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 communication and better decisions. The result of surveying thousands of its customers, Glip will introduce additional integrations in coming weeks that further enhance its capabilities. Also announced today Glip Webhooks, which allow anyone to connect the service of their choice into Glip.
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 services.
“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 communications."
Sri Vemuri, Marketing Manager at Harvest says, ”Harvest integrations help bring time tracking into your workflow––with Harvest and Glip, your team can trigger their timers faster, and stay focused on the task at hand.” http://www.getharvest.com/
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.
The Glip conversation platform is free to use for all users to access for an unlimited time up to 10,000 posts, 5GB of storage, or 500 minutes of video calls. Subscription plans start at $5/user/month or $50 per year for unlimited posts, 10GB of storage, and 1,000 minutes of video calls.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
