Microsoft Required Server Patching:
Barefoot will be performing required Microsoft Patching on our servers early Wednesday May 18th.
The patching will start at 12:30 am EDT with rolling starts and all updates planned to be
completed by 4:00 am EST. During this time the Barefoot system may be unavailable.
It has been a busy month getting back into the Partner swing of things here at Barefoot. We have 3 of our new partners into the Beta stage this month. Once these Beta stages are complete, we then add the portals to all Barefoot Agent systems. If you have questions about whether a partner is “live”- your portal page is the first page to look at. You can send me an email at Partnerrelations@barefoot.com if you have any questions. Until we successfully test the integrations, we do not add the portals tto he Barefoot Agent System.

1. Xplorie has been working with one of our larger clients and they provide activity programs for your guests.
