Make Smart Software Choices (and not cheap choices)

I was just reading a blog post over at Internet Redux. Titled Basecamp not for you? Check out Wrike, the author extols the virtues of a project management software because of its price, $3.99 per user per month. For $12/month,this author can get his 3 employees all using the same project management tool.

The Hidden Costs of “Free” CRMs

While getting coffee a couple of days ago I overheard someone in the line behind me say one of the most cliched lines ever set to music: “The best things in life are free.” That may very well be true in a sort of metaphysical or emotional aspect (some of us might actually have to […]

Work Smarter, Work Faster, and Save Time with WORKetc and G Suite

Google unveiled a new name for their popular suite of productivity apps last year. Instead of Google Apps for Work, it’s now known simply as G Suite. As a Google Cloud Partner, we were quick to conform to the new naming convention. If you’ve looked over our G Suite help docs over the past few […]
