Software Information for Your Business

Short YouTube Clips (mostly)

Last Updated: 29 April 2019

ADVISORY: The following list of software tools is only a small selection of those available and Geomancia Pty Ltd does not recommend any particular application. Business operators should undertake ‘due diligence’ before using, purchasing or subscribing to any particular software tool. The selected YouTube clips may not be the best choice to introduce the relevant software but they are ‘safe for work’ and concise (usually less than 4 minutes). FREE or ‘freemium’ software is denoted with an asterisk. Keep in mind that that the business software space is changing very rapidly and related information also dates quickly. Links to selected software review sites are provided at the bottom of this page. If you’re interested in why software is transforming the economy, click on this link.
