Don’t get us wrong, Google Docs is great but when working on communal documents in real time, Quip is one of the best in the business. Quip allows you to create, share and edit documents on Android and iOS devices.


Time Zones

Sometimes companies have staff members in only a couple of different time zones, like Pacific and Eastern, that are easy to keep in mind when scheduling meetings, calls, virtual town halls, etc. However, there are other times when companies like CounterPath have teams in multiple cities, countries, continents and time zones. That is when things can get tricky.

EveryTimeZone allows you to have a snapshot of all the relevant time zones that you need to see, facilitating the scheduling and coordination of multiple teams.

LastPass Enterprise

When working in a team, security can become an issue when it comes to login credentials for online platforms and tools. Instead of having sensitive login information being transmitted through insecure means, LastPass enables business to create single sign-on portals for each team member. LastPass allows businesses to securely manage access to their online properties minimizing the risks associated with sharing sensitive login information with employees.
