We're on a mission..... we want to help businesses by saving them time, keeping their classes full and increasing their profits.
And so far we're doing a good job in achieving that. As of July 2020, our systems have handled over 85000 class swaps, which equates to a lot of time saved and lots of class spaces being filled for Bee Inclined members.
It all began with a request from a Northamptonshire Pilates teacher back in 2014. They had tried a number of solutions for managing their class swaps without success and so approached us to design and build a dedicated solution for managing class swaps.
Since the original product was launched, we have continued to work closely with a core group of Pilates Instructors ensuring that the Bee Inclined class swap solution is easy to use for both instructors and clients.
