1- ClickUp:

ClickUp is a project management application that is focused on removing frustrations, inefficiencies, and disconnects caused by current project management solutions. They achieve this core focus by enabling integrations within their application to easily import and sync so you can manage your projects in one place without having to switch between multiple tools and thereby resulting in a much more organized workflow and a considerable amount of time saved.

REVIEW:

ClickUp is a robust project management tool in the sense that it allows for unlimited users and tasks, but varies with regards to file storage (this limit is for attachments only), depending on the pricing plan you choose – which are quite affordable, too.

USAGE:

The ClickUp structure consists of a 5-level, top-down hierarchy that aids in effective project management. The structure is as follows:

At the top of the hierarchy, is the Workspace, which is your company or organization. Below the Workspace, is the Space, which can be your company/organization departments, clients, and projects. Coming after the Space is your Folder, where you can create groups and manage lists. After Folders, you have Lists, where you can manage tasks and subtasks. The last level of the hierarchy is the Tasks & Subtasks level, which aids in creating and completing tasks and subtasks.

2- Rewind:

Rewind

Since it’s so easy to accidentally delete or corrupt SaaS application data, this tool is favoured by companies and organizations that are concerned about the risk of losing their critical data. Rewind is a backup and recovery solution that every business needs. Imagine the peace of mind that comes with knowing that every miniscule detail about your business is captured and can be retrieved at any time, with just a click of a button, should a catastrophe strike.

REVIEW:

A staggering amount of companies, specifically e-commerce stores, recommend having Rewind and cite the following reasons for endorsing Rewind: the proliferation of hackers and human error, just to name a few.

Rewind has a dynamic pricing plan that is determined by how much traffic your business gets, such as orders per month on e-commerce stores.

USAGE:

To get started, create your Rewind account, and then link it to the account that you want to back up. Once linked, your first of many backups begin and your linked account is encrypted and securely stored in the Rewind vault.
