TurbineHQ is Awesome ... We Will Start Using it Again

Verified Reviewer  23rd of December, 2015

Sean St. Heart, Co-Founder of Charitable Humans
My non-profit company actively used Turbine's purchase order application from June of 2014 through February of 2015. We discontinued using Turbine because there was no way to delete "completed" purchase orders and our account got very cluttered. We never cancelled our account, and when I logged in to do research for this review, I noticed that there is now a "delete" option for each order. I don't know if this feature existed in the past and we overlooked it, but that seems unlikely since the "delete" button is quite prominently displayed. Whatever the case, our company will resume using TurbineHQ to organize and prioritize our future purchases now that our biggest problem with the application has been solved.

Pros: Easy to learn/use Affordable pricing Different permission/approval levels Lots of space for notes/adding coupon codes

Cons: Does not add exact date of creation/approval/completion of purchase orders. Employees must remember to add a note with the date any time there is a status change.

Response from Turbine

Thanks for the kind review and helpful feedback.

By design, we don't allow people to delete 'completed' purchase orders to prevent fraud. You can delete POs prior to approval however, which is the delete button is sometimes visible and sometimes not. However, you can use the filter menu to hide completed POs from your views to reduce clutter. Also, on request to support@turbinehq.com we can add a no-cost customisation to your account to allow admin users to delete completed POs. The system does indeed store the exact date of creation/approval/completion for each request - you can see it by in the comments audit trail under the request. Just hover your mouse of the time stamp, ie where it says 'yesterday' or 'last week' and you'll get the exact time and date.

Great, simple system for recording leave and expenses

Simon Hedger, Nubix
TurbineHQ provides a great, simple to use system for recording/requesting annual leave and , expenses at a very reasonable cost especially for busy small business owners.

Pros: Very cost effective

Eliminates paperwork

17th of May, 2013

Gino Cordt (Foodpanda)
If you still have to fill out forms and collect signatures to get approvals for anything in your company, you have to get in touch with Matthew. At first, we weren't sure TurbineHQ could be configured to suit our needs out of the box, but Matthew helped us to implement it and now it simplifies / eliminates our paperwork and email at Foodpanda immensely.

Sorting out purchase orders

13th of May, 2013

Gabriela Vinader
Before Turbine, purchase orders were ‘a bit of a nightmare.’ Staff would email me with requests and then I'd enter the request on a spreadsheet and reply with a made-up PO number. It wasn’t really working, and nobody knew what was going on. Now everybody has an account on Turbine, they can log in and make requests using the suppliers and accounting codes that I set up. I can simply review and approve requests at the click of a button. Even if I miss an email, I can sign in and see all the requests in one place.

Pros: It’s just more efficient and cleaner

Cons: None

Useful, straightforward and easy to use

13th of May, 2013

Tom Allason
Turbine gives us a single view of who’s off and how much holiday time people have is very useful. With 35 staff working in offices in Chelmsford, Shoreditch and San Francisco, having a straightforward and easy-to-use tool like this is essential.

Pros: Turbine is very straightforward and easy to use

Turbine helps recruitment firm manage holidays and time ff

Jamie Hartnett- Marketing Manager at Sigmar Recruitment
We use Turbine to manage holiday and sickness requests for more than 80 staff. The system is easy for our staff to use and saves us a lot of paperwork. The guys at Turbine, especially Matthew, are extremely friendly, professional and a pleasure to deal with. They respond and remedy any issue by email within minutes. I would highly recommend.
