RingCentral is a free team messaging and collaboration app designed to give professional teams a unified workspace online to get their work done. For Glip users, that includes real-time chat, sharing and storing files, assigning and tracking tasks, sharing team calendars, pulling in notifications from other apps, and even hosting video calls where participants can share their screens.
Of course, RingCentral isn’t the only free team collaboration app out there. Other apps, like Twist, offer free versions too. But as you'll see below, Glip offers more, which is one reason so many teams choose Glip instead.
Chat in real time anytime, anywhere, on any device.
Start video meetings with one click on any device.
Create teams, assign tasks, and manage your calendar to stay on track and deliver projects faster.
File sharing and
Send files and mark up images and PDFs to get instant feedback and streamline workflows.
Work seamlessly with critical business apps, like Google Drive, Box, and Jira.
Team collaboration can mean a lot of different things. If you set your team up on the Twist app's free version, you'll be missing out on some features.
With RingCentral’s free app, team collaboration means the ability to share and store not just some files in your shared workspace but as many files as you’d like. It also means you can add comments directly onto those files for your teammates to see as well as a built-in task management tool, calendar, and even limited use of video calls and screen sharing.
Check out how much more you get free with Glip than with Twist.
As you can see above, free team collaboration apps can be pretty thin on features, offering mostly just a real-time message platform.
But with RingCentral, our free app gives you robust, enterprise-level goodies like unlimited file sharing, an in-app task manager, and limited use of our video calling feature.
This is a favorite of many Glip users. Even with our free version, you can integrate as many of Glip’s dozens of third-party apps as your team wants. That means you can pull notifications and alerts right into the Glip conversation of your choice from other apps you rely on, like Asana, Zendesk, GitHub, and Trello.
The free version of Twist can be a great entry-level messaging app, but your team may outgrow that version quickly. They give you just 5GB of total file storage across all of your conversations, and they’ll let you integrate with only five third-party apps.
With Glip, you'll get unlimited file sharing and storage, and you can integrate with as many of the 50+ third-party apps we support as you want. You’ll even have unlimited searchable history of your team’s conversations with our free version.
Glip scales up to meet your team's growing needs, without needing to upgrade to a paid version.
When you investigate Twist's pricing plans, you'll find that they start offering 24/7 support with their paid service.
At Glip, we want your team to be successful whether you’re paying us or not. So we’re always here to help 24/7/365 with award-winning customer service from our parent company, RingCentral, the leading cloud communications solution provider. Yep, even on our free accounts!
“Glip helps us stay connected on projects even with our team working from various locations with different schedules. We are even able to loop in volunteer staff and workers to conversations without a cost burden.”
