When you think of "the cloud" you typically think of tools like Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Docs, UbuntuOne – most are sync and storage apps and services. However, the cloud is much more than that. There are tools and utilities to cover nearly every aspect of your daily business life. From combining accounts, to financial services, to backups, to note-taking tools, the cloud has you covered. But where do you begin to look for the right tools?

Simple - I have found five solid cloud-based utilities that can help to make your daily business life much easier. Some of these tools are free, some are not, some are desktop-based, and some are ready for your mobile device. No matter the cost or the platform, these tools are ready to serve your business (and, in some cases, personal) needs.
