Beechwood Launch Apple wallet Class Pass

14th March 2017

Following on from the launch of the NearYou iPad version, Beechwood have launched an Apple Wallet iPhone Class Pass.


Making life easier for customers is the goal. That's why we have introduced a Class Pass on the NearYou iPhone APP. Now students can buy a class and FEELGOOD even faster. No waiting, no cash handling, just show up and START.

Less friction

One of the issues for students is actually getting into a class. Our research showed that it can be a long wait from 5 to 15 minutes or in some cases longer? With instructors and receptionists juggling cash, cheques, even credit card I.O.U.s.

Let face it, who likes waiting in a queue?

The class pass takes the friction away, just show up and start. No hanging around, no searching for cash. Result? Less friction at the point of entry.

More time more students

The other benefit is that first impressions count. Now instructors can spend more time with your students before the class starts. Quicker and better introduction for new students. People love attention and now instructors can give new students the reception they deserve. Make them FEELGOOD.

Less fall out

It's frustrating missing a class. With the NearYou class pass students get reminders and notifications meaning that they don't miss a class.

For instructors, the class pass virtually eliminates no shows. Students get reminders and notifications prior to the class on their iPhones and iPads. The pass includes contact information so if they have a problem they can get in touch.

More time less paper

Save a tree or a forest. With the new class pass, students can add their pass to their Apple Wallet - no need to print a receipt! Everyone carries a phone, all they do is show you their pass.

More students happier students

Removing friction and making it easier to pay, attracts more happy students making it a FEELGOOD experience.

If you're a Yoga, Pilates, Dance or Martial Arts instructor or studio, why not subscribe to NearYou and FEELGOOD.

Making it easier for people to join a class reduces friction.

The NearYou App is designed to help people FEELGOOD by making it easy to for the user to book a health and fitness class where and when they want in just a few clicks.
