BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — This past summer, Bodywork Buddy, a custom business management software solution for massage therapists, released their improved system with a mobile-friendly, responsive design. After its founding five years ago, Bodywork Buddy has continued to implement new features and upgrade its system to offer members state-of-the-art, web-based technology. This latest upgrade enables massage therapists to manage their practice seamlessly from their tablets or smartphones.
“Our members have been thrilled with the new responsive design,” Bodywork Buddy CEO Berin Iwlew said. “We have a very niche market, and it’s important that our product fit into the busy lives of independent massage therapists. Being 100-percent mobile friendly is crucial in today’s world, and we’re pleased to be able to provide that to both our members and their clients. We couldn’t be more elated with the feedback we’ve received from our membership.”
Mary-Claire Fredette, massage therapist and instructor in Cincinnati, has been using the system for her business since early 2013.
“The new Bodywork Buddy mobile design works like a charm,” Fredette said. “It’s super easy to use, quick to load and very efficient. It’s a great timesaver!”
The new responsive design includes:
- An optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors)
- Login to main site, no need to login to a separate mobile version
- Access via an Internet-enabled browser, no need to install an app
- Updates automatically when new features are implemented, no downloads
This upgrade will enable Bodywork Buddy to focus on continual improvement and adds new features for its member base without the restrictions that come with complying to a third-party system that downloadable apps are subject to. The Bodywork Buddy team is excited about the rollout of more features in the upcoming months and believe that this essential upgrade will make for quicker feature additions in the future.
