Almost everyone uses apps on a daily basis to navigate, communicate, transact, and more. In many ways, apps can make life easier and more convenient.
Booster club software, along with a mobile app, can do the same for your organization. An app can simplify day-to-day management, improve communication, and make your life easier, all in one location.
What Is a Booster Club App?
A booster club app is a bundled solution that makes it easier to manage the essential parts of your day-to-day operations. BoosterHub’s booster club software and app offer a variety of services to simplify your operation, including:
The software and app give access to both the club officers as well as parent volunteers. Parents can log in to the app on a mobile device and have access to everything they need, from contact lists to volunteer opportunities to information about fundraising.
How an App Can Help Your Booster Club
Running a booster club takes a lot of time and patience from dedicated parents. Maximizing efficiency to get the most out of precious volunteer hours and fundraising efforts is key. An app can remove many of your organization's inefficiencies and bring you several other benefits.
Improve Parent Communication
Parents can be tough to get hold of when it comes to booster club communication. Between kids, work, and other responsibilities, getting parent engagement can be a big challenge. But no matter how busy parents are, they are usually consistently on their mobile devices.
Being able to communicate with them via an app can be a game-changer. Parents have all of the information they need about the club right at their fingertips, maximizing the chance that they will see reminders and other important info.
One of the biggest time commitments in managing a booster club is the administrative work. Accounting, organizing volunteers, and fundraising efforts can take several hours a week. With only so much time in the day, the administrative work can take away from core activities like fundraising.
With a booster club app, you can easily manage all of these things in one central location. BoosterHub’s solution helps you manage calendars, communicate with supporters, promote fundraisers, and more, all with just a few clicks.
Many booster clubs seek help from third-party vendors for a variety of services. Oftentimes, they find themselves with expenses from many vendors that become disorganized and add up over time.
Instead of managing several different vendors and different problems, booster club software gives you one affordable solution for everything you need. In addition, it makes taking digital payments and tracking income and expenses easy so that you can uncover any inefficiencies or improper accounting practices.

Our Club Has Been Using Charms and Has Student Accounts — Why Is This a Bad Idea?
There’s a lot to like about Charms Office Assistant. This program has been a music program stalwart and can help schools and boosters communicate with students, manage assessment data, and collect payments.
We get the appeal of using Charms to support your band’s billing activities — the system is already in place, and you can collect payments from students and parents all in one platform. However, Charms wasn’t really designed for booster clubs. It was really designed to be used by the school or music director.
Most booster clubs are non-profits. The activities and best practices are different. For instance, non-profits can not fundraise for the benefit of one person. They must fundraise for the group as a whole. Also, fees can not be mandatory in a non-profit. You can certainly say “100% participation is highly encouraged,” but you can not require anyone to pay to participate.
By replacing Charms with a purpose-built booster solution, your club can:
