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

Spike reviews

Spike makes inbox zero nearly effortless, with easy mass archive and trash and built-in unsubscribe and blocking. Organizing by conversation participants and presenting the thread like a chat conversation fixes the problem I've had with virtually every other email client where you can't tell which direction the conversation is going or where the newest message is. It just makes sense.

Everything works: unified inbox, signature customization, hot keys, thread view for emails, and Google contacts integration. Making email for my business impossibly simple and fast.

- Chad M. Insurance Producer

My favorite part is that I don't spend half my day cleaning up my inbox and Imreally love the display contact feature that not only lets you see name and photo of sender but all previous emails in the side panel too! I've been trying out others but Spike leave the rest behind

Karbon reviews

The biggest downside I have found is when updating a template the templates should automatically be updated when a new version is created as if a job is on annual renewal if the previous job has not been reset the new one created is based on the last one made instead of the new updated template. I would like the option for when editing the template if there was an option for updating all existing or to update all future job creations that would be the biggest improvement.

Being able to create work, create tasks under the work, and assign to staff. Everyone that's assigned to the work can track the status of the work and reassign when needed to manage people's workload. We can also create budget time for the work/task/assignment and log actual time to better manage team capacity and expectations. I also like the comment features where we can tag a certain team member and comment on a task, note, and email message. It is a great tool to eliminate additional email messages as well as keep the communications in one place.

- Ellie Z.

The thing I like best about Karbon is the capabilities that go beyond just an email platform like Outlook - the ability to create "works" for a whole team to track their time against, with organizational capabilities that allow you to manage your work day, week, month, which comes in handy when trying to plan for the future as well as grow your company. I like the ability to consolidate all of your teammates's emails with a contact so you can also get caught up on the email threads without having to bother teammates to get the TLDR, which could also get misconstrued through the game of "telephone".

Pros & cons

Spike

Pros
I really like the clear and clean interface, I love simple and non-confusing things
It has everything it takes to get into the toolbox of marketing.The way Spike sorts emails is genius
It turned my inbox into a chat-like experience, where emails are grouped by people and not threads/topics - so it actually feels like I'm using a IM and not an outdated email client.the ability to have it setup on multiple devices so you have access to the information when you need it
Being able to "PIN" items for quicker access
also the ability of finding any attachment based on a specific contact.

Cons
Some of the more advanced features still need some work
I'd love to see tagging in notes (so collaboration would be smoother), or the option to add a call link into an invite directly (like in Google Calendar).having the ability to use the "REPLY ALL" being more accessible and not have to hunt for it.Wish there was a way to click on a calendar date in an email and have it added to the Spike Calendar
Smart email folders might also be useful for Spike.

Karbon

Pros
The system syncs really well
They are constantly developing links and making the product better
The ability to view the work and to-do's.

Cons
It doesn't have a grammar check
Should add more features
Should be able to allow for more email addresses to be included in client tasks.
