Some are frustrated with Podium
“A complete joke, avoid”
Promises made for services they do not have. Zero onboarding assistance. Paid for 2 locations but only acessing one. Changing terms and conditions after agreemnt then locking out access but still charging fees. CUSTOMER SERVICE WORSE THAN COMCAST.
“Customer service is awful – would not recommend podium”
Podium has the worst customer service I have ever experienced.
The tool is inferior to other companies out there.
The service is a complete nightmare. I would NEVER recommend podium to anyone.
“No support, unfinished overpriced software.”
Overpriced, undersupported under developed, bad terms of agreement.
Undertrained unresponsive staff. I would absolutely not recommend podium to any small business of under 10 employees
