The 848 Group visited Copenhagen at the end of February 2013 to attend a two day course in order to become a Podio preferred partner. Podio is an online work platform with a new take on how everyday work gets done. Podio is a flexible platform which allows its users to control their own work tools, instead of users working around the tools themselves. It is up to the organisation on how they structure their projects, teams and workflows through the creation of workspaces and sharing with the relevant people.

Podio allows you to decide how to structure, create, and present content and information through the use of free applications, which can either be taken straight from Podio’s app market or through the use of the app builder. The app builder allows you to specify exactly the information you wish to record via a simple drag-and-drop interface, allowing you to create apps specific to your business requirements. All of these apps can be linked together through the use of app referencing for a more refined user experience, allowing you to keep all your processes connected. Making good use of Podio allows you to always know what is happening in your organisation and can help reduce heavy use of email, keeping discussions together in a much more structured way.
Podio is primarily a cloud web-based service but also has brilliant apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices which allow you to take advantage of the service from anywhere. Podio’s mobile interface is very flexible and provides most of the features available on the web browser interface. This can help you by reducing the need for personal computers if it suits your business needs. Should you wish to make use of Podio, The 848 Group can help you make the most out of Podio’s features and capabilities by working with you to ascertain whether it is suitable for your business. Due to Podio’s flexibility and low cost, there is a very high chance you could make good use of Podio for yourself.
At 848, we primarily use Podio as our internal communication and project coordination facility, making use of its Employee Network to manage internal communications, along with using custom applications for project work. We utilise Podio to keep our internal processes well-structured and concise, allowing us to provide customers with the best possible service. The tasks system within Podio allows us to keep track of the work we need to undertake without the need to sift through all our emails to find the relevant information. Podio has strong integrations with other major providers such as Google Apps and Box, which we have linked with Podio to take advantage of each system. As a re-seller of a number of major products, we can custom-build a solution that works for your business, recommending and utilising the systems that will best suit your needs.
