    Zoom

    Cloud video conferencing and simple online meetings

    Quite possibly the best video conferencing solution. This was an essential tool for our remote team and for sales calls.

    Basecamp

    Keeps people on the same page

    At that time there was no Trello & Asana and we had already tried the trial version of Basecamp and fell in love with its simplicity. We used to call it GroupHub :)

    Drift 2.0

    A scalable way to talk to your customers

    Duncan A ForbesFounder @ Cheesemix · Written
    Brings together natural messaging with users/prospects, plus the ability to automate numerous workflows (Playbooks) via email, target live site visitors/users with actionable and informative content, to using CTA's to easily integrate and run your Playbooks within your Website or App. Reducing the need for numerous forms too. With a fantastic support team and developer documentation, for extending your customers experiences when using LeadBots, to developing internal tools to increase productivity between your team members. Great for B2B and B2C. The more creative you are, with how you implement Drift or design your Bots. The sky's the limit.

  18. The best project management platform for G Suite. It's completely integrated and automated. The design is awesome, simpler and cheaper. Workep has everything, different work methodologies (Todolist, Kanban, and Gantt). The Gantt is the most powerful feature, teams, time tracker, etc.
