Years ago I was on the prowl for a cost effective CRM solution that perfectly suited my needs. Since then I have stumbled over Highrise, Bento, Contactizer, Salesforce, and Nimble. After various trials and careful consideration these were all determined singular in their resolution. My business involves project management, large networks, contact communication, collaborative workflows, various events, asset management, mobile offices, third-party platforms, and so much more. It’s seemingly impossible to find anything that perfectly fits my needs, because every business is different. A custom Filemaker database sounds choice, however, maintenance is an impossible hurdle considering our small staff with scalable projects of varying independent contractors. Regardless, productivity & efficiency is the cornerstone of my productions, so a decisive solution is inevitable.
Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort. – Paul Meyer
To that end, I invested a lot of money in Daylight, a beautiful CRM with iOS integration. For a year it was essential in managing projects, communication, and tasks. While a noteworthy solution, its customization was very limited and the company was slow at updating its ailing feature-set. Miraculously, I one day discovered Podio, which changed everything!
I was staggered by the ability to implement customizable methods of Project Management, CRM & Lead, Event Management, Collaboration & Social Intranet, Task Management, Automated Workflows, Comprehensive Reports, Alerts, iOS/Android integration & customization, and so much more. The foundation was so simple, yet powerful. With hard work, we have build a platform for managing our entire business through Podio and more importantly, it’s essential in our day-to-day activities outside the office.
Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work. – Stephan King
Podio has become my right hand companion that creates opportunities for intelligent planning and focused effort on set. Such productivity allows us to do things that were never before possible. As an essential variable of our formula to success, appropriate attention is allocated to each present moment – where we spend less time thinking and more time doing. Standing behind the Directors Monitor and watching our creative vision come to fruition is no accident, but a product of our well-oiled machine. We’ll let our spec ad tell the truth.
