Last week Clubspeed exhibited at the International Kart Association (IKA) annual expo in Offenbach, Germany. Thousands of attendees and exhibitors from around the world gathered for the 27th annual event which has grown from a local exhibition to one of the largest karting events worldwide.

The largest, most successful adventure parks and attractions venues have always looked to technology to create new and exciting experiences for guests, so why wouldn’t you want to follow the footsteps of those who have already paved the way to success?

Unhappy with your current software? Afraid that changing to a new provider will be risky and time consuming? A lot of karting tracks, trampoline parks and other activity centers feel stuck with their existing software, paying too much money for a system that doesn’t deliver the features they need. You also might be dealing with a lengthy list of vendors taking care of only one aspect of your business and you’re realizing that you can make your job easier and save money by consolidating software vendors. While you may be aware that your current provider(s) is not a good fit, it can be an overwhelming process to convert and you are afraid to make the switch - so much so you become stagnant and avoid change altogether. This is arguably the most harmful approach of all and results in lost revenue, inefficiencies and an apathetic team that isn’t excited about being there. It’s time to embrace change and give it a hug because it can transform your business. Here are 4 tips for switching software providers.
