    Exceptional.

    Pros

    There are several things to like. The ability to do what you want rather than change your organisation to fit is a wonderful option. The ability to automate all steps is extremely solid. The online support is exceptional.

    Cons

    Calendar syncing doesn't support recurring appointments. But, you can turn the calendar off, so it doesn't matter much at all.

    Pros

    All the features come at a specific fixed price. This application can be especially favorable to startups. Contact information, emails etc are arranged in a very neat order and can be easily used without any trouble. The support team at Apptivo is very helpful. They try to solve every issue put forward as quickly as possible. The application also shows efficiency in tracking clients and also deals with payments effectively. Since it is cloud-based, it can be accessed from anywhere.

    Cons

    The customization options are minimal. Also, there is trouble caused by bugs, due to which the software slows down in the long run. Many times, there is a need to add information on the existing data more than once, as it failed to get saved initially.

    I had a little problem importing some contacts, and made some mistakes that made the problem worse. So I messaged Tech Support and Rep responded immediately and unraveled the mess I created, but didn't stop there. He went on to import and map my contacts like they were supposed to be. I'm so happy :-)

    Pros

    I am just starting to dive into the product, today is my first day. I haven't had a chance to do anything yet, but will update when I do.

    Cons

    None so far, my only issue was user error, can't blame Apptivo for that, but they did spend the time to help me fix it.

    It is easy to use and get data about the type of clients we have

    Cons

    I wish it was easier to link so we could have sales, manually updating that is a pain, also wish that it had more options on types of customers we can put them under

    Pros

    Rich feature set and flexibility. Would be helpful if I could create my own tables and forms as I can in Dynamics 365 or Zoho but Apptivo has a much stronger sync to Xero so that helped make it the choice for my comfortable

    Also, outstanding support. Chat is there at all times and quickly and helpfully determine just what I need to do.

    Cons

    poor integration with Outlook Desktop

    Would like to create my and tables and forms to extend Apptivo to specific needs of my business but I can manage with the features already in Apptivo.

    This CRM really streamlined how we collected and reported data for expense reports.

    Pros

    Capturing information is very straight forward, and laid out in an intuitive format. Learning curve is very easy! Our team is adopting this tool.

    Cons

    At the beginning, it seemed very buggy, but they've made great improvements. Honestly, the toughest thing was getting people to change their ways, but customer support was integral to this process.

    Apptivo is All-Inclusive, Modern ERP Cloud App Done Right (Just Add Speed and GUI Refresh)

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money

    I was using Teamwork (formerly Teamwork PM) for project management, a local install of vTiger CRM for contacts and opportunity management, and myriad other cloud-based apps to pull together administrative activities. I wanted an all-inclusive software with strong project management features that also allowed me to handle detailed invoicing and allowed customers to click a link to pay. Lastly, the CRM component had to be at least as good as vTiger (or Zoho CRM which I'd also given a trial run). Apptivo satisfied these needs. Pleased with the CRM, opportunity management, project management, field service management, and billing apps (especially since they've added Stripe as a payment gateway).

    Pros

    They do not nickle-and-dime you to death! One price includes everything. Their tiers are about number of users rather than adding/subtracting features. A more sensible model than some of the others.

    I like how detail views are available from most places -- call logs, projects, tasks, and notes can be associated with a contact or company or opportunity.

    The integration with email is excellent, right down to making it easy to connect your email boxes. One challenge I had that Apptivo solved for me was how to keep emails related to a particular project or opportunity all together in one place. Apptivo does a good job of this by assigning codes (or project numbers), and allowing you to select whether or not the email you are writing is related.

    If you are writing emails using some other application (your desktop client or cloud-based app), you can use the same code in the subject line and Apptivo will pull that email into the app, and associate it with the relevant modules (project, client, case, etc.)

    Cons

    Apptivo is reliable, doesn't seem to ever lose information, etc. but it is often as slow as molasses in an ice storm. Waiting is a no-no; constant waiting is a annoyance that has made me close the app more than once and come back another time.

    Apptivo communicates improvements and changes on a regular basis, however, it takes Apptivo a long, loooooong time to integrate changes that have been requested by clients, and improvements overall.

    The incremental changes they report on are good but they are really things that should have been implemented 4-5 years ago. An example of this is Stripe (payment gateway) integration. I requested it over and over about 3 years ago but it was just implemented last year.

    They could do better with customization (esp. dashboards), reporting, data import, data export and speed.

    Low scores on API/integrations -- they have an API but not many other services have developed integrations for it. Neither have they developed many integrations (except for Google products). Even their WordPress module is outdated, clunky. Also, connection to phone services (to take better advantage of the ability to log calls).

    The interface still has areas that are clunky and unattractive (although, in defense of Apptivo, I must say the interface has improved in aesthetics, colors and icons in the 4 years I've been using it).

    You have a clear vision of all the processes in a company ready to be analyzed

    Pros

    The application offers complete view of the client and project from the start to the delivery and collection stages. Also alerts and personalizes reports. I really like the option to install a version of the application for mobile devices

    Cons

    At the beginning of the implementation phase, effectiveness may decrease if there is resistance to sharing information among commercial units or departments, this depends on the skill and ability of the work force, it also implies education and training, even though this tool is very easy to use and very intiutive for the team work so it can be less this training time

    Pros

    I can adapt it to my needs.

    I feel that when I make a suggestion for improvement it will genuinely be listened to.

    Cons

    There are a lot of bugs - this is why I have marked the overall quality down. We are always creating something and then it crashes, or it wont save and we have to start again. Or emails never arrive which causes big problems. Whenever there are updates, something unintentional seems to get affected. Perhaps more testing before going live. It feels a bit unprofessional sometimes.

    We can't test our own changes, so when I am updating things and people are using it, it can be disruptive. I really need to make changes and test before going live.

    The support is not always perfect. Some times its great, but sometimes I am not understood. The right intentions are always there though.

    All-in-one business software, good support and value for the money.

    Pros

    An extremely broad range of applications. Apptivo beats most competitors in this respect; it really is an 'all-in-one' ERP in fact - not just a CRM. At the same time Apptivo is excellent value for the money. The 'in-app' live chat support is especially helpful, as you can deal with issues as they occur. The pricing is per user, broadening the base of potential organizations who will find Apptivo appealing from the outset, and scaling as the organization grows larger.

    Cons

    Being a 'jack of all trades', Apptivo cannot be expected to excel in every area. Some features - such as the two Wordpress plugins - seem neglected and are seldom updated or promoted. Given the popularity of WP it seems to be a missed opportunity to expand into the help desk market. Another example would be the customer portal, it seems a bit awkward. The customer must sign-up through Xinnect and then Apptivo as well to access their portal, even though Apptivo might not be relevant to them. It is also difficult to control exactly what clients will see, and they are shown a lot of irrelevant fields, even though there is a rudimentary role assignment mechanism. Combining this with cases (tickets) and answers (knowledge-base) should in theory provide an alternative to a help desk, but it is a long way round.
