Smart Space has a host of features especially designed for businesses in the sports, health and fitness sectors. Although It has just been launched, a wide variety of tools are available on the paid version.

Smart Space also intends to provide a wide range of tools for ordinary users through "My Smart Space" as a way of integrating your personal life with your "Business Connections". Whilst the system does provide some features in this realm, these have been limited whilst we get the Trader Resources up to scratch.

Whilst not exhaustive, here is a list of the major features of the Smart Space web site for Traders:

System Configuration

An unlimited number of Resource Categories and Resources can be set up, although there is a limit of 12 Resources per category. A Resource can be anything from  a Sports Court to a Consulting Room a piece of Equipment or a Service Staff person. Configuration for these resources can be done in a number of ways, often at three levels - Global, by Resource Category or by Resource.

  • Set up Opening Hours globally
  • Special hours for Holidays or Special Days can be set
  • Hours for Resource Categories or indivdiual Resources can be made within Opening Hours
  • What appears on your website and how it appears can be individualised

 Data Management

Customer data can be input by individual Traders or by users themselves. Initially much of the data will be input by participating Traders, but as the website becomes more popular, I anticipate that users will register on Smart Space with the express purpose of finding a Trader that meets their requirements. Features include:

  • One registration that Users use for all Traders
  • Duplicate registration checks
  • Individual customer registration for each Trader
  • Easy search functions
  • Minimise your active list to reduce list load times
