5 Key Issues with Quick Fixes Using Manager

Streamline operations and boost revenue with Manager


Many bike shops seek out bike rental management software solutions for various reasons. Our team shares common issues that our customers frequently encounter.

The bike industry has occasionally been reluctant to embrace technology, often adopting it out of necessity rather than exploring proactive solutions. Consequently, many rental businesses juggle multiple systems to manage different tasks, leading to confusion among team members.

For instance, a shop might use a contact form on its website to gather rental inquiries, a spreadsheet to track bike usage, a paper diary for reservations, signature collection software for waivers, and a CRM to manage customer history. This disjointed approach can result in team members being unsure about where to log information or search for answers, potentially leading to double bookings and ultimately, customer dissatisfaction.


Let’s delve into the 5 key issues to understand the benefits of a consolidated system:


1. The Ability to Book Online

In today’s digital age, customers expect to find and book their desired bikes online swiftly. Our research indicates that people prefer not to waste time contacting shops for availability. Similarly, rental businesses benefit from streamlining the process of confirming sizes and processing payments.

2. Item Usage

Maintenance is crucial for bike rental businesses. Efficient tracking of usage and servicing ensures a better customer experience and longer-lasting bikes. A cumbersome system can overlook minor issues, negatively impacting customer satisfaction.


3. Flexible Reservations

As customer needs fluctuate, the ability to modify reservations is vital. Recording changes in a paper diary can be messy and risk overbooking. Manager offers flexibility while preventing scheduling conflicts.

4. Customer Data

In the data-driven world, collecting accurate customer information while adhering to regulations like GDPR is critical. Paper records are becoming obsolete and pose risks such as loss and non-compliance. A digital solution like BRM centralises records, ensuring regulatory compliance and litigation protection.


5. Expansion

For growing businesses, a scalable software system is imperative. Unlike a paper diary, Manager facilitates the addition of new bikes, locations, and revenue streams, contributing to increased turnover.
