Redbooth is a unique product that merges task management features, file sharing, and live collaboration tools. It’s missing a few of the features (project budgeting, risk assessment, etc.) that typically come with full project management solutions. That said, Redbooth is still a great option for small teams that need an easy-to-use task management solution.
Mavenlink is a powerful business tool. However, as Mavenlink reviews from users confirm, the Mavenlink package is not without its deficiencies, with its sub-par mobile “app” being prominent among them. All things considered, is Mavenlink a good fit for your business?

I love to see this sort of built-in software — it’s reminiscent of Square and Stripe. What’s more, Gravity offers consultations to help you choose a POS. The company also offers to set you up with a gift card/loyalty program (again, via a partner), as well as PCI compliance services and working capital.

The service allows customers to complete purchases, make donations, and set up recurring payments on a merchant’s website by making payments through their Amazon account. Amazon Pay is a simple way to begin accepting credit and debit cards, and the service has mostly positive reviews.
Compatibility with virtually all shopping carts makes 2Checkout a more viable option for many eCommerce merchants than other alternatives (such as Stripe or PayPal). This broad compatibility and wide international availability make the company an excellent choice for those who don’t need to accept card-present transactions.
