"Great customisable booking system with excellent support"

What do you like best?

Fully customizable, always updating with new features, extensions to link to services such as mail chimp, waivers etc

What do you dislike?

Checkfront can be quite complicated for the new user, or if you have complicated product offerings, that said, the customer support works with you to ensure that you get it right.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Checkfront was great for one of my clients who ran the largest paintball operation on the west coast of the united states. We were able to set up a bespoke system across 4 different business units, all with different tax rates and product offerings. Having a robust booking and payment system increased bookings and reduced no shows at the parks.

"Great website for small businesses!!"

What do you like best?

I can add my "products", set the prices, and I'm ready to go! It walks you through set up so it's really easy. You put in the price and taxes and any parameters that you want that item to have.

What do you dislike?

Some things are a little confusing. If you are not sure what it is talking about or meaning it doesn't explain it very well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is great. It is like you have your own Expedia or Orbit site for your customers. The only way you can go with this software is up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this program you can literately set up and start booking. It keeps track of everything. All of the reports are in one place. You can see all the booking and such on one page. It is super easy and super beneficial.

What Reservation solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Awesome product Awesome support "

What do you like best?

I book over a hundred volunteers each year and it's a one-person show here. I don't know how I did it before CheckFront, I really don't. So many steps are now automated for me and it's a breeze to keep track of bookings. I use notifications a lot to send volunteer handbooks, orientation videos and other important documents that I used to have to track and send manually. What a relief to be done with that and to be using notifications instead.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. It works just as expected and if I don't understand something there's great support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You won't be sorry. It's easy to learn, support is fantastic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I said under what I like best. I used to have to keep track of emails I'd sent, or not sent, and due dates for contacts as well. Now it's simple, I use notifications. At each step in the booking process from reservation to final payment I have automatically generated notifications that contain all the information my customers need and I don't have to manage it anymore. For a small volunteer organization, that's so valuable.

"Helpful for small businesses.Awesome booking system and also a great site builder"

What do you like best?

Complete one stop application for your booking system. Good customization for booking simple transactions and reporting. I also liked the robust site builder supported by Checkfront.

What do you dislike?

The product does not have too many options for inventory management. Some features required the help of support team which could have been featured better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it to understand it. At least give it a trial. You will love the features it has.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can develop a great reservation system to help our customers do online booking and make payments through internet.

"support at 5 str"

What do you like best?

THe product itself offer very nice features, but my review won't be about them. Explore by yourself and you'll see. What it TRULY makes the difference are the people behind this company: I've been client with them for a compnay first and then I turned to be a "prospect customer" anonymously for another company, and I have always been surprised by the customer service quality.

- fast responses

- qualify responses (they are the only one in between so many companies that understood my business needs, even if I copy-pasted the same text to them and all their competitors --> means BRAIN ACTIVATED while reading

- flexibility in customizing the configuration and even their product to suite your needs

- smart and nice people

I would love to see this approach in building a company and creating this excellent sense of customer caring in so many other sw companies around the web.

I can only highly suggest them and their product

What do you dislike?

for vacation rental channels manager only1 connection is available at the moment. That's a pity, as there is such a huge offer out there and therefore it is really limiting the possibility to interact with them with the infrastructure you already have (beside being a developer and creating your own interface trough api, but that's not so easy for all).

Recommendations to others considering the product

1) have a look at the interfaces with business partners

2) ask for support and TEST them for support: that's the best part!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vacation Rentals for rooms AND apartments. THe main big issue for me was renting both of them (rent single rooms within apartments or rent the entire apartment) and managing automatically availability, and checkfront do so smothly! Plus, I sell as well additional activities for my clients and they can shop everything in one place with checkfront. So easy, it's amazing

"Difficult booking program"

What do you like best?

I don’t like using checkfront because the program is unable to book multiple fitness class a year or more out internally.

What do you dislike?

I don’t like the fact I can’t boom multiple classes in advance. You have to enter classes month by month and date by date. This is very time consuming in a work place and enable employees to get other task done in a timely matter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Build a software that is able to book reservations internally without added date by date month by month. For an example, of administrative wanted to book a fitness class a year out the software should give administrators that option internally to save time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None, the system is not idea for a community center or fitness club

"Good but Expensive"

What do you like best?

I use this booking engine to book clients. It is good but expensive. I like the high res images it displays for each property.

What do you dislike?

The monthly price per month of 49.99 is a little steep.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just use it for a booking platform.
