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.

Zoho Connect

Zoho Connect is a successful tool that creates team collaboration in our organization as people connect, share ideas, and plan on the ways forward. More so, Zoho Connect we use Zoho Connect to make remote connections, through video conferencing, and file sharing. Time management is another help we obtain from Zoho Connect, as it has calendar planner, suitable for setting the exact dates for meetings. Lastly, there is real time engagement with people around our firm, and more so clients.

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.

  • Zoho Connect has data security techniques, ensuring our company remains incredibly outstanding.
  • Lastly, we use Zoho Connect for event management, and session scheduling.

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

Zoho Connect

  • Zoho Connect lacks document management, a strong pillar in any enterprise.
  • Besides, there is no self-service portal from Zoho Connect, and this would make the application more advanced.
  • Discussions boards are also limited from Zoho Connect, and they should be enhanced or employed.

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.

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).

Zoho Connect

Zoho Connect has real time discussion forums, which are essential in brainstorming and idea generation. Furthermore, there is the decision tree, which is enhanced by the knowledge based management feature. Zoho Connect has a social media tagging option, so advanced and efficient in connect with those on social sites. Finally, Zoho Connect has privacy option, and data security procedures, which are always active

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.

Zoho Connect

  • Constant discussions supports provocativeness and innovations in our company.
  • Furthermore, instant file sharing speeds the operations of a company, and boosts the team spirit among staff.
  • Lastly, the initial financial requirements for Zoho Connect installation is small.
