Top 5 Unique Business Solutions to Try in 2022

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, most business owners have had to automate the processes underpinning their operations. A few years ago, such a scenario seemed improbable, unthinkable and almost untenable, but here we are, relentlessly searching for business solutions that can make our lives a tad bit better.

If you're one of those business owners who are still stuck in that tedious trek, you're in luck. We're going to discuss five tried-and-tested solutions that can help you counter everyday business challenges. As well as being efficient, reliable and user-friendly, these business tools are incredibly unique and open the door to a whole new world of creative possibilities.

1. Getting Paid (News - Alert): Stripe

Stripe's software and APIs are widely used by online companies to send payouts, accept payments and manage their businesses online. Getting paid shouldn't be a headache, not when robust solutions like Stripe are readily available and offer mind-blowing subscription rates. With Stripe, you can beat fraud, get financing, manage business spend and issue virtual and physical records — all from the comfort of your couch.

2. Collaborating With Colleagues: Slack

If there was a Swiss Army knife of team collaboration tools, then it would be Slack. This business solution allows team members to communicate on any desktop or mobile device, and it's particularly useful for businesses who've had to close shop due to the COVID pandemic (or whose employees work remotely). With a great mix of features such as video and audio calling, as well as powerful integration capabilities, using Slack allows you to create an efficient, highly collaborative workplace that gets work done with minimal supervision.

3. For Maximum Productivity: ClickUp

If your workplace is cluttered with too many tools doing too many things, you might benefit from having an all-in-one tool that brings everything into one place. That tool is none other than ClickUp. It provides all the components you need for productivity, including customizable tasks, spaces, folders, lists, nested subtasks and checklists. The best part? It allows you to connect these components in a way that works best for you.

4. Social Media at Tip of Your Fingers: Buffer

There's a bewildering array of social media management tools on the market today, but Buffer cuts through the noise by offering one unique proposition: you'll run, manage and optimize all your social media accounts from a single, do-it-all, all-powerful platform. With billions of people actively using social media today, you need a business solution that leverages these masses to your advantage, and Buffer does exactly that. What you get in the end are robust well-thought-out social media posts, more assured clicks and more qualified leads.

5. Taking Customer Relationship Management to a Whole New Level: Creatio

All CRMs capture lead and customer information, but Creatio's scalability and flexibility set it apart from similar platforms. A low-code CRM at its core, Creatio offers both Web and cloud-based deployment options that put your business on the front foot every single time.

That flexibility also extends to the marketing, sales and service applications that make up Creatio, which you can choose to deploy as stand-alone products or bundled together as an all-in-one platform. Here's the icing on the cake: Creatio exists as a mobile app too, meaning you can take your CRM with you wherever you go. And you don't have to sacrifice any features or development capabilities while at it — customer data, analytics, dashboard and mobile feed will all be available at your convenience.

The Bottom Line

There's no doubt that investing in the right business solutions is crucial for your enterprise's future growth and success. So what will it be: a cooker-cutter tool that fails to live up to the hype or a unique, tried-and-true solution that actually walks the talk? The ball is now in your court. Luckily, with the solutions outlined above, we're confident you'll have the perfect arsenal to knock your business goals out of the park.
