From the onset, we have focused on capturing data that would scale and give business owners visibility critical to growth. We know that reliable data is the foundation of success, and make it easy for business owners to take action on it.

“We spent years looking for a Point of Sale system to replace our clunky, outdated software. Approach was the first, and only, option we found that was designed to meet our needs—and the needs of our industry—while taking full advantage of modern cloud-based design and implementation. The software is highly flexible and robust, and the Approach team has worked with us from day one to deliver a solution that is easier to use, feature-rich, and saves us money. Great product. Great service.”

"There’s already a lot that goes in to opening a new gym, so it can be daunting choosing software, and training employees on it. Approach made it easy, and quick to train our staff, and they are constantly updating the app with new features that improve our staff and customer experience. We know we made the right decision going with Approach.”

Marty Bradstreet

"Switched from Clubware last year and believe we were the first Australian client. It was important for us to find a web based app rather than hosting our own or connecting through a VM. Having the gym software running in a browser is great! Support has been phenomenal and the Approach team has worked quickly to fix any issues, and are constantly rolling out new features and quality of life updates."

Sonnie Trotter

"I have been working in the climbing gym and outdoor industry for over 25 years, and I am so happy we decided on Approach to manage our clientele here in Canmore Alberta. I highly recommend Approach to anyone looking for a super clean platform that is user friendly and simple to understand. The team behind Approach has been incredibly prompt and helpful in getting us established and have addressed all of our questions and concerns with care and attention to detail. The future is bright for this company and our community."
