    "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."

    "This app doesn't feature a stand alone version for OS X but can be accessed via their website. The basic version is free to use and has a number of useful tools. If you want access to more features you have to pay for their use."

    "Slack is wonderful for organizing team projects. I have used it many times for big and small projects. My team loves it as well, because it makes the workflow a lot easier. I don't think we could go without it now."

    "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."

    "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."

    "I'm not a huge Apple person but all my employees use their products. I've got all Windows devices. I've found Clarizen to be a great way to communicate and collaborate with my employees on these devices. I didn't get any push back when they saw how easy the software is to use. It's fully supported in both OS X and Windows."

    "Workfront has really helped my team complete our jobs faster and more efficiently. It was a little difficult to learn to use at first, but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed everything it allowed us to do. I think a workshop or training course would help in small groups to learn how to use it. Overall it's helped our communication and collaboration immensely."

    "I came across Mavenlink while searching for Collaboration tools to use on my Mac. The application is easily used across many platforms and provides a great deal of collab among many of my team members. Support is always great and we are helped promptly whenever we've needed which has been few. Pricing is wonderful and allows us to stay tight on budget but expand without high capital expenditures."

    "The link to one product was good because it gave me an exact way to download a collaboration tool for OS X. It does seem more of an ad than a solution. I would rather see multiple comparisons of collaboration tools."
