Roanoke, Virginia, USA-March 1st 2010
The Coaches Console® announced today the release of version 2010 of their Practice Management software, for coaches and other helping professionals.
The new version is a result of over two years of gathering feedback from their member coaches, while also researching the needs of today’s small business owners. The release follows a year in which The Coaches Console emphasized helping coaches and other professionals achieve greater “Business Success”. This includes launching a blog called “Business Success Hub”, that provides free business advice to coaches and other business professionals, in addition to offering other business success services such as, a VA program, & free teleclasses. The system upgrade contains many upgrades, the addition of new features and an overall face-lift that will compliment this “Business Success” focus.
While The Coaches Console has focused primarily in the past on the internal, practice management aspect of running a business, the major focus on the new version is to support its members in the areas of marketing, getting new clients and overall “Business Success”. Being able to choose from multiple website templates enables members of The Coaches Console to implement better online marketing strategies, which build their brands and generate more interest.
Another focus of the release is the upgrade and enhancements to the on-line scheduling module. Members of The Coaches Console are now able to synchronize their calendar to third-party calendars (Outlook, iCal) in a streamlined, automated manner. And the auto-sync feature has been added, enabling members to integrate their Coaches Console calendar to their smart phones and mobile devices (such as the iPhone and Android).
There are other enhancements such as more extensive international capabilities, more capabilities for clients to upload documents, materials and information relevant to the client-coach relationship and greater overall flexibility and customization capabilities.
Co-Founder and President, Melinda Cohan emphasizes that the new version and Business Success Services focus on helping members “Get More Clients, Earn More Money and Make a Bigger Difference”.
