.

Friendly Manager went the extra mile for my company and I recommend them to everyone!!!

Friendly Manager” has been a time saver in recording attendance of boys. Setting up for each term has been straight forward. Some parts of what is available has not been utilised fully yet, but shows much promise. If you are looking for an easy way to keep records for your club, this is certainly a great option and it local to NZ so understands NZ needs
