In order to streamline your day-to-day, we have compiled a list of the best must-have apps for startups that make complete sense. To oversimplify, these are grouped in categories so this guide makes total sense.
1. The Atlassian suite
The Atlassian suite is your go-to project management suite. There are plenty of other alternatives, but if you want to do any cross-functional teams, this is the best of the best. Everyone uses it and it has a collection of plugins that are developed by external third parties that can potentially solve all your workflow issues.
I would recommend starting with Jira, which is free for 10 users, but you can grow with it and not worry that it may not be able to grow with you
Now Asana is less tech-oriented, much less process controlled, and a bit more hipsterish. It's like my beloved Trello but on steroids. It also has a free tier that if you are just starting up, it will be enough!
Obviously the most flexible board management tool. It is simple, but it does not offer much control if you work with multiple people. It is more like an "everyone can do everything" type of thing. This is my favorite for all my personal projects and it just works.
No introduction is necessary, but especially for looking at new applications and communicating with applicants. Currently, it has 1 free job post per company profile and it helps immensely. I would highly recommend utilizing it
5. Indeed Jobs
Manage your other recruitment needs that are not covered by Linkedin. You can post anything that you want for free, but if you want more visibility, then it has a premium model. If you are good at selecting your titles, you will not need the premium model.
6. Meet Frank
A somewhat innovative approach to recruitment. I find it amazing, at least from the candidates perspective and you can handle everything through the app.
7. Google Analytics
Whatever you do, wherever you are, google analytics covers all the cases of your tracking needs. It's free, it works and its extremely easy to integrate in any solution.
Microsoft 365 is your all-in-one simple solution to handle all the necessary communication and management needs. This has everything that you can think of, for a monthly fee all in one fee.
Slack covers a lot, but it is mainly a chatting tool. Unfortunately, if you are using Microsoft, this does not make any more sense as Teams comes build in, but if you are using something else, then Slack is your go-to tool.
10. Google Workspace
All google stuff, similar to Microsoft, just google. It has differences, but it all depends on how you are used to it.
It is a french bank, which is targeted only towards small companies. Their app covers all your needs if you are in Europe.
Based on Solaris bank, a german banking alternative. This should also cover all your banking needs as well, but it has a bit more regulation.
