"I've been through six software conversions in my career. The conversion with ABC has been by far and above the best one I've ever experienced"

- Mike Alpert, The Claremont Club, President/CEO


Case Study


Stan Clark, founder of The Claremont Club, was ready to get out of practicing law when he decided to open a tennis club in Claremont, California in 1973. He started with two tennis courts, and eventually added four more and a small pool. The Claremont Club continued adding on to accommodate the needs of their members. Today, the health club spans over 18 acres of land with state-of-the-art equipment  with special programs for Spinal Cord Injury, Neuromuscular Disease, Post Cancer Care, and Pediatric Cancer Care. Alongside these specific programs they offer childcare, a day spa, group exercise, personal training, tennis courts and swimming pools.


The process of converting from one software company to another is alarming for many gym owners. This was a big challenge for The Claremont Club when they discovered their software provider at the time did not offer the functionality and services they needed to grow. A few major challenges included:

  • Limited reporting capabilities
  • Manual processes such as calculating commission rates
  • Lack of visibility so trainers did not have to access their commission reports

The Claremont Club struggled to find software to fit their exact needs. Mike Alpert, President/CEO, came to ABC Financial with these challenges and immediately was presented with a course of action to overcome them.
