"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 Traction Tools

Traction Tools helps users follow Traction / EOS to a T. Capturing action items and issues is easy. The software makes it simple to conduct L10s. I highly recommend using Traction Tools if your company is running on EOS.

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.

Traction Tools reviews

It's been a true game-changer in our business. We started using EOS to run our business a little over a year ago. Until bringing on Traction Tools, is was difficult to track and implement the processes on our own. Traction Tools has really now become a platform that consistently keeps everyone in the business on track, focused on where we are going, and driving accountability across every position in the company.

- Abigail K. Owner

Extremely easy to use, very reliable up-time, and the best customer service I have ever experienced.

- Tyler D. CEO / Visionary

BY the same token, sometimes the very structure that I just praised becomes cumbersome. It can be difficult to figure out what comes next. It's not always clear how to take it to the next topic. And when it comes to building Rocks or adding things to the Traction-site, it wasn't intuitive as to how to do it.

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."

Traction Tools

Pros
When using the Traction Tools website for Traction Meetings, it's VERY user-friendly
When you start a meeting, it keeps everyone in the meeting on track with what there is to discuss
to-dos and tasks
Works well for alignment.
Cons
It is not quite as customizable as I wish it were and it can be a little confusing to navigate
More of a concern with the EOS methodology that we feel with this software is that sometimes it rewards solving issues with false urgency, and can make it difficult to focus on the overall strategy as we investigate issues.
