Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Brightpod reviews

Great for a smaller organization managing marketing campaigns with a small internal team and freelancers/agencies. Keeps everything in one place, keeps us on track, and helps us collaborate across distances.

- Katie L. Associate Director of Internal Communications

I like that I can easily add projects and manage tasks across my team. As a leader, I can get a good idea what my team is working on and delegate tasks accordingly.

- David M. Web Design & Development Leader

I love that there is a collaboration tool like Brightpod that is so focused on marketing project details. However, I'm not aware of any integrations with accounting programs or even a CRM that would allow us to directly bill customers for billable time. Instead, we're running manual reports monthly to identify billable time by client and project. Then accounting has to invoice manually. It would be awesome if all of this could be automated!

Homebase reviews

Finally getting up to speed with technology. We had so many issues with our previous time clock provider, I'm so glad we found Homebase!

- Cheryl M. Administrator

I have been looking for software that combines payroll and schedule seamlessly. I love seeing the payroll cost per hour on my schedule!

- Petar R. Owner

I REALLY DO NOT LIKE the fact that they solicit employees for cash advances. That is a breach of trust in my opinion. Reporting could be better too, allowing more detailed options.

- Dave A. Business Manager

Pros & cons

Brightpod

Pros
The app has pretty colors
That is important for me as a creative professional
I have been using Brightpod for a while now and it is a great service
It helps to organize all of the components of a project
My time with Brightpod has been amazing so easy to manage tasks and different jobs easily with fantastic support if you ever need help
Brightpod is great for staying organized as a team
For writing projects it has been great and no one ends up writing the same piece of content because they are all so easily assigned."

Cons
The scrolling on the pods can be a little annoying if it's a particularly full pod
I've noticed tasks get duplicated for no reason
The customer service and reaching out ranges from ignoring you to just annoying
We have so many different pods that they get lost at times."

Homebase

Pros
I love the scheduling and time and attendance features
I like the flexibility and the abilities of my team to control their own schedule and time off
The ability to use a phone, tablet or computer as a timeclock is awesome
I have 3 stations where they can clock in, 2 were already there, just downloaded the app to make them a timeclock too
I love the way the ease with which my employees can switch shifts with each other within the app
The iPhone app is great
My overall experience with Homebase has been amazing
I have been with them for many years, and to just watch and see how they have evolved and improved, has been amazing."

Cons
There is no undo or go back for example if I accidentally change or delete something it is what it is
No option to put a reason why an employee is not working their normal scheduled day (PTO, bereavement, medical leave, etc.)
Correcting missed clock-ins / outs is brutal
Staff need to leave a note to the manager and then I have to interpret that note into the correction
It may be weak internet signal, or just older aged employees not knowing how to use their phones
Some times employees have to download the app again to fix problems."
