Glip by RingCentral is truly a game changer in the project management software industry It’s extremely innovative and offers a number of new and exciting features as well as an overall experience that it unrivalled by anything else on the market. It’s also free with RingCentral, making it an even more enticing option. There is a small yet very noticeable bug in Glip regarding the percentage completion of tasks, where Glip will report, for example, 20% of 40% being completed, even though it’s actually just 20% more of the task being completed compared to before. -via Capterra

Top on the list of any messaging…

Top on the list of any messaging software like this is the fact that it doesn’t have ads. Second, the fact that it doesn’t seem to limit your conversation history to a few weeks and try to get you to upgrade to increase the history limit is a nice benefi Finally, it makes attaching files, screenshots (just paste) and inserting illustrative GIFs simple. I’ve noticed that sometimes there are not notifications for incoming messages (no ding, no visual indicator), and I’ve missed some time-sensitive requests from co-workers because of that. -via Capterra

Before using Glip, it was difficult to send messages and communicate across the company. Sure we had email and text messages, but there was no central hub for us as means to communicate. Emails get over flooded with important and unimportant emails, this software has been useful and I would recommend it to small sized businesses. This software is really good to follow up with employees after given a particular task You can make groups, add attachments and set up a reminder to follow up Includes collaborative document editing, a team calendar, and PDF markup tools. Honestly, I have been using glip on a daily basis since 1 year and have not come across any negatives for this software. They could definitely work on expanding the features -via Capterra

It’s easy to use and I would like that it can sync all messages to all endpoints and it’s easy to manage your task and your schedule. It takes a lot of time to refresh, and it takes a long time to render gif. It cannot change group’s name. Overall easy to connect with my colleagues and save time to manage my tasks -via Capterra

It’s easy to use and we’ve not run into issues with it. You want something like internal office chat to work at all times and this does the trick. We don’t take full advantage of what it has to offer as we use just the basic features. Haven’t run into any negatives yet. -via Capterra

If you have a small, startup business, and you need an easy way to communicate with other team members in one place, Glip can help. It’s recent integration with RingCentral is helpful as well. Tech challenged employees take longer to acclimate to Glip. When you create teams or conversations, you can’t easily remove employees from them. Instead, you need to start new groups and hope no one bumps the old conversation. Has Zapier integration, but could use more hooks to allow communication with other Zaps. -via Capterra

There are so many communication tools. But this system is built by communication (phone application) company, therefore it is a very comprehensive system. If you have RingCentral, Glip comes with it. It is integrated with phone application. So communication is seamless. It doesn’t have file storing function (as far as I know). I can attach files but it is not ideal to keep files in Glip. -via Capterra

It has an app that you can download to use on your pc and smartphone. This has increased productivity ten fold. People are no longer getting up from their desk and walking across the building to ask questions. I would like more control of some of the configuration settings as an admin As an admin all I can really do is invite people to the teams. I would like to be able to check on messages and things like that as an admin. Overall It cuts down the time it takes to get questions answered and cuts down on the chitch -via Capterra

Glip allows you create chat teams and assign task in it, share large files and access it in three platforms – desktop app, mobile app and browser-based access.

I love the fact that you can add tasks and assign them to yourself or coworkers and it cuts down on email. It’s great to have that “checked something off the list feeling.” It might be better if it wasn’t it’s own program and worked within Microsoft Outlook since it’s likely that most customers use that for email. An easy way to organize my tasks/schedule. -via Capterra

so I think everyone should use glip. No, I don’t work for glip. I used to use slack and then we hit 10k msgs and were forced to pay or loose our data. that stinked. with glip it’s free. I don’t know how they survive but they do. glip is really really awesome. the app never crashes (yes my slack would sorta crash and do buggy stuff). glip is like slack but free. -via Capterra

Overall the software has saved us tons in time and money being able to manage the different teams all in one place and easily communicate. Easy to collaborate with a team AND keep all of my organizational and plans up to date, sharing them only with those who need access to collaborate. Very easy to organize as well. And very easy to communicate with other members of the organization. I wish the calendar had the ability to have things recure based on the #th day of the month or by the #rd day of the week of the month, having more control over the frequency. I also think they could make it more user friendly in terms of keeping files and such organized -via Capterra

Great software and it can be used for free for smaller businesses. Tasking – Not only for yourself, but you can assign tasks to co-workers and co-worker group Tons of integrations Instant Message/Chat/ Texting style of communication between co-workers or clients. You can collaborate a team quickly and keep everything organized and it’s as easy as texting! Doesn’t integrate with Hubspot, but does with Salesforce. Really the only downside is trying to get all my co-workers to use Glip. -via Capterra

Everyone in our office uses Glip…

Everyone in our office uses Glip because it’s bundled with RingCentral and that’s our unified communications solution. File sharing, starting calls or video meetings, creating and assigning tasks, groups of as many or few team members as you need – I don’t know if there’s anything groundbreaking here, but it is all included in one app, it IS all essential, and if you’re a RingCentral customer it’s 100% free. My preference would be for synchronization between Glip’s calendar and Google’s to be a two way street. But although you can upload your Google calendar to Glip, the extra functionality within Glip prohibits updates there from syncing back to Google. -via Capterra

A lot of built in things. Think of it as Slack more oriented business and project management. Calendar, task tracking, collaborative document edition, you name it … all in one place. Could we please have code highlighting or verbatim in the chat? A bit more of support for IT project management would be great! -via Capterra

Provider Overview

Glip was created by Ring Central as a tool for office communication and team collaboration.  It allows for users to create chat rooms for different topics and projects, share files, and communicate with each other on any device.  The standout feature for Glip is video chatting, which is available on mobile devices and in all price plans, including the free version.  The video chat feature includes screen sharing and whiteboards.

If you are thinking of going the paid route for a collaborative team messaging app, this is probably the least expensive option.  And it still offers a lot of features and quality.  Although the focus is on team chat, Glip also allows users to assign tasks and includes a robust and fully integrated team calendar.  This means that Glip could easily be used as an all around work management tool for SMBs.  Although Glip doesn’t offer a timeline, drop and drag, or dependency feature that may be helpful for larger, more complicated projects, Glip does go above and beyond the basics, even in its free version.
