AUBURN, Calif. — Campspot and ResNexus will join four other companies in showcasing their front desk management systems during CalARVC’s Software Education Day.
The Feb. 27 event, which takes place at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California, is open to park operators throughout California and from across the U.S. and Canada.
“Park operators who attend our Software Education Day will be able to make back-to-back comparisons of six different front desk management systems,” said Debbie Sipe, CalARVC’s executive director, adding, “A reservation software education opportunity like this is unprecedented in the campground industry.”
Vendors who participate in the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. educational event will spend the day providing product demonstrations and holding question and answer sessions and roundtable discussions that will enable park operators to understand the unique capabilities of each software system so that they can determine which product best fits their needs.
Campspot and ResNexus signed up to participate in CalARVC’s software education event after CalARVC announced the event with four other vendors.
Campspot, which is co-located in Denver, Colo. and Grand Rapids, Mich., designed a proprietary reservation system that is being used by Northgate Resorts to manage its 11 campgrounds, which include nine Jellystone Parks. The system is also being used by 24 other Jellystone Parks, with another six onboarding the system this fall. Campspot is also marketing the system to campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across North America.
