"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 Runn

Moving to Runn meant that our whole project-management team could keep our future booked work up to date, and reliable projections of our future billing could be generated whenever we need them.

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

Runn reviews

I go to Runn to look whether we are tracking towards a particular business goal, the utilisation rate - basically the health of the team and the business.

- Heather Page Chief of Staff

Runn is essential to what we do on a day-to-day basis.

- Rich Gigante Chief Revenue Officer

An amazing tool that has transformed the way we plan, schedule and forecast work in our agency.

- Nick Frandsen CEO

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."

Runn

Pros
The team are helpful and responsive to feedback
The tool is good and gets better every month
Good Value for Money, Great Customer Service, and Solid Understanding of the Use Case
Powerful and feature rich, yet easy to understand and set up
Modelling my team, projects, and resourcing took a remarkably short time and prompted one or two very good questions I hadn't considered
We made the great decision to start using Runn in early 2021 and it has been a blessing
Easy to set up, customize and roll out to the different teams."
Cons
The holistic planning view for product development is a little bit tricky to do
I would say that we're missing API features, but having public roadmap of planned features would be a plus
On last two years there were no one reason to switch to another tool
Some Reports and permission levels are missing or are limited and we've had to figure out workarounds."
