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

Ruum by SAP

Ruum [by SAP] is well-suited for the task creation and assignment with the responsible persons for the follow-ups and collaboration, which can be used for both internal or external projects. Ruum [by SAP] can also be used for internal tasks, milestones, project and workflow management and team management functionalities respectively. Ruum [by SAP] may not be well suited for those who want to use the CRM tools for the related marketing activities management in [a] particular situation.

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.

Ruum by SAP

Ruum [by SAP] is an easy-to-use project and workflow management tool for the organization's internal use on the project tracking and managing [of] client-related projects, which also benefits team assignment and collaboration. [It also] shares the project milestones with the external clients for the particular project status records, [as such], I would like to [recommend] Ruum by SAP as an internal workflow management solution for better productivity and work efficiency.
