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. While they are aware that the system is not a good fit, they are either concerned or afraid to convert to a more innovative provider.

Capture some of the holiday spirit by giving back to your customers with special promotions and offerings.

The world is becoming increasingly mobile, with consumers expecting everything they do on a daily basis to be accessible and achievable on their smartphones and other devices. In fact, American adults spend an average of more than three-and-a-half hours per day on their phones, with 90% of that time spent in apps, according to eMarketer. Businesses who don’t have a mobile app or experience are missing out on the opportunity to reach customers at any time and anywhere.

A large indicator of customer satisfaction while they are at your activity center is their interactions with the staff. How your employees connect with customers, as well as how they carry out their responsibilities, can make or break the reputation of your park.

Are you on a maintenance schedule for your karts? You likely know the basics like refueling when the tank is empty and filling tires with sufficient air.

A well-maintained kart is more reliable and performs better, keeping racers safe and satisfied with their experience at your track.
Without your customers, your business could not succeed. You want to provide good memories for them when they visit your activity center that will leave them satisfied and get them to come back. But how do you know if you are achieving that goal? The best way to legitimately understand what your customers think about you is to hear it directly from them.
Think about your average customer. When they come to your karting track, they expect a day of having fun and racing with friends or family. They may visit your facility for a day every so often, with long stretches of time before they return.
Karting is an activity that can be enjoyed by just about anyone. Young, old, male, female; everyone can have fun out on the race track. However, no matter who is in the driver’s seat, they should have an understanding of the potential risks and what they should do to ensure their own safety and the safety of other drivers. Over 10,000 injuries occur in people 15 and under each year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
You and your customers should comply to the following safety standards to prevent accident and injury.
