ICON finds Glip.
When Geran joined ICON as IT Manager, they were using another online communication platform. “It was okay,” he says, “but I could see problems coming. The version we were using was free, but it had limited file storage and limited search history. We’re a nonprofit, so we have to be careful with our budget. One of the first things I did as IT Manager was to research other tools for our student teams to collaborate.”
“A few things impressed me about Glip right away. First, it was free and didn’t have any limits on file storage, searchable history, messages, users, teams, or guests. Second, it had so much in one place, like an integrated team calendar and task manager. That was really important. The last thing we wanted for our international teams was a different tool for every part of their collaboration. Glip put it all in one place.”
Glip helps ICON’s student consultants go from strangers to team members in no time.
The third thing that Geran liked about Glip was how simple and intuitive the app was. “These students don’t have a lot of time to familiarize themselves with new applications when they start their client projects,” Geran says.
“With Glip, our project managers are able to get their new students set up and collaborating on Glip very quickly. And for time-sensitive projects like ours, that’s extremely valuable too.”
