Podio

Some people seemed to be confused by too many options. Customizing your work in a digital workspace needs means rethinking your possibilities by knowing your toolset well. In the beginning, I was a little bit frustrated, because I didn't see all these options and there was a lack of best practise. Studying the large Podio App Store solutions helped me to understand. If you do not have the time it's the best moment for getting in contact with one of the Podio partners.

Pros

Podio

  • Podio's apps are the most customizable tools I have seen anywhere, and I have tested and evaluated a large number of work management solutions. The abstract nature of their apps makes them ideal for very specific, niche cases as well as common, general purpose uses. The solution is elegant: an app is simply a collection of app items, with characteristics and perhaps links to other apps & their app items, all of which can be defined by your needs. Anyone who enjoys making "lists" of "things" should love this.
  • Custom reporting is a dream in Podio. I can take any characteristics or fields in any of my app items, compare or filter them with other apps' items, run calculations on them and figure totals by month, team member or almost anything else you can imagine. The possibilities really seem limited only by your imagination.
  • Podio has a lot of features, but another strength to factor in is third-party support. There are a lot of outside companies that offer additional features like detailed workflows, synchronizations between other cloud-based apps, and possibly even graphs in the near future.

Cons

Podio

  • Not sure if this has been implemented but having drop-down menus that change depending on your previous selection - AND/OR functionality would be great.
  • Some ability to reskin Podio.
  • Archiving of old projects / content of apps without manually moving contents.

Easy integrations with existing social networks to both create an account and connect with other users on the platform. The knowledge base and blog were also very useful and helpful.

Alternatives Considered

Podio

We were trying to find a cost-effective solution (we're a small company) that would allow us to store all our client contacts and notes and help save our team time. Podio's globiflow feature does this really well. Other options we looked at didn't have these features or gave us way too much stuff that we didn't need.
