Check-Inn Monthly Software Update


Posted on September 3, 2014

Today we released an update to Check-Inn v5.0, release 93. We release updates on a monthly basis. Today’s release contains a large number of bug fixes and other changes that you may or may not notice impact your system functionality.

We released a larger than usual number of bug fixes as part of our ongoing development of Check-Inn v6.0. Any update to the current system (5.0) will also be part of Check-Inn 6.0, which will allow for a smooth transition once the new system is released (tentatively scheduled for late 2014/early 2015).

Please give Innsoft Support a call if you have any questions about the current release available for download. To download the new release, click the Question Mark in the upper left corner of Check-Inn, then click “Download Update”. If you do not have an active Service Contract, contact us for renewal options.
