Hot dangit!  Cloudsway is hosting our fun THRIVEal Birthday Party and Live podcast on Thursday night, October 18th!  They describe their product best: 
"The CloudSway way is like a symphony. We take instruments, time tracking, document management, workflow management, task management and auditing and blend them into a harmonious collection of cloud applications. If you search the web, there is literally thousands of each of these applications, from expensive to free, but no one has created a bundle that interacts with each other without having to try and collaborate with 14 different applications. We are working to provide through one platform, a Canon, an epoch of accessibility."
