Harnessing the Power of the Cloud

Oh we do love Cloud hopping!!  So today I would like to share with you guys some of the tools we use here at Coffee Not Included that enable us to work in this wonderful virtual world of ours.

If you hadn’t guessed already we get a tad excited about using these and other new technologies as we find them – so if you are even just a little geeky (we promise not to tell!!)  then check these out below, we’ll bring you another toolkit in our next blog post ;-)


FREE Skype to skype telecommunications, video calling or even calling mobiles and landlines at minimal cost.


FREE For easily accessible file storage and sharing, wherever you are, Dropbox instantly saves, files, photos etc to your computer, mobile phone and the Dropbox Website.


Focus on what you love to do, Freshbooks enables fast and efficient invoicing and payments online and you are able to brand your invoices too!

Active Collab

An awesome all in one project management solution that enables you to provide a detailed history for clients as well as keeping track of current projects and tasks.  With the ability to delegate to members of your team at the touch of a button, Active Collab provides detailed management within a simple overview.

So there you have just a few of the tools we use here at Coffee Not Included on pretty much a regular basis.

We’ll bring you some more very soon but in the meantime – what is your favourite Cloud application?

    Great post Tracey, I love my skype and freshbooks, I haven’t used Active Collab yet but I forsee that happening soon.  I also love Echosign = no paperwork.
