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!

SmartDraw reviews

It is perfect for drawing projects, has a wide range of templates that make it easier for you to work and all the types of diagrams you need (at least it is for my IT area), it has a desktop and online version that allows you to work in any place, it is very useful.

- Gerson C. Arquitectura, Diseño y Desarrollo de Aplicaciones Web

The only benefit I have received is when I quickly print what I am working on, so that this horribly unstable and unpredictable program will not just lose it and delete even saved work from its memory. When you want to make certain measurements, you will never be able to do so, because it only allows "anchored" points to be measured - not the item or space you wish to measure. It is impossible to scale down their furniture selections/templates because they have it set to scale down the width, when all you want to change is the length. It has been a disappointing waste of time and money.

- Diana M. Owner

I'm frustrated and angry that I'm not able to use my OWN WORK, or even VIEW it!

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."

SmartDraw

Pros
I have had only positive experiences with the use of Smart Draw
Great software for flow charts and process maps
Used extensively for 3 years under a one time license
Smartdraw has made it a lot easier to plan out a new warehouse layout to scale
It is a very helpful tool
Product has many symbol libraries in mechanical/plumbing/industrial/fire protection and more than LucidChart, which is good for my needs
Compatibility with Visio and LucidChart a plus."

Cons
Sad to say this is the worst CAD Package I have ever experienced
It regularly crashes on me as others have detailed
If it crashes once you may as well start again as it will crash continually after that
It remains to be seen whether SmartDraw or Firefox respond with an acknowledgment of the problem and a stated intention to fix it
I will post an update later in the week, accordingly
But the show-stopper is that, at least in this release, the software is very unstable and crashes repeatedly as another reviewer commented."
