Accelo

Pretty good as a basic CRM, decent as a support desk. Tries to do a lot, but doesn't excel at any one thing. Reasonably priced, though, and can be a component in a larger setup.

Todoist

I am using only the free version right now, and only to organize my own projects, but Todoist seems like it might be useful for teams of any size. I'm sure that Todoist is a lot more powerful than what I am using it for. It seems like it might be especially suited for someone managing a team.

Pros

  • Retainer Management - I am not sure we could run retainers effectively without it.
  • Hour Logging and Tracking.
  • Customer Email Tracking.

Cons

  • Cumbersome processes - feels like tasks take longer than they should.
  • We gave up on the Projects module, it was rather unintuitive. Switched to JIRA, which integrates with the Support module of Accelo.
  • Each email address requires a new contact. If one person uses multiple email addresses to contact you, that info will have to be spread across multiple contacts.

  • Adding more collaborative function would be very helpful. I would love to be able to add two people to one task.
  • I would love to be able to have more than 200 projects. I work in a variety of fields and have projects in each one. The cap has been limiting at times.
  • A chat feature would be really helpful in collaboration. Comments are helpful, but a team chat would be great!

Alternatives Considered

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

I think Todoist is comparable and better than Wunderlist from a workflow standpoint. I think it suits smaller businesses and teams better than Asana and Teamwork. As a company grows, the features within Asana and Teamwork might better fit, but I think that for a small business or for personal task management, there is no better product than Todoist.

Return on Investment

  • Allows our growing team to have more client information and context accessible during client interactions.
Ryan Freeman profile photo
  • Due to the low cost of Todoist per user and ability to add team members easily, the ROI has been huge!
  • Todoist has been a lifesaver in making sure that our team stays on task. We need high-functioning software to complement our high-functioning team.
  • This product has allowed us to take on more clients and work with a variety of team members in different capacities. This product also allows us to dream about ideas for the future without interrupting our workflow.
