"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.

Peace of Mind. My information is secure and isn't going anywhere. It is always available to me. I have a very good rapport with my Houdini IT Department.

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.

HoudiniESQ reviews

The ease of having everything in one place that does everything a firm needs. I haven't found anything that our firm needs that Houdini does not already do!

- Christopher M. Litigation Specialist

After evaluating Clio, LexisNexis' Firm Manager, MyCase and then settling on RocketMatter. We now use HoudiniEsq to efficiently manage our law practice.

- Peter Briskin Esq. Fishbeyn & Briskin P.C.

Head and shoulders above any other package on the market.

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."

HoudiniESQ

Pros
We are happy with the program and its learnability
We'd just like some fine tuning to be done
Working with the Houdiniesq team has been wonderful, they will help you in whatever manner he can
It really helps me and my staff stay on top of all our cases
It has an uncanny ability to streamline our workflow
I am very impressed with the robustness of the application and the ability to maximize billable hours and tracking."
Cons
What I have found frustrating in learning to use the system which I am by no means an expert is that the customer service I have found to be hasty and sometimes a bit rude
In the end, my final verdict on it is this: Houdini was, once, on-par with the other practice management options
But Houdini has failed to keep up with the times, and it shows in many ways
The database will, occasionally delete or lose entries on its own but when you call tech support they blame you for it
I really had to scratch my head to identify any faults or weaknesses in Houdini."
