Modern Member Experience

Designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind, Pulse features a mobile-friendly member interface that works on all devices. From browsing for new activities to updating payment information, members can manage their accounts with ease.

Members can:

  • Join or renew membership, register for programs and childcare, and make donations
  • Reserve a spot in group exercise classes and other calendar events
  • Manage personal information, make payments, and update payment methods
  • Download payment history, tax statements and facility access records
  • Choose single sign-on to login using their Google, Microsoft, or Facebook credentials

Intuitive Staff Interface

The Pulse staff interface uses a simple, cart-based design just like the member site. Staff only see options available to them based on their permissions for a clutter-free experience. Current clients report a 75% decrease in staff training time since switching to Pulse!

Allison Watkins' Headshot

Making Your Day Easier

"Working with a smaller company has been an absolute positive. They’re big enough to get it done for everyone, but small enough to give individual attention. My suggestions, requests, and problems get immediate attention. There’s no red tape. There’s no bureaucracy. It’s the same core group of people making decisions. And they’re making good decisions."
