Bufferapp: Social Media is increasingly becoming indispensable for brands and companies. Social media Management is one of the important roles in most companies and with increasing number of social media platforms it becomes hard to coordinate and maintain social media pages.

Bufferapp is a social media management tool which lets you manage all your social media accounts from a single dashboard. It lets you schedule, track and analyse posts for multiple platforms simultaneously.

Insightly: Managing contacts is hard work. Our external connections are often managed in an unorganized way. Consequently, we often miss opportunities or can't maintain communication with important contacts. CRM tools come handy here.

Insightly finds your contacts' social network profiles, LinkedIn information, and more, and show it alongside your team's emails, notes, and tasks with that contact. It also offers task management, advanced reports, and more that you'd expect from a full-featured standalone CRM.

Slack and HipChat: Smooth interaction in team is critical for team productivity. It is often difficult to do it in an effective and efficient manner. Slack and HipChat are two great tools to seamlessly manage communication within your team. These tools allows you to share files, links etc. and you also can create groups of specific teams.
