Daylite Software


 

Daylite from Marketcircle, Inc. enables users to manage many business aspects from a single application. It prioritizes projects and opportunities to provide visibility over short and long-term goals of the company, then organizes and connects these objectives to daily activities such as managing contacts, notes, emails, task lists and schedules.

Integration with Mail for MacOS allows emails to be saved as history as well as converted into actionable items like tasks and appointments directly from the email window. History is catalogued for each record and displayed as a timeline of interactions that also includes calls, appointments, tasks and notes.

Both projects and sales opportunities can be managed within Daylite. It tracks potential sales in addition to progress on projects by milestone and assigns tasks for each user involved.

Daylite is suitable for legal, consulting, real estate, financial, design, technology and sales businesses.

If you are a MacOS based business looking for a workflow management I would definitely recommend Daylite

Pros

For our consulting business I did not think I could find a platform that would allow us to automate so much of our business development and project management. It even interfaces into our accounting system and works brilliantly on desktop, phone and tablet.

Cons

The biggest issue for us is that while the business is MacOS many of the consultants come with their own hardware and some are either Windows or Android. But there are work around with that.

Get Product For The Apple Centric Environment

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Daylite manages customers, accounts opportunities with ease. Tightly coupled integration with Apple Mail and calendaring functions make it a seamless product that delivers results. It has depth and many time saving features as result of this tightly coupled nature of the Apple only ecosystem. It is this point where the challenge to Daylite exists, not the product but having the customer convert from a non-Apple platform to a Apple based computing infrastructure. The barriers of cost outside of Daylite are not insignificant, but the good news is that this cost barrier is becoming less over time and most users would be happy to move to an Apple based product.

Pros

Great Opportunity management. Ability to tag specific emails through the Mail Assistant to people, companies and opportunities is one of the greatest strengths
Easy to create sales processes
Find anything instantly with database wide searching.
Easy to integrate with supported 3rd party applications such as bulk mailers

Cons

Single platform support - Apple Only. (Including no Web Portal Interface)

Very Robust System for Small Business---But you Have to Put the Work In

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

Daylite has a lot of functionality and wonderful integration. (Our calendar and email integrates with Daylite). We use this software for our customer database. To get the most out of the product, you need to take the tutorials so you can learn how to "tag" customers and create mini databases. For example, if you have a buyer that has bought certain items from you company, you will want to tag that buyer with the name of the item so you can pull up reports. The more you use the tags and connections, the better your reports will be. We find these very useful, but if someone in the office forgets to tag a customer properly, the data is pretty much useless.

Cons

It is not "plug and play". You need to put the work in to understand the functionality.l If you have a "lazy" employee, you might not get the full use of the software

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Value for Money

For a novice, it was difficult to understand how CRM software works. Though the tutorial covers the basic of CRM, many of the steps are based on a previous version of the software, so it was confusing.
However, the basics are very logical and easy to follow. I still need to more fully understand the less commonly used features, but I feel comfortable enough with the software to use it on a regular basis for all my CRM needs.

Pros

Consistent interface across the multiple features.

Cons

Using some of the features are restrictive and don't work for me. For example, the choices within the category, type, state, etc. don't provide choices that make sense in the context in which I use them; if there is a way to change them and make them specific to my needs, it was not made clear from the documentation.

Using Daylite (and replacing the rest)

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

In the past I have tried a number of software solutions. I've used other CRM's along with TODO list apps. Daylite allows me to keep everything in one place and basically use just one app for managing relationships as well as email (on my desktop), projects, tasks, my calendar and more. No more jumping from one app to another - it's all here. Basically every bit of information about a client can be linked. The forms and reports are incredibly useful and it's the only CRM I have found that allows me to link and show important items in my Apple Calendar (without having to use Google Calendar.) Now scheduling is a breeze.

Pros

I love the integration. When using the desktop app I can link everything and see the relationships right away. I use it as a smart contact list, a project planner, a reminder system - and even very simple finance tracking. The learning curve has been fairly easy and I have to be honest, I appreciate Marketcircle's videos as well as the user guide when I get stuck.

Cons

The only 'wish list' item I have is for Daylite's mobile app to allow linking incoming emails with contacts and organizations. Other than that I can't think of anything else I want it to do.

Advice to Others

Daylite is a Mac only app - but if you're a Mac user this is the CRM to take a serious look at.

An very easy to use workflow / project / relationship management system for Mac OS

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We have been using an automated marketing system to generate leads through our online inbound marketing, but the conversion of leads into projects and the management of the delivery of the projects was ad hoc and disjointed. We decided to implement Daylite as most of the consultant base was mac OS users either laptop, iPad or iPhone. The system provides us with a single end to end solution from lead to invoicing and everything in between meaning it is something you find yourself using every day.

Pros

Very easy to use interface and comprehensive collections of data to manage leads out of Sharpspring and then track and manage those leads through conversion, project delivery and invoicing. It provides us with an end to end solution to manage our resources, costs and customers.

Cons

Not all of the team has Mac OS, except on their phones. This becomes a limitation.

Daylite 6

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

Overall, Daylite 6 seems to be just the ticket for our size company and my particular needs. They have a ton of training videos, although I think they are a little to generic. As a first time CRM user, I had a hard time getting my head wrapped around the "what's the first step to take in getting started" part, but since I have been working it for about 8 weeks now it is starting to make more sense. They should do a video entitled, "Here's how to begin using Daylite."

Pros

I like the way it integrates with Mac Mail, Calendar, and Contacts and ties them all together, and especially like the Projects segment, although it too, needs a better tutorial.

Cons

Wish the difference between Tasks and Wordlist items was a little better defined, and the section on Opportunities. Also a way to have better view of "what I've got in the works" would be helpful.... to see it in almost more a calendar, or list view would be good, although maybe that I just haven't gotten there yet. Bottom line is I'm still going month-to-month until I see if this is the one.

Advice to Others

Try it out on the trial and then go month-to-month, it takes a couple months of working with it, getting it all down to really evaluate it's effectiveness for your sales.

The software, especially iOS software but Mac included, crashes all too often. The night side is that I have not lost any data due to a crash. Their tech support seems to try to be helpful, but problems seem to take a really long time to get resolved.

Daylite is extremely fast and responsive, transitioning from a web based CRM to a native CRM on OSX has been a great experience for us.

Likes Least

The only problem I've had with Daylite in the past is licenses would stop working and that would create problems with other users trying to connect to the database. The problem no longer exists with Daylite 6.

The biggest problem I see with daylite is with plugins, you left with having to deal with companies like IOSExpert who make plugins for daylite. This company is based in Germany and rarely responds to support inquiries even being a paid subscriber of the product and a paid support user. Daylite needs to have a list of supported plugins that either they design or sign off with as a complete compatible plugin but as is we're left with dealing with awful support and mediocre plugins from developers like iOSXpert.

Recommendations

Download the 30 day trial. I think you'll be impressed with Daylite.

Daylite makes everything so much easier to find. It organizes everything together for each customer. There’s a lifecycle for an order. Daylite keeps the whole lifecycle in one place where I can find it, whether I am in the office or in my car. It seamlessly syncs with my mobile devices and computers which is unbelievably helpful.
Daylite Mail Assistant is the best function, because I do almost everything by e-mail or phone, and now I can attach the correspondence to the project I’m working on. I also like that I can add so many things on the fly. I add keywords with the PO number and link it to my customer’s name and vendor name for whatever item I’m ordering. I can put the date in for forecasting so I know when I need to order again. Before Daylite, I had to do that manually or write a report in Excel and pick things off a report, which wasn’t fun!

Likes Least

I wish the updates for newer versions were less expensive.

Recommendations

Use the trial version. If needed, ask for an extension. Ensure the software is compatible with your current configurations/computers/operating software.

Daylite is the most sophisticated CRM solution available if you work in an Apple environment. I have been using Daylite for over 5 years and Marketcircle has been committed to continuously develop the platform and connect all mobile devices, making it accessible from everywhere.

Likes Least

The database server needs more detailed instructions about users and syntonization with Daylite instances on other Mac machines. This has improved over time, but still needs work to make it Apple easy.

Recommendations

Evaluate your business process first and document what you are trying to accomplish with a CRM package. Daylite offers different packages for different business scenarios. So, you can concentrate on customizing the setup for your needs instead of worrying about the technical infrastructure.

It takes a lot of time and discipline to enter all the important information into the program and many can't be just imported. You also can't save attachments with emails. Even though it is made for the Mac, it isn't as intuitive to use as Mac software usually is!

When your busy you need software (technology) to keep you on track and not do things twice. I allocate each new client to a project and use multiple tasks and activity sets to remind me whats next.

I love using it because it puts the items of most importance where they can be easily monitored and acted on. I've tried over the years to manage projects and opportunities using other organizational software, but none provide the links to allow the appropriate access to information that is needed for each task.

Pros

Ease of use, easy integration with Apple's Mail application. It's easy to file away all relevant e-mails and link them to project, contact, opportunity, etc.

Cons

I wish there were an easy way to keep track of billable and/or business development hours. It can be done now, but it requires a calendar entry for each event. Then, filtering on keyword (e.g. "hours") allows quick overview. Rather, I would like to see a running balance of hours spent on each opportunity and project.

Without this software it would be a great deal harder to control each of the projects I work on. Every project has a different client base and different suppliers, all of whom can be input into the system. It's the control over information that gives peace of mind.

Pros

Daylite makes it very easy to track every project on my desk. I am a one woman company, working on a number of projects at any one given time and it could so easily be chaos without Daylite. Being able to view emails and documents within projects, as well as the ability to add notes is essential. Since I moved to a Cloud account it has been even better. Very reliable and easy to keep up to date while on the move. There is a lot that is customisable of which I only use a small amount, however that may change as I make use of the tutorials available. The calendar syncs across with ease and the 'Home' page is an essential tool, giving a clear view of the days appointments and tasks. Much of the software is customisable.

Cons

I am always seeking ways to work 'smarter' and thus save time. I would love it if there was a little more functionality so that I could input information on the Project page that would automatically populate a custom sheet in, say, reports. That would save me a huge amount of time. Being able to see the status of all projects and project history on one page would certainly be helpful to me.

Makes great use of the Apple OS & iOS systems. If you're on those platforms, why not use a program designed specifically to leverage them?!?

Makes my life and work easy to organise and keep up-to-date.

Pros

It syncs beautifully across all devices. Enables me to have all of the information and interaction with my clients and projects all in one place. The interface with Apple Mail delivers the emails into my projects and that combined with files, notes, appointments, and tasks all being attached to my clients means I am always clear on what is happening with my projects.

Cons

Hard to find anything I like least as Daylite is my go-to software. Its a small thing but it would be nice if the calendar view could be changed so that I could see more of the day on the screen at the same time i.e. it is currently in half-hour increments which can't be changed and I often work in evenings and have to remember to scroll down to see appointments in the evening. Would be good if it was customizable to change the viewing to hour increments.

I use this for case management; it easily allows me to easily track all events for a given project.

Pros

I enjoy the way the software integrates with Mac Mail, which allows me to associate emails with particular projects. I also like how easy it is to look up contacts that are associated with a project. It's nice to have all of the contact information available at a glance.

Cons

I wish the email functions integrated better with their sister software Billings Pro. Email is the primary method of communicating today, and billing can be based in large part on this type of communication.

It brings everything I use (Calendar, Contacts, and Email) and simply rolls it into one. It's a tremendous value that leverages my time. I LOVE THIS COMPANY! I wish AT&T would take lessons from Daylite -- LOL!

It's become an invaluable part of the team.

Pros

Daylite integrates seamlessly across the Apple devices of all our team members. It's easy to use, intuitive, easy to personalise and in essence, manages our customer relations for us. The new team function is brilliant, you can see at a glance other team members schedules and workflows, and makes communicating with them and delegating tasks simple. If you're Apple equipped, I'd give Daylite a try, it will revolutionise your business.

It's changed how I schedule, which is pretty intense for a studio.

Pros

Ability to master schedule across all resources and personnel, create tasks and task lists, and see what everyone is working on all at once. The Customer Service is always top notch, and responds with insight and options. The ability to link entire teams to events.

Cons

The Price per person per month, it's one of the most expensive monthly subscriptions we have and thats counting higher end professional software like Avid and Protools. So we have to be selective about who can have access. There should be 2 tiers. Once for Mobile read only users, and one for full blown Computer access.

Pros

We find the program to be easy to use. When we encountered backup issues briefly, their tech support was quick to respond and helpful.

Cons

A bit pricey for an office with multiple subscribers. Would be nice to have a reduced price for local networks.

I use this every day, 7 days a week (since personal ticklers, etc commonly accessed also)

Pros

Easy to use, very intuitive re ticklers, tasks, reports, etc. Since I'd been using an iPhone and iPad for years I thought I'd take a chance and try converting to a MAC, Daylite, etc and I'm glad I did!

Cons

Tough to read the gray details in tasks, something market Circle is addressing I'm told. Activating the arrows in Tasks to advance or rewind the month is a little challenging also.

Unified my goals and task management to move my business forward.

Pros

The integration to OS /iOS is nearly flawless and well maintained with virtually no downtime. Updates always stay ahead of the curve unlike other CRM solutions. Functionally you could not ask for more: Contact, Calendar, Task, Objectives along with contact history all in one place.

Cons

Index within contacts on iOS (IPhone especially) would be a big plus. Once you have a lot of contacts it's difficult to scroll.

Pros

Ease of use, integration with mail, very intuitive and comprehensive. Also, customer service is exceptional. They get back to you quickly and are always responsive.

Cons

The only thing that I can think of (and it isn't that important) is that I have multiple clients with the same company name and it is difficult to sometimes determine which company a person actually goes with
