How Brookside Golf & Country Club Simplified Pool Reservations with Omnify
The Brookside Golf and Country Club has been a symbol of quality and luxury for the residents of Columbus, Ohio, since 1927. Spread out over 260 acres of refreshing countryside landscape, the club offers its members a whole world of leisure and recreation!
The club is best known for its highly rated 18-course Championship golf course which hosts the U.S. Open Sectional Qualifiers every year. Members also enjoy a host of facilities from a storied Clubhouse, state-of the-art tennis courts, a Fitness Facility of the highest standards, and an 8-lane Olympic-size swimming pool.
Brookside serves as a scenic venue for a variety of events round the year, from private parties and formal dinners to weddings and corporate events. The club also conducts a number of golf tournaments and has maintained a consistently high standard at all its sports facilities over the years.
Brookside has been using Omnify as a swimming pool reservation system for their members. Since signing up they have found great joy in optimizing pool scheduling and restricting access without sacrificing equitable access to all. Here’s what they had to say about their experience so far.
Please help us with your introduction.
My name is Jim Callahan and I run the pool at the Brookside Golf and Country Club.
What challenges were you facing and what motivated you to solve them?
Initially, we faced a constant challenge in keeping a track of people signing up for sessions. Moreover, we had to keep an eye out at all times to ensure we didn’t have too many people signing up for any session. We realized we could benefit from a streamlined pool reservation system that would keep track of everything connected to our clients and help us stay in touch with them easily.
How did you first hear about Omnify
I heard about the benefits of Omnify from a fellow pool owner and decided to try it out for myself.
How do you use our product, and how have you benefited from using Omnify?
We use Omnify mainly to take care of our reservation process, from collecting relevant information to managing payments. The switch has helped us simplify our booking process, automated a lot of the communication with our clients, and saved us significant time and effort at a time when our focus is more immediately required in ensuring the highest safety and hygiene standards at the facility. Thanks to this, the experience with the app has been perfect for us.
How has Omnify improved your day-to-day life?
The need of the hour for us has been ensuring people’s safety when they use our facilities and this naturally begins with capacity management for every session. With Omnify, we managed this comfortably by capping the number of slots available for every session. What is more, we no longer have to follow up manually with clients thanks to the automated push notifications and reminders enabled by the app!
What has exceeded your expectations since working with us?
We were able to catch up with all features within no time! It is really easy to use and we have had no trouble understanding the different ways in which we can apply the features to improve our work flow on a daily basis.
How have we managed to help you in the growth of your business? Can you share some revenue numbers/growth percentages etc?
As of now, the changes we have experienced since signing up have been largely in terms of simplifying our business operations. This frees us up to look at other aspects of our business and deliver a higher quality of service to our clients moving forward.
What would you tell someone who's considering Omnify?
Don’t think twice, sign up and enjoy the benefits for yourself. Its ease of use and an efficient reservation system make it an amazing service to build your business with streamlined processes and a firm foundation.
If you could give one piece of advice to fellow entrepreneurs like yourself, what would it be?
I am glad we signed up with Omnify, we have already signed up for a second season as well and my advice for fellow entrepreneurs would be to do the same because it has so much to offer!
We, at Omnify, are grateful for your kind words and glad we could do our bit to contribute to your continued success at the Brookside Golf & Country Club!
