"WebCheckout is a solid solution"

Comments: Our overall experience with web checkout has been wonderful and continues to grow with every progressive upgrade.

Pros: Love the integration and tech support for this software.

Cons: We wish there was a better calendaring system that would show the real-time check-in and check-out appointments by the tech and client

"WebCheckout in Media Education"

Comments: Our old loan inventory system was being decommissioned, so we had to find something new. Web Checkout filled all our needs and more. It has been an incredible improvement over our previous workflows.

Pros: Web Checkout is highly customizable, easy to use, entirely web based, and integrates with our existing Active Directory, Student Information System, user ID cards, and equipment barcodes. The best functions are the automated email reminders and flexible permission rules.

Cons: Initial setup of the integration was a bit tedious, but once it was setup it makes daily processes a breeze.

"Great product for higher education equipment loaning"

Comments: I used WCO for nearly 10 years. The company was very responsive to their clients' inputs and regularly updated the software to reflect those requested tweaks. The program was great to work with but offered a lot of details that weren't necessary for us. And it was a little pricey and we needed to consolidate expenses. Two other departments were using another software and we transferred to that system. For 10 years, the WCO never crashed and we never lost any data. WebCheckOut worked very well for us!

Pros: WCO is easy to use and intuitive. It has a lot of features to keep track of loans, reservations and details of your equipment and locations. There are multiple offerings to customize what you need, including invoices, emailing, SSO, ticket (repair) tracking and even a personnel scheduling feature. Running reports are very customizable and easy to do and cover a range of information (turn downs, overdue, usage, etc...). Adding and updating equipment was fairly easy to do.

Cons: We don't use the system anymore but we had several add on modules that we paid for. I don't remember exactly what was an added module and what features came with the basic software but we bought several modules over the years that made the system a bit pricey. I downloaded my patrons list manually because it was more money to have it work automatically with our system. Not a big deal since we only have about 3k clients but it was an added step. For us, there were a lot of extra fields that could not be removed. A more customizable view would have been nice. Any new software releases that came out were difficult for me to implement due to our firewall and having to work out access for the WCO support team (but I own most of that issue).

"Helpful but Not User Friendly"

Pros: I like that it helps us keep track of our events and checkouts so that we don't lose equipment. Overall, it offers a lot of flexibility especially with being able to write notes on reservations, checkouts, and equipment.

Cons: I wish the dashboard would stick without having to reset it up daily with my preferences. I also wish the dashboard view was more integrated into the main checkout page instead of its own page. I wish this system was more user friendly or they offered tutorial videos. I have a large rotating staff of student workers that I have to train and retrain on the various aspects of Webcheckout. I have had to create my own documentation on how to use it and still come across issues where things don't go right if a student worker misses a step. The system is not intuitive at all and needs to be taught and learned. There needs to be a way to delete equipment for good. I would also like an easy way to track our events vs. just our regular checkouts or scheduled tasks so I could pull reports on it. The set, strike, show isn't cutting it for us.

Hi Rifah, thanks for your time and feedback. We're pleased to know that WebCheckout aids in keeping track of your equipment.

The Dashboard now persists, so once you set it up, the information is readily available for the next time you login. This improvement was made after your request in our 2019 User Training. We also provided SXU with the Task Module to better track event details, a part from regular checkout/reservation information.

As we continue to improve and add to WebCheckout's countless features, we understand this can make training an every changing staff difficult to manage. We do update our online documentation, and will continue to host webinars to highlight new features of each release. Additionally, we do offer training services to take the burden of training off of the administrative team.

If we can provide any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to your account manager.

We hope you're well.

"Industry Standard, (but...)"

Comments: I have worked with Webcheckout for over 10 years. It has been the industry standard the whole time, and meets the need for most users. As an admin it takes a "programmer's head" to get used to, but that's just part of the territory. It's so powerful and can do so much, that it's going to be complex, and they do their best to keep it as simple as possible. Phone support is extremely responsive and capable.

Pros: The software does it all...especially now after well over a decade of upgrades and user feedback. The customer service is the best,

Cons: The software in places seems to have no input from designers. New users should expect good amount of training and "getting used to it" through practice. Things like calendar input can seem clunky, and not the same across the board. A streamlined mobile app interface would be nice (maybe it's extra money), and bar-code scanning isn't mac friendly.
