"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 Shoeboxed

Overall, I was looking for a way to stop keeping receipts in a literal shoebox in my filing cabinet. This fit the bill. Ultimately, I used the mail-in service only once, and the app occasionally. My primary usage was for digital receipts. Because of my minor annoyance with forwarding emails, I do think the app is mostly useful for those with paper receipts, so I would probably only highly recommend it for that purpose.

About Shoeboxed

Shoeboxed is easiest way for your business to track expenses. Submit receipts using their mobile app, eReceipt uploader, or prepaid mail-in envelopes. Shoeboxed then scans, data enters, and categorizes everything into a secure, searchable online account that is accepted by the IRS. Plans start at $29 per month.

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.

Shoeboxed reviews

I like it. It saves me a lot of time. It's the best service like this that I know of (and I'm not likely to want to switch at this point anyway).

- Richard H. Software Consultant

Maybe there are other solutions out there that compete, but I haven't found them. Shoeboxed has been my go to application for a couple years now and I tell everyone about them. It's the simplest concept that I cannot live without. You take pictures of your receipts and it directly imports them into my accounting software. It let's you know in the phone app when it cannot read certain data but otherwise it's pretty dependable. I cannot live without this app.

Time and cost effectiveness!

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."

Shoeboxed

Pros
I like that I can easily photograph and log my receipts and keep track of them for my taxes
Overall I am happy to have a place to put my receipts and to make things easier for when I am doing my taxes
I like how this is an app specifically for tracking receipts
It is very easy to lose receipts if you're not careful
We like this as it keeps all of our invoices in one place and easy to upload."
Cons
I finally lost it, they have no live chat which they say they do
I sent an online message, I emailed them again and called and left a message threatening them
I have left several messages and email
No one ever answers the phone and never return calls
It's not easy to keep up with all our Business receipts and the headache of scanning all our documents then storing them was a nightmare
There are scanning errors and inconsistencies
Sometimes when I search for an amount, the invoice doesn't show up."
