Nathan searches for a unified collaboration workspace.
“I wanted to put everything in a single place,” Nathan explains. “Chats, file sharing, task management, editorial calendar planning. All of it.”
During his research, Nathan found a business article listing favorite online collaboration apps. “Glip was on the list,” he says, “So we gave it a try. Once we got rolling on Glip, we fell in love with the app.”
Glip gave Nathan exactly what he was looking for, a unified workspace that his entire team of remote workers could use to collaborate and communicate efficiently. “We create teams in the app to work on projects that just those people are involved in,” he says. “I can create a task—say, a story I’d like someone to write—and then drop in the relevant information, ask a writer if she’d like to take it on, and then communicate with her over Glip throughout the entire project. When we’re done and the story is ready for publication, I can mark that task complete.”
Because the team’s workflow is so much more streamlined now than it’s ever been, Glip has helped Nathan accomplish something with the publication he didn’t think was possible. “I now have my top stories scheduled out weeks in advance. That’s a level of planning we weren’t ever able to enjoy before Glip.”
The benefits go even beyond better organization and communication.
Using the Glip app has done a lot for LakeExpo.com. “I can track everything that’s happening with my team and stay on top of every detail I need to remember,” Nathan says. “Glip has become my own ‘don’t-forget-about-this’ app.” But now that the entire organization is on Glip, LakeExpo.com is discovering other ways the collaboration app is benefiting the company.
“Glip is even helping us to strengthen relationships with our advertising customers,” explains Nathan. “If a writer learns a new business is setting up shop on the Lake, she can let our sales reps know so they can give a heads-up to one of our advertisers who might be able to serve that business. That type of valuable real-time communication is so much easier now, which makes it much more likely to happen because our whole internal team is on Glip.”
