    Top tools our clients love

    Communications is about more than just innate skills – the tools we use can make a big difference too!

    At Think HQ, we’ve tried and tested countless project management and communications programs over the years. Here are some of our current favourites, used by many of our clients.

From spreadsheets that can organise your projects (social media content calendar and GANTT charts are our favourites), to HR and financial record keeping, Smartsheet is a top all-rounder. Users can invite others to edit, add and annotate spreadsheets, so it’s easy to track each other’s progress.

    Hootsuite
