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!

Parallax reviews

Overall, it's an improvement over Forecast (our previous tool), but performance and ease of use are somewhat prohibitive to rolling this out to the rest of the team for heavier adoption. Despite having so many users, only a few of the people on the team have been able to really use the tools effectively without intensive onboarding.

- Joseph W. Technology Director

The Parallax team is really nice, and I'm rooting for them! I think that in order to be more useful, we could use better communication around release notes (or some expectations about when/what type of communication we can expect). Sometimes I crack it open and there are new features that I find myself needing to learn on the fly. Cool to have new features (and mostly I really can figure them out) but some closing of those loops would be helpful.

- Vanessa S. Head of Client Strategy

I can already see the benefits of adding the Parallax system to our team. It will be very impactful for quick reporting and real-time data. The ramp-up to get the data in was really rough and my expectation was there would be a dedicated team on the Parallax side to help make the ramp-up easier. There was high-level guidance provided but not many proactive "best practices" based on AG's contracts until I brought them to meetings. Have a more standard approach to evaluating company's contracts and how you can easily add them to Parallax would help go-forward

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."

Parallax

Pros
Great team to work with, strong future for the software
We didn't want to sacrifice user satisfaction for the new functionality
The Parallax team has been enthusiastic and helpful
Parallax has helped us break away from spreadsheet -based talent planning
It's more stable and reliable than our prior approach and promises to support us well as we grow
The team is amazing, the software is amazing, I literally can't recommend this enough
This is head and shoulders about its competition."

Cons
The URLs don't capture the state of the interface you're looking at (different insight views, date ranges, etc.), making them useless to bookmark and copy/paste to other people
This is made more complicated because URLs can't be bookmarked or copy/pasted to coworkers
The URLs change periodically, which makes them useless to bookmark
Often defaults to views based on quarter and I have to repeat efforts to set my filters
When the team and project sizes get larger, this becomes a problem
There are so many things & options, all in not so obvious locations
Graphs & tables do not have consistent colors across the board and it is hard to locate a key for what everything means."
