Workplace is a business communication platform by Facebook. The major advantage is that the interface is very familiar; it looks almost identical to Facebook.

  • Basecamp[/tie_list]

Basecamp is like a massive digital noticeboard. The freeform interface might not be for everyone. Each project will have a page with subsections all visible for you. So just like a notice board you see what’s on the board and go pick the thing you need to access. It is great for those who like a different feel to the other collaborative platforms. Plus, the app logo is pretty adorable looking.
