"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.

- Craig B. Assistant Director

Kanbanize reviews

"Flexible and Powerful Product, Great User Experience, Excellent Support" What do you like best about Kanbanize? The product is very flexible, allowing you to configure cards, columns, swimlanes, and boards in whatever configuration your team needs. It also has a very rich set of APIs so that you can integrate it with any other tools your team uses. The support team is outstanding, quick to answer questions and provide examples. The support knowledge base has great answers and is very good at matching your questions to correct answers. The development team delivers new functionality every month, and there's always something in there that makes me glad to use the new release. An excellent product in every sense. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. What do you dislike about Kanbanize? The rich and complex functionality is a big pill to swallow if you're at KMM level 0 or 1. However, if you keep it simple and do the absolute minimum that you need to do to start using it, you can overcome that daunting mountain of functionality. Kanbanize provides a series of nice intro videos to help you do that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. Recommendations to others considering Kanbanize: Start simple Watch the intro videos Use the knowledge base/support site--it's outstanding Build one or more test/sandbox boards and play with them Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. What problems is Kanbanize solving and how is that benefiting you? We have standardized key workflows with Kanbanize and are using it on a daily basis to help everyone prioritize their work and focus on those things that need attention right away. It also helps us to provide visibility across teams for all work in progress. We use it to organize and manage our Objectives/Key Results and to provide visibility to the job flow process within our scheduling and production departments.

Smooth and easy, exceptional support Pros Linking various boards together and updating status across different boards Cons having multiple boards with cards linked accross all boards is at the beginning a bit overwhelming... but you get used to it in very fast time... (and internal guidelines help a lot)

- Martin T.

"Simple and helpful" Overall: Kanbanize made a better organization possible to fulfill my tasks, especially for development projects. I became a more productive employee. Pros: It is very easy to deal with this app. Kanbanize allows in a very practical way to work with agile methods for project development/implementation. It basically works with to do/doing/done method, draggind the cards with all details. We can organize all ideas quickly before setting priorities. Cons: Sometimes it's a little bit difficult to find an old card to review a project. As I work in an environment with more than 50 Kanbanize users, and we create separated pages by department, I sometimes waste a little time (5 to 10 minutes) to find the card.

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."

Kanbanize

Pros
It improved the daily activities of the team by giving a clear vision of what it has to be done and where we should improve
Its been super good, I am still learning a lot
Each ticket can be colour-coded so one can immediately see their distribution
It is also great to be able to link tickets."
Cons
Analytics module, difficult to interpret depending on cards done and archived
No clear rules around archived and done cards (is confusing)
Then, the assistant filled the kanbanize boards to give the workers in the factory the information needed to execute the assigned task, log time, notify when problems, etc."
