Pros
We love working with them. They are tremendously helpful and always have a solution.
Seems to be a relatively small company and I feel like I get personalized service and folks there are aware of my customizations. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the product.
The current support staff is very good and very responsive.
Cons
The setup and training were very poor so this compounded into problems over the years, some of which we are still trying to get fixed.
As a result we struggled for the first 6 months.
It is difficult to call this a con, but because the software is so versatile it can be a challenge to navigate.

Unabashed Barefoot Supporters!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are very happy users of Barefoot. Their support responsiveness is great, they are constantly taking input from clients to mae minor and major improvements to the program, and their willingness to help adapt the software to our specific needs has been hugely helpful to our ability to grow.

Pros

To us the customizable nature of Barefoot is critical. We deal with luxury properties, each one of which is unique - the ability to manage them as such and not be forced to make everything exactly the same for each property allows us to set ourselves apart from our competitors.

Cons

From an accounting standpoint it takes a bit of time for people to get used to thinking of things in terms of due dates and not expecting the Barefoot to function like a piece of accounting software such as Quickbooks. But in many ways this is actually a good thing as it puts discpline on the processes that effect owner funds and advance deposits

Vendor response

Thank you for your support and the continued opportunity to work with you and your exceptional team. The Barefoot team

Tricky roll out, very good support, so far so good

Reviewed 5 years ago

I feel like through the implementation process I got to know the folks at barefoot pretty well. Seems to be a relatively small company and I feel like I get personalized service and folks there are aware of my customizations. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the product.

Pros

It can be customized to meet most of my business needs. It's very robust- meaning there are tons of features to use and some very clever functions. The auto email module called "letters" works great once it's fully set up. Managing pics and rental calendar from inside barefoot is so much better than managing inside of each separate channel partner. Some very clever features and reports are hidden inside Barefoot Agent- you have to find them though. Thankfully support is pretty good and often very fast with answers. So far the software has no bugs or glitches either- seems very stable. The Vrbo integration is good.

Cons

Barefoot and many other platforms assume that the vacation rental properties are owned and managed by separate parties and so it uses a Trust Accounting system. It was a bit of extra work on our end to set this up and to make it work for us. Some of the pricing tools that are available in Barefoot are not supported by its partners. The integration with airbnb is not great. On vrbo/ airbnb aka channel partners, some features that were available to us pre-integration are not available after integration which makes setting rates a challenge. Customized reports can take a long time. Due to the number of features and reports it's tough to learn them all during implementation. It's not the easiest software to interface with or the prettiest to look at.

Some great features but not enough support

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The backend accounting for owners is good. Barefoot is always looking for innovations.

Cons

The setup and training were very poor so this compounded into problems over the years, some of which we are still trying to get fixed. One of the components we were drawn to work order function when we were purchasing the software but this component has never worked for us.

Vendor response

Hi Christina, It sounds like we need to continue to provide training for you and your team. We also would be happy to discuss the work order module. Thank you, Claiborne and the Barefoot Team.

Robust software with great customer service

Reviewed 5 years ago

We have our calendars and our property information all in one place which is a huge timesaver for us. We work with an outside company that handles our listings on many of the national sites and they connect to Barefoot with updates happening in real time. Barefoot offers an option to integrate with Air BnB.

Pros

Barefoot overall is working well for us. It has taken us a long time to get it set up and to learn everything we need to use it efficiently however we are happy that we purchased it and that that our direct contact there and support desk people are quick to respond, helpful and patient. We don't have any other software to compare it to so cannot help there but for us it is working well.

Cons

The first thing that comes to mind is the website property listings. They have two levels to choose from and we chose the lower level (less expensive). It's limited in how the property pages are set up and searched, and we've had to unwillingly adjust. I will be honest, we wish we had our old website back, as we did not know the change was going to be a step down. Another significant downfall with the less expensive website is that our property ratings (the stars and reviews) could not be ported over - and - the functionality isn't available for us to have new ratings/reviews on the property page. That is a real dilemma for us and worth noting. We're hoping that it will be added. We are able to upgrade our website when we are ready to do it.

Vendor response

Hi Brenda. Thanks for your review. We have some ideas for you about your concerns with your website and we will plan to reach out to set a meeting. Thanks for being a Barefoot client.

Barefoot is great

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The software is almost completely customizable to each company's needs. Once you have a good grip on the platform, it is pretty simple to make and tweak your own reports, property attributes, features, etc.

Cons

The user interface is busy and leaves much to be desired.

Vendor response

Kristen. Thanks for your continued partnership with Barefoot. We are enjoying the bringing on even more functionality with Vantage over this year. I welcome a conversation with you about suggestions for streamlining the interface. Claiborne and the Barefoot Team.
