I work with, consult and coach collaborative software.
I prefer to use and recommend software that:
- is platform independent
- has an exit plan for your data
- has some sort of roadmap for the future if possible
- is transparent
- “plays well with others” ie has the ability to connect with other software either natively or via Zapier, IFTT or Integromat
I am collecting a database of good collaborative software that I either use or recommend here.
This is using one of my top software favourites – Airtable – which “Looks Like A Spreadsheet | Acts Like A Database”. Airtable is a fantastic example of simple user interface for very complex software.
