Review on Podio Features
Podio is integrated with chat, almost not available on other project management platforms. It will also show you active and non-active of your contacts. Files can be shared to your contacts through Dropbox, Ubuntu One, Box and Google Drive. It will take one step further for allowing users to set custom integrations.
It is more than a collaboration tool. It is customized on high level. Chat is integrated in it. it is not having time management tools. It will not be very much suitable for the users who want project management in deep.
