Slack has been working out great. We use it differently than most companies because we use it more to stay on top of our technical structure (e.g. technical issue and bug tracking, FSH requests to deploy code) than for group chats. We’re still at the stage where email and text messaging work well for internal communication. I would recommend them because I don’t think anyone else lets you do what they allow your team to do.
We use Medium and it’s working out well. The interface is prettier more than it is usable, and it’s not necessarily a SaaS company. But it does what we need it to do; we use it mainly for exposure.
I’m pretty happy with Stripe. We chose Stripe over others mostly because of the cleanliness of their API and because it is very developer friendly. We have some international users and it doesn’t work very well internationally. The only problem I have with Stripe is that our users build apps through Bubble and therefore use Stripe themselves. For us personally, we are a US company so it doesn’t matter. But, we have some customers in India. Because we have international customers, if we were to choose all over again, I would have probably gone with Braintree. Braintree gets you PayPal, which works well everywhere.
The only problem with inDinero is the price; it’s expensive. But it replaces having to hire an accountant and that’s really good. Their design is very professional and visually pleasing. What we pay for is not only the software, but also the staff. Their customer support team is very professional. I would recommend them, in spite of the high price.
Bubble is a new way to program web apps without code. Our own website is built on Bubble and we use our product ourselves.
We use Pingdom for website reliability. It’s more for users to see our website reliably; we don’t really use it for ourselves. It is great for what it is supposed to do.
We use GitHub a ton, just like everyone in software. It’s good for what it’s supposed to be.
