Pros

I like this company, their culture, and their obvious commitment to the client. The software is very intuitive, user-friendly, and has a fantastic design.

JL

Jamie L.

It has been good working with them and the customer support has been wonderful. The learning curve is really steep so it just takes time to get things really set up and understood.

How it is able to help with so many aspects of my business. I love how I can use it to help with guest communications or just use it to sync calendars.

Pros

My onboarding specialist is not "just doing her job", she actually does much more than that. I cannot thank her enough for the great help she has been, and her patience with me.

RW

Roman W.

The customer care is awesome. We have 175+ properties across several cities and we like to push the boundaries of what's possible with technology so I had a lot of questions.

Andrew C.

What a good idea to have adopted this solution and I particularly appreciate the customer support. Responsive and effective even if in the end I have not often had need.

Cons

Difficult functionality, unable to put in standard restrictions or rules that you can when dealing with the channels directly.

ca

christopher a.

Constant double bookings and horrible support.

RY

Roy Y.

Response time can be delayed due to timezone challenges.

EP

Erica P.

Cons

Even then the damage was done, because they had synced without checking our settings, they were permanently overwritten and we had to rebuild all of the properties.

DB

Dan B.

Too many bugs, post 2017 no feedback from large users was considered, every bug was expensive, support was (sorry) horrible.

BH

BH H.

We also had to cancel 20 reservations in a panic. They have given us another agent now who still doesn't understand the basic settings.
