“We probably make money with the system. The cost of registrations through ABC is more than offset by the time saved in terms of human capital, as well as the paper saved, postage saved and value of the image we put forth to our clients.” Kep, The Diocese of New Jersey
"I can’t say enough good things about ABC Signup. I just love the program. It has really made a difference in our cooking school and the way we handle our paperwork and registrations. It is easy, straight forward, and flexible.”
Seeking a system with the right ingredients
The Houston, TX cooking school with the “Big Adventures in Cooking” slogan uses a number of creative platforms to teach individuals of all ages how to cook and work together in the kitchen. Year-around classes, holiday workshops, 12 weeks of summer camps and a Spring Break camp are just some of the offerings on Camp Cook’s menu.
Taking registrations without an online system required too much data entry and manual payment processing, invoicing and confirmations. Camp Cook’s first experience with an online registration system didn’t fare much better, as the system was too complicated and difficult to use, and any customizations required work with technical teams and additional costs.
Add a pinch of ABC Signup
“I customize a lot of templates and really love the fact that I can do that with ABC Signup and cut, copy and paste events as I need to,” said Mary Aragon, program director at Camp Cook.
And with ABC Signup, Camp Cook’s customizations come with no added costs or long meetings with the system provider.
“I can’t say enough good things about ABC Signup. I just love the program,” Aragon said. “It has really made a difference in our cooking school and the way we handle our paperwork and registrations. It is easy, straight forward, and flexible.”
Share the recipe
“It’s definitely increased our revenues, as people like to register online – they can register at home in their underwear if they want to. And it makes our lives easier. We can just put the information out there, it works with our merchant account, and the registrations come in.”
Now, Aragon is doing what anyone with a good recipe does – sharing it.
“I’ve given [ABC Signup’s] name out several times to people looking for a registration system,” she said. “It has served us really well.”
