Create processes the way you want them

2018-03-16

Pros

I love that you're able to customize the processes/work flow. Literally, any workflow that you would want, you can build.

Cons

This isn't necessarily a con, but if you don't know how the backend of the software works, it can be hard to set up. Luckily, we have an employee who is familiar with the product and set up everything for us. If I were a new user with no experience, I could see myself becoming confused.

Gets the job done but not very intuitive

2018-12-16

Pros

Within each task the workflow is intuitive and it's easy to follow the flow of comments/updates as a task is worked on.

Cons

The overall navigation within podio is not very easy to learn, and could be made much more intuitive. I find it difficult to find tasks (there should be an easy way to access all of your tasks- not ones that you are working on but ones that you've submitted) that doesn't involve using the search bar.

Happy with Podio

2014-09-12

Ideal for managing CMS content flow or CRM funnels.

Pros

Builds as easy as lego-bricks and set up a workflow in minutes. It helps you get work done that would otherwise be overwhelming and makes it a breeze to switch between different project teams.

Cons

I am missing a Windows Phone app that lives up to the quality level of the iPhone app.

Good process flow tool

2018-10-16

We are getting deals and making money, and we are relying on Podio as our current database. I do believe there is a better system developed for real estate investors that would work better for us and support our follow up process more efficiently and effectively, but for a generic database or project management sytem, Podio is very functional.

Pros

The app-based system allows anyone to use in different ways depending on the different process flows. I like the task functionality and integration with other apps.

Cons

The system goes down fairly often and prevents leads from flowing successfully into our database. I'm not sure if this is due to glitches in our automations or a site-wide problem. The apps may pull data from other apps, but the information is separate. As a real estate investor, I see this as a con because if a lead information is transferred from one status to another (into another app), the information is created again rather than updated in a separate location. If a change is made in one app, it isn't reflected in the other. There may be workflows that could help with this for the field data, but not for notes left of the activity.

Amazing Customizable CRM with lots of hidden power using add ons.

2018-02-12

Pros

The GlobiFlow additional service is incredibly powerful to automate particular process flow within Podio and externally.

Cons

The user interface is in need of updating. Some widgets like scroll bars are cumbersome to use with tables due to a scroll bar within scroll bar effect that makes the page and table scroll in a strange way. Also, some basic capabilities of certain form widgets are missing like default values setting.
