There are two common issues people face when trying to get others onboard with using 37signals tools:

1) “The IT department doesn’t like employees doing anything outside of its firewall.”

2) “I love your tools but I can’t get the rest of my team (or my clients) onboard with using them. They keep using email instead because it’s what they already understand.”

We’d love to hear solutions you’ve come up with for these trouble spots.

For #1, have you gotten your IT deparment to green light 37signals apps? How did you do it? Any suggestions for others who face the same battle?

For #2, how do you get busy people/clients to start logging in and using 37signals apps instead of messy email threads, phone calls, or whatever? Any suggestions for others who are in the same position?
