Today Glip, Inc., developer of Glip, the modern business messaging
platform used by thousands of teams and businesses worldwide, announced
integrations with industry leading applications Jira, Harvest, and
Github as the first phase in its integrations initiative. This new
capability unifies the communication of disparate services into a
cohesive conversation that results in richer context, easier

The Glip conversation platform is designed to improve team performance
by directly addressing its most important driver – team communication.
Research shows that 50% of team performance improvement is attributable
to the mode of communication. Glip allows teams and companies to
communicate faster, and get more done in less time because the work
produced lives in the conversation. Instead of jumping from tool to tool
to get things done while being flooded with email notifications and
convoluted “Reply Alls”, Glip contains the essential apps everyone
needs, from video conferencing to shared calendars, task management to
file sharing with automatic version control. Today Glip extends this
capability to include content and actions generated in other cloud
“Our vision has always been to disrupt business communications with
secure messaging that not only has built-in productivity tools, but also
integrates with other applications our customers use and love. The first
wave of integrations announced today is an example of our focus to drive
business value to our customers,” said Peter Pezaris, CEO Glip. “While
our core app tightly integrates modern business messaging with the
essential productivity tools, these partnered integrations extend Glip’s
benefits to other important activities performed by millions of people
every day. If you are a user of Jira, Harvest, or GitHub, you can bring
them into the Glip conversation and be more productive right away.”
David Chan, SVP Sales and Marketing of Engage3, and author of ‘The
Virtual Office: Success Tools for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses’
added: “Glip is enabling our organization to easily operate as a
cohesive unit. Without sacrificing features, the intuitive design is
critical in our startup environment. We've integrated other platforms
into Glip, which has now become the backbone for our company’s internal

Glip is also announcing today the availability of emoji, which makes
communication more powerful and engaging. Work should be fun with a
purpose. In addition to the many familiar ideograms included in the app,
any Glip user can upload and assign emoji of their own liking. Many
people create these characters to illustrate complex ideas, and they
have an extra benefit of adding fun to the conversation.
