Pobuca Connect Overview

What is Pobuca Connect?

Pobuca Connect is a cloud app for managing business contacts. Store all your business contacts in one unified company address book and find fast and easy any contact detail you need. Learn more: https://connect.pobuca.com

There are 3 productivity pains when you try to communicate in work:

1st: Find the contact information
2nd: Pick a communication channel (phone call, email)
3rd: Manage to reach the business contact

To see where your company stands, you can take the 5 questions challenge:

-Can you access all your business contacts at once, co-workers or external?
-Can you access all your business contacts on any device?
-Is there a process or a tool for a new hire to access all your organisation’s contacts?
-Do you feel that there is a higher need to keep on wasting time to update the contact info
individually?
- How much time is it lost trying to update your contacts database manually?

Finally yet importantly, 62% of business people feel that they are losing more time than they
should looking for contact information.

Pobuca Bot is a virtual assistant that facilitates business communication, as it stores contact info
of all your organization connections and automates the communication process with them.

Pobuca Bot imports, checks for updates and communicates with contacts using physical language with the user. Every business worker deserves an e-assistant in their communication and not only the executives!

Pobuca Connect stores contact information in the cloud and makes it accessible on any device and
interface! You easily import contacts from any source (CRM, Outlook, excel files) and share
them with your team.

Pobuca Connect pros & cons

Ease of communication is the overall after-taste!


Verified Reviewer

Initially Excited, Two Years Later, Disappointed

Our goal for Pobuca Connect is to use it to replace having contacts in three or four different places, to easily export a list of contacts once a year for a snail mailing, to replace MailChimp with this contact database and email marketing and to still sync with the contact database for our Office 365 email system. Currently, Pobuca Connect meets only one of these goals.

For now, we plan to keep trying to convince Pobuca to build an enterprise friendly business product for robust contact and relationship management, but if an alternative solution arises that solves all of these goals, we would migrate to that alternative service provider in a heart beat. My hope is that Pobuca Connect, with such great potential, is not left in the dust behind their competitors but intead rises to the challenge.

Ease of communication is the overall after-taste!

Pros

I access easily all company's phone numbers and I am able to see role desk number and mobile

Cons

It would nice if i could copy a contact to my phone contacts
or at least to have copy-paste functionality available

My hope is that Pobuca Connect, with such great potential, is not left in the dust behind their competitors but intead rises to the challenge.

Pros

Pubuca Connect does a great job of storing contact information and allowing multiple people to access the contacts under different permission levels. The ability to utilize custom fields is also incredibly useful. Having both Android and iPhone apps is very useful for us.

Cons

However, Pobuca Connect has a long ways to go before businesses can use this product alone for their contact management, email marketing, and customer relationship management. Let's start with the integration with Office 365. While it is very useful to be able to login to Pobuca using our Office 365 credentials, the integration doesn't go far enough. The Pobuca Outlook addon, for example, allows searching for contact information, but doesn't allow edits
For email marketing, many businesses can't afford to hire another web developer to design and maintain email templates that will be mobile friendly, tablet friendly, laptop and desktop friendly. Currently, the email marketing editor is simply a HTML WYSIWYG editor box. Having a robust and interactive email template designer similar to MailChimp and dynamic contact database fields for personalizing a mass email campaign would bring this email marketing tool in line with their top competitors.

Additionally, while Pobuca users can be segmented into different permission groups, there is currently no method, short of paying the developers several hundred dollars to create a report that can be easily generated showing the edits and changes in the contact database mapped to the specific user that made those changes. Currently, if one disgruntled employee had the permission to delete all contacts in the Pobuca database, they could and the rest of the users wouldn't know who performed the action, or how to undo the deletion operation.

Response from Pobuca

Hello,

Thank you for all your comments and the time you have spent for this review.
In Pobuca we appreciate our users' valuable feedback and keep improving our apps as per those.

Regarding the email campaigns feature, please bear in mind that the core field of Pobuca Connect is contacts management and not email marketing. Nevertheless, we provide the possibility to send emails to your contacts via email campaigns or mass emails. In case you want a more advanced email tool, you can integrate your Pobuca Connect contacts with other platforms through Zapier.
Regarding the user roles and permissions, you can assign 4 different kind of user roles to your co-workers for extra security and in case you don't want a user to edit/delete your contacts you can assign the Reviewer role.
You also have the possibility to review who has created and who has last modified a contact of your database.

Best regards,
The Pobuca team

Pros

Easy to use, no adds. good interface. better search option.

Cons

Nothing to say. All about to say that it needs to include theme so that user can enjoy their own theme.

All my contacts in one place with minimal hassle.

Pros

Easy to import contacts, and easy to arrange them by organisation. Fast customer service. The software will synch contacts across an organisation (although this is less useful to a lone worker like me). Nice little desktop app which helps you find what you need quickly (e.g. someone's number when you need to make a call). Great value for money as it's free for a single person like me; can't comment on the other pricing structures. Storage of data is GDPR compliant.

Cons

Having nicely imported all your data, you can't EXPORT it without upgrading to a paid plan, which is a bit annoying if you want to move to another contact manager.

Response from Pobuca

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback.
We offer a 15-day free trial of Pobuca Pro, if you want to check our product before paying though.
