~185 person company, easily over 150 SaaS applications. It's pretty wild. Some overlap (e.g. Typeform and Woofoo), but not as much as you would think.
We're using at least 19 apps company-side right now:
We use the following to power our site: Google Analytics, Amplitude, Segment, Agolia, GitHub, AWS, Stripe, Twilio, and Typeform
And then these power our team’s work: Slack, Notion, Zoom, G Suite, Customer.io, Gusto, Figma, Brex, Sendgrid, and Front.
And I'm almost sure there are more that I'm forgetting there, plus tools we each picked and use individually in our work. It's rather incredible how much software it takes to power a modern team—though at the same time, how much those services let you do without having to build from scratch.
Then, for some role or industry focused stacks from across the community, here are some stacks from earlier Capiche discussions:
Those are more focused on what a particular team would use, but still give a bit of insight into what people pick.
I know of these: Github, ZenHub, Notion, Hubspot, Moz, Slack, Zoom, Dropbox, SalesForce, Office 365, Grammarly, Google Analytics, Postalytics, Prospect.io, Uplead, SurveyMonkey, WriterAccess, CrazyEgg, Basecamp (with vendors), Integrify (we use our own app internally for workflow automation).
I think if you look at most mid to large companies they are easily using 50+ SAAS apps across the organization. That's why there are SAAS apps for 'SAAS Management' lol. We need another SAAS just to manage all our SAAS!!!
I am in a company of 20 people. I can count 20 apps we are paying for and I'm sure I'm missing a few.
I've written about the SaaS stack we use at Zluri on hackernoon.
Latest update: We are now 14 employees and used 40+ tools.
About 40 people in our division but we are part of 1,000+ employees. Over 100 tools, half SaaS, half enterprise i would say. Because pretty hairy to manage over time, get equipped with the right tool to build and maintain the inventory.
Hey, Sivan from Spike,
In terms of internal tools, we only rely on Spike (and this is not a shameless plug). We used to use Jira, but moved everything to Spike, which is an all-in-1 email inbox that lets us plan projects, create to dos, team chat, video calls, schedule meetings all from Spike. Any time a task or collaborative doc is updated, it just jumps up in the feed. It's super streamlined and keeps our team of 20 on top of everything.
I'd have to say one of the main benefits of that is that we don't need a tool to manage our tools.
For things not related to internal comms or collab, the marketing team uses tools for ASO/SEO analysis and CRM for client success and management.
