Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Parallax reviews

Overall, it's an improvement over Forecast (our previous tool), but performance and ease of use are somewhat prohibitive to rolling this out to the rest of the team for heavier adoption. Despite having so many users, only a few of the people on the team have been able to really use the tools effectively without intensive onboarding.

- Joseph W. Technology Director

The Parallax team is really nice, and I'm rooting for them! I think that in order to be more useful, we could use better communication around release notes (or some expectations about when/what type of communication we can expect). Sometimes I crack it open and there are new features that I find myself needing to learn on the fly. Cool to have new features (and mostly I really can figure them out) but some closing of those loops would be helpful.

- Vanessa S. Head of Client Strategy

I can already see the benefits of adding the Parallax system to our team. It will be very impactful for quick reporting and real-time data. The ramp-up to get the data in was really rough and my expectation was there would be a dedicated team on the Parallax side to help make the ramp-up easier. There was high-level guidance provided but not many proactive "best practices" based on AG's contracts until I brought them to meetings. Have a more standard approach to evaluating company's contracts and how you can easily add them to Parallax would help go-forward

Geekbot reviews

So easy to deploy, manage and customize to our needs, this is exactly what we needed in this pandemic. We are now 9 people working remotely and Geekbot just makes things so easier for us in this context. Slack integration is as easy as it is a lifesaver!

- Mathieu R. Head of Strategy

Great tool to automate daily procedures in a remote work environment.

- Julio M. CEO

I dislike that I can not add questions unless I create or generate it in the actual bot when I am writing in my answers to the Geekbot questionaire at the end of the day.

Pros & cons

Parallax

Pros
Great team to work with, strong future for the software
We didn't want to sacrifice user satisfaction for the new functionality
The Parallax team has been enthusiastic and helpful
Parallax has helped us break away from spreadsheet -based talent planning
It's more stable and reliable than our prior approach and promises to support us well as we grow
The team is amazing, the software is amazing, I literally can't recommend this enough
This is head and shoulders about its competition."

Cons
The URLs don't capture the state of the interface you're looking at (different insight views, date ranges, etc.), making them useless to bookmark and copy/paste to other people
This is made more complicated because URLs can't be bookmarked or copy/pasted to coworkers
The URLs change periodically, which makes them useless to bookmark
Often defaults to views based on quarter and I have to repeat efforts to set my filters
When the team and project sizes get larger, this becomes a problem
There are so many things & options, all in not so obvious locations
Graphs & tables do not have consistent colors across the board and it is hard to locate a key for what everything means."

Geekbot

Pros
Overall I enjoy using geekbot
Hope that geekbot team will provide us with new cool futures in the future
Also love that people can pick and choose the best time for them to fill their standup, that's especially practical for contractors that have variable hours
I found myself having fun and finding better ways to organize myself and the team to answer better to geekbot
I didn't need to train/explain it to our users, everyone understood its purpose
It offers a simple way to improve internal communication, that is helpful and not intrusive for anyone."

Cons
Its difficult to send multiple text
We have create snippet and then send it
I used to say "a pain to edit later," but they fixed that: if you edit what you've entered in the geekbot channel, your corrections immediately show up in the group channel
Finding really difficult to fault this software
If I forget to post a response for a check-in and decide to do that the next day before the check-in time, I will not be prompted for a response."
