87814422Collaboration is more and more important as a way to work these days, especially if you’re using remote workers, outsourcing or allowing some employees to work from home. How do you sort through all the collaboration tools that are available? Business Pundit recently spotlighted a list of 10 Best Collaborative Web Tools for Business. While not all of these tools are suitable for small companies, many are worth taking a look at.

The top-ranked company on the list, Office Medium, is offering SmallBizDaily readers an extended free trial. Sign up with four or more people, and get a three-month free trial instead of the usual one month. Just e-mail with the subject line “PROMO” and “SmallBizDaily” as the body of the e-mail.
