    Real-time team messenger tool

    Has a great to-do and notes tool integrated. That, along with the Google Drive and Github integrations solves for most of the collaboration, task management issues I face.

    A must use. Been a huge boost for my team at cutting down on inbox clutter/email jail. Also helps us stay connected as we shift between two offices and communicate with remote team members.

    Crazy how Slack seemed to have come out of nowhere and become a go-to tool for team communication. It definitely happened for a reason though! They've really mastered chat imo and they continue to add great features and integrations.

    It's a good collaboration tool where you can assign tasks as well. It's acquired by Atlassian now.

    I love Trello and use it for project management and as a personal to-do list. It's super simple but I find that it's better to keep project management tools simple for most effective use.

    Best for collaborative project management and roadmapping. And it's free also :)

    Pavan Sethi15building things. · Written
    There are so many video conferencing tools these days but Zoom really stands out because of its ease of use (which is super important because we all know how annoying it is when you're having technical issues during a meeting).
    Jonathan BentzCreator of Leads, Sales, and Traffic · Written
    The quality and ease of video conferencing with this tool surpasses almost every other solution on the market. Quickly has become a must use for me and my team.

    We use Samepage and couldn't live without it. It has all of the collaboration tools we need in one place: * team chat * video conferencing * real-time document editing * file sharing * task management * shared calendars We're a design agency.

    I will suggest Contus Fly, It is a solution to build a real-time chat app in android & iOS. It helps enterprises overcome the shortcomings of security, user moderation, scalability as in common chat apps with an enterprise-grade chat app of their own.

    Recorded and transcribed calls for team collaboration

    Antony BearparkGraphic and Web Designer · Written
    Antony Bearpark made this product
    Our team uses to send and receive messages and files. We have our clients on too who each have their own Organization that they can invite specific members too to collaborate with, without having to switch accounts or platforms. Each of our team members are connected to the right companies which is all organised under one roof. Additionally, we record all our calls, so everyone can see what they need to do. The calls are automatically transcribed via the software and later on we can search through the messages to see what was said in the calls. It's pretty clever really!

    We did build this initially for our own use, but being able to replay calls I've had to check what the client said they wanted is so useful. Last week myself and a colleague were arguing over what one of our clients meant by a certain requirement, and when replaying the call we realised that we interpreted what he said completely differently! Very glad we could refer back to it so we could sort out our misunderstandings between ourselves instead of asking our client again.

    Dropbox Paper

    Collaboration tool built for teams

    Ben HaleySelf Employed · Written
    Dropbox Paper is a must for exceptionally easy writing collaboration without the fuss. When I'm working with clients, other freelancers, or whoever, adding them to a document is as easy as typing their email address directly into the document. It saves me a lot of time fussing around with inviting, permissions, and text-editing and it has all of the essentials for quick-team management built in. It's been a real game changer for my business!
