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.
We were using a hosted version of Redmine to track defects and user stories originally. We migrated to Jira.
Jira was an easy decision for a number of reasons:
- It's much more "Scrum ready" straight out of the box
- It's so much easier to keep a track of progress (I love the reporting)
- It natively encourages you to adhere to Scrum/Agile/Kanban practices
- Atlassian has a fantastic DevOps ecosystem when considering the likes of Confluence and Bamboo etc
- So many integrations!
- Its UI is so intuitive which makes it an absolute pleasure to use!
I know there are alot of other tools in this space but not even considering anything else at the moment. Love Jira!
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.

Also is part of the development processes to create requisites and other artefacts.
It's main use is in the development processes, it could be used to create manuals and software documentation as well, but is used more as a collaboration enterprise tool.
All of our (Engineering) knowledge is in Confluence. We document our thinking, our architecture, support recipes, trip notes, anything and everything. It's very important in a remote setting, to be have this type of knowledge store.
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.
We use Confluence for specifications and knowledge sharing. We chose Confluence over other wikis primarily because of its integration with JIRA
