Slack is a great way to reduce email clutter. We are able to have different channels for different departments, making it easy to organize conversations.
Skype is especially helpful when speaking with partners outside of the U.S. In a digital era, there is still nothing that competes with a face-to-face conversation, and Skype gets you one step closer.
We use Google Drive for the documents that we create. The suggesting function is especially helpful to make sure that multiple people can share their revisions while still keeping the original content.
inDinero is an automated and transparent online system for accounting. Whenever you receive a bill or invoice, all you have to do is send it to the inDinero team to have it processed. After that, you are a click away from paying your bill. The system not only organizes your billing, but it also reminds you when bills are due. Our employees are fans as well, as there is an intuitive online form that is used for company reimbursements. Granted, there have been some reporting issues and other smaller obstacles, but overall we have had a positive experience using it.
