What SaaS products does your small business or start up use that you couldn't live without?

My company uses Mailchimp, Google Analytics, and a few others. I'm curious what other companies are using to make their lives easier.

    Slack

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Slack is a team communication tool, which will also allow to integrate Services We Already Use.

    We can't imagine our internal communication without Slack. On top of that, we use the tools like https://trello.com for task management, https://heapanalytics.com, https://www.hotjar.com/, and Google Analytics for different sorts of analyses, https://stripe.com/ and https://recurly.com/ for managing payments, and we also use our very own https://brand24.com for media monitoring.

    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Naman BhutaniSales Specialist · Written
    I've been using Trello for almost 2 years now, I never had to micro-manage things manually. Trello does it all for me. It's an amazing project management tool which also lets me integrate with a lot of other services like Slack, etc to automate a lot of stuff and make it more useful, everyday. Hope it helps. :)

    Tried both Asana and Trello. Asana fit our needs better at the time, but both are fantastic project tracking services.

    OneSignal is a great tool for push notifications! And, did you know that they're free for a lifetime for any number of subscribers? Mind it, they collect your data though.

    Grow

    Simple BI dashboards for small and medium businesses

    Rob SkidmoreSoftware Developer at Grow.com · Written
    Just what is says in the tagline, BI without the overhead and exorbitant cost. An easy way to track everything that's going on in your business. I'm a little biased because I work there now. But I know people who used it and my previous company had looked into using it before I left. :-)

    Keepin' it real here. We live and die by Google's Suite. However, we're constantly trying to refine our workflows and keep it lean without taking on too much technical/workflow debt. We focus more on organizational maturity through ideologies and delivery models and the tools we put into place streamline those processes. Management is agiler in our approaches whereas our labor force is locked into specific stacks + SOPs that are vetted. Love all the suggestions!
