I wouldn't suggest Crowdbasefor smaller companies, even for bigger companies a more integrated solution would be desirable. It may suit companies that want their collaboration separate from project management and CRM, but at least for our organisation it seems to make more sense to have most of our work tools in one place

This is the great way to start your project, visualize your project before you start writing codes for it. Work in the collaborative environment assign task and module to the teams, this is the perfect tool for every project related activity.Even the subscription starts with only 12$ per month.

Cons

  • It is very limited

  • I think they should provide some low cost packages for educational organizations

Alternatives Considered

Crowdbase (discontinued)

Crowdbase's strength may lie in its ability to do just one main thing well, but for us this was a massive limitation. I know that it is not trying to be Podio and it is therefore unfair to compare the two but there are features that overlap. for us Podio was better suited.
