choosing the right tool

Swift vs. Mindbody Online

We're biased, not ignorant.

We've helped tons of facilities, some that have been with Mindbody for 5+ years, migrate over to Swift and they've never looked back.

Despite that, we know that Swift isn't a perfect match for everyone. For some of you, Mindbody might be a better option.

Hopefully this page sheds light on when & why Swift is a better fit than Mindbody.

Everything boils down
to value and price.

At the end of the day, Swift exists because we believe
that for far too long, facility owners have felt lost with
their existing software.

Our goal is to free you, and deliver the most "bang for buck"
you've ever seen.
Summary

Don't have a lot of time? Here's a quick summary.

When comparing Swift with Mindbody Online - the main differences are in audience, customer support, and marketplaces.

Mindbody is built for many different types of businesses, with their primary audience being yoga & dance studios, hair salons, and spas. They have a lot of different features catering to each of these businesses.

In contrast, Swift is built explicitly for the sports industry. This means we have only the features you need, and none of the ones you don't. Core workflows (like offering memberships, scheduling lessons, teams, rentals, etc) are what we've optimized the app around. We understand that every industry has it's own specific needs and requirements, and we are lazer focused on sports.

In terms of customer support, with Swift you'll have a dedicated support team that's there for any questions or issues that you might have. Our team is incredibly responsive, and we pride ourselves on how we treat our customers - regardless of the size of our company.

If you're looking to list your business on the Mindbody marketplace for additional bookings, then Mindbody may be a good fit for you.
