Checkfront is very intuitive and user friendly which makes it easy to train new seasonal staff quickly. We operate out of several different locations. Each outpost manager has the ability to go into checkfront and modify inventory based on their needs and availability, which makes communication easy and eliminates overbooking
The customer and inventory calendar views allow me to "play Tetris" with lodging assignments to optimize guest experience.

24sessions is perfect for appointments such as coaching (my use case) where you want them to be able to go into your booking calendar, choose a time and schedule the appointment - or to schedule it from your end. They they get an email on creation and reminder email. I find it not helpful or at least, not at all intuitive, for setting up a host created meeting immediately. You can create it so you can be live at anytime, but host created isn't as any to set up

I use 24sessions predominantly as I have large discount with it and it works for scheduling clients. The user interface is helpful for past meetings. 24sessions is click and go - no account or software is needed for the client. Zoom and Google Meet do have dial-in capabilities. Zoom is more widely known so potentially more trusted for clients, even though similar abilities. Zoom is more customisable in the call (turn off certain thing or on others). Google Meet is great for google account clients, but a surprising number don't have Google accts I've found.

  • Easy video calling for scheduled appointments has meant customer retention as they don't need specific software etc to have a call.
  • Negative impact whilst our internet has been slow as I've been unable to use the product well as dial in to the call using a phone option.
  • Emails reminders has meant more clients turning up for the calls leading to retained income and happier customers.
