Pros

The support has an amazing actitud and vibe. They are on top of things to help the user.
After years of use, my favorite thing about Checkfront is the helpful support team. They always provide detailed, competent and helpful answers.
Ease of use, very intuitive. I was nervous about the quality of the support after our free trial expired, but have found Checkfront staff to be very helpful and responsive to all of my questions.

Pros

Xola has the BEST feature set, an amazing look and feel that your customers will love and they have a solid support team - the friendliest and most helpful ever.
The best part about Xola is that they do the heavy lifting for you. They get the booking software up on the site for you and it works great.
We have been using this software for 4 years and love it. We are continually contacted by other systems, but this is by far our favorite.

Cons

Extremely disenchanted with the service. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO BLOW CUSTOMERS OFF--how UNPROFESSIONAL.
Monthly cost is quite high- we are a very small business and no discounts available and packages unable to be tailored to our needs so we are paying for things we do not require.
During covid, the hibernation plan means that your website goes offline.

Cons

Unable to book with different email if same name (problem when working with concierge bookings). Cannot assign guides if turn around time is tight from one event to the next.
One other thing that is slightly annoying is I have to refresh the page or close then open the app to get it to refresh to see if there are any other bookings.
My issue is they are making you pay for all of the functionality instead of just paying for what you use.
