My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Some people seemed to be confused by too many options. Customizing your work in a digital workspace needs means rethinking your possibilities by knowing your toolset well. In the beginning, I was a little bit frustrated, because I didn't see all these options and there was a lack of best practise. Studying the large Podio App Store solutions helped me to understand. If you do not have the time it's the best moment for getting in contact with one of the Podio partners.

It has become an indispensable tool. After we stopped relying on internal e-mails, spreadsheets, post-it notes and lots of hope and stress we couldn't believe we had ever worked that way.

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