Planbox has been the main tool to manage the task and progress in some of the jobs I had. Overall it's a good experience to use it, it's a regular team task administration tool that allows you to track everyone's progress by establishing due dates, comments, actual progress and evaluating problems that influence eficiency on teams in order to improve future assignments.

Pros :

After using Planbox for a while I've realized some couple of things that I think are important:

  • Manage your team tasks in a really detailed way: It basically allows you to follow all the progress from everybody in almost all the ways such as time, progress of development, problems, current development stage.
  • Time: It lets you know how much a task took to be made, it helps to calculate future task times.
  • Handle multiple people for one task: Planbox allows you to manage multiple people for one specific task and this is something not all the tools of this type can do.
  • Update tasks: You can change tasks status to let everybody know when you are currently working on one task or if it's blocked, paused...It'll take the time it took you to make the task and after this, you can compare it to the estimated time established to know if it was well calculated or not in order to improve timings in future tasks.

Cons :

  • It's not really free, and most of the things it does can be done by another platforms or tools like Trello or Asana for free. Also User experience and interface is not a big thing, it's just a regular design with some good characteristics.
  • If you are an employee and your progress is being tracked on Planbox you could feel a little bit pressured sometimes because of the way it works.
  • In the end most of the places I've worked with Planbox ended changing to Trello or another free platform.
  • Based on the structure and workflow It's not ideal to apply Scrum methodology.

    We used PODIO before, but configuring it to our needs was a lot of work as we did not know how to get the max benefit out of it. Perhaps if you'd get a one-to-one session with them on the configuration stage, things would go much faster.

    Pros : 100% customizable, perhaps to any of your need, a lot of apps available

    Cons : Hard to configure it to some "best usage" in your own field. It's doable, but it takes you a lot of time than any out of the box tool that is doing a similar job.

    It seems that Apptivo cannot realistically address our suppliers issues. There is no way to easily integrate supply products into the system as margins are not automatically calculated etc. The product has loads of potential, but currently, it has serious issues with supply chain management.

    No one loves apps more than we do as a tool for improving your productivity and making life easier.  Podio will mean that I can roll up what I am doing in Trello, Zoho, CRM and Producteev into one product and at my level of business it is currently free.  That is awesome.  I don't think I've ever been happier. It's that good I would consider paying for it, even though its free.

    Having a project management solution can help keep your task and your budget on track and today we are lucky to have so many solutions available in the cloud for affordable prices.  Apptivo provides a robust solution for free – so it is definitely worth a gander.

    I've been using Podio almost since it was an startup. It was great to use it as a internal communication tool,.... however, if you need to go further on the project management and knowledge, or many other uses.. it gets complicated and limited. The way it's built allows for a lot of uses and applications, but none of them is the main purpose the application is built for, ... so in some part you will face the limitations.

    What do you like best?A decent tool for Time Tracking, Invoicing, Opportunity management. It essentially seems to be geared toward Professional Services organizations. Especially with features like Time Tracking, Invoicing, etc. I like the fact that these services are integrated and native to the application. What do you dislike?The opportunity management features, reporting, and searching definitely seem to be lacking as compared to Salesforce. The interface is clumsy and difficult to use. The app itself feels incredibly slow.
