Review: Seeing New Sights With Insight.ly
Such a clever URL — insight.ly. Why not just call it “Insightly”? It’s all just a mystery.
However, what isn’t a mystery is the high-quality resource for CRM in business, ‘Insightly,’ a computer app organization designed specifically for the Google Apps. Not an unsightly thing.
Review: Zoho Is That Zephyr in the Sky

Black Friday, ladies and gentlemen, is rapidly approaching. And what most small business folks–especially those heavily involved in retail sales–know is that this is the time of year when you expect to make most of your sales. That’s where the term comes from, after all: the time of year you can switch from the red ink denoting losses to the black ink denoting profits. But while you think of the things you need–sufficient product, expanded employee hours, maybe a little security to work the door to keep the shrinkage down and your flow of movement high–consider adding one more thing to your roster, perhaps the most important of all: a cloud-based telephone system.

Review: Dropbox–A Valuable Program In Certain Conditions
Normally when I set out to review an app, it’s not usually one that I’ve been using for some time previously. But today is different, as I’ve formerly used Dropbox as part of previous employment, so I’m well acquainted with this one.
