"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 KiBiz

Most of the problems we have experienced for our organization stem from our modifications that we required to fit our model, forcing us to go through a few tweaks before getting it right. This adds cost. On the flip side, the staff with KiBiz will work with you any way possible to help you achieve what you are looking for; providing you with a product to fit your needs at still a lower overall cost than purchasing other major ERP software that can be extremely costly.

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.

KiBiz reviews

KiBiz System was able to customize our program for our distribution of bakery products, using file maker. Some key features that the program allowed us to do was creating standard customer orders with the ability to make daily overriding changes including printing, emailing and E-faxing customers invoice by routes. Kibiz program contains features that allows us to apply payments and make customer weekly statements. Kibiz has been able to customize the program to meet our needs and has a great customer support team.

- Anthony F. Owner

The software is so customizable and easy to get tutorials on.

- Charles C. Project Manager

Frustrating!!! Time Consuming, Inflexible, no good report unless you are paying lot of extra fees.

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."

KiBiz

Pros
Great experience with these guys
They have an efficient process with video chatting to make your system the way you want
The software is so customizable and easy to get tutorials on
The software and team were helpful and critical to the business
We like the ease of scanning out and in our rental props."
Cons
Most modifications are minor but we did have a few costly changes, but still within reason for what the product will end up saving you over time
Most of the problems we have experienced for our organization stem from our modifications that we required to fit our model, forcing us to go through a few tweaks before getting it right
Wrong Calculation : sometimes, I put the Sales / PO quantity in the file, it does not calculate
I had one sales transaction that I put item number, but the selling price did not show up
This a serious problem that exposes our internal business/cost structure to our customers and vendors."
