Highrise is a cloud-based project-management and contact-management software that is designed for small businesses. Highrise comes from 37signals, which also created Basecamp, the highly regarded collaboration software. I began using Highrise in May and I love it.
The Benefits: I have one place where I can manage projects, tasks, and my contacts. All of the information that I keep can be woven together in ways that make sense to me.
My Favorite Feature: The “Dropboxes,” which make it possible to forward e-mails quickly to specific contacts and projects. You can even make a to-do task from an e-mail. Dropboxes are an enormous time-saver and efficiency-booster for me.
The Result: Since I began using Highrise, I am more organized, efficient, and productive, and I am less stressed.
Price: I pay $29/month, which is the single-user fee and the “Solo” package.
