      "I didn't think this software was worth the price after the free trial. I went back to using Google Docs and Dropbox. it does give you a free trial if you want to try it out."

      "I was looking to improve my project management software, so I decided to check out Wrike. It isn't perfect, but it works well. I like how my employees can collaborate using this and reach out to others for their various projects."

      "Asana has helped me and my work team a great deal on our project. The software organizes our project so we can concentrate on other tasks at hand. Without Asana it would of taken me a lot longer to finish my project, this tool is a life saver. "

      "When you are running a business like I do sometimes it can be very hard to communicate with all of your employees at once, especially when they are using Apple and Android OS phones alike. With iCloud I no longer have to worry about that problem because I can quickly upload and share files within the system with all employees using OS X and I can quickly make changes and re-upload them as well as acquire files from my employees in a snap. It's nice to have a place where I can quickly spread ideas without having to wait for an office meeting and I don't have to worry about certain things not working properly as iCloud gives me the tools I need to setup everything so that it works on OS X without issue."

      "iCloud isn't really the best tool for collaboration. It's more of a personal thing than a collaboration tool. There are some integration tools available for it, but there are better platforms available."

      "exo Platform is a software that creates a very interactive work ambient in which it's easier to communicate and share projects and works. Every middle/big sized company should give it a try and, most likely, they would see their productivity increased in a very short time."

      Angela Lawrence - January 3, 2017

      "I have been looking for a good collaboration tool that works on OS X for awhile now. When I found exo Platform, I was a little skeptical but a friend of mine swore by it so I gave it a try. I have been pleasantly surprised! It has been working seamlessly and all of my teams are loving it. It has drastically improved productivity and that is one thing you just can't argue with. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking for a solid collab tool."

      "It seems that this application is more prone for project management within a team than it is at actually collaborating. It could be said to cover a part of the tools that you would need to collaborate. More tools would be required to do a good job."

      Stephen Nichols - April 12, 2017

      "For project management, Workfront is hands down one of the best (if not best) options available. There are a few different subscriptions you can choose from, to better work to your needs. "
