First-of-its-kind ActionCOACH online portal launched

Business coaching franchise ActionCOACH has extended its professional offering, launching an innovative new platform for partners. Announced this week, the new ActionCOACH online portal provides business owners with detailed information and insights on their operation, better preparing them for future growth.

It’s a boom for ActionCOACH clients, who can now set goals, track performance, identify trends and chart growth, all while staying in direct communication with their ActionCOACH.

Paul Henshall, ActionCOACH CEO Australia and New Zealand said the key to the new addition was an intuitive business dashboard, which also provides a platform for continuous learning through video tutorials.

“Using the portal, our clients can quite literally see their business goals coming to life. Our clients are able to set goals, monitor trends and performance in alignment with these goals, and stay in constant contact with their ActionCOACH,” Henshall said.

The new ActionCOACH online portal sees business objectives and insights split into a series of easy to use tabs, where owners can set specific goals over a five year period.

Henshall said having a visual goal list to continually reference promoted positive business momentum.

“It is widely accepted that tabulating your goals is the first step towards staying focused and achieving them,” he said.

“When you are focused on what you are doing, know where to direct your energy, and can see your progress, you are more likely to achieve what you have set out to do. The online coaching portal was designed to help clients remain clearly focused on their goals and stay on track.”

The new integration comes at a good time for the business coaching franchise. As business owners become more reliant on cloud-based technology, coaches must be able to leverage new platforms boost communication.

ActionCOACH Mark Daniels said the new online portal was the first step in cementing the brand as a leader in the technology space.

“World class companies have world class IT platforms. If we want to be the best and offer our clients the best in terms of tools, accessibility and usability, we must move with and leverage IT,” he said.

“The new online portal brings everything together and gives clients, coaches and their support teams the structure to optimise their coaching programs.”

ActionCOACH development

While the new ActionCOACH online portal is a massive boost for both business owners and franchise partners, it represents just one element of a wider brand refocus.

Henshall said that the portal would not replace one-on-one coaching, but instead enhance interaction between coaches and clients.

“The portal complements existing caching services to our clients and gives them real time access to meaningful intelligence on the performance of their businesses,” he said.

“Similar to popular exercise tracking platforms such as Strava, our portal allows our clients to set tasks and goals, engage with their coaches and other members, track their progress in alignment with their goals, and get daily insights into business performance.”

“Our portal is the first of its kind in the business coaching world and we are excited and proud to bring this innovation to our clients.”
