Pros

I believe it's a good product and it has good potential, given the team's impressive efforts toward meet the rapid changing needs of their current and future customers.
Very satisfied and have experienced a great deal of positive and helpful customer support. Really, no walks through a string of phones tree choices to get to someone who can help.
While it may take a moment to input your needed data, the interface is user friendly and the customer service is top flight. Students and faculty celebrate.

Pros

At the end of the day, Flowlu is a great project management tool that is worth using. The team at Flowlu has gone out of its way to make this app as comprehensive and powerful as possible.
The support team is VERY responsive and know their product well. For users who want a more advanced set up, they have great tutorials and tips on how to make Flwolu work best for you.
Flowlu's capabilities are similar and the pricing is better. The ability to navigate my team and my clients through the sales process with ease is vital to my business.

Cons

Even sending emails to selected students is a hassle. Adding meeting times to courses is awfully difficult and annoying.
We've struggled with finding some features at times, and in the case of marketing automation, we've discovered that Populi's system isn't quite fully-featured enough for our needs.
Compared to some competitors however, Populi is limited.

Cons

Initially, I was concerned with receiving recurring invoices, estimating, project management, and figuring out how to get customers to pay by the invoice.
The main problem is that most of them require an admin with developer background for the initial setup and customisations. Flowlu just simply works without any installation needed.
Missing Client portal (already working on it). Multiple languages / possibility of translation.
