Apptivo

(UPDATE: Please note that my review was for the Version 5 of their apps. They have recently updated 2 of their main apps to V6 which show a lot of improvements. The sad thing however is that many of their 40+ apps never even made to V5 let alone V6. V5 to V6 has taken over a year and only the core apps are getting attention.)

As it stands Apptivo is only useful for one person or sole trader type entities. If your business wants to use all the apps and works internationally then Apptivo will create headaches and frustration rather than increasing productivity. They may solve many of the 100+ items we provided them with free of charge in an upcoming release, but we left with a bad taste in our mouth. Countless hours lost in our business while we acted as bug finders for Apptivo while paying for the product.

  • Customer service is amazing - I always receive a detailed reply so quickly.
  • They listen to their users! They are always adding new features based on what their customers ask for!
  • The automation and integrations are really what make our boards pop.
  • It's visually pleasing! We love the colors and the user-friendly functions.

Cons

Apptivo

  • Homescreen claims to be the center of the application however the sub sections are mostly flawed or do not function as one would expect.
  • The built in email client kinda works but depending on which section of the app you are in the default font will be different from your signature. Also you cannot add a cell phone to staff signatures. I asked about this for months. It was never fixed. When will CRM companies learn that email is STILL the center of many business. It is unacceptable to have different fonts in the same mail and signatures that change from client to client.
  • They frequently messed up our contact data.
  • Multi currency exists on invoices but not on other apps.
  • Fragmentation with their apps....some apps are still on version 3 some on 4 and some on version 5. This means you are forced to deal with 2 or more different user interfaces within the same app.
  • No consistency between the apps.
  • Often there is little or no integration between the apps inside Apptivo.

  • Notifications can be a pain, you have to go into personal settings to shut them off. Also, there is an inbox and notifications bar, so that is a bit confusing to handle. I found myself dealing with emails and notifications but once I had shut them down everything was good again.
  • Another thing that is a bit of a pain point, is there is no way to share a pulse to another board. Other apps do have a way of doing this but that is not the case here. You have to create the same pulse and provide individual updates to it which feels like a lot of work for teams who work on multiple projects at a time. If there was a way to share a pulse between boards, it would be a huge time saver.
  • My biggest gripe tends to be mobile apps. I like Monday's app but I feel it is not the best implementation especially for on the go collaboration. If the app had a better portrait view and didn't feel like an excel sheet that you need to zoom out of to look it, it would be a winner. The thing though is I do not know how that can change.

I would be in serious trouble if the company switched to something else or returned to less sophisticated software. The intricate management system I built is what guides me through my days. When I feel like I lost track of my priorities, I always know where I should look to get back in the saddle.

Usability

Apptivo

Apptivo 2.7
Based on 1 answer
Our uses kept running into bugs that stopped them from doing simple things like creating a contact or selecting an item from a custom drop list which is required to save the contact or item. This of course is after time was spent filling out all the previous data which gets lost when you cannot complete the form. This is just one example of many.

If you have a basic understanding of the terms and exist in a project management field it will be very intuitive and easy for you to pick it up and begin setting up workflows and tasks. Someone who doesn't have familiarity with how to plan a project may be confused on how it is intended to be setup.

My knowledge of the system got to a point where I am not helped out by being pointed to relevant FAQ links -- for a time that was all I got, but the new webinars solve this knowledge gap issue for me. I prefer to watch the recordings, but that is just as good, and to watch out for updates to enhance my boards.

If you are starting a business and want a free app or nearly free app that can grow with you....then apptivo could be for you. However if you grow faster than them then you will be quickly seeking alternatives

Implementing monday.com is very easy if you already use a spreadsheet at least, to track your progress in different projects in any way.

Alternatives Considered

Apptivo

Sellsy is the app that comes closest in terms of feature set. It is a lot more expensive but even with its flaws and terrible Google integration is still is a measurably better product in terms of taking care of your business. Unfortunately for Apptivo it tries to do everything with its 40+ apps but not one of those apps succeed in being great when compared to the competition. The competition in all cases are much more expensive than Apptivo but it is a case of you get what you pay for.

Solve360 is probably the best Google integrated crm product on the market today however it is not a business management platform. Work[etc] is another great platform with excellent Google integration but doesn't do stock management or multi-currency. Also way over-priced!

I like that monday.com has automations so that I can set myself a reminder if tasks are not completed by the due date. Monday.com also makes it easy to replicate or copy boards, as well as the customization opportunities. Monday.com makes it easy to break down a project into small steps that can be marked as complete or as any other status. What I like about monday.com that's different from Asana is that you can customize the status to mark something as more than just "done."

Return on Investment

Apptivo

  • It cost us money.
  • We lost a few hundred man hours on this. We stuck with them for a while based upon the promises received and the excellent speed at which support would reply to concerns. However fixes to the big issues still have not arrived a year later.

  • We have saved days worth of time internally and in working with external agencies through better task management and ease of collaboration.
