Front Desk Partners With Connect2Classes, Enabling Education Providers to Grow and Manage Enrollment

Leading Mobile Client Management Software Simplifies Scheduling and Optimizes Engagement With Lifelong Learners

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - October 14, 2015) - Front Desk, the mobile-first client management system trusted by personal services businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with Connect2Classes™ (C2C), a marketplace for in-person and online courses. The partnership enables C2C class providers to leverage Front Desk's software to seamlessly manage class scheduling, student registration, billing and more, delivering a streamlined experience for their customers and better overall efficiency.

Today, students looking for specialized courses and education sign up for instructional classes online or via their mobile devices more than ever before. With the combined functionality of Front Desk and C2C, class providers can capture more registration leads, digitally manage schedules, track attendance, automate registration and set up important class notifications for their students.

The partnership with Front Desk offers C2C customers the following benefits:

  • Ability to manage enrollment, instructors and scheduling easily, reducing hours of administrative work.
  • Freedom to focus more on high value activities such as marketing and student interaction.
  • Opportunity to work more efficiently through an easy-to-use mobile interface, freeing users from their desks and allowing them to manage class related activities from anywhere, at anytime.

"Many of our customers are small, independent business owners and educators who do not have the technical capabilities or resources to streamline organization and the management tasks that are pivotal to their success," said Dallas Jasper, CEO of Connect2Classes. "A community may have a robust population of lifelong learners, but education providers struggle to meet the needs of all potential students due to administrative headaches. With this partnership, they can leverage the combined power of our platform with Front Desk's software, enabling them to improve engagement with potential students, better market their offerings and drive growth."

"The needs of small business owners -- especially educators that are focused on teaching not technology -- are often overlooked or misunderstood, leaving a huge gap in the accessibility of their services," said Jon Zimmerman, CEO and Founder, Front Desk. "Connect2Classes aligns perfectly with our goal of helping them improve efficiency, reach their audience and ultimately conduct more business. Through this partnership, education providers in our own backyard have access to the best capabilities technology can offer to boost enrollment and ensure a positive experience for their students."
