Why Do I Need an App?
Well honestly, you don’t need an app. However, if you are interested in growing revenue/profit, our CampWorks Connect app is a great tool to help you. Very few businesses have their own app. Guests will be so impressed with the convenience and usefulness that they will be compelled to share the app with friends leading to new bookings.

Editing and publishing is very easy, and you will be amazed at just how quickly you can have your own app full of rich content.
Does it work on both Apple / Android?
Yes, it works on both Apple/Android. CampWorks Connect utilizes a leading-edge technology called Progressive Web Applications. It is a cross between a typical iphone/android app and a web site. This technology enables the app to act like a standard phone app with access to phone features (ie camera, sensors, gps, etc) has an icon like any other app, content accessible when offline, but runs like a web site making it easy to update without having to download app updates and it doesn’t care which operating system it is running on (ie iphone/android). It will work on phones, tablets, and even computers!
Can I approve advertisers?
We automatically screen all ads for potentially offensive content. Any questionable ads will be shared with you for approval before going live.
Where do guests download the app? How do guests find about it?
Marketing your app is critical to success. The app is easily shared using a link and can be put on your website, Facebook page, and in your reservation email confirmation letters. The app also has built in social media sharing capability making it really easy for guests to share the app with their friends. Lastly, we provide a QR Code for the link so you can print a sign to put on your desk to remind onsite guests to get the app.
Can I use CampWorks Connect without using your CampWorks software? Does it integrate with other management software?
CampWorks Connect is a complete stand alone mobile app. It can be used with or without CampWorks Reservation software. However without CampWorks software, integrated features such as online reservation booking and management, online check in, operations dashboards will not be available. Connect is designed only to work with CampWorks and does not integrate with other reservation systems.

However, if you want to reduce the cost and help your local economy, you can enroll in our advertiser partnership program. Through this program, you introduce us to local business by providing a link to our advertiser web site. We provide you with tools to share our information with other businesses and we do the rest.
