Keep reading to learn the 7 ways that the new integration can make an impact on your business: 

1. Faster integrations:

Carver notes that one of his company’s biggest goals is “driving value in our interactions with clients and making transitions as smooth as possible.” He says that oftentimes when people are doing migrations from platforms such as Mindbody, it can be very stressful. The new V4 integration is significantly faster than the previous version, V3, making it easy to quickly integrate Mariana Tek’s products onto client websites.

2. Merchandise:

Flexible buy page merchandising offers branded sales options for both memberships and credits so you can decide how you want to sell your product. Get more options to sell passes, such as per class or an unlimited membership. You’ll also be able to boost revenue by offering add-ons such as beverages at check-out. 

3. Increased customization:

The Mariana Tek tools can be customized to fit the client’s brand colors and style, making it look like just another part of the website with less effort. Carver notes that the styling is one of the biggest differences between the old version and the new one, explaining that “we don't have to style, we just integrate or embed[...] we’re not using CSS at all.”

4. Booking:

You can now add booking pages with real-time spot availability. Clients can book classes without ever having to leave your page and view classes by day, instructor, room, type of class, or location. You can even ensure that social distancing is being maintained by customizing your layout. 

5. Cost:

Costs can also be lower by using V4. Carver explains that “development costs are way lower, having an iFrame reduces a lot of integration work from a client’s perspective.” He also notes that while Mariana Tek is not charging clients right now for API usage, Mindbody is.

6. Ease of use:

Development is now easier than ever. “From the API standpoint, I love how it’s open and accessible,” notes Carver. He also says that his team is using webhooks for messaging, which has allowed for smooth and easy automations.

7. Empowerment:

Your customers will be able to manage their own accounts, including their payments and reservations, directly on your site. You’ll both save time and give your customers control of their reservation experience. 

The new V4 platform integration will enable you to design and develop products that will blow your customers away. From quicker integrations to more options for customization, the new functionality offers endless possibilities. Request a demo to try it out today.
