I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

We often get asked about what technologies we use in our digital workplace. So here is a list of our current most used technology. The goal has been, when adding these to the mix, to ensure that our business remains location independent and that the tools are all synced and accessible across devices.


G-Suite (we do a lot of real-time document collaboration which is why we opted for G-Suite above Microsoft 365. Google Docs are designed for this kind of collaboration)
Dropbox (we use of combination of G-Suite Drive and Dropbox – depending on what it is we want to share)
Apptivo (our CRM)
Facebook Messenger (IM, Video & Audio Calling)
Facebook Workplace (our internal social network)
Buffer (we use this extensively to help schedule social media content)


Zoom (we use this platform for all our online meetings and trainings)
Xero (our accounting software)

Over to you, what apps and services do you use daily and weekly?
