Pros

Globiflow takes the foundation of Podio and adds a multitude of options to otherwise restrictive system. Easy low code input allows users to formulate calculations with some ease. Workflows to create new items or update items not in the same app becomes simplified and possible. The help tools are crucial to users that may not be incredibly well versed in code so that most technically savvy persons in our company can follow along and contribute to how these new implementations will need to work

Cons

There are still a lot of issues with the software even with this enhancement. It would be great if they would allow the users to see the charts and graphs that will be made as they manipulate the data sets that they want rather than having to go back into podio and create test data in order to see what the system is reading in your workflows. The issue with having to delay or wait to trigger another workflow is tedious and does not always work. With Podio and Citrix having maintenance issues it can become cumbersome to double check and verify that the workflows are actually working as they are supposed to. Especially since the more complex ones do not happen in real time.

GlobiFlow can run your business for you

Used Daily for 1+ year

Pros

Globiflow can change the way you manage your time and your business. Automating simple tasks such as emails and reminders is almost comically easy using GlobiFlow. An example: We use Globiflow to review driving certifications (we have over 200 drivers on staff). If a driver has a cert expiring, we send them reminder emails multiple months in advance. They then can submit their new cert through a webform, and Globiflow updates all of their information. This used to be done manually. Overall, Globiflow has saved us 100s of hours through workflows such as this.

Cons

Actual Globiflow-provided customer support is limited (although the user-run forum is plenty helpful with many active members). Knowledge of PHP is necessary for more advanced flows. PHP itself is a bit of a silly coding language, though nowhere near as terrible as folks say it is.

Globiflow is critical for us to manage the literally thousands of pages of QC documents we deal with

Pros

Time/date based triggers have enabled us to automatically send email renewal requests to vendors when documents are expiring. We are an SQF, organic, gluten-free, vegan, Non-GMO, and kosher food processor. We literally manage thousands of pages of documents every to comply with all of our various certifications. Prior to Globiflow, we were doing this manually using excel which was the mess you would expect. Globiflow has enabled us to scale our business much more efficiently.

Cons

Globiflow used to be a stand-alone software program that was a lot less expensive than it is now that Podio requires upgraded licenses to access program.

The must have add-on for Podio

Used Daily for 2+ years

Just like Podio is easy ...the Globiflow is the right add-on (included in Premium Podio) to trigger what should be done behind the scene...

Pros

The extensive library of building blocks makes it very easy to start with building your own Podio Automation.

Cons

Only when flows getting rather complicated editing in the graphical way seems not so easy but maybe that is the moment to build more separate modules.

Podio is great, but for really automating your processes, Globiflow is a necessity. I use it for daily reports, mail merges, communications with constituents and project tracking.

Pros

Flexible, great user community, grows with you.

Cons

Takes getting used to the way it works but once you learn you can set up sophistication systems.

GlobiFlow is a necessary add-on. Don't use Podio without it!

Pros

Automation! Automation! Automation! This tool is a key to efficiency and has helped our business remain that way. Hours of work saved because of the things GlobiFlow has done and can do for us.

Cons

The interface is not the most user friendly. Building "flows" is also very complex and could probably be simplified to make them easier to make.

If you have Podio, you need to have GlobiFlow.

Pros

They give a wonderful User Experience(UX). They also have a wonderful support team, who meets with every query pit forward. They respond to your issues quickly and supplement with extra notes through screenshots etc. They integrate very well with Podio. Though they coast a price, a complete justice to that sum is shown by the application.

Cons

There is a lot to learn and understand if you wish to completely utilize every feature. Thus, it can be time-consuming. This is definitely not an option for beginners. Since there is a lot to do about coding, the chances of errors are high.

If your CRM is based on Podio, then you need globiflow to automate. Globiflow will elevate your CRM to another level and create so many openings and combinations on podio that it can help your business flourish. It has helped our company in tremendous way.

Pros

Globiflow adds much more functionality to Podio. Better than the built-in Workflows in Podio. Love the ability to generate automatic email with attached PDF.

Cons

Still new to this software, so it will take a little time to learn all of the features. Some of the help descriptions on functions are not that helpful.
