Pros

Easy to deploy, love the multi-calendar screen, great housekeeping coordination feature, and time saving templates with automated send features. Customer service is very good.
IGMS has some areas to improve but is already the leader in my opinion because they are focused on continual improvement of the product and provide excellent customer support.
Nothing gives me more joy than writing good review about good product that I tried. First of all iGMS is so easy to use and it gives You full control on Your accounts.

Pros

Easy to use, good connection with few platform, good user friendly design. Some of the features are good.
The customer support is excellent and they are constantly updating and improving. As you grow in number of listings the pricing becomes one of the best in the industry.
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.

Cons

I did all corrections that were showing errors upon launch.
Currently no option to link to our own website but this is under development apparently.
Once in a while the app stops working and we need to contact customer service to make it work again and it usually takes a few days.

Cons

Long time to receive an answer and they reply without looking at your enquiry, just sending random links to their knowledge base. Just useless if you have an urgent problem.
Difficult functionality, unable to put in standard restrictions or rules that you can when dealing with the channels directly.
Response time can be delayed due to timezone challenges.

Best option

Reviewed 2 years ago

Very happy

Pros

The only CMS that can handle VRBO/Expedia without losing the payment portal. App can be laggy, but browser experience is solid. Software architecture superior to competitors like HostAway and Guesty. Doesn’t hurt that it’s half the price of HostAway

Cons

Needs a few improvements to things like length of stay settings and automations, but nothing critical
