Great way for ecommerce companies to receive money  starstarstarstarstar  2018-10-10

 Pros

Found this an extremely useful tool while collecting online payments from customers. Also due to how widespread it is, very useful while paying suppliers for services rendered.

 Cons

Getting used to all the tools takes some time. Also doesnt have a great set-up for allowing multiple complex levels of access which can be given based on seniority to the finance team for access.

Microsoft Word Reviews
Word processing software

Best word processing tool  starstarstarstarstar  2018-10-10

 Pros

Best word processing tool has great features to format documents easily. Saving as PDF is a great new feature as you dont need to have a PDF Printer/converter tool installed seperately.

 Cons

Inserting pictures and aligning them with text is cumbersome. Table formatting is not in sync with entire document formatting.

A real-time, cross-network, social media messaging service

Perfect way to keep updated on whats "trending"  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

With suspicion of media and more faith in social news this is a great way to stay updated with whats trending/people are talking about.

 Cons

Character restriction is slightly painful and took a while getting used to. Since are dealing with larger unknown audience come across trolls way too often

Asana Reviews
Shared task list for project management & collaboration

Great project tracking tool  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

Got introduced to this tool when having to monitor the tech team on next releases and having to provide input on which features need to be provided. Found this tool extremely easy to use and intuitive. The tech team had made a lot of customisations which they said helped make this a great product as well.

 Cons

Not made for quick changes as you need enter each sub task to make changes, this makes it hard to make large scale changes in 1 go. Calendar functionality doesnt allow a proper integration or is hard to figure out the integration.

Microsoft Office 365 Reviews
Cloud collaboration and file sharing application suite

Best tool for users to collaborate  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

Since its synced to MS Excel it is definitely the best tool. As all spreadsheet tools are compared to excel and all of them are lacking. Hence allowing collaboration with MS Excel is a huge plus adding further benefits to an extremely strong product (MS Excel)

 Cons

Unfortunately for Microsoft Gmail is prevalent across most places. Hence this creates resistance as people outside the workspace who are using gmail.com or gmail for work mail prefer to use google drive for sharing as opposed to Office 365.

Create, capture & access everyday notes on mobile devices

Nice way to ensure you dont lose notes when on the go  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

Extremely easy to locate notes, the sync feature works really well making sure you're always connected. Also great for collaboration when working with a group on certain tasks

 Cons

I think they try to push too much towards the paid version which is too expensive as the free version only allows syncing with limited devices.

Zoho CRM Reviews
Multichannel CRM for businesses of all sizes

One of the top CRM tools  starstarstarstarstar  2018-10-10

 Pros

Extremely easy to customise and integration with gmail is great. Being able to setup reminders as pop-ups/emails also makes sure things dont get missed. Also useful tagging team members to take on certain tasks.

 Cons

One of the biggest drawbacks is that you cant personalise settings such as I want reminders to be pop-ups not emails but it always goes back to default settings. While it is a real-time tool, an offline sync version would be great for usage in low covered internet locations.

Email and advertising marketing automation platform

Most popular free tool  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

Extremely easy to use and since usage is widespread easy to get assistance from people in the office. Free plan has a great number of functionalities.

 Cons

Limited templates is the biggest drawback of this product compared to its competitors and power users generally migrate to other programs such as sendgrid.

Google Analytics Reviews
Enterprise-class web analytics

Great tool to get useful Info  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-10-10

 Pros

Can get a lot of information on your fingertips. Helps smaller businesses which dont have a dedicated Business Intelligence Team. Google online support is quite helpful as well.

 Cons

Since it is such a powerful tool it takes a while to be able to understand each level of information in detail. However once the learning curve is complete it its extremely simple to use.

Facebook Reviews
Facebook (anonymous review)
Online social media & social networking service

Largest social network hence the greatest reach  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-09-15

 Pros

Extremely user friendly and a great way to connect with people who have only met a few times. Reminder for birthdays and generally storing memories as well as reconnecting with long lost friends means while I may not spend as much time on it anymore would keep going back to check my account status.

 Cons

Suggesting friends based on no common friends but Whatsapp conversations as well as the recent data leaks scandal have made me a little wary of continuous use.
