Too many great things to say about Lodgix
Pros: The support is phenomenal - questions are answered and problems are often sorted in minutes rather than the days you usually have to wait on other websites. I am EXTREMELY technically-challenged but with the awesome and extremely detailed manual (and often Brent's help) have been able to get to a point where I am confidently able to run more and more of my business directly through Lodgix, using my iphone or ipad as much as my desk computer. This is important to me as I manage 20 + villas as well as take bookings for them - so I don't necessarily have enough time at my desk as I could do with! I can now write up and send out invoices or receipts from my phone as I sit in line at the bank. I reckon I am still only utilizing about 25% of the settings and modules available with the general subscription, I discover new time-savers constantly. The site is extremely well set out too - easy to access anything anytime and go from one screen to another. Cons: Any problems that I have encountered have generally been because of our somewhat remote location in the Caribbean. Most of this been overcome however. Overall: The fact that you can see availability at multiple properties on one page is what drew me to Lodgix. After much searching for a booking calendar that would make things easier rather than just work for me, I got a free trial. I have never looked back....as with anything that makes life easier in the long run, there is a set-up period that can be tedious with lots of data entry. Even this they make quicker by allowing you to easily copy any relevant input from one property to another. With a busy season approaching I was eager to skip things and just get the basic calendar online. It is only as and when I have had periods of time to browse through the site that I have implemented more and more of the settings available. Each one makes my life easier and frees up more of my time in the long run. It seems that everything has been thought of, and if I think of anything that would be useful to me personally Brent invariably makes it happen! I cannot recommend Lodgix highly enough!!

We were looking for an easy to use backend software to integrate with our website to take online bookings. We started searching the internet via google and came across many different solutions. Some where extremely expensive, some where extremely hard to implement, while others, couldn't get the job done as they were lacking features. After trailing about 5 different ones, we came across Lodgix. After playing with it and learning how it works, along with emailing the extremely helpful staff, we found that Lodgix was the easiest solution that was the most cost effective with this amount of features.

My Success is because of Brent and Lodgix
I've been with Lodgix now for 2 years. I was starting from ground zero being a property manager when I came across a website in my search for a web-designer. The site was for Vacation Rentals in Florida. This site had beautiful colors, simple to use even a 3rd grader could use it and I liked the flow of ease to see the rentals and calendars. I figured if I can use this then what a great design for my personal business I was starting. I called the number online and 30 days later I had my own site, with the software of Lodgix. I get great reviews from my customers of how easy it is to reserve a home, and the fast turn around from inquires have put me ahead of the game here in Tahoe. Customer Service! Poor Brent and his staff to put up with me!. They all have been gems. I love the personal touch, the help with my site and my 200 questions because I can't seem to get it. They always educate me, get me to were I need to be and success has always been my outcome. I have recommended the product to a dear friend of mine in Costa Rica and they thank me often for Brent and Lodgix. The hardest part is taking the time to learn it. Its not hard to learn, its taking the time to learn the information they have given you online. It has pictures, it has 101 for dummies like me when it comes to website information and input. I do wish when there is new updates they could hold a webinar for us that learn by visual, not reading. Thank you for such a great product, and I hope to meet you all some day!

Great easy to use software!
I've been using Lodgix for managing our Vacation Rental business for over a year and we love how easy to use it is, how people can reserve online, how it syncs to all the listings we have on the internet and some many other features. I totally recommend it!

Tried a couple – subscribed to Lodgix.com
Pros: - Customer Services: Soon after registering for my free 30 day trial, the President of the company jumped in and started helping me configure the app. to fit me specific needs (pricing model, etc..). I was surprised, impressed and thankful! He was obviously engaged and willing to spend the time necessary to ensure I was successful with his solution. I knew then that I would be able to pick up the phone or e-mail to get a question answered, quickly. - GUI: Seems to be the most up-to-date one in my price range. - Price: STRONG value. - Intuitive: Obviously, you have to move through various screens to manage different aspects of the application and customer information ¿¿¿ however, all in all pretty easy navigation. - Functionality: everything ¿¿¿ and then some ¿¿¿ that I need. Cons: There is a learning curve. However, I got through it with some quick responses from tech support. Overall: Yes - I have and will continue to recommend this product. It's a lot of value for $19.95 per month. I also like the fact that I don't feel like any old customer. Being in the technology business I hear a lot about partnering. However, I had never really experienced it until I started working with Lodgix.com. even though this is a micro business - it is my business and it is important to me. it's good to know I have a "partner" i can reach out to for help in this area. Additionally, I think the leaders of Lodgix,.com have built - and will continue to build - their business on their genuine commitment to help VR owners be successful - rather than building a business on sales - which frankly, I see too much of in today's ultra competitive business environment. Lastly, I am not a relative of one of the owners. Just found these folks through and internet search on Google less than 30 days ago. As a matter I have not even paid them yet
