As an investor and entrepreneur, I've seen dozens of companies constantly doing the same manual processes to use data to run their operations. Extracting it, combining it, crunching it. Actiondesk can automate that and as such is addressing a strong need in the market! Looking forward to hearing more feedback from their users.

Pros:

Addresses a real problem

Cons:

Number of integrations

How do I know which product is the best among the ones listed here? https://justchainsaw.com/best-ch...

At first, Actiondesk's interface is a bit confusing. once you understand how it works, the power it gives you to manipulate your data, and set automations is unrivaled.

Pros:

Huge time saver.

Cons:

Take a few minutes to understand how things work

As many companies, we have very limited resources when it comes to software engineering. There are many scripts that were in our roadmap for a while but were never getting done. Thanks to Actiondesk, we were able to build the right automations for a fraction of the cost, while letting our technical team focus on the core of our product.

Pros:

Saves development cost, easy and light to use

Cons:

Lack of real time

We are just setting things up in terms of tools stack and Actiondesk will come in handy to fill some holes between our different systems. Really like that it relies on an excel like interface.

Pros:

Short learning curve, productivity

Cons:

number of integrations, although good enough as of today

Jonathan's previous experiences have met a real need. Saving time will be very important for users. Many interesting articles in the Actiondesk blog ( https://blog.actiondesk.io )!

Pros:

I really appreciate the user-friendly interface and the step-by-step guidance. It's an easy-to-use and powerful product!

Cons:

Through the integration of many interfaces in 2019 ...

We use Actiondesk to send ourselves alerts when something goes wrong with a customer: late orders, refund pending, etc. This has proven to be very useful. Setting up automations requires a bit of a learning curve but once you got the hang of it, it's super fast!

Pros:

Frequent alerts to spot and action on business problems

Cons:

You have to make the effort of understanding how it works first

Even though it's still a beta, Actiondesk is quite easy to use when you already know how to use Excel. It reproduces its main features such as Vlookup, Pivot table, and use of functions like if, and, or, etc. It's great because you can really adapt your automations to your needs and to the specificities of your business.

Pros:

Create links between your tools

Cons:

Super flexible and powerful

Helping you getting data science and operations to the next level’ more efficiently

Pros:

Excellent team and great product!

Cons:

Integration

Excited to get to know the product better and see how I can help out early stage founders manage their data with it.

Pros:

Often when founders ask me for help with their data, it's for things exactly like the ones Actiondesk is made to address.

Cons:

As they state, it's as if Zapier + Google Sheets had a child. I could imagine Zapier developing features that mimic Actiondesk's.

Actiondesk is an awesome tool to automate various manual tasks. Automate manual excel reports, gather data in various tools and have one source of truth.

Pros:

Ease of use of Zapier, power of Excel

Cons:

None

None

Pros:

Simple to use, easy to understand. A good product that can change the market and help people using data in a better way.

Cons:

None
