Pros: Geekbot is extremely easy to set up, you can get from 0 to async stand up in about 10 minutes. The way that it goes about getting team members updates and then posts them is also very seamless and helps remote teams on different schedules stay up to date on what other team members are doing.

Cons: For what the software does the yearly rate seems a bit steep. I also wish there were more options with respect to triggering the stand up.

Pros: How it fits around my day and my needs in a very convenient way. You can use it to ask the core questions that are important to your company when the users are ready to answer it. They don't have to stop what they are doing to attend an hour long meeting where they speak for 2 minutes about what they have done.

Cons: I did not like the fact that you couldn't change the geekboto logo, we would have liked to customise it with our own mascot or logo.

Overall: Helped open up communications across our team

Pros: Automatic. It takes care of sending the messages so that I can sleep.

Overall: I use Geekbot with my team on a daily basis and it has made my life so much better. I still do work in following up with my team and keeping track of what they're doing but now I can be more flexible about when I follow up. I use to have 3 different standups for a 6 person team. They ranged from 8 in the morning to 11 at night. It was difficult to get everyone on the same call. This has definitely made our lives better and allowed us to still keep track of what we're doing.

Recommendations to other buyers: I suggest you use the feature to send a message at a time based on the person's time zone. That helps a lot.
