Crowdbase (discontinued)

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

Nifty

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

Cons

Crowdbase (discontinued)

  • It is very limited
  • Although it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.
  • It isn't customisable like podio.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nifty

  • It's not a pretty platform (it's extremely intuitive, but the color scheme and fonts are less than visually appealing)
  • Tasks can be broken down once into subtasks, but I'd like to see the ability to break them down infinitely
  • Due to the frequent improvements and feature upgrades, I have to re-authorize the Zoom integration from time to time - no biggie, unless realizing the need to re-authorize when needing to hop on a call

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.

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.

Return on Investment

Crowdbase (discontinued)

  • Encourages communication
  • Easy to use
  • Before crowdbase we never though of collaborating this way
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nifty

  • It's paid for itself many times over in being able to use just one platform instead of paying for multiple platforms to do what Nifty does in pieces
  • The time saved from knowing all project management is in one central location
  • Time saved from having templates and the ease of use
