Task and team management
First up is the platform Monday.com.

Meistertask.com is a similar platform to Monday.com, and it is difficult to say which platform is better. Both offer free and paid versions.
Sending large files
Wetransfer.com is another online tool that every SME should know about. This is an old one and most working people are familiar with the file sharing platform. There are, however, still some entrepreneurs driving around with memory sticks and external hard drives to share files and to get large documents to and from clients. There are multiple platforms out there to help you share files which are too big to email, but Wetransfer.com is probably one of the most user-friendly tools. If you need to send or receive large documents or photos, Wetransfer.com is a simple, free tool that allows you to do exactly that.
Google Drive is Google’s version of cloud-based file storage system and is another great tool to use for sharing large files.
