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

Most popular feedback for Localist

Our previous website calendar system consisted of our staff manually entering events when the public would email them to us. Even with copy/pasting each field, it would take up some time to process a lot of requests. Now, we can approve or deny events with the click of a button and the public takes the time to format the events themselves. This also allows for required fields so we don't receive events with missing information.

Localist reviews

We looked at many different event software solutions before deciding on Localist. It's a great product, and the customer service is unparalleled.

- Nicky E. Associate Director of Digital Media

I'm very familiar with Localist after having used it for a few years so I'm reluctant to change to a different email merge system but I do find it to be user-friendly and easy to introduce people to.

- Raymond R. Web Designer

In our particular application, there just isn't very much traffic. The idea of a dedicated event calendar can feel like too much when everyone already uses their own CRM or email lists to communicate about events. More flexible integrations would be a nice feature, like if Localist could pull in events automatically from third-party CRMs. Customizeable reminder messages and follow-up messaging would also add value.

Boostlingo reviews

Flexibility, ease of use and the fact that we can access certain features via a mobile app. The price is extremely competitive compared to some other IMS system on the market that don’t have all the features of Boostlingo. Integration with QuickBooks and their Boostlingo Connect option is quite good too.

- Thomas L. - Chief Marketing Officer

This software helps us to level the playing field in our industry. The ability to customize everything was a key factor for us. But the ability to setup, track and manage everything in one place was awesome as well.

- Kim B. - Senior Account Manager

Our experience thus far has been very positive. As far as the Boost team goes, they have been flexible and worked with us on our needs at our pace. We have been able to give our input and suggestions on things we wanted to have in the platform and actually see changes made, which many other companies would not do. The platform gives our company the ability to expand and scale our services.

Pros & cons

Localist

Pros
The solution is very flexible to our needs and the branding capabilities are impressive
The ease of use and empowerment of users to submit events
Localist is very easy to setup and administer and is a very powerful calendar platform to help manage and promote our many events on campus
Administrators love the ease of setup, reporting and the configuration flexibility."
Cons
The webinar on Channels was so confusing that it took me months to figure out what they were talking about
Again, lots of learn-by-doing
We also found an issue with users being able to create their own avatar, in some cases the avatar could be offensive and there is no way to easily "report" that to the calendar admins
Support has been generally terrible
Anything outside of the basic functionality is simply not supported and they have been unwilling to implement ANY requests that we've made
On several occasions the answers provided by support have been blatantly wrong and only through our own channels have we been able to fix problems that the vendor created."

Boostlingo

Pros
The support is good and they are eager to work in a collaborative way with clients to develop features and enhancements for the software
The support from crowd source interpreters is a big help for when our in house interpreters are not available
I am also overall impressed with connection times and call center staffing
I love the ability to call up different information for my varied needs
I love that interpreters can accept or decline shifts directly
Boostlingo has been super great to us and always had our back
We appreciate their expertise."
Cons
Getting the calls some people find it hard, they miss them in a split of a second
No relevant cons for the time being, but I'll post if any
The admin section is not intuitive
It's often hard to find where to apply specific changes and took quite a while to get used to
I struggled with one of the broadcasting settings
I think if it were worded differently, I would have solved the problem on my own."
