5. Dropbox: This cloud storage service enables easy and secure file sharing by syncing selected files and folders across all devices.

Top video conferencing tools include:
1. Zoom: A favorite among companies for virtual meetings, Zoom is fast and easy to use. It offers live chat, camera options, microphones, whiteboard, slideshows, and can host up to 1000 participants with a license (100 without). High-quality video recording allows for later review or sharing.

Hi there! Undoubtedly, Microsoft Office tools such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are essential. Google Suites is another key platform we utilize. Additionally, we also work with various unique systems specific to different companies. For conferencing, we transitioned from Webex to the more user-friendly BlueJeans conferencing portal. As for internal chat messaging, we've moved from Jabber/Cisco to the more streamlined Slack platform. Google Meet is another communication tool we frequently use. Remember, the tools used can vary depending on the specific company and their preferences. I hope this information is useful to you!
