  10. We are a vendor of an online authoring tool which runs in the
    cloud. Our company is based in three international locations
    and our partners and customers are all over the world. We use
    a ton of cloud based systems to communicate.

  11. I am not aware of any time in the last two years in which I, or a
    colleague, was unable to successfully log into Salesforce.com for
    retrieving and updating information. More importantly, even
    though the data is stored in the "cloud" the site is fully
    integrated with our internal database systems for upstream and
    downstream communication.

  12. Our company is 100% in the cloud. Everything from project
    management, accounting, billing, server monitoring and
    performance tracking, CRM, docs, email, marketing, file storage.
    If we lose a personal computer we can buy a new one and get
    up and running again within about an hour.

  13. I use Dropbox as my go to file storage. I can work on my
    developing docs no matter where I am. I use Wunderlist, but I’m
    still looking for a PM tool that non-techies will embrace.
    I use Google for shared docs and simple planning. I use Spotify
    to keep me sane.

  14. I can't imagine working without Dropbox anymore... an essential
    part of my workflow for sharing files and keeping things in sync
    across multiple systems.
    Basecamp and Minigroup have also become integral parts of
    client interaction... all files and communications in one location...
    also allow the clients to be involved in the process and feel they
    have contributed to the final product.
