Podio

Better-suited:Small companies with a distributed workforce that need structure in their process (as opposed to relying on shared spreadsheets or post-it-notes for process)Great for any team that has had trouble implementing other, more rigid, project management tools (since they can customize this one)Less-suited:For technical reasons, it's not very good if you need or want to include clients in the conversations. One can work around this limitation, but also found out our clients didn't care to see the ghost inside the machine.

Podio is now part of VMWare. In today's IT environment keeping a service vibrant and available requires vision and financial backing. I think this team will continue to enhance Podio

Alternatives Considered

The direct Podio competitors we evaluated were Base CRM, Quickbase, and Insightly. Base CRM is a fantastic CRM product and I would love to use it. The problems is it stops at CRM. Base is really more for a sales environment than one that has a complex project lifecycle. Quickbase is a start towards whats needed to transition from a traditional platform to an integrated one. They fall short on integration (emails, events, data) being easily pushed into the system. Insightly came close to what we need. It is a great CRM system that leaves something to be desired for project management. It does a good job of integrating information but falls short as a serious project management tool in valuing ease too highly over customization.

As you business grows, so does Podio. There seems to be no limit to the workspace and apps you can create on the platform

Return on Investment

  • ROI
  • tracking

  • Podio has required a lot of staff time from one or two of our employees, to set up and get the others on board.
  • Once Podio is up and running, it saves a lot of time and helps us communicate better.
  • Podio has some features - i.e. webforms - that have helped us do event registration and applications better.
