Hubtiger offers two months free subscription in addition to monthly discount for ACT members signing up in January

Posted on in Business News ,Brands & Products News , Cycles News

HubtigerBack in November the ACT partnered with the web and mobile platform Hubtiger to enable cycle shops to manage all workshop operations in just one app.

Hubtiger has already proven to be hugely popular in the industry, and has been featured in various publications including Cycling Industry News and BikeBiz.

Despite its relative youth, the platform has already assigned over 65,000 bicycle-related service tasks. Praise has been plentiful amongst those that have tried the app out, Ricardo Rios from BikeXtore deemed the app to be a "game changer" for the industry:

"When we read in The Bicycle Retailer all the things that Hubtiger can do, we didn't believe it so we immediately contacted them to try the system. We have been using it now and it is more awesome than we expected. We are now a 100% digital shop. It is a game changer for the cycling industry."

The aim of Hubtiger is to help bike shops do better business by improving workshop efficiency, increasing revenue and enhancing the customer experience. The web solution manages everything from online/app bookings, job card scheduling, automated/direct communication, quote approvals and finally pushes the quote through to the Point-of-Sale (Vend, Lightspeed, Xero and others) as a "parked sale". Hubtiger will also send automated SMS reminders to customers who have not serviced their bike in 6 months.

Hubtiger is available to your customers too. For the cyclist, Hubtiger is a mobile app, which helps them look after their bikes by integrating with Strava and tracking the bike down to each component letting the cyclist know when they need to service. Cyclists can then book their bike in with the preferred bike shop, track the service and pay instantly.


Benefit from two months FREE subscription

In addition to the discount that ACT members already receive off the monthly price of the app, Hubtiger have now offered a further ACT benefit of two months FREE subscription to any retailer signed up before the end of January.

ACT Silver and Gold members receive a 15% discount off each Hubtiger product price. Cytech accredited ACT members will be given an increased discount of 20% off each product price.

The app offers three separate packages starting from just £32 per month (£27.20 / per month for ACT members, £25.60 for Cytech accredited ACT members). With this you'll receive a number of benefits, including integration into POS, customer and bike history, unlimited services, users and service reminders, in-app messaging and more. The packages then increase in price slightly, offering the bike shops more add-ons, such as extra technicians and SMS's, bike shop analytics and even a loyalty scheme for specific POS.

Setup is less than an hour if the bike shop has a POS system that can be integrated into and training is just as seamless. All Hubtiger users are also able to access 24/7 Support from their expert team.
