Collective Hub - - CONTENTS -

ELK

If you’re trav­el­ling with your biz or ex­pand­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally, a cur­rency con­vert­ing app will come in mighty handy. We like this one for its no-fuss sleek and sim­ple de­sign.

GENGO

This peo­ple-pow­ered trans­la­tion ser­vice has more than 21,000 trans­la­tors (col­lec­tively flu­ent in 37 lan­guages) ready to trans­late just about any doc­u­ment in any for­mat you can fling at them.

WORLD MEET­ING TIME

Plan­ning meet­ings across coun­tries? This tool sched­ules ac­cord­ing to par­tic­i­pants’ time zones. You in­put a time, it pop­u­lates the lo­cal time for all and sends out an email to con­firm.

BOOMERANG

This Gmail An­droid app lets you sched­ule when emails are sent, so they won’t be hit­ting your over­seas con­tacts’ in­boxes at some un­godly hour. If you’re an iOs user, you can ac­cess the func­tion via their web browser.

DUOLINGO

This free per­sonal lan­guage­learn­ing app uses gam­i­fi­ca­tion to get you con­vers­ing in new mar­kets in no time (it only takes five min­utes a day, they say).

BASE­CAMP

What’s the of­fice up to while you’re on the road? Base­camp project man­age­ment soft­ware teth­ers you to your team and lets you know who’s do­ing what (Trello works a treat here, too).

PINGDOM

Let web­site mon­i­tor­ing ser­vice Pingdom keep an eye on your site’s up­time and av­er­age re­sponse time so you can take in the sights while do­ing busi­ness abroad.

EVERSIGN

Good luck find­ing a printer and scan­ner to sign off doc­u­ments on the go. Eversign cre­ates an e-sig­na­ture, ap­plies it to doc­u­ments and invites oth­ers to add their e-sig­na­tures for you.
