Easily Forgettable

Pros

Our company introduced Glip as another form of up to date communication. It was rolled out and very easy to use.

Cons

Unfortunately, there was so much introduced so quickly that Glip was pushed to the background and forgotten about. It’s easily forgettable and we moved on without it.

Glip for the win!

Pros

Our entire office, and all remote employees can all communicate and develop relationships without moving from the desk or interrupting our work!

Cons

We don’t like how it is combined with the phones. Getting texts and chats is annoying sometimes on the same program.

Glip makes professional Instant Messaging quick and easy

Pros

We use Glip to quickly talk about important things where we do not have the time to sit aside to chat. We can share files, assign tasks, and collaborate in one setting instantly.

Cons

RingCentral just integrated RingCentral Phone with Glip. It was a little buggy at first, but is getting better with each update released.

Amazing software

Pros

We do not use this to its full advantage just yet, as it has great chat, file sharing, and task management uses, however we use it mostly for task management, and it has been a life saver. I totally recommend it.

Cons

The amount of features in this software could be overwhelming for some. However, with time it can be a huge assistance to any company.

Low quality Slack clone

Pros

Glip has apps for majority of platforms and is cheaper than Slack. It's being actively developed, so missing features are starting to show up.

Cons

Well, it's not that great overall compared to Slack. The major pain point is how it handles notifications (although they are working on it.) Since my company moved to Glip from Slack I started to miss a lot of important conversations since Glip won't notify you when someone uses your name (they have to explicitly mention you.) Until now Glip didn't have a way to notify you when someone direct messages you—again, they would have to mention you. The workaround was to enable notifications for everything, but that's not an option when you're part of a bigger organization. Another issue was (this feature is now in beta) showing how many direct messages or mentions you have in your dock. They would only show all unread messages from all your channels, so that could quickly grow to 1000+.

Another thing besides notifications is lack of easy sign-in on mobile. Slack would send you a magic link you tap to sign in. It's especially annoying, since I'm being logged out on my mobile app quite often.

Last but not least, design. It's a type-heavy app and typography simply doesn't cut it. Slack's look and feel is way way better.

Overall, if you're looking for a Slack alternative, you may consider something else.

GLIP Social Workspace

Pros

Being able to organize your workflow and collaborate with colleagues makes GLIP a phenomenal tool to boost office productivity. The new integration with Ringcentral's phone system makes it a single spot for your communications, helping to alleviate needing multiple tabs running different applications.

Cons

It can be a little difficult to navigate and is not the most intuitive design, but once you learn the layout it becomes second nature. There definitely is a learning curve that some employees may resist.

Great Project Management Tool

Glip has transformed our team communication efforts. I no longer worry if a task is going to be completed on time or forgotten. WIth Glip, we are able to stay organized and communicate more effencently. It has met our needs well.

Pros

Glip has allowed my marketing team to work and communicate more efficiently. We market 40+ events annually, and Glip has allowed us to organize each event marketing plan, assign team-specific tasks, and upload documents with ease so that everyone on the team is informed. The organization and task management capabiliites of this software has been one of the best communications tools that we have ever used as a department.

Cons

The task assignment feature has been vital to our team, but it does not have the option of changing the task progress. Tasks can only be listed as incomplete or complete. I would love to have the capability, to change a task status to options like: working, pending approval, assistance needed, etc. so that our team can know what tasks others are struggling with or at what stage a task might be in.

Great tool for communication

Pros

Glip is great for boosting team communication. Glip makes it easier for everyone in our company to stay in contact and is much more efficient than using email.

Cons

No complaints about Glip. However, there are a lot of similar chat/messaging tools and Glip is just as comparable as any of the others.

It works, but I miss a lot of messages

Pros

It has a nice clean design, and it allows us to create teams and private chat groups.

Cons

The notifications need work - for some reason, I don't always get notified of incoming messages...often I don't realize I've gotten a message in the desktop app until I look at my phone and see a notification there.

Glip experience

Pros

I think it is easy to use and offers a lot of options for you to make your settings to what fits you best.

Cons

I would like the notifications to work a little better when using the software from my phone. Sometimes my alerts don't go off.

Love it.

Pros

Probably one of the best business chat software's we have used. It's integration with the RingCentral phone system makes this app a winner. From setting up different teams for different projects or departments to the mobile app I love almost everything about this tool.

Cons

I said almost everything earlier, giphy. While I love gif's and they can be hilarious, in the work environment sometimes they can get out of control. I'm pretty sure we have at least 2 channels that are nothing but gif conversations. While personally I find this awesome, professionally it can be very distracting.

Glip works to foster collaboration

Pros

Its easy to use and the layout are intuitive. This helps users feel comfortable with the interface making it more likely to be used. There is sufficient functionality to make it very useful without being overwhelming.

Cons

I wish it had better administrator controls over groups/teams and a high level view of how content is being created in the organization.

Glip has been a good collaboration tool for our company. I love that you can quickly message team members, attach files, and instantly start a video call. It is pretty cool how the RingCentral phone and Glip are now integrated into one solution.

I liked the name Glip, but understand why they changed it to RingCentral :)

Glip has Revolutionized Our Workflow and Communication

Pros

Excellent messaging features, including practical things like tagging people, keyboard shortcuts, and inline attachment previews, as well as fun features like GIF's and Memes. Where Glip really stands out from the competition however is in its productivity features, and how easy it is to manage tasks, teams, notes, and calendar. Very versatile and accessible anywhere, as there are phone, desktop, and web apps all available. Vibrant, responsive community and support.

Cons

Honestly can't think of any drawbacks to the software at this time.

Pros

This has cool social things like gifs, you can track the files shared in the chats, you can make check list .

Excellent Collaborative Tool

Pros

In spite of being a long time Slack user, I decided to give Glip a try internally since our company was already leveraging Ring Central for VoIP and Meetings. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that no core feature sets were lacking and to find a couple of extras that were missing in Slack. The most useful of those extras has been task assignment/management.

Cons

In a perfect world the Google Calendar integration would be a bit more robust and flexible, but I'm fairly certain that's on Google anyway.
