Pros

Love the ability to assign conversations to me so I can seamlessly start answering questions and making appts with customers.
It is super user friendly. I love that there is an app so I can respond to customers when I am home for the day.
It's also easier to quickly send and rescued documents and images from my desktop to and from customers, which results in greater ease of printing.

Cons

The phone app is AWFUL and glitches constantly. Hard to see/find who you are talking to, errors out or stops working, doesn't give alerts or gives too many alerts.
My only complaint so far with the software is where the payment portal is concerned.
Trying to cancel with Podium is the worst experience we've ever had with a company.
