Slack has quickly become one of the most popular project management and collaboration tools, especially for companies with remote workers.

Files, groups, and members are all completely searchable, making it easy to pull up previous conversations. It’s available for web, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

High Five is a video conferencing tool that offers versatile solutions for carrying out online meetings and conferences simpler and more enjoyable. This software tool can prove to be a major addition to your business especially if you deal with clients from another city or country.

It doesn't matter whether you're hoping to make a flowchart, an engineering diagram, a floorplan, or a software mockup–Visio offers appropriate templates and shapes, more than any other option we looked at. The familiar Microsoft Office interface makes it easy to discover functionality, meaning you'll be creating something in no time. Creating a flowchart is fast and intuitive, as is creating other sorts of diagrams. And there's a wide variety of export options, including image formats and SVG vectors.
