Boys & Girls Club of the Mountain Empire reduced delinquent payments by 93%

Across their 4 locations, 75% of payments were late, and they'd often never see those payments.

They were also juggling numerous systems for attendance, enrollment, communication, paperwork, and reporting.

With the risk of continuing to lose revenue (and sanity), they turned to Playground for a better solution.
