We are using Flowlu across all departments, this is the reason we have purchased Flowlu. To integrate working across departments. It helps us see all the tasks at one place.
  • Flowlu goes till nth level in tasks
  • It has email integrated
  • It is a collaborative system
  • Some more reporting is required
  • it should integrate with whatsapp
  • Flowlu should also start customer support applications
Flowlu is very simple and feature rich application. I have found many ways of doing a single task in Flowlu, also it is providing us lot of cloud space and email integrations. We are now assigning daily tasks amongst teams and are able to finish daily work schedules. Flowlu is also helping us keep track of customers through CRM. Overall we are happy to use it.

  • It is saving man hours
  • We know what is to be done on daily basis
  • The tasks are tracked
We have been using Trello, but because of its cost vs feature we have to shift from Trello. Flowlu has provided a more detailed task management application which is collaborative and fast.
It is full of features, there are many ways to perform a single tasks. Overall the experience is great [up to] now, support is also good. We normally get support in a few hours. The best is that everything is very easy and self explanatory so we did not find any issue in onboarding and daily usability.
Great Support normally they respond in a few hours, which is very good, the knowledge base is good and the facebook groups are also very responsive. We are finding many videos online which are explaining Flowlu more and more daily.

They manage transportation of goods for several customers. They dispatch goods, receive goods, arrange for door deliveries and maintain warehousing.

That would be me mostly, but as everyone is learning and there are plenty of resources available at Flowlu website to learn from so the team is learning.
  • Assigning Task to team
  • Tracking progress of works
  • Approving tasks completed
  • Tasks inside tasks is awesome feature
  • mind map is also helping us creating flow charts
  • email integration is keeping everything at one place
  • Customer Support System is required
  • Whatsapp integration
  • Reporting could be improve, we should be able to see primary tasks first and sub tasks inside them not outside in our reports
Definitely, there is no other option because lot of our data is going into Flowlu.

The way I've onboarded to Flowlu is by laying in the use of their modules in steps starting with project and task management, then adding in the CRM and then laying in time tracking and billing.
  • It loads quickly. This platform is fast! Makes using it enjoyable.
  • Visual overview of all modules is clean and modifiable to your preferences. Very sensible.
  • Capable of hosting most company functions under one roof.
  • More integrations should be coming. They do offer webhooks already, so that's a plus.
  • Client portal is on the roadmap. This will be very important to making it a full-fledged all-in-one app.
  • I wish you could create multiple databases with the CRM; have to settle for tags.
I believe Flowlu is probably going to be one of the best all-In-one platforms for marketing agencies. It is already top notch for freelancers and consultants. If they target e-commerce (e.g., inventory management), they could grow into a monster company.

  • Maximizing our time. Fewer apps required, fewer logins.
  • Clarifying thought process on workflow. Flowlu is helping us refine our work habits.
Flowlu is naturally going to be more constrained than ClickUp or Notion, which are basically blank canvasses. But with automations, you can come pretty close to integrating all actions within the workflow processes like competing platforms.
  • Very clean interface
  • Easy overview from dashboard
  • Highly modular
  • Can modify active modules in preferences
  • Very fast response time, really opens and closes functions without lag, which really matters to us
  • Thoughtful layout and feature set
  • Also, the Flowlu team put a lot of effort into automating onboarding so setup is among the best found on any platform
  • Integrates what it promises to work with
Super responsive team from founders to developers. They are iterating rapidly based on user feedback so they are listening and taking action.

None really. Flowlu has worked very well out of the box. One is for the administration role and setting up modules and workflow, but there is no real need for troubleshooting internally that is not already provided by Flowlu.
  • Lead management
  • Internal communications
  • Documentation
  • Time tracking
  • Invoicing
  • Outlier Wiki--document deviations from usual scenarios and how they were handled for future reference
  • Organized company files in tandem with Google Drive
  • Looking for the client portal feature to be launched. This will be a big deal and is what we need to make Flowlu our primary platform for all client interactions.
Based on out-of-the-box experience, fast loads, easy adoption, and Flowlu support, the answer is almost surely a yes.

Finally, a CRM system that is above and beyond my expectations. Really simple to use and set up.

I have tested numerous open-source and paid solutions. The main problem is that most of them require an admin with [a] developer background for the initial setup and [customizations]. Flowlu just simply works without any installation needed. All the [customizations] are done with a very user-friendly menu. On-boarding with to-dos is a really good idea 😊

Flowlu unites a long list of applications needed to run a business or simply manage tasks, leads, opportunities, and for sure your teamwork. Our financial workflow is at the moment covered by other application[s]. But with Flowlu’s export option we can simply import the exported CSV in our software.

I really love the ability to add email accounts and roles for my team, which allows [them] to manage their signatures and automatically distribute incoming leads among my teammates.

Flowlu's recent feature allowed us to set our own domain, which is a really nice to have option, especially for the upcoming customer portal.

  • Task management
  • Customer database
  • Emails
  • Sales funnel
  • Activity tracking
  • Workflow automatization
  • Office documents editing
  • External document sharing
Our customers mostly contact our company through on-site chat. If we are offline, Flowlu allowed us to set an automated task assigned to a specific account manager with [an] automated follow-up email sent to the customer.

Import our existing customer database took less than [a] few minutes with help of auto-assigned CSV fields.

Userfriendly [design] contributes to easy handling for the less tech-savvy users.

  • Transparent monthly fee
  • Free of charge mobile apps
  • Sufficient cloud capacity for documents
I have tested some open source solutions and Zoho CRM. Flowlu's price and the long list of applications offered by the service, it's quite hard to find competition for Flowlu.

For sure there are some things to optimize but, [the] Flowlu team [promise] to bring a long list of new features by the end of 2021.
Affinity, Microsoft Office 2016 (discontinued), Facebook for Business
The ease of use contributes to a fast learning curve for the less tech-savvy users. As a person who sets Flowlu up without any coding background, customizing tasks, workflows, and custom fields to [suit] our [company] needs, was really simple for me.

It was quite hard to motivate my team to switch to Microsoft Teams from Whatsapp chat. But [implementing] Flowlu in our daily workflow was not as hard as I expected.
[The] friendly Flowlu team offers an in-app support chat. They respond really fast in case you need their help. But for the setup [purpose] I haven't contacted them once. Everything is very well explained with the help of automated to-do's [which] appear as tasks when you first log in.

Flowlu team seem[s] to be really motivated and engaged.

We are testing Flowlu in our B2C business branch. After the initial test, we will switch our B2B sales team (15 more users) to Flowlu. Our B2B team is very used to the actual bookkeeping software with very limited CRM functions and more focused on [the] financial part of the business. It will take [a] few weeks more to customize Flowlu in order to meet our B2B department needs.

Since I'm the only person responsible for the implementation of new working tools, I do the support for Flowlu. After a short online training, our B2C manager will join me in order to optimize our workflows.
As Flowlu is really easy to customize, for a small to mid-size business I think 2-3 users with admin rights will be enough.
  • Lead qualification and follow up
  • Sales process optimization
  • Cover our customer's needs in terms of marketing support
  • All in one tool to manage the team
  • Kanban board
  • Sales funnel
  • Custom contact form
  • Project management
  • Cashflow
  • Customer portal
  • Knowledge base for the team and customers
I have found Flowlu while searching [for] a collaborative tool for a friend's non-profit organization. As I read the description and made a trial test, I fell in love with the tool. So we are definitely going to renew. Not only because the delivered solutions are great but also because Flowlu's roadmap seems very [promising].
