By incorporating Micropower’s Club Link into your web design, you can have “members only” pages where you can feature exclusive content such as newsletters, special member events and more. This can also be a way of reducing your administrative tasks as members will have the ability to perform important tasks such as updating details and making membership fee payments online.
Micropower’s Marketing solutions, when used in conjunction with our other solutions, such as Membership and Financials, can not only improve communications with your members but can also reduce your administrative tasks, saving your staff time and your organisation money.
World Wide Web
Micropower’s Marketing Solutions offer a range of options to help Club Managers communicate with their members. A strong internet presence is a must for building and maintaining your membership base. It is a vital link between a club and its members, as well as an important means of attracting new business to other areas of the club.
Micropower’s Club Space Website Solution is the ultimate marketing device. Our websites are professionally developed and designed so that visitors to your site can easily find the information they need. With Micropower’s Content Management System, Club Space, it is easy to update your website by adding and removing images, updating text and creating photo galleries to keep your site fresh and interesting.
You can also promote special events on your website. These promotions are easily managed by scheduling in advance what dates you want your events to be shown and the system does the rest.
Managing events with ease
Micropower’s Functions Booking Solution contains a range of useful features to help you manage functions and events at your club. The system has the ability to simplify your bookings and quotes, better allocate staff and automate your invoicing. Save time in processing quotes and improve the accuracy of your bookings with our easy to use function diary. This can be viewed by all staff, giving anyone the ability to see current availability at a glance and reducing the chances of a double booking.
You can also easily create task lists for yourself or allocate tasks to other employees, thus enhancing your ability to effectively manage staff members. Through the diary, you can easily amend an event time or duplicate events over a number of days. Functions are flagged in the diary to show a different colour depending on the status, e.g. enquiry, tentative, confirmed or cancelled.
Invoicing is made easier as Micropower’s Function Bookings allow you to charge customers in a number of ways such as at a flat rate or charged to individual members. Plus, if you have Micropower’s Financials Solutions, the amounts for each function item are automatically inputted into the general ledger saving staff time and reducing the possibility of error.
It also integrates with our Point of Sale Solutions so that deposits and other charges made at the point of sale can be posted to the event account and will be reflected on the invoice.
Our comprehensive reporting feature means you have timely and accurate information always at your fingertips. At the time of installation, you can customise your stationery so that you produce professional looking proposals. The reporting function also enables you to produce internal running sheets, allocate tasks to staff and manage jobs such as following up deposits due. A full audit trail is maintained so that you can easily see who has made any changes in the system along the way.

Managing your most valuable resources
Human Resource Management is one of the biggest assets and expenses in any business. Having a comprehensive and accurate reporting system is the key to managing your employees in a cost effective manner. Micropower’s Human Resource Management Solution provides an easy-to-use, central repository for all of your employee records, including training needs, leave entitlements and health records.
Because this system has individual logins and passwords for managers, sensitive information is kept confidential. This means that you can store all of the information you previously held in separate files in one, secure location electronically.
Payroll & rostering made easy
Human Resource Management also integrates with our Rostering and Payroll solutions, thereby offering a one-stop-shop for managing your employees. Micropower’s Payroll Solution will automatically calculate your employees’ wages – all you have to know is what hours your staff worked.
Because all of the relevant state and federal awards have been pre-installed, the system automatically calculates any relevant penalties and deductions for uniforms and meals. In addition, because payroll and rostering integrate, you can easily measure any variances and better manage your club’s biggest expense. You only have to administer one employee record for ease of management and to reduce the possibility of errors.
Our rostering saves time in generating rosters by automating much of the process. It ensures you always have staff with relevant qualifications, e.g. RSA, on site and creates a fairer system by distributing rosters evenly and according to availability. Micropower’s fully integrated solution can be used as a key tool to help progress staff through your business to reduce staff turnover and wage expenses and, because you are only entering the information once, you save time and money.
Identify your members
The search facility allows you to create selective groups based on a wide range of criteria such as age, gender, join date, player handicap or occupation. These can then be used in conjunction with Micropower’s Club Mail as a powerful marketing tool. You can also identify members as part of corporate or family groups and link these together for billing and mailing purposes. Financial postings can be made to individual member accounts or to the family or corporate account.
The individual member accounts display the other linked members. Another important feature of Micropower’s Membership Solution is that it allows you to keep notes and history for each member. Documents can be uploaded and retrieved as required. This information is retained in the database even if a member resigns, and can be readily retrieved should they become a financial member again.
Keeping information secure
Because the system has individual logins and passwords for managers, sensitive information is kept confidential. You control what level of access individual staff members have to the records. We have also a comprehensive range of reports available such as occupation hours and termination reports, along with letter templates such as certificate of service and completion of probation. This means that you can store all of the information you previously held in separate files in one, secure location electronically. By having all of this information in one place, all of your legal requirements are covered.
For a fully functional system, Micropower’s Human Resource Solution integrates with our Payroll and Rostering systems so, because you are only entering the information once, you reduce the chances of human error whilst saving time and money.
