I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
  • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
  • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
  • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
  • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
  • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
  • Assigning different components of projects to different people
  • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

Nifty
  • Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered.
  • Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality
  • Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized

Support Rating
Calamari
Working with my rep is so easy and has been the selling point on this platform. I like that I don't have to think about it much, love the Slack integrations for my team and how easy it was to transition from our old process into Calamari. It's simple, clear, and for a small team, it has everything I need. The customer support team has always responded promptly when I need anything, and we were even able to extend our trial period in the beginning and converted to a paying customer shortly after.

Our HR department used Excel and paper request forms for our vacation management, and tracking working hours didn't exist. We were only obliged to sign a list when we were entering the office. Calamari is a huge improvement in every aspect of time tracking and vacation management for your company. We're loving it!

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of Slack's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried) Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from Trello and Asana, saving tons of time in migration.
