Pros: Useful during reunions (we use wall projector screen) of our Circle. I enjoy to recap all tensions and actions to solve it by an automatic e-mail.

Cons: No really problems, just a necessary time to learn how to use it. I would add that it could be interesting to have a look to other Circles and including in it tensions for them while it appears to be tensions not from our Circle.

Overall: Efficiency, organization, a tool which allow to never forget a tension, and, overall, which force the the Role or the Circle to anticipate or adopt a solution.

Very helpful and useful tool

Pros: The simplicity and ease of use of the tool is outstanding. Connection between circles and roles and metrics is great to understand the interdependence between all three items within holacracy.

Cons: would love to couple the roles and circles to P&L statement and effect of each role to the outcome of this P&L

Overall: This tool helped us grow as a organisation from a level 1 to a level 2 within the holocracy maturity.

Easy to use with a good visual for Holacracy or Teal.

Pros: easy to use . Has a build-in knowledge base for Holacracy terminology, explanations of the meeting , process roles and much more. Very usefull for the beginners.

Also the editor has demonstrated a open minded philosophy to improve his software. Not a closed system such as Glassfrog. We did a comparison of the two softwares and choose Holaspirit. we use the french version.

Cons: The overall view of the main circle and sub-circle can be confusing if you are not familiar . When you are in a meeting if you look for a specific role of another circle, you get out of the meeting and have to go back after.

Pros: holaSpirit has all key functionality needed to run Holacracy in an organisation.
It is very easy to use, no training needed.
It is continuously enhanced with new functionalities. The developers listen to the clients/users

Cons: Holacracy is still a hierarchy (nested circles/roles, 1:n), and quite rigid.
What we need are selforganised networks, n:n, flexible, agile.
There are other frameworks like Sociocracy 3.0 which have rhis flexibility.
Would be super cool to be able to map n:n networks with holaSpirit

Overall: It helpes to setup and run a holacracy organisation

Pros: The way it allows everyone to follow all the meetings from their own computer and to immediately create actions and tensions to solve problems

Cons: When you put a task discussed in the checklist with for instance, weekly periodicity, the task to be accomplished is to be completed on a tuesday and we decide to have a tactical meeting on mondays we'll never know if that task will be completed that week. It woulb be helpfull to especify delivery dates for tasks, projects and all activities.

Overall: More efficiency and productivity on tactical meetings

Pros: Easy to use! Find function work without leave the current function (ie tactical meeting, governance meeting). Good minute after meetings. Good integration with appear.it

Pros: Easy to use, fast, reliable - provides great guidance to implement Holacracy. Extremenly responsive support team. Public Trello roadmap. Philippe and his team listen to customers and implemented SAML-SSO on very short notice.

Cons: Few point-to-point integrations rather than frameworks (Zappier, Flow, IFTT), unable to link to individual policies.

Overall: Fast, reliable and easy to use software to support our implementation of Holacracy.

Pros: Easy to use and functional UI. We've used holaSpirit for ourselves and for several client projects. We've never had to offer any training. People just get it. The customer support is phenomenal!

Cons: The UI could use a facelift. Some oft the workflows feel a bit akward. Sometimes it takes several clicks to get something done.

Overall: Solid implementation of the Holacracy rules and very valuable support for any Holacracy practice.

It serves the purpose of Holocracy quite nicely

Pros: It cover what we needed to support our Holacracy implementation. The support team is doing an amazing job supporting us when needed. As a customer we are feeling that the development them is listening to us when features are requested.

Cons: Something certain features are not intuitive at first use, example the badge support. But the documentation is there to understand how to use the feature.

Pros: holaSpirit is easy to use. The user interface is very clear. There is a very useful online documentation.

Cons: We used to implement Holacracy in our company with an other solution. Since we swithed to holaSpirit, we haven't got anymore difficulties to make Holacracy alive in our organization... So, in fact, I haven't got any weak point to underline here.

Overall: Many benefits !

Holaspirit is the product of my choice for implementing holacracy in two! organisations.

Pros: Ease of use is key for implementing holacracy, because keeping track of all the roles in an organization can be tedious. If it isn't easy to do so, it won't happen. And holaspirit does a great and ever improving job in doing so.

It has a great and responsive support team who are interested in improving the software.

All important aspects of holacracy are built into this product. Having integrations for your projects and actions is a nice addon, but not really necessary, especially for smaller organizations, since it is already handled well by holaspirit.

The developers keep a transparent roadmap in form of a public Trello board, where you can see if your favorite feature will be implemented soon.

Cons: The two integrations (Jira and Trello) for externalizing tasks are kept too simple for my tase. They work, but could be improved upon. (Automatic member assignment for projects in Trello for example. Integration for tasks as well as projects, etc. But from what I know about the team, there will surely be improvements in the future)

Overall: Transparency, clarity and self organization in two organisations by implementing holacracy using this software. One medium sized (approx. 50 people) software development company and even a school.

Our association is organised via holaSpirit and we love it!

Pros: Self-organisation means structure. Holacracy with Holaspirit is our way to do it and document it, and to make it transparent to anyone who needs to know about it, and this is a big advantage!
The team is reactive for both support and feature request. The backlog, KB, information is public which is fully aligned with transparency policy and I really appreciate it.

Cons: I would love to have some video tutorials.
I would like an office visual export of a picture of the circles at each level to satisfy my appetite for historical snapshots...

Overall: Clarity, speed of organising ourselves, efficiency, fun.

Holaspirit help us daily to get a full vision of our projects and responsibilities...

Pros: Holaspirit is an application that help human in there organisation to accomplish their due and task with a deep respect of the Holacracy constitution. It's really user friendly, so you don't even need documentation and anyone of your organisation can take in hand its use by himself. It's help the users to apply Holacracy during meetings (tactical and gouvernance). It gives clarity to users to take action together and to distribut their responsabilties. It has been a real change in our organisation since we use Holaspirit.
On top of that, the developpers and customer team are really helpful, fast and really cool ! :)
There is a before and after Holaspirit...

Cons: Unfortunatly, the way to manage projects is not the best way to do. In fact, it's missing tools like tags, comments, dropbox attachment file...etc But Holaspirit's team gave a multitude way to synchronise Holaspirit with many application or Webhooks. Like that you are free to manage your project as you like...

Pros: The interface is clean, intuitive and you are seamlessly guided along the Holacracy process. The team is constantly adding new features and replies to questions get answered really quickly.

Cons: Nothing that comes to mind. The software is young so there may be a couple of bugs but these are very minor.

Pros: - Public roadmap provides a great insight into what to expect when
- New features are implemented regularly in a short amount of time

Pros: holaspirit is complete with many in-app help. The circles view is very useful for employees to discover the organization structure not by its hierarchy side but by its jobs organization and interactions. The meeting view is also very useful for teams to be synchronized.

Cons: Need just few user interface minor improvements to be the perfect app.
For instance make the main side bar much more user-centric or increase the size of the smallest texts at a few places.

Pros: I've been engaged in organizational transformation for 30+ years. While many great achievements have been accomplished there has always been something missing to enable the organization to continue to produce breakthrough results.

The missing piece in all transformation efforts originating from outside intervention, and most internally generated initiatives as well, is an information system specifically designed to enable continuing transformation. This is mainly due to lack of system with can show results as they are being produced and not merely numbers after the fact.

A significant transformation of an enterprise is a complex process - not a linear one. There is no other platform that I've seen where complex activity can be managed and coordinated. holaSpirit allows display of all ongoing transformational activity, from initial intentions to coordination of activity across normal lines to the measurement of results. The most amazing and useful part of this is that everything can be viewed by all members of the enterprise, while information that needs to be restricted for confidentiality reasons can be part of the system as well.

This is the platform that every transformational initiative of any significant scale requires. I predict this will alter an organizational life forever. It has already started to give me access to needed info.

Cons: Not quite as flexible and adaptive as I'd like but the best that is out there so far. Not easy to learn.
