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

Hive reviews

Hive has made communication between our company's team easy. Now, we don't have to constantly call each other, have follow-up meetings, and walk into each other's offices. We can simply log into Hive and see who is doing what. We know when things are due and what needs to be done next. Because of Hive communication is easy so we can focus on getting jobs done for clients and getting them done on time.

- Sadie P. Media and Marketing Manager

Timely response to chat logs. It would be a great product if the e-mail integration actually added value to ones workflow.

- Jeff C. Sales Operations

Time tracking needs some work, but that is eclipsed by the wonders of version control and mark up of assets prior to approval.

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."

Hive

Pros
I love it because it makes my work easier
Creating and assigning tasks is easy and fast
Hive does a great job connecting all the pieces needed for a project in one place
It helps keep everyone on the same page and connects them to the resources, links, comments, and next steps
It's great to have a centralized space to manage all the company projects and view them in a single, customizable timeline
It's easy to amend as things inevitably shift
Hive has been a great help managing sales orders, manufacturing processes, quality inspections right down to shipments."

Cons
That renders HIVE e-mail integration about useless if you get a lot of e-mails with attachments
For me Hive is a no go for that reason
Notifications or follow up requests can get lost after read and can be difficult to find
The chat constantly messed up and either didn't show messages or just didn't notify me
Also, i have noticed that when people send images on chats or groups they never load, so i have to close the software down and reload it to be able to see them, which is a pain."
