N/A
Crowded.me is a banking service designed specifically for clubs, groups, and their members. Traditionally, banks have compartmentalized their customers into consumers and businesses and neglected the hundreds of billions in cash flow that exists between B2B and B2C. Crowded aims to be a one-stop-shop platform for these 'crowds' encompassing payments, banking, reporting, taxation, and organizational management.

Ally Financial, Inc
Ally perfectly meets our needs for OKR management. My team uses it to ensure that we are making progress on our quarterly objectives and regularly check in—at minimum, once a week but often more frequently. The only misuses at my company are due to user error, notably when people incorrectly use it for task management rather than measurable goals.

Crowded
Crowded is very well suited for fraternities, or any non-profit community groups really, that have a centralized fund and rely on members purchasing equipment and materials individually. Any company that requires reimbursements and has to manage dues from numerous members should take advantage of this free application, as it provides a really easy way to manage the finances of an organization

Pros
Ally Financial, Inc
  • Visualizing the hierarchy and relationship between objectives and key results. The nesting and double alignment functionality are especially helpful, as they can't easily be expressed on, say, a simple worksheet or Confluence page.
  • Reminding the team to make regular check-ins. What gets measured gets done. This prevents the common pitfall of setting goals and not revisiting them until the end of a project (when it is too late).
  • Integration with external sources for automated check-ins. Why do this manually when it can happen behind the scenes?

  • It would be great to have a direct integration to Sigma.
  • Sometimes the UI is a little buggy/weird (e.g. re-ordering and adding objectives is not the easiest).

Alternatives Considered
Ally Financial, Inc
Ally and Sigma are very different tools. However, they are both integral to my team's daily work and success. One of their common strengths is the responsiveness of their support team. I always feel that my questions are being answered in a clear and informed way. Another shared strength is the knowledge bases that these tools have built out, which is very helpful for onboarding and answering questions self-serve.

Crowded
We were using GreekBill before to manage our funds and dues, and it was very outdated and unhelpful. Crowded was much more simple, easy to use, and had way more functions.
