Productive is integral to our success

Exceptional.

PROS

The features are designed for an agency so we use most of them, all day, every day. What we really like is: 1. The user interface is superb - intuitive and fast to use. The best we have seen. 2. Help files and customer services is excellent. There hasn't been a question without a really satisfactory answer. There isn't another system we use that is anywhere near as easy to use as Productive is. Remote working puts more pressure on the system and it has supported the team now spread out over thousands of miles.

CONS

Not much - would like slightly more customisable templates to allow us to add more text and graphics to them.

Reasons for switching to Productive

It seemed like it was built for small agencies, which we are.

The last project management and team collaboration software you will ever need

Productive has been a huge game changer for us. Our team has taken on Productive and have been using it religiously for everything, something that was easily forgotten or avoided when we were using other software that wasn't as fast, intuitive and easy to use. From an admin point of view, it has made our work easier and quicker - giving us information and overviews for things that would have otherwise required custom integrations or hours in spreadsheets.

PROS

We haven't had a single issue with Productive and have yet to hit a limitation or thing to improve. It has been such a breath of fresh air to come across an out-of-the-box solution that fits our team and way of working. It's clear that Productive listens to user feedback and quickly implements features and fixes. Their support is also outstanding - going above and beyond to provide excellent customer service.

CONS

Having tried 6 other project management and team collaboration software, I am pleased to say that Prodocutive has surpassed my expectations and there isn't anything that we don't like.

Reason for choosing Productive

Teamwork was much more limited and basic. The UI alone was what helped us choose Productive as everyone was able to use it without training or worrying about "where is this or that". You get what you see with Productive.

Reasons for switching to Productive

The cluttered user interface, lots of small bugs like issues with bulk actions, inconsistent and unreliable emails, and much more. It really put us off from using the software.

A great tool for multiple purposes

I really like Productive and would be happy if we continue using it.

PROS

I like how Productive has a lot of features and is still pretty simple to use. The logic behind everything works great almost always, and for me it became a tool that I use daily without much thought. I see great value in that. I also appreciate the documentation and the whole team behind.

CONS

Tasks are maybe still a bit sloppy, but maybe it's just because of the way we use it in the company. I'm not really sure.

Very all-round and effective projectmanagement app

I'm very happy with Productive and all its features, also the contact with the support is always very engaging!

PROS

Productive shines in its range of features that just click with our wishes in managing projects. It keeps track of alle important aspects of tasks, budgeting, time, invoicing and reports we need to do our best job for our customers.

CONS

Productive could become better when it has a translation in Dutch, for our customers who are not as tech savvy as we are. The way projects can be invoiced could get some improvements, also bulk editing budgets.

Reasons for switching to Productive

Flow did not meet our needs in terms of full project management with the big amounts of clients we have as a digital agency.
