As a small startup we are very conscious about picking up the tools we use to run the project. After suffering with a mess of using at the same time Trello , Slack , Telegram and what not, we arrived at a small set of tools that cover all our current needs. For product management, file sharing, team communication etc we chose Basecamp and couldn't be more happy about it. For Customer Support and Sales Intercom works amazingly well. We are using MailChimp for email marketing since over 4 years and it still covers all our needs. Then on payment side combination of Stripe and Octobat helps us to process all the payments and generate compliant invoices. On techie side we use Rollbar and GitLab (for both code and CI). For corporate email we picked G Suite. That all costs us in total around 300$ a month, which is quite okay.
There are lots of project management tools available nowadays. The choice ended up between Trello and Basecamp. Asana , JIRA and monday.com got a fair review but they didn't make it to the final list for several reasons (either way to complex or some UX issues or just too many options - good in some cases but not a good fit in this case).
Between Basecamp and Trello the battle was between ease of use and price. Basecamp packs a great set of features and if you are ready to move to an all in one solution: chat, file storage, and a PM tool, then @basecanp is by far the right choice. But since all the features are within one package that cannot be customized, moving to Basecamp but only using a part of the tool feels.. well.. not right. On the other hand Trello has the #kanban format that is just too easy to use and the price point for small and midsize team that no one can beat.
At the end, all solutions have a good fit in some cases. A better fit. But I think Trello can do the job in any case - it can fit with any scenario.
We use G Suite because of its cheap costs, easy management/administration, Excellent DKIM score, and everything that comes with it. We switched from Microsoft Office 365 because it doesn't work on Linux which is our OS of choice. Furthermore, G Suite does not lack any of the features that Office365 had to offer, I'd even say it offers more.
Google Apps provides FANTASTIC value for it's price. It's an entire office suite for $50 a year. I have been using Google Docs for the last 7 years and it is constantly getting better. It was at the point in 2013 that when I bought my new computer I didn't buy Microsoft Office. I use Google Drive for all my business needs.
With many users in Google Apps for Business platform it is very easy to keep documents organized and manage what can and can't be shared with other organizations. All your conversations, docs, and even conference calls are safe within a managed application. You will have easy control over communication and documents within your organization.
Scribe brings emails to Slack, and suggests 'smart replies' to them. We chose GSuite as our first email integration, since anyone that uses Slack typically also uses GSuite / Gmail!
Saves us a lot of time and headaches. Google groups is a powerful app. Gmail is just well thought-out and integrates well over multiple accounts.
You can design your customized logos with the help of the website first and then pay to get the ownership of the logo that you create later.
PrometheanTV uses the Google G Suite to provide basic business productivity services including, email, document sharing, calendars, etc.
I have used Basecamp for my project management system while in school at Bowling Green State University and at KHM Travel Group.
Internal communication, Google Docs, and Gmail. Google products are the best for startup. Cheap and cost effective per user.
Basecamp is a great tool for our non-development related collaborations. Everything from marketing to corporate planning.
