GlobiMail for Podio

Get your Email conversations into Podio

GlobiMail for Podio Overview

If you've been using Podio for any length of time, you've no doubt fallen in love with it. Podio's extreme flexibility gives it power beyond any other work management platform.

One missing business process that keeps coming up is integration with email. Yes, Podio is great to manage data, but customers like to use email. And although you can invite customers to Podio Workspaces and share individual Podio Items with them, most don't want to log into another system or learn another platform.

Enter GlobiMail to the rescue.

GlobiMail is a Podio add-on that allows you to get your email conversations into Podio automatically. And the best part is that you can keep using your normal Email Client - no need to change how you do things.

Once you hook up a Podio App to GlobiMail, a new comment will be placed with each Item giving you a link to click on to reply to that contact, or to compose a new message to that contact.

Such emails are automatically routed through the GlobiMail servers and email bodies are added to the relevant Podio Item as comments. Your customers simply reply to your email, and in turn you simply reply to theirs. Any email thread initiated this way will be captured “automagically”.

Each email comment added in Podio, additionally includes a link to allow you to easily reply to that specific message.

One of the exciting new features in GlobiMail lets you even see if / when your customer read your email. This is something you can't even do with regular email.

There is also a BCC Drop Box feature for each App, that lets you simply forward any out-of-context email to GlobiMail to be added to the correct Item.

We had a virus on our system that caused up to be blocked by spamhausse. We could not get our podio/globiflow emails out as we were using our own server to send emails via Globiflow. We started to use Globimail as a temporary alternative, however once we started using it we could not go back to the old way of sending emails. Globimail is able to track our emails and let us know if they got bounced, were delivered and even when they were opened.
It allows full traceability allowing us to follow up on quotes when we see whether the customer opens the email or not.

Pros

Traceability, Value, Ease of use,

Cons

Some emails tend to get trashed when they are delivered.

Transition to GlobiMail has been seamless, tools are easy to use and properly priced

Pros

We've tried some of the other plugins to get our GMail and Podio communicating together in the past but nothing has been flexible enough that it made sense to keep using after the trial/testing period. GlobiMail is exactly what we were looking for and was easy to dive in and start using. We were live within a week and it seems like every week that passes there is some new cool feature for us to start playing with and seeing how it can benefit us. The fact that there is a Podio workspace that serves as a hub for GlobiMail news and support is very convenient too. This team really knows how to make the most out of Podio as a SupportDesk/CRM system.

Cons

I would say that there have been a few times where I clicked "send" on the GlobiMail Browser-Based Email and the error message returned was not descriptive enough. There is a proper error log in the admin, but it would be nice to see the full error as the user too.

Keeps all correspondence regarding any given topic in one place on the Podio item. We use this to send out quotes, POs, Invoices, etc., so if there are questions, they are logged directly back to the originating Podio item.

Pros

Easy integration of email conversations with Podio items.

Cons

Setup can be a confusing, especially when trying to echo messages to primary email.

I think that in any work team it is very important to have a communication instantly and even more if you are away from it. Definitely the best software used so far.

Pros

What I really like is that it is no longer necessary to copy your emails to follow a conversation with your customers. It's as easy as chatting in a chat room, you do not miss anything. Everything is summarized in a single platform, on the one hand you can talk with your team and in another with your customers. In truth, everything is easier with this tool.
