Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

PatternSmith reviews

Ease of use. Flexible.

- Scott H. Programming Director

We're running and Autometrix table, and Patternsmith is the best tool that integrates seamlessly. When it works, it's very efficient. Once you get accustomed to the workarounds and establish a workflow, custom work can be drawn up very quickly. Customer service is outstanding.

- Karl M. Production Manager

Good product, easier to use in new version, but no language choice

- Jonathan P. Machine programmer

Host Tools reviews

My overall experience has been fantastic and I really appreciate how much time/effort it has saved me!

- Kevin L. Owner

After trying several different programs to help automate our small boutique hotel operations, we knew after a short time with Host Tools that this was the program for us. It was clearly created by a fellow property owner and addresses our biggest concerns without unnecessary fluff. The price is fair, and we feel fortunate to have found it.

- Amanda S. Owner

Not very mobile friendly. I run about 95% off my phone.

Pros & cons


Excellent for making cutting markers
Also great for scoring plastic stiffeners
Helps automate what would be a tedious manual process
Techs like how easy it is to use and set up was also easy
It has been an effective design tool along with providing efficient use of materials."

When we first got the Software we had a long lost Patternsmith 2005 book that came with it
We do most of our panel manipulation usinging Auto-Cad and MPanel so some of Patternsmith's way of selecting and right clicking is a bit awkward for us
My previous work place had one of the competitions and watching them struggle with learning program was horrifying
They had someone out for two weeks or more and we only had someone out 1day
Low level functionality
It is good for cutting premade dxf files but bad at making changes to those files."

Host Tools

Great value, best automated messaging product out there
The product was simple to use and worked perfectly
I always recommend it to other hosts
My overall experience has been fantastic and I really appreciate how much time/effort it has saved me
Created the messages with ease and they automatically send so I don't have to think about it
Great templates, easy to change when you need."

No drawn out calls here
If I had 1-10 rentals of my own this would be the product I'd start with
I misunderstood syncing the calendar and unblocked some dates but was able to rectify
Sometimes there is a little bit of a lag between the Host Tools calendar synching with the Airbnb/VRBO feeds
Mostly difficulty in getting certain things to work - automated emails sent by Host Tools getting blocked as spam by ISPs is an ongoing unresovled problem."
