Podio

I think Podio is flexible enough to be useful to almost any non profit or business. We built a suite of apps for event planning that completely streamlined our planning and logistics.

Pros

  • If anything has to be tweaked or changed – in Podio you can do that in minutes!
  • If you need high security and want the maximum possible transparency of what is shared to whom or who is allowed to see your data – Podio's concept of work spaces is great!
  • Easy communication – get in contact with any team member or Podio user: chat, audio or video conferencing is just one click away!
  • Work the way you want – in Podio it's easy to structure your data in Apps and to configure workflows that meet your personal needs.

Cons

  • 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)

I have a sales rep who is putting me in touch with a new support team member and we're supposed to have a meeting next week. It does not look particularly likely that we will end up choosing Podio based on my initial customer service experience, but I am not closing the door entirely. It's going to be an uphill battle for sure, but it is not entirely out of the question, particularly if they have improved task management on the horizon and can demonstrate a greatly improved attitude.

Alternatives Considered

The direct Podio competitors we evaluated were Base CRM, Quickbase, and Insightly. Base CRM is a fantastic CRM product and I would love to use it. The problems is it stops at CRM. Base is really more for a sales environment than one that has a complex project lifecycle. Quickbase is a start towards whats needed to transition from a traditional platform to an integrated one. They fall short on integration (emails, events, data) being easily pushed into the system. Insightly came close to what we need. It is a great CRM system that leaves something to be desired for project management. It does a good job of integrating information but falls short as a serious project management tool in valuing ease too highly over customization.

As you business grows, so does Podio. There seems to be no limit to the workspace and apps you can create on the platform

Return on Investment

  • Better management of our sales pipeline within the same app that we use to manage projects. No more switching between Highrise and Basecamp.
  • Both designers and developers are comfortable working in Podio, which wasn't the case with Basecamp.
