I looked at a few others, but Zoho seems to be more geared to startups--that is why we decided to adopt it. It’s still an old school accounting software with inventory and receivables.
At WeFind, we work with consumer brands by looking for candidates in their user base. We found out that when you target the user base, the engagement is definitely higher, and we are able to find candidates that are not actively looking or on LinkedIn. It is a double win because the users are also really happy to hear about jobs.
We used Upwork to hire contractors, developers, and operations people. It’s really good for freelance work, but you need to be really stringent in your hiring process because you have to be able to verify that they have the skills that they claim to have. If you want to hire a freelancer quickly, it’s the best. It’s amazing what you can do with freelancers. Upwork helps manage them by taking screenshots of their screen every ten minutes to make sure that they are doing what they say they are.
We use JIRA for development. It’s a great enterprise-focused tool--we have it connected with everything.
Trello is very helpful, but could be more integrated into other tools. It’s a great strategic tool. I like the fact that you cannot provide too many details on the cards: as a result, it is more organized and keeps things streamlined.
