We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Google Chat

I would highly recommend Google hangouts. It is extremely helpful in increasing communication, especially in an environment like the one we have here. We are a mobile workplace, with a lot of employees that work from home or in the field, and Google Hangouts helps connect everyone. It is the easiest way for people to quickly get answers or to make others aware of breaks, etc. As someone who hates talking on the phone, Google Hangouts is my preferred method of communication.

I have not needed to contact the support folks for Google Hangouts Chat, so I can't speak to this with any accuracy. The online instructions are fairly clearly written, so it is fairly intuitive to start with. I did not feel the need to use the support people anyway.

Alternatives Considered

Avaza

Avaza's time tracking capabilities are much more detailed than Upwork's. Upwork focuses on simplicity, using a simple on/off button and a spot for taking notes about each project, but Avaza gives you more to work with, allowing you to add detailed notes and specify tasks.

Prior to Google Hangouts, our company used Spark. Spark was not integrated into our email, therefore it couldn't be easily accessed in the same browser. With Spark we also couldn't search our emails for keywords in a conversation, searching had to be done manually. The one feature I enjoyed about Spark was a request to get a user's attention: If I had an urgent question and I wanted to ensure the recipient saw my message/question, I would request their attention and the message screen would pop up on their screen.
