When is comes to spreadsheets that teams are updating and accessing constantly, Smartsheet is the tool! Although is doesn't do some of the in depth features of Excel, it's great for collaboration. When tracking projects and deadlines, SmarthSheet makes it super simple for an entire team to make changes without going through the pains of using methods like those of Sharepoint. The learning curve is simple and the benefits of having easy team collaboration make a huge difference in speeding up productivity.

Pros :

  • Easy learning curve.
  • Great for collaboration.

Cons :

  • Not quite as robust as Excel, but gets the job done.
  • More for collaboration, not for pivot charts, etc.

    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.

    What do you like best?End-user development. This is an online spreadsheet, a 21st Century version of Excel on steroids. As a spreadsheet it allows very flexible formandfunction, the most flexible I've ever seen in an app. I'm also impressed by how well this company executes its vision. It's solid. I've only needed tech support once and I got a reply within 3 hours. What do you dislike?Nothing really. I wish it had some features it doesn't yet have, such as tighter integration with Gmail, but there's nothing I dislike.

    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.

    I made the mistake of purchasing a year's worth of service. Not a good idea, although they say that you can cancel at any time, that does not mean they will refund your money. So, $168 down the drain. The program is not particularly flexible and takes a lot of ongoing maintenance to keep it up and relevant. Beyond that, it does not archive data well. I would pass in favor of virtually anything else.
