to enable club owners around the world to take their business to the next level
Ashbourne launched in the early 90’s, spawning from the realisation that I was one of the few members at my gym honouring a monthly direct debit payment.
The idea I had for our service was simple.
We would manage contracts for gym owners and ensure that members were paying their dues each month.
Over the past 25 years, the company has come a long way. Our core business of payment collections has evolved into an all-in-one gym and club management solution including a complete software package, support team and even turnstile installations.
As we have done since the start, we continue to develop our products alongside gym owners. We strive to make the lives of our customers easier and their businesses more efficient and profitable.
All-In-One Payment & Memebership Management Solution
Unlike other direct debit collection companies, Ashbourne also provide a complete integrated gym management software system. All the software a gym or health club could need. Our system has a real-time link to a member's payment status meaning no uploading of data or cross-referencing, saving clubs time and money.
Ashbourne will provide each club with 500 customer branded membership cards included or upgrade to a biometric fingerprint reader. We simply charge a fixed fee per direct debit that goes through the system.
Easy to use and packed full of features
Our systems take the hassle away from gyms with their payment collection. We become the club's customer services department dealing with member queries and payments. Our software system means that the clubs will know the payment status of everyone in the club and that everyone’s payments are up to date. Our software will also assist the club owner knowing who is or is not using their gym, which is great for membership retention.
“At McCaulay’s Health Clubs and Gyms we utilise the full suite of Ashbourne services. The core payment collection service has served us well for a number of years and the manor it gets done in has been consistently professional and utterly reliable."
McCaulay’s Health Club
"Having juggled payment collection companies alongside software providers, I appreciate more than anyone the value of having a centralised provider of management services. If any of my members have a payment query they deal with Ashbourne directly, allowing me to concentrate on running my club."
Gym & Tonic
"The dashboard Ashbourne provides shows me which members are at the most imminent risk of leaving the club. With this in mind, I’ve been using the text message feature to contact these members and engage with them before it’s too late. I hate losing members when I could have done something about it, so this is great!"
