British Judo is proud to announce it will be upgrading to a bespoke CRM system known as ‘The Dojo’ to help improve the way in which members and other key stakeholders interact with the sport. The new system is being introduced following the results of the Membership Insight Survey conducted last year.
The upgrade is a significant investment from British Judo and will help bring the sport into the 21st century, by replacing historical and time-consuming paper-based tasks with fast, accurate and efficient digital tools and processes for our members and clubs. Our plan to improve the Judo experience for all members, clubs and fans, will see a positive knock-on effect for participation levels, elite level performances and growing support for Judo.
The Dojo has gone live recently and will make every interaction with British Judo faster and more convenient, and act as members’ mobile ‘membership passport’ which will allow members to see their membership and grade credentials live at the ease of a quick login. Some key benefits include the ability to:
- More streamlined online membership application for new joiners
- Renew your existing membership and insurance online with less hassle
- Update your membership details in seconds
- Find your first/new club in your area with ease
- Online grades and payments with a new grade guidance
- Stay up to date with all the British Judo news that is relevant to you
- Purchase official British Judo merchandise from our new online store (due for launch in late December)
- Contact with BJA is more streamlined allowing members to focus more time on Judo
- See your coaching credentials live
- Bookings and payments confirmed automatically by email for easier record keeping
The Dojo will also be fully compliant with the upcoming GDPR law changes around personal data, and British Judo members will be able to manage what data is held about them by updating their information on the online member portal.
We are working on a range of new upgrades which we will be rolling out over the next 12-18 months including:
- Find, book and pay for your nearest official, coach or referee course in a few clicks
- Attend online courses
- New look resource library
- Online tournament license application and payment
- Register for local events and book tickets online seamlessly
Further details will be released over the coming weeks and months to keep all members informed of the progress of the project. We will be posting a number of different help articles over the coming days to help members get the most out of the new system in the early weeks of the launch.
The Dojo will also help British Judo to provide a better service to members and clubs, with a single source of data from which we can more effectively manage member and club communications, requests, transactions and queries.
Due to the large amounts of data being transferred over from our old system (over 900,000 individual data fields), there will be certain data discrepancies. We are just asking our members to report any issues that they feel may be incorrect to firstname.lastname@example.org. When emailing, please try and provide as much information as possible to allow the issue to be corrected in the shortest amount of time.
This is an exciting time for British Judo, and we are looking forward to revealing more details about how The Dojo will help revolutionise our sport and reflect our commitment to driving mass participation and elite level success for Judo.
