Glip was created by Ring Central as a tool for office communication and team collaboration. It allows for users to create chat rooms for different topics and projects, share files, and communicate with each other on any device. The standout feature for Glip is video chatting, which is available on mobile devices and in all price plans, including the free version. The video chat feature includes screen sharing and whiteboards.
If you are thinking of going the paid route for a collaborative team messaging app, this is probably the least expensive option. And it still offers a lot of features and quality. Although the focus is on team chat, Glip also allows users to assign tasks and includes a robust and fully integrated team calendar. This means that Glip could easily be used as an all around work management tool for SMBs. Although Glip doesn't offer a timeline, drop and drag, or dependency feature that may be helpful for larger, more complicated projects, Glip does go above and beyond the basics, even in its free version.
