Podio

[Citrix Podios's] customer support is very quick and they provide you an option to convert your
project into small tasks so that you can better assist your team and extract
maximum work out of them hence I will totally recommend its usage. I could not think that keeping track of tasks could be this much easier and smart. It is a fully customizable tool that manages my tasks efficiently and deal with them effectively.

ProjectLibre

You have to come in without bias and looking forward to embracing a new program. That sounds a bit biased myself, yes, but this program would have been perfect for the organization I consulted with. Absolutely perfect. But out of twelve individuals, only one had an open mind and wanted to explore the program. The remainder saw the program and said "Oh, it's like Excel, I'll just use that instead..." because they knew Excel. ProjectLibre is FUNCTION-centric, not pretty for the sake of being pretty. Once you get into it, you will fall in and love it. If you know marketing automation software, you will know how to use this program. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to manage their time visually, in a program that is built to be what they need and not just something that looks good on a second monitor when the boss walks in.

Pros

Podio

  • Very easy for people without coding or technical skills to set up and maintain information in "Apps".
  • Platform is very easy to learn and adopt--it's intuitive.
  • Project management potential is awesome--instead of having to fit your projects into a structure that is industry specific, you can build an app that tracks what you want, in the order you want it.
  • Has a "relationship" field that allows you to relate an individual item or record to a record in another app. It effectively gives some of the functionality of a relational database.
  • Very useful for information sharing when staff members are in different regions or places.

ProjectLibre

  • It opens Microsoft Project files, therefore making it somewhat unrestricted in use or sharing files from MS Project.
  • It has a simple and familiar user interface.

Cons

Podio

  • More filter options for calendars.
  • Customizable views for Relation fields.
  • Full featured Podio mobile App for iPad.
  • A customizable profile status – would love to work with Podio in silent mode (logged in while working, but "not available" for requests when in heavy work mode)
Jan Florian Maas | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProjectLibre

  • Translation of some words.
  • Interface is not fast and fluid.
  • Problems saving the file sometimes. The program closes.

Podio customer service is great. The cloud and mobile service is fast (almost instant, continuous syncing). With a solid user base, and backed by Citrix, this is a serious business solution. They're also constantly working on improving and making it more powerful. I anticipate it only getting better

Podio support was always responsive and very quick to provide answers and assistance during the history of using this product, their support team has always been top notch. There have been several cases where calling podio support a feature was not available and they provided either workaround solutions or added the features straight into their roadmap.

There are a lot of discussions online about it, and a customer addition based manual. While that can lead to some confusion, I am not the kind of person who likes talking on the phone. So it is easier to go online with ProjectLibre!

Alternatives Considered

Podio

Compared to Salesforce: Podio is not as robust as a tool for CRM tracking. It also doesn't have the in-email capabilities that SF offers. Compared to Basecamp: Podio is somewhat similar to Basecamp but doesn't offer the same functionality with checking items off and archiving projects.Compared to Zoho Projects: Podio is vastly superior to Zoho Project's lack of flexibility (requiring a development team to build) and accessibility by all members (Zoho Projects requires a very limited number of "owners" of projects which makes it difficult if multiple owners need to assign one or more people to a project).

Microsoft Project has a great interface and features. However, the cost of ProjectLibre overshadows anything that Microsoft can provide. The cost to benefits that ProjectLibre provides along with their similar features to Microsoft makes ProjectLibre a leader in the project management software category.

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

Podio

  • Podio is great for task assignment and tracking. The ability to enter and assign tasks from mobile and track their completion saves me several phone calls a day.
  • Podio outdoes email as my go to place to search for information. The ability to forward emails into the system, organize by projects and contacts, and search it all saves considerable time and confusion.
  • Podio has considerable potential to reduce overall admin time spent organizing information (filing, tracking, etc) The ability to keep a single record of a given piece of information without being tied to email vs file structure works very well.
Keller Baum | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProjectLibre

  • No investment made, besides time, but definitely worthwhile in using it.
