Overall Satisfaction with Glip

As a tech startup, we were looking for a way to streamline tools. And I needed a good task management system that will seamlessly integrate with iCal. We didn't want to have to use four different applications to communicate internally and two others to communicate externally.
Glip allows us to do it all in one place! It provides us with task management, project management, scheduling, chat, and video conferencing. And you can set up an iCal calendar to automatically drop tasks into their timeslot. I love that feature.
  • Task management -- both as an individual and as a team. It's easy to assign tasks and monitor progress.
  • Video conferencing -- we use Glip to host calls. I appreciate the ability to host a call and manage tasks immediately within the same application.
  • Scheduling -- schedule meetings and tasks, and they will immediately appear in your calendar.
  • User Experience -- it can sometimes be confusing knowing whether you're looking at your personal tasks or that of the group.
  • Glip has made it immensely more practical to manage team meetings, coordinate tasks, and hold video conferences. While some other apps might have a simpler user interface, you pay the price in having to adopt multiple applications to get the job done.
Zoom, Slack, and Wunderlist are all great applications. They do a good job at one core focus. If your team is already familiar with these applications and satisfied with them, you can stick with them. I found Slack confusing and difficult to learn, as did others when onboarding. Zoom and Wunderlist both have a solid user interface and do their jobs well -- not many complaints from them. I just valued simplicity and ease of adoption, which made us look at Glip as one app to do it all.
I would recommend Glip for any company that wants to minimize applications, which in my mind should be every company. If I can easily schedule meetings, manage tasks and projects, and communicate via chat and video in one place, why would I need to learn any other application?
However, if you must use the tools your clients use, you might be forced to use Slack, Skype, Zoom, or a number of other apps. But I would encourage your clients to adopt one system, if at all possible.
