We are considering Odoo as a CRM/order management system. It is easy to use. We had a demo and we liked it.
Zoho is good because we can share it with the team. But it is a little too complicated for our needs. We are building an internal inventory. Most of our sales are B2B at this point.
MailChimp is really good to create newsletters even though I have not been using it a lot. We can aggregate potential users and customers in groups and send out specific emails. I use it to send out monthly updates. We are on the free tier.
We have Quickbooks Online. We connect it with Wagepoint to process payroll and eventually it will connect with Odoo. There are too many options for QuickBooks subscriptions, but overall it is perfectly okay. It takes some time to shop for the right features for your stage.
We use Wagepoint. It works perfectly for payroll and timesheet. We received a government grant from the National Science Foundation. As government contractors, we will need to have timesheets to provide accrual accounting system.
x.ai is perfect--it allows me to easily schedule meetings when I am trying to reach out to someone. It’s a personal assistant and it saves me a lot of time. It allows me also to choose the location of the meeting, for example, if it’s over the phone or Skype.
We are using Evernote for everything--we have the premium version. We created a separate notebook for each of our employees. It’s really good for note taking, but we cannot add a timeline for a specific task to be done.
I use the free version of Buffer. I am posting 3/4 times per day and it allows me to connect with Facebook and Twitter. I’m using Google Chrome so I have a Chrome icon for Buffer that allows me to post across channels.
