Glip – Faster Business Decisions

Glip is a productivity tool that organizations can use to shorten the length of the average workday. Centered around advanced text and video chat features, Glip helps teams solicit smarter feedback and make faster decisions by focusing on simplicity and organization.

Think about how much time you waste clicking from tab to tab on your browser, switching between your email inbox, calendar, and instant messaging applications each day. Glip’s web-based application brings all these tools into one centralized place. Create “teams” based on the projects you’re working on — for example, you could create a marketing team and a sales team — and host virtual chats with the colleagues on each of your teams. In one feed, you can ask questions, share files, and host video and voice chats. You can also add new tasks, events, links, and notes with one click. Because all of the information about your projects is contained in one place, you don’t have to go searching for misplaced files in your inbox or Dropbox folder. Everything in Glip is searchable and easily accessible 24/7.

Glip has created a virtual environment that functions exactly like a real world conference room, enabling teams to work together efficiently, effectively, and in real-time. Groups can even bring outsiders, like clients, into their meetings by sending invitations to video chat sessions.

Practical Uses:

  • Spend less time going back-and-forth with colleagues over email
  • Quickly collect feedback on an ad campaign you’ve been working on
  • Chat with colleagues located around the world
  • Create a shared calendar for your team

Insider Tips:

  • Integrate Glip into your email inbox
  • Assign specific tasks to individual colleagues
  • All users on a company’s account have the same permissions
  • Individual chats can be made public (group) or private

What we liked:

  • Users can schedule meetings and events without leaving the Glip platform
  • Glip isn’t trying to change the natural workflow in most offices
  • Archiving and search features enable users to quickly pull up past conversations
  • Glip allows for an unlimited number of guest users

What we didn’t like:

  • Glip doesn’t support very many existing business apps

  1. Nicely put. You should take a look at the mobile app for iPhone & Android. Between mobile, web and desktop notifications, the team inbox, IM/Chat and text messaging is immediately replaced by one app that super easy to use.
