I wish our company permitted end users to upload their own pictures, but that is a policy decision and not a fault of the PB app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pingboard is now the assistant of mine while I have to look for somebody to call and / or email as all the contacts of mine are next to the image of yours. It is good to use a picture to search, as well as Pingboard combines these 2 components to make a good option to your organization's online business pattern as well as contact list. Apart from being in a position to get into this powerful info from anywhere, I like the comfort of that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I cannot recall what I do not love about Pingboard! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Huge as well as very simple organizational values. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The management flow in preparing a task is fantastic. Nevertheless, I truly like the simplicity of contacting as well as finding individuals on Pingboard. I have begun using a couple of extra functions and also have only added some more information to the profile of mine. There's nevertheless a great deal to find out, is not there!

What do you like best?

I have never eased so seamlessly into a new job as I have with Pingboard by my side. Pingboard has helped reduce the number of times I've needed to say, "Sorry, what was your name again?" to virtually zero. With so many working teams, many of them remote, it's helpful to have a sidekick remind you of names to faces before jumping into a meeting or attending an event. My favorite part is the division by location. I can easily jump to the group of people I need to re-familiarize myself with quickly! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The app includes name, photo, and title, but not department in the quick text underneath each photo. I can get this information by clicking on specific departments, but this takes more work if I know a person I'm thinking of, but do not recall their department. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's 100% worth it! I'm not privy to the costs of using Pingboard as I am only a user, but for organizations considering to add, I strongly recommend as it will significantly improve onboarding for your employees! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Greatest benefit is being able to address people directly and not relying on memory alone especially when there are too many people to keep track of every single one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to use the website and update information. Past websites I have used before have been lagging and sometimes hard to manage. With Pingboard, I have had no troubles updating my contact or work information or even my profile photo. Very happy with Pingboard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't honestly say anything that I dislike about the website. From what I've used so far, its very easy to use and easy to catch on. Almost all of the features are self explanatory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommend Pingboard, its very user friendly and very easy to update information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being a coach for a huge club, sometimes it is very hard to get in contact with other coaches from different parts of the club. With Pingboard, I was able to find and use the employee or staff directory to find coaches or staff members that I need to contact and send them an email or call or text them.

What do you like best?

Quick and Ease of use is by far the most important. It's basically the Google equivalent of contacts, which this company has tried a variety of options to try to facilitate but Pingboard is far better than the others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Even though it's quick, it could be quicker. The other thing I could thing of is adding some kind of "did you mean such and such". Also it's hard to determine who is in what group, so a better grouping system would be appreciated. One last feature would be to request that a user update their information. Say John has a bad phone number, you can just simply press a request update right on his page. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a wonderful tool, there doesn't seem to be anything better for what we use it for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Contacts, it has been a huge problem for this company, but with pingboard we have been able to drastically reduce the time in getting contact details. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I am able to identify employees and their positions/ role in real time. This is especially useful after having had a meeting or conversation with someone who I don't usually interact with but it gives me a better understanding of what role they play in the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about ping board is that the live organizational chart only automatically shows the heads of each department and I have to individually click through each one to identify where each employee is working and under what mentor or supervisor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if ou are someone that is considering using pingboard I would say go fot it! This tool is specially useful when your organization has over 500+ employees because it allows you to be on the loop of different teams and role changes. you will also be able to create stronger relationships Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving many problems on ping board, especially as it pertains to teams recognition. For example, if I recieve a calendar invite from an unkwown name, I can easily go to ping board and look up their name in order to have a better understanding of who they are and what team they are on.

Pingboard is an easy way to glance at the company as a whole and see where we are at in terms of headcount, out of office status and navigate departmental org charts. People can get up to speed quickly and figure out who they need to talk to or if others are out of office. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be awesome to have more integrations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I recently joined a company that use Pingboard, a product I hadn't heard of before. I found it immediately intuitive, and was able to navigate the company org chart with ease. This was a massive time saver and made my onboarding that much easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The "secondary" features such as the out of office functionality are a little lacking, and feel like second class citizens. Typically Pingboard is the last place I fill out my availability as I've normally already filled in existing tools such as Google calendar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pingboard is used as our Org Chart and company directory. Everyone is on Pingboard and I can quickly view the Org Chart to find someone in a particular department, location, role etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Pingboard is a great tool to help new employees out names to faces around the office. It also helps see where your team is at all times, whether working remotely or traveling. It's also a great way to celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At this point, there isn't much I dislike about the platform. It is a bit bare bones when it comes to set up instructions for a new user, but it's pretty self explanatory from there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's great as a simple staffing platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's easy to see where everyone is, whether in the office or working remote. Helps to identify departments as well and to get to know new coworkers. Also, my company as two other offices that we collaborate with, rarely meeting in person. It helps to foster a team mentality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We're able to see and interact with an updated org chart with all employees across the company, and filter by team or location. Employee profiles make it easy to connect a name with a photo, pull contact information quickly, see how long someone's been at the company and more. It's also a way to see which team members are out of the office, on vacation, on a business trip or working remotely. It's also helpful for new employees to get to know their coworkers, or to help coworkers in different offices connect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really like how user friendly it is. There are not many obstacles hindering the learning of this new technology, and once you pick it up it is incredibly useful. The chart design is also very 'modern.' Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only features that are there are charts and diagrams that we refer to occasionally I believe that there are additional things we can add in order to make it fully integrated into office life, such as chat rooms/conference calling one-click by clicking on the person's profile picture etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
