Differences between IClassPro & Activity Messenger

Canadian Support

Activity Messenger is a Canadian classroom management software with dedicated Canadian customer service.

As a result, we have an in-depth understanding of the specific needs of Canadian organizations. IClassPro, on the other hand, offers customer support in the USA.

Storing your data in Canada

IClassPro only allows data to be stored in the United States. Activity Messenger ensures that all data is stored in Canada and adheres to Canadian federal privacy laws and regulations.

This is a significant benefit to Canadian dance studios, gyms, swim schools and their clients. IClassPro raises privacy and compliance concerns because it does not store data in Canada.

Modern look

With a clean, minimalist and customer-centric registration path, Activity Messenger makes it easy to find the right class.Activity Messenger makes it easy to find the right class. The registration path is clean, minimalist, and customer-centric.


IClassPro was one of the pioneers. Modern registration platforms like Activity Messenger wouldn’t be what they are today if it wasn’t for them.

But their user interface is outdated for today’s world. It’s cluttered and there’s no easy way for parents to find the right class for their child, especially from a smart phone.

Integration with Canva

The Canva integration enables users to create stunning marketing materials and communications directly from within the platform. This makes designing and distributing professional content easy.

Online Form Generator

Most enrollment platforms are limited to serving only your enrollment processes and the classes you offer.

This means you still need paper, Google Forms, or even paid solutions like JotForms, SmartWaiver, or SurveyMonkey.

Activity Messenger takes a different approach.

Included with every subscription is a drag-and-drop form generator that will allow you to replace 99% of the paper documents you currently use.

Replace all your extra tools

I’ve been there – jumping from application to application, losing track, and wasting precious time. That’s why we made Activity Messenger.

It’s more than just a registration platform; it’s a set of tools to keep your business running smoothly.

Replace mailchimp, smartwaiver and jotform

But it’s not just about replacing MailchimpSurveyMonkeyEventbrite, Jotform and SmartWaiver.

It’s the ability to see everything—from registrations to surveys to email marketing—in one unified dashboard.

IclassPro is also aware of the importance of these other tools as well. In fact, they’ve blogged about it. But they expect you to learn another tool and not have all your data in the same place.

Automate tasks no one has time for

Imagine if you could delegate to a reliable, efficient team member (who never calls in sick) those time-consuming administrative tasks like collecting waiver signatures, membership renewals, distributing surveys, and sending meeting start reminders!

That’s where Activity Messenger comes in. It acts as your virtual assistant. It’s like adding an extra set of hands to your team and making your team more efficient.
