AIF Announces Massage Industry Partnership with Solo Business App, Keepon

Sep 14, 2021 | by Molly Fabri

National Massage Therapist educator, Australian Institute of Fitness (AIF), has announced a new industry partnership with small business management platform Keepon.

AIF qualifies hundreds of massage therapists each year and is constantly looking for additional ways to enrich its students’ experience and set them up for success in their massage careers. The partnership with solo business management app, Keepon, aims to achieve just that.

Described as the ‘sidekick to your business dream, designed to help empower you to change the world, one client at a time’, Keepon will enable AIF massage therapists to organise, track and nurture their relationships with leads and clients. Through the app, therapists can easily schedule one-on-one appointments with clients, accept multiple payment types, automate payments, record all of their transactions and more. This labour-saving simplicity eradicates hours of admin time that students may not have fully accounted for during their studies.

Commenting on the new partnership, AIFs Head of Operations, Kim Horner, said; “A passion for massage and being a successful solo business owner do not always go hand-in-hand; there is so much admin and behind the scenes work that goes into running a massage business, that you can never be fully prepared for until you throw yourself in the deep end. It is evident that a tool like Keepon will be hugely beneficial to our massage graduates. By freeing them up from performing endless hours of arduous admin tasks, they can spend more time focusing on providing a quality service to their clients.”

Keepon’s Co-Founder and CEO, Eamon Pielow, added; “AIF aims to arm its students with everything they need to launch a career in massage or fitness, so it was a natural fit for both parties to work together. At Keepon we strive to provide all the tools one needs to successfully run and manage a business, from online bookings, client management and automated reminders, to the facilitation of payments, simplified finance management and much more. Our goal is to make running a business easy, and to take the administrative burden out of it. In partnership with AIF, we can’t wait to help more massage therapists do this.”

AIF is excited to add Keepon to its suite of exclusive Industry Partners, and to equip its students with further tools and skills for success in the massage industry.
