HeapAnalytics does analytics in a way that makes sense for startups. Since you don’t always know what the best metrics are as a startup, Heap captures everything and let’s you parse the data and define metrics AFTER you’ve collected some.

Buffer Let’s you quickly schedule your tweets, FB shares, LinkedIn posts to go off according to best possible times instead of just ad hoc. Helps you keep a consistent social presence, even when on holiday! Also works with teams.

Shoeboxed takes your pile of receipts and scans it for you. I keep a Shoeboxed envelope on my desk and just throw all my receipts in it. They take care of the rest and I stop wasting time on menial tasks. Well worth it.
