Largest health club facility in North America uses Trumba Connect
to increase event awareness and attendance
SEATTLE, WA, January 29, 2007 – Trumba Corporation, a developer of innovative event marketing technology, announced today that PRO Sports Club has selected Trumba Connect to increase awareness of and attendance at its classes and events. PRO Sports Club offers more than 100 classes and events each day to nearly 40,000 members in the Seattle/Bellevue metropolitan area. Trumba Connect allows PRO Sports Club to effectively publish and promote its classes and events online and create an interactive, two-way communications vehicle with its members.
Using Trumba Connect, PRO Sports Club is able to keep its branding at the forefront and create a consistent overall user experience. Members can use filters to find relevant class and event information, learn about new classes, add classes to their personal calendars, and receive updates and change notifications through email, text message, or RSS feeds.
“Our large volume of classes and members makes it imperative that all class and event schedules be managed, updated, distributed, and communicated as efficiently and effectively as possible. With Trumba Connect, we’re able to provide our members with interactive class and event schedules that feature the advanced functionality they want such as filtering and Outlook integration,” said Paul Becker, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer at PRO Sports Club. “Our Trumba calendars have become one of the most valuable parts of our web communications portfolio and have enabled us to reduce development costs and minimize the time it takes to update the site information.”
Trumba Connect allows PRO Sports Club to integrate different views of its calendars into pages throughout its site. The club also created a custom filtering module so existing members can easily navigate to specific calendars of interest, while new members get an overall view of the classes and events that the club has to offer.
“PRO Sports Club is a prime example of how today’s health club facilities are offering more convenience to their members. A majority of the club’s clientele is very tech savvy. They have come to expect simplicity in their daily lives,” said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of Trumba. “Trumba Connect allows PRO Sports Club to customize its calendars to engage members and promote classes and events, increase awareness and attendance, and introduce members to new classes they might not be aware of otherwise.”
The PRO Sports Club calendar of class and event schedules can be found at: www.proclub.com.
