Overview Presentation

Glip Logo

Glip is RingCentral’s collaboration software with free real-time web messaging application, group video chat, and task management. It is a team productivity solution that is more efficient than using email and multiple applications for specific jobs. People are spending more time in their inbox by using it as a central workspace for reading messages, scheduling deadlines, assigning tasks, sharing files, getting notifications, and other work activities. However, it is insufficient to handle all these demands, so people become less productive. Time and money are also lost when people use several applications together but are meant to do only one thing. For better team communication, the best solution is to use one application that can do all things together well.

Features, Benefits, Strengths

  • Team Chat and Messaging ‚Äì Glip provides a single, unified shared workspace for team collaboration. The free chat tool enables users to collaborate, work faster and work effectively. They can invite unlimited users, post unlimited messages, and chat in real time. It is now easier to respond in an instant, stay updated on projects, and improve communication. Team messaging allows all members to work on a project, presentation, or file, without having to open different applications, jump around, and spend a hard time tracking them.
  • Task Management and Shared Calendar ‚Äì The team collaboration software has task management built right in. When team conversation leads to tasks, users can easily create, assign, share, and track tasks in any team or conversation. The unified platform keeps everything in one place, so there is no need to switch apps or track items in different locations. A fully integrated team calendar allows team members to do almost everything in the platform. They can create a new task, a new event, a new note, or share a file or a photo, right from the calendar.
  • File Sharing and Storage, Video Call, Screen Share, Native Apps, and more ‚Äì Glip allows users to share files from their local computers, from those stored in the workspace, or from integration with cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Evernote. They have unlimited file storage for free. The video chat feature can be used for one-on-one call or for an online team meeting. With the screen share feature, users can review files, web pages, and other content, ensuring that everyone is looking at the same thing at the same time. They can switch instantly between online video meetings and screen sharing. Native mobile apps for iOS and Android devices are available, as well as web and desktop apps for anywhere, anytime access.
