Overall Satisfaction with Crowdbase

We tried using Crowdbase as internal collaboration in our organisation however we found that while it wasn't inherently bad, an all in one solution suited us best. We found Podio and it was better for us at collaboration (like a internal Facebook) and we could also use it for project management and CRM.
  • Collaboration
  • Interaction with staff
  • Great way to engage staff and support each other
  • It is very limited
  • Although it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.
  • It isn't customisable like Podio.
  • Encourages communication
  • Easy to use
  • Before crowdbase we never though of collaborating this way
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.
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
