Kashoo
Online account service Kashoo's strengths are income- and expense-management, usability, and support. Add a bunch of new features and a slick new UI, and you have a top choice for freelancer bookkeeping.



GoDaddy Bookkeeping
GoDaddy Bookkeeping provides good basic tools for tracking income and expenses. The service's direct integration with Amazon, eBay, and Etsy make it especially useful for entrepreneurs who sell with those sites.



Google Drive Passes 2 Trillion Files Stored
Google's next big announcement is going to be when the service hits one billion active users.



Meeteor
Meeteor tries hard to give order to meeting chaos and create useful follow-up tools. The online collaboration tool orchestrates the meeting process, providing structure for before, during, and afterwards. But, despite excellent structural tools for meeting setup, it never quite pulls it off.



Intermedia Cloud PBX
Intermedia Cloud PBX is an excellent Voice-over-IP (VoIP) service with a deep feature set. Though it's not the cheapest, its features and their implementation and delivery are worth the extra cost when you factor in access to excellent support, cross-service integration, and a host of additional business cloud services.



The Best Real Estate CRM Software of 2017
Choosing CRM software for a real estate operation requires careful attention paid to customization, cross-platform uniformity, and especially data security. We review 10 such platforms to make choosing the right one easy.



Act-On
Act-On is one of the best marketing automation suites on the market. But can you afford all that it has to offer?



Agiloft Service Desk
Agiloft Service Desk is a highly capable tool that requires a good bit of work to get properly configured, but it offers a lot in return for enterprises looking for both an external and internal helpdesk solution.



PortalGuard
Provisioning to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps, a key component of modern Identity-Management-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solutions, is missing from current builds of PortalGuard. Pricing for large businesses is competitive and may make PortalGuard worth a look for enterprises that don't necessarily need SaaS provisioning from their IDaaS solution.



Optimal IdM
Optimal IdM checks all the major boxes needed in an Identity-Management-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution, but at a serious premium. With monthly costs easily running in the $25,000-$30,000 range, most businesses are going to compare the cost of Optimal IdM to competitors such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory and Okta Identity Management plus one or two full-time employees.
