Codecademy from Skillsoft is well suited to persons who wish to quickly acquire practical knowledge and skills that can be immediately applied to support their work or project. On the other hand, Codecademy from Skillsoft is probably not appropriate for those looking for a more theoretical approach to the subject matter.

Maestro is great for managing my membership and is terrific with reservations. At this time I am not sure if there is any scenario where it is less appropriate. I guess it doesn't work well as an interface for a golf shop, for tee times, etc. And, any golf product we get doesn't speak well with Maestro, so maybe golf. But, they may have a solution for that too.

Pros
Skillsoft
  • The content is relevant to our projects, and therefore adds value to our goals.
  • The content is delivered in a way that is conducive to adult learning, e.g., chunked into bite-size amounts (not overwhelming), uses language that is easy to understand (no technical jargon), a good mix of didactic content and quizzes (the latter adds an element of interaction).
  • The user interface is logical and user-friendly.
  • Codecademy from Skillsoft makes it easy to track your progress, not only within a course, but also relative to your weekly target.

Cons
Skillsoft
  • Price too high, students cannot pay 150 euro per year
  • There should be a way to pay for a single class, my student only cares about Java

  • Guest Names - I do have some difficulty with guest names. Many people want two names on their member profile. When I use Schmoe, Joe And Jane, it capitalizes the A in and. If I use the ampersand I have issues with the name processing. So, just one primary member and no ampersand.
  • Creating New Folios - For some reason it is very easy to create a new folio under a member account and you have to finish creating it before you can back out of it. I have done that a few times but not a huge deal.
  • Access Levels - Is there an easy to follow list of access levels and what they include? I guess I should ask Maestro this. Maybe not an issue...

Maestro is what we are comfortable with and probably what we'll stay with, but it can be slow at times and lacks certain functionalities

I love Maestro support! They are always available or get back to you quickly. The employees that work at Maestro must get treated well because they are always positive and patient on the phone with me. And, even though I am not great with technology they always help me find a solution.

Maestro is the first lodging software I have reviewed. I do not have much other experience with lodging software so I am unable to compare. I do really like that Maestro has the support we need in an ever challenging customer service world. Thanks for being a great tool for our resort!
