"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.

Most popular feedback for Highrise

I have been able to keep under control interactions with my customers regarding both sales and customer service. By using tasks, I never missed a follow up, an employee's birthday or anniversary. The software has given me a great sense of control and made it look simple.

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.

Highrise reviews

Great! Store hundreds of contacts in a cloud based database and easily zip through them. They can be tagged however you imagine. The problem is that it takes a lot of time at the end of the day/week/month/cycle to go through and categorize them. I wish there were more automated workflows.

- Blake B. Ecommerce & Consumer Products Manager

This is a brilliant CRM tool. Reminders and task list relating to contacts is great but having emails 'bcc' everything through the CRM is a time saver!

- Alex R. Account Manager

Allows our team and clients easy access to all communication and orders with our accounts. Highrise is a screen always open and in constant use. It's a very easy to use and appealing CRM.

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."

Highrise

Pros
You can send mass emails, store databases, assign tasks to employees, set reminders, and more
Great task manager in my opinion
Highrise has been a tremendous help when it comes to organizing and improving my freelance business
The alerts and notification emails highlighting recent events is useful as well
I highly recommend using Highrise
Good contact data base management where I can refer back to important conversation threads which might go amiss in a busy inbox
Also good for a Virtual Assistant to be able to access remotely."
Cons
Countless controls and functions and sections and definitions and miserable standard of support meant it was shelved within a few months
The search option is weak, needs work - results are difficult to read and undrestnd
They can be tagged however you imagine
The problem is that it takes a lot of time at the end of the day/week/month/cycle to go through and categorize them
It used to interface with gmail but has now stopped that and will no longer receive upgrades, which is a shame."
