Amazing platform for managing anything

PROS

Podio is a fully featured platform that allows you to manage any process. We use it as our ERP and we manage all our company processes there. We are a corporate training organization and we sell workshops. In podio we create and keep track from the beginning of the process, the delivery of the courses and the follow up. We have developed with time a quite complex and at the same time simple custom platform for our needs.

CONS

Reporting is quite limited and not very customizable. Also views could be more sophisticated and customizable.

Reason for choosing Podio

Podio is much more than a project management platform or CRM. It lets you build your own system as you want... is like a Lego

a good collaboration tool for begginners of companies that can spend a lot of time in it

it is quite good, the best for us was to share information about leads

PROS

we can have in one place all the leads we have and all the workers can upload information about that lead, so we check there all we have from them.

CONS

the support it is not very good, the price it is quite high and at the end we were moving to MNprogram but we still could not do the change

Reason for choosing Podio

because podio can edit the form and have the connection with sage for accounting.

Reasons for switching to Podio

because MNprogram still do not have the form in english with the fields we need in our leads.

Used to be good now is outdated and poor customer service

I went from love to dissappointment. For many years it served us to organize the workflows of the company but gradually it was left behind and today it is an outdated and expensive platform. In addition, the customer service is really disappointing.

PROS

It's good for working with databases and relations among them. We used to have our complete ERP built in Podio.

CONS

- Podio used to be a good alternative when workspaces were customizable and external users could interact with the platform easily. However, this changed unilaterally and without notice, rendering most applications useless. - Compared to platforms like Notion, Podio's system and infrastructure are perceived as outdated and difficult to configure. - The customer service is poor, with delayed responses and a lack of empathy towards the customers. - It is more expensive than more powerful and customizable platforms.

Reason for choosing Podio

A few years ago it was a state-of-the-art alternative for project and workflow management.

Customization is the key

You can build a whole information system to support all your organization's areas in the same platform. Obviously, in a service with so many possibilities, everything can be as good as an average solution. If you need a specialized CRM, there's a more expensive alternative and the same is true for email marketing, database manager, webform embeds, etc. The upside of Podio is having it all in the same place, which makes it really convenient.

PROS

Podio is like a canvas that comes blank and can be as deep as your imagination goes. It's extremely customizable and that makes it more than viable to any organization. It's a platform that can go in any direction you need, you just have to learn javascript to get it's full potential.

CONS

Platform outages are more common than i'd like. Every month there are at least 2 or 3 incidents that make reliability the goal Citrix should be after.

Reason for choosing Podio

Price. The licensing model used by Podio works better for us.
