Hipmunk for Travel
Organizing travel for yourself can be a hassle. But organizing travel for two in-house and three remote workers? Forget about it. That is, unless you use Hipmunk. Like many other sites, Hipmunk advertises comparing flight and hotel deals from multiple sources. However, Hipmunk’s easy to use interface allows you to not only compare flight prices (and layover lengths), but also see exactly where the hotel you booked is.
You can also buy packages using Hipmunk, meaning that your company’s trip will be put on one easy transaction. Best of all, you can save your travel searches and access them later, so you can make sure to get written approval from your boss before booking the flights.
There’s a good reason Asana remains one of the most popular productivity and project management tools out there — it’s intuitive, easy to use, and beginner friendly. Asana allows you to organize tasks by project, and break them down into sub-tasks with assigned users, deadlines, and associated notes. With flexible view options including a calendar view, it’s a great all-rounder for productivity and task management.
King of office chat, Slack is a communication tool that allows you to send direct messages to individual colleagues or to converse informally in groups called channels. Channels can be organized around teams, projects, topics or all three.
Google Docs for File Sharing
Google continues to impress with the Google Drive, a cloud storage center that can store virtually any file type. The best part? You can invite team members to collaborate on documents and see their changes in real time. No more waiting a day and a half for a file.
With Google Drive, you can work together to make the company more productive. Google Drive is also free, but more storage is included in the Google Apps for Business price.
While most chat and communication tools are built to reduce email and get people outside of email, that’s not always helpful. For teams that need to communicate with people outside their internal organization (clients for example), then integrating with email is a big plus. Fleep lets everyone choose their preference, whether that’s their inbox or the Fleep app, and integrates all communications.
Google Hangouts for Business
Being the tech giant it is, one would expect Google to have the business market cornered. With Google Hangouts for Business, it definitely does. Like Skype, there is a free version of Google Hangouts, but it has some limitations. For example, you can only videoconference between two screens. With the Business upgrade, which costs five dollars per month per user, you can have unlimited videoconferences between unlimited amount of screens. That also includes screen sharing, so any presentation you give doesn’t have to be completely in-house.
Has your company launched a new product? Google Hangouts for Business takes care of that too. By holding a public hangout, you can share your product with industry leaders and other interested parties. Plus, the video can automatically upload to your YouTube account, making new product announcements a breeze.
This hugely popular video conferencing tool is one of the best places to start if you want to make arranging and hosting virtual meetings easier. Zoom has become a household name, thanks to how easy, affordable, and reliable it is. Not only is setting up meetings a breeze, but it’s easy to record from the platform — so you don’t have to spend the meeting taking down notes.
TravelPerk is built for booking and managing business travel. Aggregating all the flight and hotel options you can find on Google and delivering that inventory alongside business-critical features like travel policy limits for self-booking and spend reporting, TravelPerk is a no brainer. And did we mention the 24/7 trip support? It’s amazing. Business travelers will thank you for it.
Insightly for Customer Relationship Management
No matter if you’re a B2B or B2C business, you will have clients. Keeping track of them all can seem like an insurmountable task. Luckily, Insightly, a customer relationship management (or CRM) system makes the process easy. Like most CRMs, Insightly organizes all of your clients and helps you manage projects.
But Insightly also does a lot more.
For one, it detects all of the social media accounts associated with your client’s email address. It also has a lot of useful integrations to applications like Evernote and Dropbox. With Insightly, all your information is in one place, making running your business a complete breeze.
If you need something more organized for a larger company, GoToMeeting could be an ideal option for virtual meetings and webinars. This enterprise software is packed with useful features and admin tools, like an admin dashboard that lets you oversee and control user access. It also features intuitive voice commands, which is great for team members and clients joining you on the move from their mobile device.
As a survey tool, Typeform can be used for so many different things, including getting feedback on a recent event, asking for lunch orders, or discovering what type of furniture your team would like to have in the new lounge. But one of the best uses of Typeform is event planning.
