Let's start a thread here posting reviews of helpful products we've used. Perhaps an online tool that's been useful in your business or another tool that's helped a client. I'm looking forward to seeing your reviews, comments, and suggestions.
I can NOT live without my second monitor. I can drag directions to it instead of printing them out, I can have my email inbox open on it to watch for incoming email while I am doing other stuff on the computer, or I can have a document's original version open on it while I am editing it on my first screen. It makes my life so much easier, its convenient, its green and I save money. Its the best $20 I ever spent. I found it on craigslist. I might even have to get another one...LOL.
I have found several things that have become quite useful to me in my businesses I have included the links to the websites so that you can see for yourself, instead of taking my word. These are all bits and pieces that I use on a daily basis.
I am in search of a web based application that provides time management, time tracking, project management, timesheet and reporting. Any ideas or suggestions. Everything I have looked at so far either lacks the most critical component or you is not web based since you have to download something to your computer.
It's a more advanced tool, but for virtual workers, having the ability to no longer be tied to a single computer could be fantastic.
We just moved all the information from our network to Amazon's Simple Storage Service. It's going to cost under $10US/month to securely store all the data that was on our local computers. It's online file storage which you can access using simple 'explorer' type tools.
Now, we can access it from anywhere in the world there's an internet connection. Perhaps now we'll go travel the world.
