This free collaboration app may be the productivity magic bullet you need

team collaboration app

If your overflowing inbox is a constant source of shame and anxiety, instead of  deleting all, consider a tool proven to help reduce email clutter and increase productivity: a team collaboration app.

Many companies have discovered that collaboration apps—think Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Flock, to name a few—can be effective at reducing the back-and-forth of email chains by streamlining internal communication. But isn’t that just swapping a mountain of email for a relentless barrage of instant messages from people who expect you to reply immediately?

If it is, then you’re doing something wrong.

The best team collaboration apps do so much more than allow employees to chat with an individual coworker or an entire team in real time. They also provide features to foster collaboration, enhance workflow, and increase team performance. Glip is one such feature-packed app: It offers video chat, unlimited messages, storage, and integrations, as well as an impressive array of special capabilities aimed at boosting productivity and engagement, including team messaging, file sharing, and task management—and, get this, it’s completely free to use.

Let’s see how Glip’s powerful features can have a positive impact on a company’s bottom line.

Superior team messaging: Communication may be at the center of teamwork, but only if that communication can be easily tracked and accessed whenever and wherever team members need it. (This is where email can become burdensome and overwhelming.)

Glip’s team messaging hub organizes and prioritizes communication by project or business functions so employees can reduce email clutter and information overload and instead focus on the work that needs to be accomplished. The best part? Messaging—along with posts, storage, and integrations—is unlimited. Pretty impressive for a free product, right?

Convenient file sharing: Having instant access to all assets needed for a project is essential for a team to maintain momentum. That’s why Glip’s file sharing feature is so valuable for businesses, allowing users to share files from their computer (or pulled through integrations with cloud storage tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Evernote) directly into the conversation stream. This way you don’t waste time toggling back and forth between apps or searching your beast of an inbox for project-related documents. Everything you need is right there on one screen in Glip.

Another convenient feature that streamlines productivity: collaborative document editing, including solid image and PDF markup tools. And guess how much these features cost? Yup, it’s free.

Task management: Glip’s team calendar and built-in task management tool are a couple of its standout features. Users can easily create, assign, share, and track tasks in any team or conversation—without having to switch over to another project management app.

Not only that, but Glip’s task management is fun to use, especially if you’re someone who loves to organize: Color code tasks based on urgency or category. Filter tasks by status, projects, assignees, deadline, teams, and more. The sophisticated interface makes it easier than ever to track team progress and hold your employees accountable. And you can’t beat the price, especially because it’s… one more time… free.

The only way to really know if a messaging app can benefit your business is simply by giving it a try, which is another reason why Glip is an attractive option for many companies—there’s no lost cost if you decide it’s not right for you.

The struggle of emptying your inbox is real, but you can save yourself the hassle by trying Glip free today.
