I’m hooked on Hipchat – the communications platform designed specifically for business team chatting. It comes loaded with functionality to include group and private chat, file sharing, video calling, and screen sharing among others.
And the beauty for me is being able to integrate HipChat with other popular business applications, like Gmail, Mailchimp, Trello and about 140 other applications.
Here are some of the benefits of using Hipchat:
- Advanced communications and collaboration features such as video calling, screen sharing, and file sharing let users do more than just talk with each other.
- Compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and yes, even Linux. A web app version is also available for those who don’t want to install stuff on their devices.
- Connect and communicate with the rest of the team with its mobile connectivity.
Work with other leading business solutions and systems with HipChat’s vast integration features.
- Customize how you get notified with updates and missed messages. Get notified with in-app, email, SMS, and mobile push notifications.
Hipchat is rapidly becoming my command centre through which I run a lot of my daily ops apps.
Here’a a quick and light video that explains Hipchat in a taco shell 😉
Then take a look at this video for a more in depth view of how one company uses Hipchat as their main collaboration and communication tool:
That’s a brief overview of Hipchat and it’s potential. I’m a newbie with the platform. But as they say, the best way to learn something is to teach it, so I have a series of planned Hipchat tutorials coming up.
If you have any resources on the Net you can point me too that would be much appreciated.
