In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, AI is no longer just a buzzword but a critical tool for enhancing business operations for leaders who find themselves constantly overextended. For many organizations, especially startups and small businesses, the cost of enterprise-grade AI tools can be a barrier that makes it seem that AI-powered tools are out of reach. 

Fortunately, there’s an abundant amount of AI management tools that offer free plans or freemium models, not only providing a taste of AI’s power without a hefty price tag but also providing business leaders sampling of software before having to invest likely scarce capital. 

Let’s go and explore five AI tools that can revolutionize the way business leaders manage projects, communicate, and handle documents, all while boosting overall productivity.

In-Person and Virtual Conference

ClickUp AI Assistant

The ClickUp project management platform is renowned for its versatility and user-friendly interface. Similar to Asana, it has a built-in AI assistant that elevates productivity by offering creative text generation, language translation, and document summarization directly within the ClickUp environment. For a business that may need some extra help with project management, this is a great tool to help get the ball rolling before hitting a wall when it comes to productivity. 

While ClickUp’s free forever plan provides a solid starting point, the AI Assistant’s full capabilities really shine within their paid plans. So if teams enjoy using this AI-powered tool, it could be a solid investment once there are resources available. 


There aren’t many people who aren’t familiar with Grammarly in one form or another. But too often, it can be overlooked by business leaders who are too busy searching the macro while the micro is right in front of them. That’s because Grammarly goes beyond the basics of grammar and spell check. Its AI-driven suggestions for clarity, conciseness, and engagement can transform mundane business writing into compelling communication. It’s a great resource for new businesses that have a lot to lose if first impressions aren’t stellar. 

The free plan is a great entry point for individuals, but for teams aiming to elevate their writing, the paid business plans offer advanced suggestions and invaluable team management features, ensuring consistency and impact across all business communications.

Loom has become a fast favorite among those who enjoy training up their colleagues but can’t seem to make time to meet together. That’s because Loom integrates seamlessly into the daily workflow of business leaders, offering screen and webcam recording capabilities paired with AI-powered transcription. This feature is particularly useful for creating video messages, presentations, or tutorials that are accessible and easy to digest. While the free plan covers basic needs with recording limits, upgrading unlocks extended recording times and additional features, enhancing communication within and outside the organization.

Any.do with Tasks & Automation

Any.do is another tool that can help manage task management by incorporating AI to automate routine tasks and optimize scheduling based on workload. Its AI algorithms also personalize task suggestions and prioritize them, ensuring that critical tasks are never overlooked. The free plan offers a glimpse into AI-driven task management, while the premium plan expands on automation and integration capabilities, streamlining workflows like never before.
