It is our main tool for coaching agent, it is a big help for us to take note of what are the things or our bottleneck in our works. It is so amazing because we can review it anytime and check whether we are still in line with our goals! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There are various issues and bugs. I'm actually writing this because the application is down and the office has had to make do without it, causing a lot of complications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The Podio support was completely tragic. Additional cost 'training forums' are predatory and absurdly incapable of aiding. Important tools (i.e. Import/Export, Globiflow reliability) are flawed and not on any revision roadmap. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

too many messages as everyone is commenting, emails ar eannoying too, because so many people can work on the project it tends to get overcomplicated as everyone is giving their opinion on everything Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Having used podio for over 8 years (!) As CRM and also as means of sharing tasks with certain staff it is perfect. I can setup projects, import excel, csv and track one-off jobs or larger contracts, sharing with workforce.

Podio is being used at our company for all aspects of day-to-day tasks. It is being used as a project management tool, a time tracking system, a resource management tool and even an inventory management tool. Its open architecture allows us to create any number of applications that are custom managed for our company and addressed specific problems or processes. For our clients, it's a valuable tool for project management, approval process system, communication portal and resource handling.

Podio is our magic toolbox for managing any kind of project and communication. Web based collaboration changed our business in the last two years. First, we worked internally with Podio to get more structured with ideas. Then, we dived into customer relation management and agile project management. That was the point, where other solutions felt stiffy, but Podio gave flexibility. Furthermore, Podio streamlined our communication and coordination of planning in many ways. Now, we are working with most of our customers within Podio, together.
If anything has to be tweaked or changed – in Podio you can do that in minutes! If you need high security and want the maximum possible transparency of what is shared to whom or who is allowed to see your data – Podio's concept of work spaces is great! Easy communication – get in contact with any team member or Podio user: chat, audio or video conferencing is just one click away! Work the way you want – in Podio it's easy to structure your data in Apps and to configure workflows that meet your personal needs.

Whole organization. Addresses business problems related to an increasingly distributed & fragmented workforce-- different time zones, geographies, and roles.
Makes interfacing with colleagues & departments a more human experience (profiles & pictures) Digitizes task and makes more users accountable Reduces, if not eliminates, the need for email.

We use Podio extensively. We also use the Workflow Automations to help where Podio has shortfalls. Podio is the backbone of our sales, support, product development and management. Podio allowed us to build the workspace we needed which is fairly unique. The flexibility to customize your apps to hold sales, prospects, projects, support, etc was incredible. We share data from Podio with our custom SaaS application and vice versa. It feels like we have leveraged every possible feature Podio has to offer.
Crippling feature development leaves you wondering if Podio is close to end-of-life Severe lack of communication. You HAVE to figure out your own solutions no matter what you pay for the software. Inability to get even basic reports across multiple applications. Data is siloed in each app. It has relationships but you cannot generate queries based on related apps. Downtime. Podio has gone done far too many times for days without any compensation to lost time. Very slow page builds. Data seems to be coming from slow datasources and takes a long time to complete rendering.

Podio is still under evaluation at Apartments247.com, but we are using it to track Leads, Deals, Sales and Cancellations for the Sales & Marketing Department. The initial hope was that it could also work for Development and Production, bringing 3 departments under a single, streamlined system. That remains to be proved one way or the other, however.
Task management is an afterthought, unfortunately. For complex production operations that need detailed tasks, recurring tasks, prerequisite tasks and staggered due dates for a large number of projects, Podio simply does not cut the mustard. In this area, Asana reigns supreme. It's unfortunate that simple things like due dates are missing from the app item task list view. You have to click on the task to see its due date; there is no project view of due dates. You can see due dates on the global task view, but then you can't see the app item or project that task is part of. In a production dept. with a lot of duplicate named tasks, the global task view is all but useless. Unfortunately, there is no project-based, big picture view of tasks, assignees and due dates in a single view. If you have a large team doing a lot of Production work, go with Asana or AskCow. We use Asana. Don't even bother telling Podio about their shortcomings. The absurdly negative answers I got from my assigned client services representative were (and I quote) "Tasks are a simple function. They cannot be customized" and when I asked if I could make tasks more prominent, "tasks will always be on the bottom of the item." When I suggested app items could benefit from color coding (common in all major text editors, spreadsheets and traffic intersections), I was hit with the insulting, "A color-coded rainbow of an item list won't happen" and most frustratingly, "You are one customer among very, very many." Thanks for nothing, Podio support. They simply do not care about you or your company's needs, and clearly only want to do business in aggregate. Terrible, deplorable customer service. Bad enough on its own to not want to do business with them on principle alone. Automated Workflows, while exciting initially, turned out to be rudimentary at best. You have two triggers and two effects, giving you a total multiplier of four whole options. Nothing to write home about there. While the text-based reporting is great, a total lack of charts or graphs means I still need to resort to using spreadsheets to visualize sales performance. (or another software solution)

We tried Podio for a few weeks among fou of us at the agency. As an organization with remote workers, we were looking for a central web home for operations. We wanted a place for storing documents, quick chats, account updates, personal news, meeting notes, all of the daily water cooler type of stuff.
Adding 'one more thing' to check proved the downfall. Interface with google docs wasn't smooth.
