"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 PerfectForms

PGSD's most used form is the Field Trip Form for our Transportation Department. Teachers are able to submit the form, then the form will route automatically to the various approval levels. This is very convenient for all approval levels and the Transportation 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.

PerfectForms reviews

My company had a lot of little workflows that couldn't be adequately captured in our core systems, so we had a lot workflows powered by passing an excel spreadsheet around, etc. PF is a solution that allows me to build a form and a workflow in just a few minutes to automate those processes. We use it for everything from reporting Safety incidents, to managing reservations for company properties, to approving IT new user access requests (access to our IT systems, which have to get approved by a LOT of people). It is used to manage some employee benefits that didn't fit our HR system. It manages customer complaints and resolutions. It manages an employee recognition system. In short, it fills a ton of gaps between our core systems, and allows us to do it in-house and quickly.

- Scott G. IT Manager

It's great. I am able to create the forms my school district needs, and PerfectForms support is always there when I need a little help.

- Lauren H. Webmaster

Wished there was a better way of getting help on building a form or have a listing of various templates to use.

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."

PerfectForms

Pros
I love the different levels of routing that PerfectForms can complete
Teachers are able to submit the form, then the form will route automatically to the various approval levels
This is very convenient for all approval levels and the Transportation Department
Forms maintain a highly detailed audit trail of each change that occurs as they make their rounds which is very useful in terms of security
But mostly what I like and why I went with perfectforms was for the ease of setting up and creating my database solution
Both the forms and reports are easy to assemble and use."
Cons
What more could you ask for
And no they didn't pay me to write this!)
Another limitation I came across with importing videos to be embed was limited to be under 10 minutes, however there are work around for this
We also inspect every Fire department in the state of Mississippi and collect fire hydrant information around the state
When I started at the company, we collected all of this information on paper
I had previously given PerfectForms a less than stellar rating for some of those problems
This new version seems to have solved them all, and is 100% HTML based, so no more problems with using Flash."
