"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.

The Outlook integration is phenomenal! Not only the integration with the groupware itself, but also that it integrates into the infrastructure we already have in place. Another plus is that the program doesn't force you to adopt a formal project framework. It lets you use just the features you need, and you can work in a way that adjust to existing processes. I found their staff particularly helpful. The consultants really listen to their clients and provide hands on support as needed.

About InLoox

InLoox now! Web App is the online project management platform designed for personal task management as well as collaborative project management. It features classical project management capabilities like Gantt chart planning, resource allocation & workload management, time tracking and budgeting, and document management, and pairs them with flexible task management in Kanban boards. InLoox now! Web App facilitates collaboration among teams with the InLoox Chat, the project notes function, the project history, and email notifications. This helps keeping everyone on the team up to date and prevents missing due dates or changes in the project. For temporary project team members, the role of contributor is ideal. Otherwise, user-based and role-based permissions ensure clearly defined responsibilities and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive date.

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.

InLoox reviews

Out of all the PM solutions we tested, InLoox was the most stable and easy to use. Also, the seamless Outlook integration really makes switching to InLoox easy. Pros: - great value for money - ideal for teams that are already using Outlook and use email to communicate - we really like that you can attach emails and files to tasks/projects and that is then indicated in the email - you never lose track of documents - our developers like the Gantt chart, the marketing guys like the mind mapping feature - easy implementation and regular updates - super friendly and helpful support team Cons: - The list of functions needs to be improved - We'd love to see risk management implemented - More help/tutorial videos would be great, though customer support is really excellent

- Aidan E.

InLoox PM is a project management software that offers a lot of features, but is still easy to use. The Outlook integretation has been mentioned a lot in other reviews, and it really is one of it's strongest point. Our company has been using Outlook ever since, which is why InLoox was immediately familar to the team.

- Eliza M.

We had been working with a different tool before but weren't happy with it. We were looking for a project tool that would fit into the software infrastructure we were already using, that included features that cover the entire project cycle and is still easy to use. After testing quite a few options we chose InLoox because it integrates perfectly with Outlook and for its user-friendly interface. Instead of training my team on how to use the software they were able to work with the tool immediately.

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."

InLoox

Pros
Ease of setup
Ease of use
Friendly and helpful support team.
Cons
Lots of functions that take a while to get familar with
No real risk management feature
The list of functions needs to be improved.
