The MindBody Competitors You've Been Waiting For

Punchpass is a simple alternative to MindBody software


A customer quote about MindBody Online software I use MindBody Online but hate it...

We hear this a lot. If you're thinking of making the switch from MindBody software to Punchpass, we want to make the decision as easy as possible. So, we’ve put together some info that’ll help you decide which option is best for you.

Here's why you should consider switching…

1) Punchpass is Easier to Use

When a tool is too complicated, it can waste hours of your time with no increased benefit. Punchpass is easy to set up, and it's easy to use. No training is required for you or your instructors. It will make sense right away, and you'll be cruising along in no time. Your customers will find it simple to use too.

Review of MindBody Online software

I have been using MindBody for almost two years, and it way too complex for what I need and honestly been a nightmare at times that I don’t have time for.

Customer quote about Punchpass software

Your product is much easier to use than MindBody.

Comment from a MindBody user

Many of my clients couldn’t figure out how to use MindBody.

Customer quote about MindBody software

I use MindBody right now, but it has way more than what I need. And my instructors get frustrated with it even after two years!

2) Punchpass is built for small independent studios and instructors

As a small business, we understand how important every minute and every dollar is to you. We've designed Punchpass to be simple and flexible. So you can present your small business in a custom way without unnecessary complications.

We've also packed some unique, small business-friendly features into every single one of our plans.

Punchpass has a great self check in feature. Just set up an iPad or tablet near your entrance and let your regulars check in. You can welcome new customers and get ready for class.

You can also email your customers right from Punchpass. You can reach one person, a whole class, or any assortment of your customers in a jiffy.

Punchpass offers great flexibility if you don't have a website. You can show your schedule and sell passes right from Facebook. We'll give you a great online presence without any extra hassle. An email link works too!

Customer quote -- other MindBody software competitors were not the right fit

I have done a lot of research on software systems, and Punchpass seems like the best one for me. MindBody is just too complicated and the other MindBody competitors were either too expensive or just not the right fit.

Customer review - Punchpass is simple and perfect

A friend says she uses Punchpass, that it simple and perfect for what she needs.

Reviewer says that MindBody software is too expensive

I have only a few classes and workshops, so something like MindBody is far too big, bulky and cumbersome and expensive!

Customer review - glad they found alternative to MindBody

I’m so glad I found an alternative to MindBody. I’ve used that program so much and don’t see why everyone uses it. Punchpass is perfectly simple and intuitive.

3) Punchpass is More Affordable

We believe that online scheduling software should be affordable for your small businesses. Punchpass is a great value, regardless of your particular needs. We've designed our plans so you don't have to pay for features you don't use. All plans allow unlimited users, instructors, and customers so your bill will stay the same as your business grows. There are no hidden costs or surprises.

Unlike MindBody and some other MindBody software competitors, there is no extra charge to embed your schedule on your website. "Widgets" are included 😀.

Our plans start at only $34 per month (USD). Click for pricing details.

Customer review - MindBody software not affordable

I’m paying over $100/mo at MindBody to sell packages and accept class registrations. I need something more affordable.

Customer quote - wants easy way to keep track of student attendance

I just want an easy way to keep track of student attendance in classes that does not cost an arm and a leg. I currently have MindBody, and I do not like anything about it — especially at that price point :(.

Customer review - MindBody software not worth the cost

MindBody was so expensive! I wasn’t seeing a good return on what I was spending!

4) Punchpass has Top Notch Service

We’re committed to your success at Punchpass. That’s why we check in with every single customer to proactively answer any questions you may have.

We’re here for you with personal support. Our customer service is quick, friendly, and awesome. We have a terrific online support database too so you can get answers anytime, day or night.

Customer experience with MindBody online software customer service

MindBody called me wanting to know why I left. I explained all the problems I had with them and told them I was much happier with my new program. I told them that you were even texting me during Thanksgiving and “That’s Customer Service!” I told her.

They said they are trying to be the number one program for this stuff ... but to me the family style attention you give is better than fancy stuff. It’s all about feeling secure and sure that when I need someone to help me they’re going to be there. And I told her that too... she stayed quiet ... because she knew it was true :)

I prefer a cozier, friendly environment.

5) Punchpass Won't Hold You Hostage

Punchpass is a month-to-month service, and we'll never make you sign a long term contract. You can cancel at any time, and you will not be billed again once your current month of service has ended.

Customer quote - I'm definitely switching to Punchpass but I'm waiting for MindBody to allow me to cancel

6) Punchpass Doesn't Pressure You

We want you to have the solution that works best for you. Since all of our plans have a core set of terrific features, you have great options. If you don't need a feature and you want to keep costs down, we'll never try to convince you otherwise. You can always decide to change plans later, as your business grows.

Customer quote - MindBody software sales and marketing pressure pestered me

I was looking at MindBody...it seemed way less user friendly and the sales marketing pestered so much it put me off. Your business has already won me over.

Customer review - MindBody software learning curve is too much

Tried MindBody software, learning curve is too much. Also, too much sales pressure.
