“We have been working with the Apple Seeds over 10 years, starting with a very basic, online classes booking system, on the advanced, fully manageable custom CRM ending. Together with Apple Seeds team we have built an online system for franchising program called 'Songs for seeds'. It's an interactive, music class that educates and encourages children through a live, three-piece band. There are ~30 locations at the moment.”

LOCATIONS MANAGEMENT

As the company expanded from a single location to multiple places’ network, so did our software.
All franchisee owners get their own, a highly customizable website with a selectable business model (one time payments vs monthly subscriptions) and integrated set of common features. We implemented a multiple access levels’ system, which allows to managing content & resources in a single location’s scope as well as on the global level.

CMS

To achieve a highly customizable website, we integrated and extended tool named „Comfortable Mexican Sofa”. This allows to managing single pieces as well as an overall layout of pages. Those can be built from simple blocks of text (visual editor included), the system also supports creating and using picture & video galleries, audio playlists, banners and more...
Even without technical knowledge, any page’s edit can be done with ease.

SCHEDULER

The core functionality of the platform. It is dedicated to our client’s needs, internal panel, which enables managers to create schedules, allocate facilities, assign staff to classes and support the whole booking process, pricing policy etc.

REPORTING

We created a system which enables to review and analyze almost every aspect of the business. Dedicated reports can be used for accounting purpose, to measure KPI’s, track the classes’ usage, view the demographic data or just to print the history of payments.

From a technical perspective, the AppleSeeds is a very interesting project. At the bottom, it is a nice mix of well known (at least for engineers) tools and custom modules, which were built from scratch. I have gained much experience due to the application complexity, large variety of business cases that we handle and also special attention for keeping the data consistency, which is necessary for such long lasting projects.

CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP

Another important part of the application is the internal CRM module. It integrates client account’s related management with an internal POS (Point of Sale) functionality as well as Reporting system. It is also a „front office” software, which supports handling access to play spaces, keeping track of client’s payments’ history and more...

It is worth to mention, that we integrated our software with dedicated to pick and measure customer experience and satisfaction service – Listen360. Thanks to those 3rd party services, the AppleSeeds staff can get detailed insight and feedback from their customers of what is great and what could be improved in their daily operation.

E-COMMERCE

The front-end layer made for clients – parents and their kids. It allows to register and purchase online the company’s services. Those are not only the aforementioned classes, but also membership, which gives an unlimited access to playground spaces and birthdays’ packages.

We implemented two separate models of online payment (using credit cards). The first one is a typical one time fee. It is used for purchasing birthday events and semester mode’s classes (classes which are operated between certain dates). The second option of payment is a monthly subscription. It is designed to handle billing of memberships and those classes which are scheduled to be „continues”.

The system comes with a rich module of discounts. First and last minute options, multiple classes’ or kids’ registrations combined with continues or limited time promos, give high flexibility of creating pricing policy. The loyalty system is also available in the application. Some part of the money (the rates are customizable) spent by clients, can be gained and reused for the next purchases, which leads to the better customer experience.
