SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — December 16, 2015 — Netpulse, the #1 provider of branded club mobile apps, announced today that O2 Fitness Clubs is its newest customer. With 24 locations across North and South Carolina, O2 Fitness Clubs is the largest locally-owned fitness company across the two states. The O2 Fitness mobile app will provide members with one easy place to manage their class schedules, tracked workout data and club rewards points.
“Researching the various mobile app solutions on the market, we were looking for one that would easily integrate with our existing technologies, particularly our rewards program which is powered by Perkville,” said Michael D. Olander, O2 Fitness Clubs’ Chief Executive Officer. “Netpulse was the perfect solution for us. Leveraging their existing platform integrations, we were able to build an industry leading app without the burden of having to hire an in-house team.”
Netpulse provides a customizable mobile app platform for the fitness industry. The modular platform enables club owners to implement the features they need and easily integrates with existing club technologies, such as member management software, rewards programs and wearable tracking devices. This provides a seamless digital experience for club members, while allowing clubs to quickly bring a cost-effective mobile app to market.
“Partnering with regional clubs like O2 Fitness underscores our commitment to supporting clubs of all sizes build apps,” said Mike Escobedo, Netpulse’s Senior Vice President of Customer Success. “Our team of mobile app experts take care of everything from building the app to keeping it up-to-date with the latest features, so that club owners can focus on running their business.”
Custom app development is a costly venture, adding up to tens of thousands of dollars in upfront costs plus ongoing support and development. With Netpulse, club operators can launch a custom-branded app and receive ongoing upgrades and support for a fraction of the cost. This lowers the barrier to entry for clubs to launch mobile apps.
To date, Netpulse has helped hundreds of clubs from single location small businesses to large enterprise chains bring mobile apps to market.
The O2 Fitness mobile app will be available early 2016 for both iOS and Android platforms.
