Which software and app are helping your business work virtually?
Whether it is video meetings, project management, productivity apps, and cloud services, what's your small business's go-to tech ?
Being a fairly mobile health practitioner (exercise physiologist), I use a number of software and apps to run my business. And now with telehealth (online consultations), our reliance on various apps has only increased. Here is a list of my go-to tech solutions:
* Physitrack - online exercise prescription and telehealth
* Zoom - plan B for telehealth
* Healthkit - patient management system including online bookings
* OneNote - for collecting and storing pretty much everything
* Efax - virtually send and receive faxes
* Google products - Sheets, Drive, Calendar

Video on how to work from home including virtual business tips
We are using Zoom, Microsoft teams and slack. Here's a video which outlines our best work from home tips including what software that we use....
We use GSuite for emails and Google Drive for file sharing and storage. Trello to keep track of leads and for task management amongst the team. Calendly is my saving grace when it comes to organising meetings with clients - I can only imagine how much time this saves me given booking in time with me, let alone busy clients can be a nightmare. This program allows the client to book in a time directly into my calendar and all availabilities are synced. I can also block out time that I'd "prefer" not to have meetings like Friday afternoons. We use Xero accounting software and Falcon.io/Later for scheduling and reports as well as MyGuestlist/Mailchimp for PR mailouts and analysis, text campaigns, newsletters etc.
The Zoho One has been helpful managing a workforce in multiple counties. We deal with large artwork file requiring next day turnaround, so monitoring the workflow and communication is critical.
We are sticking with Skype, the new alternative has security issues on MacOS and Chinese encryption keys.
I'm wary of the larger technology platforms which have a history of dropping services when not profitable. Having an unplanned adaption to a new platform is a nighmare that I don't want to expereince too many times.
