Frequently Asked Questions
What is your fee for online reservations?
For our Silver and Gold plans, you can add our online reservation module with unlimited reservations for a low monthly fee. Our Platinum plan includes online reservations at no cost.
What is the cost to use your reservation and property management system?
We offer 3 competitively priced plans so that you can choose the plan that fits your company's needs and so you don't have to pay for options you won't use. Please visit our Pricing page for more information on pricing and the features included with each plan.
What are some of the ways that Cobalt Silver can save/make us money?
When it comes to saving money, the biggest savings will be in the cost of personnel and their time. With the automated reports and features in Cobalt Silver, the time savings alone will be substantial.
When it comes to making money, the ability to have online reservations, automated email campaigns, and on-demand marketing reports will provide you with extensive money making opportunities. If you would like a more exact estimate on the savings/profitability of using Cobalt Silver please contact us and we'll provide you with a free report based upon your operation.
Do you offer online reservations with "live availability"?
Yes, our online reservations forms will only display live availability. You can also setup parameters on what you would like displayed online (based upon minimum lengths of stay, individual campsites/boat models, etc.).
What are some of the core features that your system offers?
The list is quite extensive, but some of the important ones are: PCI compliance, multi-property functionality, central reservations functionality, daily/monthly accounting reports (that can be exported and then imported into your accounting software of choice), marketing reports, industry leading programming (including cancellation policies, online reservation notifications, automatic email reminders, etc.).
How long does it take to get setup with your system?

When there's a software upgrade will I have to pay for it?
