User Reviews for Podio

  Working as Consulting with varied group

Exactly what i was looking for when collaborating on projects with up to 5 different companies in different locations and time zones with varying degrees of responsibility. Use it to track approvals, discuss issues and track progress etc...

  really good at some things

Sometimes I really dig Podio. It does the simple things well. But there are some obvious things that have been missing for 18 months now (comment editing, flexible user permissions within a workspace, emailing files into an app), and the Podio team refuses to ever tell you what's being worked on or give a timeline for anything. Support is good when the request is easy, but if it's something they cannot easily answer, no one gets back to you, and they close the support case before it's resolved. Plus there's no phone number or live chat or skype call possible even for premium accounts, so help requests move very slowly.

We've fully integrated this software with our company and created a really engaging experience with our clientele & creative production. We've seamlessly connected out clients through Podio on the web/mobile app, to our production team, while keeping our internal business information secure. We were considering making a similar customized CRM until we found Podio. The best part is the custom relationship database! There are still some growing pains. One option we've noticed is limited app control over sharing information. But all in all we're excited about this software and will be covering its application in depth in our Online Marketing Blog. Cheers!
