Business software is a digital application, generally taking the form of a service that aids in the function of a business throughout its many stops and individuals through the pipeline. These types of software can function predominantly with organizations such as Monday.com or aid in communication like Microsoft Teams or Slack.
While many enterprise software act as a “cover-all,” they generally specialize in one aspect, only allocating enough auxiliary tools to achieve full functionality within a space. For the budding entrepreneur, or the ambitious manager looking to institute a set of new software for their team and business, look no further. Here are 5 great examples of enterprise software, and their place within the market.
Built on communication, Slack is about focusing the team on task through seamless connection. Originally built as a project manager for an online game, “Glitch.” Slack superseded the bounds of the game itself and is now one of the most ubiquitous software on the market.
Self-promoted as a company’s “Digital HQ”, Slack itself, allows for messaging, video chats, workspaces, and numerous integration across platforms like Google Drive, Trello, Box, GitHub, and more.
Slack, which is owned by Salesforce, is a free service that allows purchases for additional, full-use features. Ultimately Slack is about connecting people within your company and beyond, the emphasis is on inter-company communication more so than other aspects of project management.
Monday.com, now nearly infamous for its slew of Pre-Roll YouTube ads, is another highly competitive enterprising software. Its main focus stems from allowing companies to create their own software and application services. It works similarly to Slack and other services as it is a cloud-based project management software.
However, the unique selling point for monday.com is its unique and distinguished pipeline structure. This is built around a unique selling point of being fully customizable. This means that you are able to integrate the necessary applications that your company depends on to set up the workflow nodes, and tasks to structure your pipeline – your way.
In the end the seamless workflow and customization options set apart this valued 1.9 billion dollar company.
3. Salesforce / Customer 360
The parent company of Slack is another one of our examples of enterprise software. If you do any work even semi-remotely, it is more than likely Salesforce or one of its subsidiaries is assisting you somewhere along your pipeline. Like many CRM services, it covers communication, workflow charts, limited messaging capabilities, and deadline mapping.
It should go be noted that “Salesforce” is just the overarching umbrella creator of numerous business software. This does include:
Application and Software Development
With the amalgamation of all these software, Salesforce is often touted as the number one CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Software in the world.
Comparable to both Salesforce and Monday.com ClickUp is yet another workflow and client managing software that lends itself particularly well to massive in-house agency-type settings. It is composed of the standard pipeline communication suite present in most CRM/Agency software.
Naturally, it allows for “Spaces” and internal messaging features, clients and individuals can submit work and take full advantage of an integrated comment feature allowing for a seamless workflow. It features project categorization, with tags that label “stage-of-workflow” placement. Additionally, it does include messaging features, however, they are often cluttered and lackluster.
While this is slightly different from other technologies in this article. SEMRush is about keyword optimization and lead conversion logistics. In particular, this is an internal outreach technology, more heavily focused on gearing your business into an outreach machine, capable of collecting the proper keywords for pertinent positioning.
In the end, each of these examples of enterprise software allows for its own unique work stylings and complementary integrations. This means regardless of the similar systems provided, the presentation of the user interface potentially drastically changes how used.
So, it is ideal to more fully understand the business you are working in and how that will change the nature of the application being used and how daily functions are performed.
